    thanks all for the continued interest!

    I have finally completed the paintjob on the mask, I ended up revising the whole color scheme to be more accurate to the movie. I was rewatching the Bluray and saw that the creatures skin was much darker and dustier. I found it very difficult to match, but I am happy with how he currently looks. I have learned loads making this and I think I will re-visit this mask soon and maybe sculpt a new one and do a better mould so I am not cutting off air bubbles for days!

    here are some final photos, I need to get myself a Mangalore costume now!!

    This is awesome! Years ago a run of these was supposed to happen but it never took off!

    Lots of disappointed people!

    Very nice work!!

    Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the kind words.

    Stay tuned to this thread, I will be working on a set gloves to go with the mask over the next few weeks. I found some good reference of the Mangalore hands on the Propstore website. coming soon!!

    Update!!

    I've been working on and off on doing some gloves to go with the mask, I am planning on wearing them around the office at halloween for laughs.

    I started roughing out the shapes here, these are sculpted on top of a pair of polyurethane lifecast hands that a friend loaned me. He was also kind enough to allow me to heat the fingers of the hands so i could gently bend the two middle fingers together to give the Mangalore the correct amount of fingers.

    I found some high resolution photos of original gloves on Propstore, and matched them closely as possible
