So, I want to make my own mask for Halloween this year, but I'm not sure how to make one. I'd like to do something a bit nicer than a simple paper mache job, but I have no idea what to do or how to get started. The design is going to be more-or-less a skull, but with some added stuff on it.

I know the simple answer would be to just buy a skull mask since they're everywhere, but I want it to actually conform to my face and I'd like to stick a black spandex head cover in it (something like a ski mask but thinner) so that you can't see my eyes or the back of my head. Any advice?

I made a serial killer mask once. Still have it actually, and it's awesome. I took a plastic hockey mask and cut up some thin black leather into a bunch of pieces, stitched that together in face-shape messily with white string, stuck that on the mask with rivets all around the outside, and then splashed it with red paint.

That's a felony, brah.

I'm having trouble picturing what you're describing. Do you have pics of it?

Sounds like Corey Taylor's old mask.

Make a mold out of clay, fill it with something.


I like this idea. What do I fill it with, though? I know they make molding plastics for stuff like this, but I don't know what they're called, how much they cost, or where I could find them.

Just use your face lololololololol.

They have some sort of filler you can use for the clay mold, i would suggest going to a costume shop or somewhere that deals with those kinds of masks. Or google it

Or if you really want to make/ customize one yourself. Buy a cheap skull mask
(make sure its latex not vinyl etc)
Buy some liquid latex and go to town, Heres a tutorial if you want to do it yourself
