Plague Doctor Mask by Zwid Plague Doctor Mask by Zwid
For Spamspamspam
Okay so heres my first ever attempt at a leather plague doctor's mask.
First Spam and I took life casts of our faces. On the life cast I sculpted a beak, from there I taped up the sculpt. I then cut the tape into pattern pieces and transfered it to paper. I tweaked the pattern a little then cut out the pieces. It's held together with leather lace. We then moulded the leather to the shape of Spam's delicious face. I painted it with acrylic paints to give it that rustic look and filled wide gaps that were created when we inserted the lenses with some clay. I then painted that shit up.
TA DA.
Oh, Spam's mask has only a little leather on the bottom pattern piece cause she wants to breathe...cause she's some kind of freak.

Yaayayya now I get to start mine!

This is very cool. I'm trying to get a mask started but I cannot figure out how to get the underside shape right that will cause the sides to stick out.

If you could kindly lend a hand and instruct me as to how to construct one of similar make, I would be really grateful for even the slightest hint. This mask is by far the best one I have ever seen. Others look bulky and short, cumbersome and awkward. Long have I searched for one with a beak as slender, narrow, and long as yours, and this one is perfect.

I am now going to beg shamelessly for a tutorial!!!!!!!!

I have been hired to be a Renaissance Faire performer for this year and we get to create our own characters. I desperately want to be a plague doctor but all the masks are far too expensive to afford. I need to be able to make a sturdy one that will last about 3 months of long weekends.

Help a girl out! I want to convince people their going to die before they leave the faire!
