Awfully Fawn'd of You







The above photos chart the path of my fawn mask that I made for the Labyrinth of Jareth masquerade I recently attended.  I initially imagined a flatter, more 1960s children's book style of palette for the mask, but certain masks like metallics (or so I've found).

The base is papier mache, with the horns and details made from Crayola's Model Magic.  There's light armature wire in the horns, a tight band of elastic to secure it, and some felt hot glued to the inside for comfort.  The ears are made from cereal boxes, and the paint is acrylic.

I've been told it looks like a jackalope, but in this instance I'd call it a jackaLopes. :p
