Mask idea

Postby Wing Saber » Mon Apr 01, 2013 7:51 pm

For theator, I am creating a mask of which I am going to have to create a character. I thought I'd see if anyone here had ideas. So far, these are two great ideas I've had:

The Optimus Primal mouthguard, with the bars above and below the mouth
Half-black half-white, kind of like Deathstroke from Arrow. (In which case the character would have multiple personalities

When I took Stagecraft in my senior year of high school, we had to make plaster masks for an assignment one time and I made (or at least attempted to make) mine look like Doctor Doom.

I say "attempted" since I was going by memory rather than using a visual reference. So mine ended up looking similar to but not quite the same as Doom's mask since I added in details which I thought were on his mask but really weren't. :oops:

That same year of high school, I also took Intro to Drama in which at one point were studying up on the Greek theatre drama and plays about their mythology, and came to a point where we were assigned to make (non-wearable) gallon bottle masks of a particular Greek god, goddess, or mythological character.

I chose to make mine be Poseidon, and used none other than the Seacon combiner King Poseidon (Japanese counterpart of Piranacon) from Transformers: Chojin Masterforce, for reference. But this time I did use a visual aid (a drawing of his head) and ended up making a fairly close approximation of his head, but nothing too fancy since the materials we used were ordinary "arts & crafts" stuff like colored construction paper, scissors, glue, etc.

And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow.

Sabrblade: Yes, since posting this I have decided I want a doom-style hood and cape for my mask.
It would be cool to do a full mask, but that would be rather difficult.


Also, I mentioned above the Primal mouth, I'm also considering a regular Optimus Prime faceplate for it.

I'm not really looking to replicate an already existing mask, I'm just drawing elements from already existing masks or characters

I've decided on the following:

Half black/half white
Optimus Prime style Mouthguard
black side will have sunglass lens for eye, white side will be open eyed

If I can find a way to do it, I'll to the hood and cape for it.

Say, how did you two make your masks? I was going to use Wonderflex, but then I realized how expensive it would be.

My not-Doctor Doom mask was made, IIRC, from a plaster mold we had. We then used paints and other arts & crafts materials for additional details.

My Poseidon "mask" was just an empty plastic water gallon jug turned upside-down and with colored construction paper glued/and/or taped onto it.
