Nice! Even if you're not going phantom, you can always use the same design as an undead :) just add more white, and make a matching rags costume! That skullface is something larpers can still take an example at! :)

Finding this was very helpful. I have been considering going as a Cardassian [link] for Halloween, and the brows and cheekbones are exactly what I'll be working on, although I'm afraid I'm being too ambitious. Do you think its doable?

Hi! I'm pretty sure I helped brainstorm with someone regarding Cardassian makeup once before, although I never saw photos of the finished look. The brows and cheekbones are totally doable with this method, and even the forehead spoon and chin if you want. The ears may be possible, although I have never tried working on my ears. The only thing really impossible with this method is the neck ridges. Those require a much more professional setup.

So yeah, it might be a little ambitious for a first-time use of latex, but it's very doable once you know the technique. I suggest getting a good amount of latex and practicing a few times before Halloween. If you want to chat more about the nuts and bolts of working with latex feel free to note me. :)

So, I need to make this mask and I want to be able to take it on and off... well it work for this, too?
SilverDrgnbane Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Not really, no. Taking it off would damage it, and replacing it would be messy.

To make it skin tight, you will need to get a lifecast done of your face. From there you can mold the mask on the face with clay, take a mold of that, and then use the new mold and the face cast to cast your mask out of a variety of better materials, things like silicone or resin. The result would be a perfectly fitting mask. If done right it might not even need much to stay on.

There are tutorials and things online. Check them out. :)

How do you protect your eyebrows?
SilverDrgnbane Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I talked about that in the tut and on the video, but basically I just rub a wet bar of soap on them and then cover them with a sheet of tissue paper tacked down on the edges with latex. If you look at the vids it'll make more sense. ^^;
