Simple Superhero Mask

superhero mask

Need a form-fitting mask for a costume? It’s incredibly easy to make a basic mask, and the simple component can become part of tons of costumes. It’s great for superheroes, swashbucklers, faeries, you name it. You can start with a basic color and style, but you can embellish the base to make it as fancy as you wish. My Accidental Twist has a helpful and straightforward tutorial on making a mask from craft foam. Here’s how you start:

I started out with drawing the template for the mask. Fold the paper in half and draw a half mask to make it symmetrical when you unfold. I cut out with scissors because I didn’t have a craft knife of any sort. Unfold the template and place on the foam. Draw around it with a marker, and then cut-out as you wish. Using the scissors made it really hard to cutout the eye holes and they didn’t exactly come out as even as I wanted. If you’re using scissors, it’s best to start out with smaller holes than you’ve intended and work from there. Otherwise you’ll end up taking off more than you wanted to, like I did. Tape it to the styrofoam wig head. I used clear tape, which barely stuck, but I worked with what I had. You’d be better off with masking tape.
