Add a Deku Mask Prop To Your Legend of Zelda Cosplay
You can turn up the quality of any costume by adding some well-made props, and a Deku Mask would be a great addition to a Link costume. Instructables user meanlilkitty built a great version of the mask from foam and papier mache. There aren’t too many supplies, and other than investing a time and elbow grease, it’s relatively simple. I’m especially fascinated by how she made the eyes:
The eyes I made out of yellow celluloid with orange paint to make the “glow”. Once you like the color and shape, glue into place on the inside of the mask. The leaves are silk leaves from Michaels and were a bit tricky to glue. One I found three leaves I liked that had the right color and shape, I took them off the fake plant and removed the stem backing. Now that the leaves are softer and easier to bend, I was able to glue them to the inside of the mask, then bend them while the glue dried so they could stand erect on top of the mask and not flop over.
