With a title like Great King of Evil, there’s no question about Ganondorf’s alignment. He’s the main antagonist in the Legend of Zelda games, and he has a scary but cool character design. Cosplayer Jared, also known as Alpha Proto, built a detailed costume inspired by Ganondorf — so detailed that it looks like it’s right from the game. Jared started by sculpting the mask from Klean Klay. The modeling clay has been discontinued, but there are plenty of similar products you can try. When the clay sculpture was complete, Jared made a mold in order to cast the mask from Smooth-On silicone. He hand-painted the mask rather than airbrushing it and added on ears he purchased from Amazon. He explained:
The paints I used were oil paints mixed in Smooth-On dragon skin silicone with some mineral spirits. The mineral spirits [are] really oily, I don’t even know if the paint is cured. I ended up patting down the entire mask with dragon skin to try to seal the paint in case.
