Death, a.k.a. the Grim Reaper, features in Castlevania as one of the biggest villains. The character has a costume with skull highlights and detailing and wields a gigantic scythe. Reneks Cosplay has an affinity for the character and spent two months making a detailed replica of Death’s mask, robe, and weapon. He did a wonderful job. He explained how he made the mask (you can see the work in progress photo below):
What I always do when making masks that I can’t see the whole face is wearing a mask as a basis (either crazy hour or one that they have by there) which already have a standard to which fits in perfectly with almost any face. Then there’s only modify it to generate the result that we want.
With death in addition to the mask, I used foam and flexible mass which I was molding to generate all those reliefs needed in a skull.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
