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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
