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.
