Propmaker and artist Lee Camara of Fev Studios creates a number of impressive props and costumes, and this Blue Spirit mask from Avatar: The Last Airbender is just one of them. Lee made the replica for the charity project Desert Bus for Hope. The Blue Spirit appeared in the first season of the cartoon, and Lee’s mask design is spot on. He used screen grabs from the animated series to make a template from paper and then traced them onto pine. The slab of pine was thick, so he cut it into slices before using the layers to make the shape of the mask. Once it was glued together, he used Dremels, chisels, sanding blocks, and other tools to shape the mask but paused to do an actual small sculpt of the mask to guide his carving. You can see some of how it took shape below.
