HDC Cosplay does cosplay (as you might have surmised) and fabrication, and they take commissions. Their projects run the gamut, and the one that caught my eye was their take on the Black Mage from Final Fantasy. HDC made the ensemble a while ago (the earliest photo in the build progress is dated April 2015) but recently revamped it to make a new mask. The handmade costume involved making a hat with a wire armature frame, crafting and tooling leather cuffs, designing glowing eyes, and constructing the staff (photos below). HDC says:
All custom from scratch made aside the boots and pants. Pants were dyed and airbrushed. All hand tooled leather and spell book. Staff is a mix of expanding foam and celluclay.
It’s a morph suit mask with heat molded acrylic, a light yellow paint coat and reflective tape back lit with leds. I need to make a new one and I’ll be sculpting molding and using a tar bender clear to cast them. They sit on my eyebrows.
Flip through a massive build album detailing the progress on the Black Mage costume at Facebook.
