Instructables user vspencer was inspired by Wonder Woman — especially by the design for Dr. Poison. She decided to make a replica of the character’s ceramic mask using 3D printing techniques. She started by taking a 3D scan of her face (she was fortunate enough to have access to one) and then used the scan to design the pieces of the mask. Once the three separate segments were printed, vspencer added six-seven coats of primer filler.
Here’s how she rigged the mask to stay on her face:
I ended up making 5 loops out of fishing line. This is definitely a trial and error process, but here’s the order that I did the loops in.
Fit the loop behind my left ear to hold the nose/cheek piece on my face. This is shown in the first picture.
Attach the chin and the nose piece with a loop at the corner of the mouth.
Fit a loop behind your right ear, from the chin piece. The loop should be long enough to fit underneath your chin/right jaw.
Attach the chin to the appropriate side of the jaw.
Attach the jaw to the nose/cheek piece.
