When you want to dress as a blazing skeleton that rides a motorcycle, Marvel has you covered with the character Ghost Rider. Flames roll off the supernatural character’s head, and Redditor paul-blarts-wife captured the fiery look with her Ghost Rider costume. She put together the cosplay and asked a shop borrow the bike for a photo op. She explained on Reddit how she made the head:
Yes indeed, its a papier mache head cast (i think with a layer of plaster?) with paperclay sculpted forms, then painted, hobby paper “fire”, and paperclay teeth. Sadly I did not write a diary for the process which I should have done. Every single spike is handmade by me from paperclay and silver spray paint
The jaw is connected by elastics, its tricky to make it work in such a tight mask but its possible.
