Seeking Vendetta Mask DIY Suggestions
April 8, 2006 2:04 AM   Subscribe

Any DIY guide links for making a wearable V for Vendetta Mask?

I thought about getting some green floral foam and carving out the shape myself, layering some clear wrap over it to seal it and making a plaster-of-paris mold of the shape, smoothing it down, painting and clear-coating.. but surely there must be an easier way perhaps?

Are there any corny-plastic (no auctions plz) Vendetta masks current for sale online that I can use as a mold instead of carving it out myself?

It's a Guy Fawkes mask. I don't know if you can use one of those as a mold, but its just like the one in the movie.

Here is what appears to be an inexpensive three-dimensional version of the mask. I make no assertions about the reputability of said retailer.

(Not so big on the reading comprehension, eh Justinian? The original question specified "no auctions", and the majority of the items to which you link are flat cardboard cutouts.)

Yes, reading comprehension not my thing.

Danelope appears to have the best lead; you can compare the details on the mask to those of the pricey 'prop' that DC Comics sells.

Response by poster: Much appreciated on the $5 mask link, Danelope (although it would end up being $13 with shipping -- yikes!).

I thought for sure someone must have at least attempted a flickr post on their Vmask project, or some [tron-guy]-like tutorial. *shrug*

Remember to put some sort of see-through-able black material on the inside of the eyeholes. The mask in Danelope's link looks way lamer than V's one, and I think the visible eyes are a big part of the lessening-of-the-menacing.

Response by poster: Agreed.
