Black Aggie by undead-medic Black Aggie by undead-medic
My most recent mask project. At least it started as a mask, it somehow ended up being a whole head.

Made this because I didn't want to be walking around RMFC next month looking like a douche with just a tail or something, and since I'm not a fursuiter either the logical thing was to do what I do anyway and make some kind of mask. And since skulls are my thing, this happened.

It was going to be a deer or dog skull initially because those are mostly what I have on hand for reference. But it morphed into a somewhat stylized bird skull instead because pretty much nobody does birds whereas everyone and their cousin does dogs and wolves. That and I didn't want to look like I was trying to copy Breynz (this amazing suit [link]), because I'm not a loser and that was never the intention.

The visibility inside it is quite good, the nostrils are breathable so you don't suffocate inside and the back opens and closes with hidden snaps.

Materials:
Paper, cardboard, duct tape, paper mache, black screen mesh, ski mask thing, sew-in snaps, black thread, black fabric, felt, hot glue, acrylic paint, satin finish spray, rooster feathers

Hey :) I am a third year animator in London currently producing my major film. I was wondering if I could get permission to 'use' your mask as inspiration for one of my deadlier characters. It is beautiful and creepy and would be absolutely perfect for him. This is a link to my showreel with short clips of previous work if you're interested: vimeo.com/84610820

Hope to hear from you soon  :)
