The Beginning of Majora's Mask

I felt like quite the hipster Saturday night. Not only was I listening to the Strokes circa 2002, but I was also paper mache ing while everyone else in my apartment were playing Civilization V. I started making the form of the mask. I used a heart shaped balloon. When I realized that it wouldn't be big enough, I started taping newspaper to it with masking tape. This didn't take me too long. It was mostly taping, stepping back, re-evaluating, and taping some more. Here is the form I have decided on... for now....

I have added a first layer of paper mache. The first layer pointed out all the bumpy parts that need to be address eventually. I am thinking of using a homemade paper mache clay. Once I try it out, I will post the recipe I used and pictures of the finished product.


  1. Excited to see how it turns out! Wish I lived closer so we could have more crafting parties.

  2. Is someone going to C2E2 as the Skull Kid?
