(08/20/2004•11:00) Hawkman Costume [edit]S_leeloy 
Hello Community,

I want to do a hawkman costume (from the DC comic book);

Have no idea how to do the mask/helmet.

Any suggestions?

Ah-ha! Another comic-booker.

Well, I'd say use plastic mesh to do an underframe, and cover that with carved, or sheets of, foam. Sheets are easier with the beak, because it leaves it flexible. And running into things and having your beak break off is not very fun.

If you are doing the type of mask from the current run (with bird eyes), I'd suggest finding some clear ornament domes and painting an iris pattern on the inside. Leave the pupil clear. They look fairly real, as long as the browridge is thick enough to block direct sunlight.

And, ahem, I want to show off before I go.



Good luck on the costume!
