My girlfriend and I were “lock” and “barrel” from The Nightmare Before Christmas. We decided to be classy and make our own mask and costume.
glue= 1$ (Already Had)
newspaper= 2$ (Already Had)
paint 5$ (Already Had)
pants and shirt from salvation army = 5$
pip cleaners 1$ (Already Had)
First I bought a plain mask from acmoore then pushed it into some foam-core shape. It was a child’s mask so I had to cut the chin out.Ducked taped it from behind.
Then I enlarged the eye balls and started making a dome shape structure for the paper mache to lay on.
Then I got even crazier with the strips of tape along with some supports around the mask.
After layers of newspaper and mache I make a paste in my blendineee mixing paper flower and water.
Then I used pipe cleaners for the mouth shape and hot glue for the teeth. The pipecleaners will help create depth in the mouth.
Then layer 2 or three times around the mouth.
Couple coats of paint and all that is left to do is to fade around the eyes.
Final of me and my little girly.
