I wrote previously about our weekend of making fancy Princess/Villains masquerade masks for this Friday's Sinister Soiree at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (no, we're not going, but we know someone who is!) Here are pictures of the finished masks, as promised!
Each mask has its own design and personality. In total, it took 2 days of work to make the masks, about 6hrs per day. We made 9 masks in total, so that's a little over an hour per mask. I think that's a pretty reasonable amount of effort for a kids craft, and so I feel good about recommending making fancy masks as a great Halloween costume project for just about anyone! It was easy and so, so much fun! Enjoy the photos of the masks, alongside the "inspiration" images (found online) that we used to create the design.
UPDATE: Folks have been asking for more detailed photos of the masks and I do have lots of photos I can share. I will have to do separate posts for each mask because Squarespace is struggling to handle all these images; I'll be adding posts with detail shots for each mask in the coming weeks between now and Halloween, so be sure to check back. I hope that it gives you ideas for your own masks! Which design are you most excited to see more of and I'll start with that one first: let me know in the comments below!
UPDATE UPDATE: To read all about how much fun the masks were in action, head over to Kenny the Pirate's review of the Villains Sinister Soiree!
