“Honor is the blade’s edge” , while we are not talking about blades today, what we focus on is the cosplay mask for the Fist of Shadow Blood Moon Akali.
- 5mm and 10mm thick EVA sheets,
- White, red and lake blue propylene
- Red ribbon
Firstly, get your measurements right and outline an ellipse of the face shape on a 5mm
thick EVA sheet. Cut it and we got a basic pattern.
Then, at the four corners, cut off a small triangle piece separately, and try to stand the mask to check out the expected shape. If need, cut small slice of EVA off too at the two sides.
When done with that, glue the edges together and attach 4 horns as pictured.Draw eyes and mouth shallowly and hollow them out.
As to the figures on the face, draw it on the 3mm thick EVA sheet and cut it off.
Check out the whereabouts first and glue it on as the picture below:To make this easy to carry, we will make the sharp angels detachable.
Use 10mm thick EVA sheet to create the angles, it is also acceptable to adopt two 5 thick EVA sheet. As to how to fasten them on the mask, add two round buckles at the backside. You can insert the angles in and strengthen it with glue or double faced adhesive tape.
Brush latex and wrap the angle with tissues. When it got dried, apply one more layer of latex. Shape the angle a little before it fully dried.
Iron wires also work, but it is too heavy, you may try other materials.
Then color it into golden.Next big step is coloring on the face. You can easily mess up at this step, so be careful and refer to the art image at times. We made it and check out how it looks like, It isn’t that hard as thought, right?This is not an end, we are just finishing the mask part, and we will share a tutorial on how to make the Akali weapon very soon, so stay tuned.
Moreover, the Nurse Akali costume has been available at miccostumes.com together with
other League of Legends cosplays. As for the Blood Moon Akali costume, just a few more day to come.
