I’m probably not the best to answer this question because my experience with masks are fairly limited. If I were to make it i would make a buck out of various materials a use a process called vacuum forming to heat up plastic over the buck, but most people don’t have access to a vacuum former. Aluminum foil can be a good bace for a mask, it is easy to form and usually easy to get. There’s this material called friendly plastic that you can heat up and use to sculpt over the foil. Hope this helps!
Jumbo needed to be drawn.
My attempt at a Drakeon design.
Happy Smashing everyone!

Sorry not right now! Maybe in the future I’ll sell the older ones but I don’t do commission props, they’re just too time consuming and expensive to make and ship etc. Thanks for the tip I’ll check it out!
I entered the Shovel Knight T-Shirt design contest! I’d really appreciate a rating and a share if you can!
Anonymous said: Hi, so I was thinking about making a Brave Sword for a Fire Emblem cosplay. I was wondering what method you would use to make it. It has that criss-cross section in the middle, and I don't want to risk making the sword too weak...
I would use thin MDF, probably similar to the way I did the Levin sword, with wood the empty space in the middle shouldn’t really affect the rigidity of the sword as long as you’re not hitting things with it. I would use PVC for the handle and find some connectors for it for the pommel and hilt.

Oh i just ended up using the official art done by Yusuke Kozaki with a slight modification for clarity, here’s a link to it: http://imgur.com/qcM5Jqf
I scaled it up to 36 inches long and made sure to have screenshots from the reveal trailer to get the details. If you’re not shy about showing it please send it! I’d love to see the finished product. I can’t sew to save my life so I won’t be cosplaying him anytime soon.
