Destiny Hunter Cosplay Mask WIP by SKSProps
Destiny Hunter Cosplay Mask WIP
It's still pretty rough but here is my start to a full Destiny Hunter costume.  The mask has been roughed out in monster clay and will be cast in resin when complete.  This mask will be refined over the next couple of weeks and I plan on having 3 versions available for fans by the end of November.

Prop / Costume Progress 2012 - 2014 SKS Props
Today marks another big milestone in my prop making career.  Two years ago today I finished my very first prop mask.  It was a real life version of the Borderlands Psycho Bandit.  It is awesome to look at my Dead Space and Dragon Age costumes and see how far I have come.  I just want to say thanks to all of my friends, fans, and family!!

HTTYD Astrid Cosplay WIP
Here is a WIP shot of the Astrid costume I am making my little girl for Halloween.  Most of the Axe, shoulder pads, and leather strips are made of EVA foam.  The bird skulls and spikes around the skirt are resin cast.  I still need to make her arm bands and fur hood but the costume is close to completion.

You can see more of the process on my Facebook page here www.facebook.com/StevenKSmithP…

Here are the bird skulls I made for my daughters Astrid cosplay.  They were hand sculpted out of monster clay, molded and cast out of resin.  I also sculpted the spikes for the leather armor.  

If you need a set for yourself I am selling skull and spike kits in my etsy shop here www.etsy.com/listing/206277854…

What kind of material are your psycho masks made of? I can't figure out how you get that pitted finish.
