Grab your hat and fetch your camera

So I was really bored the other day and needed a project. I’ve been COMPLETELY obsessed with creaturexlll's Teen Wolf fanart, shown here http://creaturexlll.tumblr.com/post/28623464326/my-own-private-sort-of-stiles ((This artist is AMAZING and everyone should go follow. SO MUCH TALENT!)) It’s amazing and I love it and when I have money, I’m going to ask if I can buy a print of it because it NEEDS to be on my wall!

But until then, you know what? I’m a crafty photographer. So I’m just going to recreate the picture.

Step one, make the mask! It’s a hockey mask base that I bought a few years ago around Halloween. It’s built up with paper, tape, card board, and pom poms. Since it can’t go in the oven, I used an air dry paperclay to build the mask. It’s painted with acrylics and eyeshadow, and spray varnished. The studs are sofa upholstry tacks, and the leather was taken from a jacket my mom got me at a yard sale for a buck.

Inside joke? the buckles to hold the straps around the head are taken off a knock off coach bag. So they both have the word COACH carved into them. I contemplated filling them in, but it made me chuckle too much, so I left it. =)

Downsides : It doesn’t hug the face the way creaturexlll's does, which is really a pitty, but I didn't quite know how to make that happen. and because it is paperclay on thin plastic, if you try to tighten the mask and MAKE it hug the face, it will crack the clay. But so long as you're willing to over look that, it's pretty epic!

The back is a hot mess. I’m gonna have to paint that or possibly cover it in a thin layer of the leather.

These were all taken on my phone. I’m not going to post better pictures of it until I actual recreate the photo. I have everything, including a model, except the red hoodie. I need to pick up a cheap one somewhere.
