:target: The Project
My fiancé and I are working on the project of making a wolf fullsuit. It should be wearable for days, to go on a Live Action Role Play (LARP). But we want to do it with different Addons, like stilts and when its possible Anmiatronics inside.

This is an addition to the fifth step of a little photo-walkthrough making the mask for my manwolf.

:bulletblack: new mask
When there was the time to set in the eyes I realized that full bowls make the follow-me-effec to strong and you wouldn´t see so much. The older mask had other flaws too. The jaw sat a centimeter to low and a plate going over the head would be great for the jaw mechanism.
So I made a new one, but this time cast out of resin with glass fibre, like the jaws I made before.
The former mask is going to be a quad-suit-head now.

:bulletblack: eyes
The eyes are made of clear resin with a yellow LED inside. The eyelids are modeld with air-drying modelling-clay.

:bulletblack: joint
The joint is made out of a thin metal-string, you can see how the mechanism works in the pictures. It´s really hard to make it movable and good looking. I´m not really satisfied with the form. It´s to high and to broad, but it is the best I can do for now.
I´ll try to make it look good with changing other proportutions a bit with foam later.

:bulletblack: nose
The nose was modelled in Fimo and later cast in Latex. Maybe I gonna make a bigger one later.

Just sayin, you're only supposed to have enough vision to see basic things and get around :'D
So you should move the eyes down to where your eyes are (it looks like the muzzle is taking a large dip here) and put black wire mesh or black fabric you can see through so it looks more realistic. Hope this helps ouo

Ive been looking into LED eyes and was wondering how you did yours and if you could help me out with making mine.

:bulletwhite: I took a palette [link] as form. Be shure to have a good release Agent, otherwise you would ruin form and eyes, because you couln´t take them out of the form. Then you cast nearly hafl bowles with clear resin.

:bulletyellow: Put LED-lights, in the colour you want, in the forms, in the number of eyes you want to make. (Two Eyes, two half bowls with LEDs, two without.) Make shure the LED lies on the edge as possible but is all covered with resin, exept for the two metal pins, they have to look out.

:bulletblue: When your half bowles are dry and hard, which can take days, take half of them out of the form and glue one with an LED and one without together. You get a lense form. Be shure that there are no bubbles stuck in the middle.

:bulletorange: When they are dry and hard again take them out and clean them. Maybe with a cutter, maybe polishing.

:bulletblack: Then paint them. Paint them from the back and look throug the lense. Start with the pupil. I used cheep acrylic colours in two yellow tones, black, brown and gold. It needed a long time to paint the eyes, because I just painted with a lot of water layer above layer. Exept for the pupils. (You can do a bit of "erasing" by scraching of the colours) At the end I painted it all pastose black.

:bulletpurple: You can fix the colour with clear coat.

:bulletgreen: When they had wire and were fixed in the head I modeld the eyelids with airdrying clay and painted and fixed them like the eyes.

Does that help you?

it looks amazing!! This is very helpful! Are there any specific tips you can give me? I will be making a male anubis and female anubis costume for my man and I, I've never made a full furry costume, i won't be doing opening jaws for it but, as for the rest can you offer some advice? Also how do you make stilts?

Well, hard to find the right advice out of the thin air of nowhere. One advice I could offer is that you should design them a bit different, do make shure they look male and female. I tried to make the snout smaller and just a little chin to differ the head form for the female.
It didn´t work out so well as I wanted to, because of the mechanism, but there will be a next time. ;P

We already started to work on the stilts, but didn´t came up with something showable. But when we have anything, I´ll promise to post.

I love the moving jaw and it is the easiest of all the things this mask have. Without moving lips several people made something like that. Wearing a mask without moving jaw looks way more fake than one with a moving jaw.

That's something I worried about.. i'm going for the best depiction of realism and spook factor possible, any tips for the moving jaw? how do you get it to be pressur activated, i've seen ones where it moves when you speak
