Jen close up by Moondupion Jen close up by Moondupion
close up of Jen, looking back on the costumes I could have done a lot more to cover the arms and legs but I'm still pretty happy with the results.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-04
Jen close up by ~Moondupion The suggester writes: As much as it may seem to be a small sculpture, this deviation is actually a costume intended for use a part of a stage production. ( Suggested by ariko-yamato and Featured by maytel )

The 1987 Jim Henson film on which the stage production is based may have caused me psychological damage, so much so that I dare not mention it by name. What's weird is that I used to enjoy it when I was about three or four. Should I seek therapy? Other than that, this is a beautiful piece.

I was just going through the Daily Deviations and i came across this.... Speechless, its just asthonishing!
Would i be able to ask, would i be able to possibly get something like this but of a fox? :D I'm primairly asking for pricing right now since it's obvious such amazing work wouldn't be free :P

I am considering taking the odd commission but at the moment a mask will cost at around 300.

Thank you! :D

It's made from casting a clay sculpt and furring the base. The ears are made up of thick leather which you just wet in hot water and bend into place. The eyes are just the top part of some drinks bottles I found with black buckram behind them and the nose is milliput that I just painted :P

That's a headmask? When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a really good photoshop! That level of realism is awesome!

I have thought about taking commissions though my concern is how much to charge and shipping price though I'll work something out. I don't mind sharing how I do these masks or any of my other costumes though they will be very long, maybe I'll make some when I have time to :3

The costume was made for my final year in college where I chose the project "The Dark Crystal" but I had to redesign all of the characters and this is how Jen turned out since I decided to make them all different types of animals :3

Cool. I've never actually seen "The Dark Crystal" before, so I ended up looking for pictures of this person. She looked pretty mouse-like before you redesigned her :) Good choice of animal there :D

It's a really good film, loved it quite a bit when I was younger. If you like fantasy or Jim Henson I recommend it :3
