Balaclava/ski-mask and disguise masks for the Spy costume (part of the ongoing Team Fortress 2 project).
These are for ~MaEmon-knows
Balaclava is made out of Lycra, basically I just pinned it to MaEmon's head and we hoped for the best (and she hoped I didn't get a pin in her face). Once we had the basic shape sorted the final adjustments were made on the mannequin head.
It was sewn with a mock-safety-stitch (4-thread overlock).
Prior to the eye and mouth holes being cut it was really terrifying. Like some kind of partial morphsuit/zentai zombie.
The binding around the eye and mouth holes was hand sewn.
The fabric is so stretchy it just pulls right on over her head, no need for any fastenings.
The masks were printed on A4 card at 300dpi, then cut to shape, then laminated.
There are holes punched in each of the side corners (2 on each side) and each of these holes has been finished with a white eyelet. Lengths of overlocked scrap Lycra are used to strap it to your head.
The masks are:
