I am thinking of using this to raise the height of the head. Laughing

You want to look like Snooki from Jersey Shore? Razz




I don't really get that look, for women.

Thanks. If it doesn't work it won't damage the mask at all.

It's funny, but I will probably work. I used some spare foam I had lying around and glued it underneath the hair for my mask.

Ok. Need some suggestions.

I thinned the hair more.

I added some foam to the head to raise up the head some.

What else do you all see that might need to be done?

I was thinking of thinning the mustache some more. What do you think?

First off, that is looking amazing! I'm awed by what you have done with this.

Trimming, I kinda agree that a bit could come off the mustache. And maybe in the back a tiny bit too. Maybe.

Definitely trim the moustache, the hairs only need to be about an inch or two long!!

Great job so far though!

OK..... I took the bump out of the top of the head. Thinned the hair some more. Shortened the moustache.

What else do you guys see that I should work on? Please don't think you will hurt my feelings. I need constructive ideas so I can make this the best that I can. Thanks

You’re going to need chin definition. I would suggest bobby pins and hair spray. Right now.... you have no chin. Hairpins in general can improve facial definition... IMO.

Zax. It puts me right at 8' when I have the costume on. It looks taller when it is on the PVC manniquin.
