Picture of Borderlands 3 Psycho Mask - SKS Props

Hey everyone Steve here at SKS Props back again with another cosplay build! This time I am creating the Psycho mask from Borderlands 3 which isn't even out for 5 months! Those that know me know I absolutely love Borderlands and so it seemed only fitting that I tackle this mask ASAP!

Before we begin let me say some of the products that are use in prop building can be bad for you :(

So be safe!!! Always wear eye protection, wear gloves, and use a respirator when needed.

Lets get started!!!!

Step 1: Reference and Materials

Picture of Reference and Materials

As with all of my prop/costume builds reference pictures are key. When you start to think about making a prop or costume from a video game, movie, etc. always try and find as many reference images as you can. Since this game isn't out yet I had to base the build off of the BL3 cover and a few screen shots I found online.

This looks amazing. Are you going to add written steps to document the process for readers? :D

Unfortunately I lost almost all of my actual pics when my SD card failed in one camera but I was able to use all of the video from my other camera so this build is just video.

Suggestion: since you don't have the pics, you can make new ones from screenshots of your video and maybe using the transcript of your narration to write the formatted steps. With the steps and screenshots, you'll have a complete instructable. I've seen other instructables constructed that way, and they don't look bad IMO.
