Picture of Death Eater From Harry Potter

The target was to construct a halloween costume inspired by Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter books, dressed up as a Death Eater (follower of bad guy Voldermort). Here's an action shot of me in the full costume,

Step 1: Making a Mould

  • Alginate - I used dental alginate
  • Plaster bandages
  • Plaster of Paris
  • 2 plastic container
  • water
  • dummy head or take life cast- would do one research on this

Start with a dummy head

Mix up the Alginate

Stir alginate with water in a 1-to-1 ratio,

Make sure you use cold water as this dries insanely quick when you use warm/hot water.

Place on dummy head remember to do this really quickly as it sets really quickly

Layer several layers of plaster bandages over it before removing to provide support as the alginate is pretty delicate.

Should remove fairly easily with use of any Vaseline

Mix plaster of Paris according to package directions, and pour into mold to fill. Let set for several hours to dry

Remove from mould

We Used sandpaper and Dremel to clean mould up
