Psycho Bandit Mask, Borderlands
This crazy-looking mask was my very first prop replica. The mask is worn by the Psycho Bandit character in the Borderlands video game series. Known for their off-color quotes and glowing eyes, the Psycho is a favorite among many Borderlands cosplayers.
The mask was sculpted over a Pepakura paper model base using a variety of materials, including Apoxie Sculpt, Worbla, and an actual PC fan. The finished mask shown here is made of Smooth-Cast 320 urethane resin, created from a mold of the original sculpt. The outlined features seen on the mask give the game its unique, hand-drawn look.
