Your Cart is Empty

September 02, 2016

There have been a number of enquiries about fitting the strap on the half masks without poking holes in the mask itself, so I thought it might be helpful to detail this alternate strap fitting process in five easy steps. All you'll need is some excess card from your build, scissors, a ruler, a skewer (or a sharp pencil will do) and a length of elastic long enough to fit your head.

1) Cut two small squares (approximately 35mm each) of card


2) Poke two small holes in the cards with a pencil or skewer

3) Thread elastic string through the first hole from the front of the card, then feed the elastic through the second hole from the back to the front and secure the loose end to the rest of the elastic by gluing, stitching or tying as shown



4) Make sure you have the right length of elastic to provide a snug fit before tying off the second end

5) Glue the card pieces to the inside of the mask

Halloween is one of our favourite times of the year, but there are some things that need to change. 15,000 metric tons of costumes are likely to be thrown away this year in the USA alone. Cheap Halloween costumes are made of 90% plastic, so when you start doing the sums it becomes frightening very quickly. Check out our creature feature on how to reduce Halloween waste this year.
