The flames roar from the clearing, reaching for the stars as lightning claws from the sky. Herakon watches from the carrion strewn trees as pandemonium ensues below. Bones rattle to the rhythms of Kapros as the Pyre Master pounds on skins of mortals stretched over logs. Varanus entrances the gathering through the eyeless pits of his swaying skull, while Gowlock howls the hymns of the hollow into the night. We listen with our body, mind and spirit as our mortal shells blister and sluff off to the ground, stamped into the earth by the dance of the dead.

Of all the skull masks I've made, this was the fastest. It was really comfortable to wear, although I ended up adding a black strip at the back that hugged round the back of my skull. This made it more stable for the dance number we performed. A caution: don't get too carried away adding feathers at the back as 11 feathers throws the weight right off 7 worked really well for me. As with my other recent masks, I traced round the pattern pieces rather than gluing them to the card. It was no slower than gluing, and removed the risk of delaminating (earlier ones I've made have had this issue). I used white 300 GSM card which was easy to work with yet strong enough for purpose. PVA was perfect for the final assembly as it gripped quickly while still allowing for some adjustments, it's strong & permanent (unlike Aussie glue sticks), and doesn't smell weird when wearing the mask.
