Perhaps the ultimate symbol of purity and grace, the Unicorn’s mythical image traverses many different cultures, times and texts. Our version is all 21st century take on the legendary creature.
Our Full Masks completely encase one human head and can be custom-fitted with the internal headband included in the template. Full Masks vary in build time and complexity, scroll down for further details. You will be amazed by the experience of watching your Mask come together as each component is joined. We hope you enjoy the build as much as the finished Mask.
We propel this lovely legacy into the future with our Low Poly Unicorn Mask, which you can also turn into a Horse by simply removing the horn and covering the hole with a square of card. But, why would you want to do that?
Simply print the templates on paper, stick them to card, cut them out, match the numbers and join the tabs together. The Mask is scaled to fit an adult but you can make children's masks by scaling down the templates when you print - check our FAQ page for details. The templates come with instructions for an internal head band that can be adjusted by moving the fixing points to get a snug fit. Some templates are supplied with component colour guides to help you create identifiable markings unique to the Mask.
I love these masks, design and ease of build are fantastic. I have to confess to wandering from the basic cardboard aesthetic I’m afraid as our local village panto wanted two pantomime horses for the show this year. So I printed out the heads at A3 size to scale them up a bit. I then made them in the usual way (with Weetabix boxes), covered them in layers of brown paper, a layer of J cloths stuck with PVA then a layer of EVA foam floor mats (used the pattern blown up a little more to allow for the thickness of the foam). I could then carve the foam into the muzzle and chin shape and to create some cheeks. The final shape was then covered in fabric. I also braced the inside with some strip aluminium and a baking sheet (from Poundland!) riveted to the cardboard so I could run some pulleys and bike cables to operate the eyes and mouth. In the end it was a little heavy so I then had to make a harness out of some roof straps to take the weight onto the performer’s shoulders. The head was wing nut bolted to the harness - another reason to brace it internally with some metal strips and T plates. The show went well! Now it’s all over I think I’ll make the unicorn mask - just for me this time! Thanks guys - I think your products are amazing. I may go for the dragon next as I’m currently working on some digi-stilts and plan to make a full dragon costume!
Hi Pete, Fletch from Wintercroft here. Thank you for this amazing review and for sharing your master build! Incredible ingenuity. Let us know if we can help any time and have fun on future projects.
Patterns are really well thought out. Ended up printing on paper and spray gluing to 22 point cardstock. Cut with razor and scissors. Glued with glue stick and reinforced with packing tape. Used pen trick to pre-crease folds. Spray painted afterwards. If you're used to crafts you'll have no problem.
Prompt reply to my order. Great idea. Good results. Happy. Thankyou
I didn't do this one yet
Used this for Mardi Gras. It came out great! Left if white and just sprayed it with a pearl glitter for some hold. I only printed it out at 90% size and it was def the right move. It was still big, so if you have a small head like me, I'd go down a tiny bit. Used regular tape as a binder, the glue stick didn't work for me that well. I also left off the very back piece and just stapled an old elastic headband so it would stay on better and i could lift it up on top of my head. If I had more time, I probably could have fashioned a better headband but it worked fine. I couldn't really see anything out if it tho unless I turned my head to the side and then I could partially see out one of the eye holes. Might order another one to make just for fun!
Wow! What an awesome costume. Thank you for sharing the experience. If the masks are too large, you can always scale down in the printer settings before printout. Let us know if we can help anytime and have a blast on future mask builds. - Fletch
