There are stories of a sanctuary amongst the trees. A forest for the skinless where flesh is unwelcome. On All Hallows Eve, the animals of the earth rise to dance, shaking the earth with pounding strides and howls from deep in the forest. Dancing around the Pyre of Luminescence, they bleach their bones of flesh-form restrictions in the moon-rays of immortality. In revelry they thrive at the spiritual oasis of the fire dance, free to be wild and protected from mortal interference forever.
Don the dead head of a beast and walk the hidden paths of the Fleshless Forest as you find your way to the great gathering of the animal undead. Leap, pounce, stomp and slink round the great fire dances, obscuring the lesser mortal within.
This set contains four animal skull Masks. These masks are also available individually here
As practice follows tradition, on the darkest night the bravest of mankind will disguise their form with paper masks to traverse the Fleshless Forest and join the carnival of the animal dead. Obscuring their humanity from the skeletal souls that prowl the darkness they will leap, stride, stalk and pounce to move as animal undetected. Take your place in the great dance but leave by dawn. Soft and pale, weak and frail exposed in first light you’ll be. Living intruders beware of the sharp bone and claw of those who wait to stretch skin over drum.
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.
The masks were fun easy to assemble and look fantastic! We used them for Halloween costumes and now they've become part of our decor. Thanks!
The skull masks are fun and relatively quick to make (i bought this set earlier today and already made two masks). The only thing i don't love is the fit of the cat mask - the skull's face is pretty far away from your own face, which throws the whole thing a bit off balance and has it sliding down quite a lot because all the weight is in the front. Also, since it's not super close to your face, the inside of the mask is constantly in my field of vision. I might try to make an adjusted fit that makes the lines 31-33 and their sort-of parallels as well as lines 46, 47, 55 and their parallels a bit shorter (to get the skull's face a little higher for better vision)
Hi Fynn, Fletch from Wintercroft here. Thank you for building our masks and sharing your experience. Sorry to hear about the Cat Skull sizing issue - it's a curious issue that we haven't heard of before. The solutions you detailed could certainly work. Another thing you could try is to scale down by 5% -10% or so and it should grip to the head as intended. Let us know if you ever need anything and we'll always be happy to help. All the best, Fletch
