Brave, independent and adventurous, the mighty Bear is one of nature’s most admirable creatures. Meander through forests and urban landscapes alike, eating tasty bits and tourists to your heart’s and stomach’s content. This is a Full Mask for a fearless forager.
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.
If you would like to improve yourself by following in the bear-foot-steps of this beautiful beast, the best way forward is to construct our Low Poly Bear Mask and wear a literally fitting tribute to this majestic furry creature.
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 bear is arguably the largest animal in America, and this is the largest mask I’ve ever built, and the smallest. Since I have a large head, I scaled up to 104% when I printed. For my kid I did 80%. Plenty of room for adjustment with the headband instructions. Love this mask, Wintercroft!
Hi Marlon, Thank you for building our masks and sharing your experience. Awesome bear build! Let us know if we can help anytime and have fun on future masks. - Fletch
Very nice design, interesting to build yet no material needed, the perfect confinement DIY project
This mask was great fun to build. The Wintercroft masks are a delightful distraction from the Covid19 lockdown. The bear :bear: mask was my second make - the first a gorilla :gorilla: - in the space of a fortnight! I had originally bought the gorilla template about a year ago but hadn’t made the time to start it. I am yet to decorate the masks but have subsequently bought the fox :fox_face: mask template (with wall mount) and made that too. The Fox mask review to follow soon. My makes aren’t perfectly done, I have large fingers plus I think my card is a little too thick so keeping the joins together whilst the glue (glue stick) adhered was tricky. Some of the joins show little gaps but they will be covered up when I decorate. My next purchase will be some half masks that I will practise methods of decoration prior to decorating the full masks.
Hi Ian, Fletch from Wintercroft here. Thank you for building our masks and for the detailed feedback. We're excited for you to create more and let your imagination go wild decorating. Let us know if we can help anytime and have fun staying healthy, safe and creative. - Fletch
