Bison Mask

35 reviews


Whether you are joining a restless rutting herd or going for a wallowing wander alone, you’ll be a high plains drifter in your Bison Mask. Add faux fur or your grandpa’s old shaggy brown pub rug to the Mask for an authentic rugged realness. Just make sure that whatever you use for this Full Mask is significantly muddy or dusty.

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.

  • The Bison is one of nature’s most effective battering rams.Though seemingly peaceful and content to wallow in shallow depressions on the landscape, contemplating the higher concepts of being, the Bison is known to take off in a heated lumbering gallop at random, launching locomotive -like toward anything brazen enough to disturb private time.

  • 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.

    Really impressive mask, technically a bit tricky

    There isn't a Wintercroft mask I don't love. Be aware however that this one has some tricky connections (high tension until the glue dries)- beginners beware!

    Amazing even as a Minotaur

    We used this as a Minotaur mask, turned out to be wonderful. Maybe too many pieces, building it required more time.

    The Bison mask was one of the best wearing masks, but a bit of a pain to construct near the horns. I did 2 different builds, one with 1 layer of cardstock only and another with 2 layers of cardstock hot glued together. The 2 play was crucial for stability, which is normally what I find fault in my other Masks. I used elasticized fabric straps attached withhot glue instead of the flimsy template they recommend. It's the best wearing one by far, but you will spend another %30-40 of your build time just on reinforcing the material. Wintercroft delivers as usual.

    Bison Mask

    The mask was made by my boyfriend and so I can’t give detailed comments. I know he was frustrated with the project at certain points along the way. But I don’t think it had to do with the pattern. It was more of a materials problem. He tried using a glue stick but it didn’t dry super fast so clothes pins worked to hold some tabs in place while the glue dried. He used a hot glue gun for some of the tabs but that was tricky because as you position the pieces, you’re in danger of burning your fingers on hot glue. Gold spray paint really looked terrific, catching the light on all the facets - he got a lot of compliments on what a cool mask it was.

    Thèse are gréât. They take

    Thèse are gréât. They take a lot of making and much much paper but are very clever and look great.
