Back in February this year Pixel-Dan was set a challenge to show up at the San Diego Comic Con, dressed as his favourite Masters of the Universe character, Mosquitor. The Challenge really captured my imagination. I immediately knew how I would make the eyes, (if I were in Dan's shoes), but Mosquitors head is a really awkward shape to try and replicate. This problem had been buzzing about my head for a few months and simply wouldn't go away. In order for me to get some piece of mind I just had to start plotting the head out in SketchUp. Before I knew it, everything started to come together so I took the project a step further by making a card prototype. About half way through the build I started to think, "what on earth am I going to do with this once it's finished"?
On a whim, I decided to send Dan a quick message to find out how he was getting on with his costume. As it turned out he was still stumped, so I offered him my prototype to wear. After returning from the con Dan was keen to interview me about this project because a lot people were asking him how it was made. To find out more, head on over to Dan's website to read the interview. Lots of extra pictures to see there plus my video showing the masks construction. He has even agreed to host the nets and assembly instruction for me. So, if you would like to make a Mosquitor mask for yourself, simply download the files from there and give it a go. It would be great to see how you got on this this project.
