This dragon skull is an original design of mine, a flat-backed piece that would make a great decorative embellishment on a costume, prop weapon, shield, armor, or whatever else you want to attach it to. While it’s made as a flat, decorative piece, there’s still a lot of depth and detail to it.
The sculpture is about 6.5″ long, 4.5″ wide, and 1″ deep (including the small facial horns on the snout and forehead).
This realistic skull is cast in solid white resin and comes unpainted, allowing you to choose how you want to finish it.
All of my resin props start out as a sculpture I created in oil-based clay. I make a mold of the original using silicone rubber, and then cast it in impact-resistant resin. While I don't recommend treating it roughly, this stuff is very tough!
This blank prop comes just as you see it in the photos - a raw, blank piece cast in white resin, with the flashing from the mold removed and the edges sanded smooth. This is a do-it-yourself piece, meaning it's up to you to finish, paint, and assemble it however you'd like. I'm also available to answer questions, so please don't hesitate to send me a message.
Blank Mask/Prop FAQ
Do your mask and prop blanks come with instructions? What kinds of paints/glues work best with them?
I send a guide along with each purchase with tips on how to paint your mask or prop, what kinds of glues to use, and more. The two general guides can be viewed below, but some masks kits also have a more specific guide of their own.
I'm sorry, but my schedule doesn't allow time for me to take commissions or custom projects, including custom paint jobs. I am happy to take suggestions, but I cannot guarantee what you're looking for is something I will end up making.
I recommend checking out the Cosplay Commissions group on Facebook - You can request quotes on costume pieces you're looking to have made, and it's a very active group. It's a closed group, but if you hit the Join button one of the admins will let you in.
Will you attach a strap to a mask blank for me?
It's best to paint your mask prior to attaching the strap, so I don't offer them with the straps already installed. The strap just gets in the way during the painting process, especially priming.
Can you make lower jaws for your skull masks?
Masks with attached lower jaws or moving jaws must be made to accommodate them from the start, such as my lizardman masks. My skull masks and other half-face masks are meant to be worn as masquerade-style masks and are not set up for having a moving or attached lower jaw.
Can I attach horns (or other items) to my skin with spirit gum?
My cast resin horns, fangs, and other such items are meant as embellishments for props or masks, and weren't made with the intention to be attached directly to skin as a prosthetic. It may be possible to apply some of the lighter pieces to the skin with spirit gum, but I have not tried this and can't guarantee the results.
Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.
Many of my pieces - mask blanks, horns, props, and other items - are made-to-order. When I receive an order for a made-to-order item, it goes in a queue to be cast, cleaned, and shipped in the order I received it.
Made-to-order items in the shop generally have a turnaround time of 14 business days (2 weeks). Some more complicated pieces, like the lizardman mask kits, have a turnaround time of 21 business days (3 weeks).
An expedited processing upgrade is an additional fee added to all eligible made-to-order items in your shopping cart. When I receive an order with expedited processing, I complete that order outside of my normal working hours so as to send it out sooner than normal.
How do I request expedited processing?
Add the item or items you want to your Shopping Cart. If the order is eligible for expedited processing, you will see an Add Expedited Processing checkbox along with the price and processing time.
Please note that if I am already working on an expedited order for other customer, the option may not be available. The nature of expedited orders means that I can only realistically handle a small number at a time. Please check back the next business day.
How long does an expedited order take?
Most expedited ship within 5 business days (business days being every day except Sundays and USPS postal holidays), but some more complicated items take longer. You can see the processing time for your specific order next to the Add Expedited Processing checkbox in the Shopping Cart.
When you click Add Expedited Processing, your order total will be updated and the processing time will display the date by which your order will ship.
Please note - Adding expedited processing decreases the processing time, not the shipping time! Once shipped, USPS shipping times apply. USPS First Class may take up to 10 days, USPS Priority typically arrives in 1-3 days. DUE TO CUSTOMS PROCESSING, INTERNATIONAL ORDERS MAY TAKE UP TO 8 WEEKS REGARDLESS OF SHIPPING TYPE.
