These masks are made to resemble the in-game aliens from Mass Effect as closely as possible. The face is set a few inches in front of the wearer’s face, which better matches a turian’s profile. The wearer sees through several areas – the space around the eyes, through the nose and mouth, and through a few cutout sections in other parts of the mask.
Your eyes will not be visible, so false eyes of some kind are necessary. The mask comes with eyeplates and white plastic 12mm eye inserts, but you can also choose to replace the inserts with realistic glass eyes, make your own, or omit the eyeplates entirely and just paint eyes on mesh fabric (least realistic, but best vision).
These masks fit best on a small-to-average size face. The most important measurement is the lower jaw, which wraps under the wearer’s chin and around either side of their jaw. If your jaw/cheek area is wider than average, it may not fit you.
All of my resin mask kits start out as sculptures created in oil-based clay. I make a mold of the original pieces using silicone rubber, and then cast them in impact-resistant resin. While I don't recommend treating your mask roughly, this stuff is pretty tough!
The kits come just as you see them in the photos - a set of raw, blank pieces cast in white resin. Various cleanup options are available, but this is still a do-it-yourself kit, meaning any remaining assembly, painting, and finishing work is up to you. The included guide gives tips on assembly, painting, as well as how to make your mask wearable.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: While my masks are made from impact-resistant materials to keep them from breaking, they are NOT rated to protect the wearer during sports, motorcycle riding, or other dangerous activities. They will not take the place of an appropriate helmet. Stay safe out there!
