Your cosplay is lovely! You are really very talented and I can honestly say it was a big help as a reference for my own (first one ever!), as in what to get right. Seriously I'm having conniptions trying to get it as perfect as you. I do have one question though. How did you attach it to your face?

How did you sew in the magnets to wig?

I actually ended up not sewing in magnets at all. The eyes on the mask have lenses, so i used some intense glue to get those on and left on the ear pieces. Then i used a black headband, cut it straight and tied it to those to keep it tight.

Thank you very much for your kind comment :)
It's attaches with magnets that are glued into the top of the mask and they connect to 2 that are sewn into my wig.
It was my husbands idea and it works wonderfully! accept for that fact that when you're not wearing the mask, you have to hold it...still trying to figure out how to keep it on my head without having to wear it or hold it XD

Thanks for the tip! I tried magnets but the mask is top heavy. What I did was glue sunglasses to the mask to get the lens detail and then cut up and tied an elastic headband to the part that goes over your ears to pull it tight to keep the top from slipping down. It kinda crushes my nose, but hey it works. :)

Thank you! I actually bought the wig like that. I lucked out and found this fluffy-ish wig on ebay and did no styling whatsoever. I got really lucky. It was a bit pricey, but totally worth it!

In all honesty, I'm not familiar at all with this character (Looks like a Naruto character to me), but this cosplay looks aweseome, you've obviously given this quite a bit of thought and work and it definately shows.

What is the mask made of? I can't tell of it's plastic or plaster.

well thank you! she's actually a villain from the DC comic world but she is ninja-like so I see your reference to naruto XD

the mask is made of leather :)

Ah, ok, just looked her up, cool character.

And leather!? Really? Was it hard to work with?

MaskedMenoly Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013   Interface Designer
not as hard as you would imagine. Leather will shape to almost anything when it's wet, the hard part is making sure you hold the shape as it drys.
