The Making of Jareth's Mask p1 by Katyok The Making of Jareth's Mask p1 by Katyok
This is my take on the mask the Goblin King sported in the Ballroom Scene in Jim Henson's Labyrinth. I tried to stay as authentic as possible. Since I will wear this mask at NYC Comicon as a part of my puppeteer costume (yeah, and the puppet is His Majesty himself!), I will require both hands to carry the doll, therefore instead of a skeletal handle I opted for a neoprene band.

The mask is made out of PaperClay, and painted with acrylics. The span of the horns is about 50 cm (20 inches).

Many thanks to the most talented Marie Messina for her advice on the mask construction.
