Garrus -cosplay head making- by Flytrap-Hell Garrus -cosplay head making- by Flytrap-Hell
My 11th "fursuit head" is a cosplay: Garrus Vakarian from the awsome game trilogy Mass Effect!

I don't know should I call this a fursuit head or not... since there's no fur at all! XD It's still constructed similar way.
Garrus is absolutely my favourite character from the series and I actually wanted to try out making a head without fur. I made a lot of mistakes and I cannot say that this would be the most comfortable thing to wear... But as I was wearing this in Tracon convention the last weekend, many, many people did recognise me! ^^D

The head is build on top of fabric hood with foam sheets. I painted the head with white glue, hot glue and finally used acrylics. The eyes are made of clear resin.
The visor has a led inside of it.

I will post some convention pictures too during this or next week! ^^D

It got a few cracks on the surface and the small parts of the mandibles almost got chipped off. Luckily I had superglue with me, but still the material choises weren't the best possible. I should have used a product called plasti dip OR latex to prevent the chipping.
Well, I'll be smarter the next time. =)

Wow this is amazing!!!! I was wanting to make a garrus mask for Halloween!!!! Is it okay if I ask what the blue stuff is? And did you use white glue to make a smooth surface when you painted it? Thanks! Hope to hear from you!

The blue stuff is simply just acrylic paint. I had pretty much of that so I decided to coat the head with a couple of extra layers before painting with the real colors. The white glue was there to smooth the surface indeed, in some layers I combined the white glue and blue paint.

Though! If I would make this again, I would after crafting the head coat it with Plasti Dip, to get a plastic-like surface before paiting. My mask got some cracks on it's surface because the paint and white glue made it stiff and the mandible tentacle-things on chin nearly snapped off when they hit something.

Good luck with your mask! =)

You think? ^^D Well I am glad to help another cosplayer! I didn't mention this on the artist comments, but the shoes are platforms (about 5cm). This didn't still help my height problem, since I'm only about 164cm tall... and turians are supposed to be really tall! =__=' Too bad I didn't remember to take more WIP photos.
