Pop Quiz: Halloween Masks

With Halloween in the U.S. fast approaching, I wanted to share this awesome article from Lifehacker about making your own custom vacuum molded masks. It sounds like so much fun! But since I can’t code that into HeroMachine, instead I’ll challenge you to create your own Halloween mask in the program. To be clear, I just want the mask, nothing else — no bodies or backgrounds, no elaborate full costume. All I want is an image of a mask you might find in a store that someone would wear to a Halloween party.

You only get one entry — that’s right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular challenge, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce my favorites some time tomorrow. Here’s how to make an entry:

I’ll pick one entry as my personal favorite, which will get to be featured in the side bar to the right for ultimate glory! As a bonus you’re allowed to say you won the Internet for a few days.

Good luck!

  1. Seeing that most Halloween parties has at least one Batman and or alot of kids dress up as batman I figured Batman (or as close as I could get to him on here) is the one I’d make lol

  2. First off, I recognize that this will automatically disqualify me from the contest, but I figured it was as good a time as any to do it. I present Majora’s Mask!!

  3. Complete with polyester hair tufts, moleskin pads for the comfort of the nose, bendy rubber base and soft latex teeth. Barbario–would you have anything like this in Lucy In Disguise? Even theater costume shops in our area make a lot of money on Halloween.

  7. Scatman: That is just the Shi7!!

    Thanks Scatman, I liked yours as well.

  8. This does not compare with half the images here, but I thought it was a novel concept anyway! Attempt at a Tiki mask… I wish I had Harlequin’s or Scatman’s knowledge of shading.
