Blar, I feel like emotional yuck…
A customer’s piece was damaged in the dry-mounting process for their framing order…

I warned them there was the potential for damage in that process
Their piece already had damage when they brought it in
We opted for the D/M process anyway
The damage caused was relatively minor

I still feel like blech. Ugh.

What did you make that Dark Sun Gwynodlin mask out of, and how? It looks fantastic so far!

Aaaaah, thank you so much, anon! ;u; (And you recognized it oh man yay, I was worried about it!)

The top pink layer is insulation foam from Home Depot that I traced a paper template onto and then cut/sanded to shape; I did something similar to a paper snowflake when making the template, to make sure it would come out even on all sides. I created 1/4 of the entire shape and traced it around four times to keep everything the same, then cut the pattern out with a dremel (sp?) and sanded it smooth. 

The yellow layer is craft foam, which is a lot thinner and softer and flimsier; that was traced using a similar template method and just cut with scissors and hot-glued in place.

Now to add the pointy bits and make the helmet piece and sand everything again and cover it with sealer and paint it and GASP I STILL HAVE TO MAKE THE ROBES OH HELL I’M SCREWED

Thank you again, Anon! :) I’m gonna post more images when I get more done. Eventually. Hopefully soon.
