My first attempt at a Luchador mask
So, my fella has become involved in a retro wrestling league called Victory Commonwealth Wrestling, and he asked me if I would parlay my love of textiles, costumes, and general gaudiness into helping out with some of the costumes for the wrestlers. I was all "did somebody say RETRO?"
We had a basic luchador mask for copying:
And then we basically went crazy making them. They are made almost entirely of recycled clothing from Value Village. There was a little bit of trial and error getting the pattern and templates right, but I am pretty pleased with what we ended up with.
The embellishment possibilities are endless.
I am so pleased to add these masks to my repertoire!
