Wrestlemania

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!
