- This is a digital pattern meant to aid you in creating a leather facehugger inspired mask as shown in the pictures.
- You need to Unzip the files after downloading them. This is because Etsy allows only 5 slots for files to be uploaded and more than that was needed.
- The pattern comes in 5 sizes and you need to measure your head circumference ( from your forehead to the back of your head ) when picking the right pattern. The head ball studs that are used on the small straps also provide some adjustment range so you should opt for the closest smaller size if your size fits between two of those provided ( ex: pick size S if you measure 570 mm ). The measurements are as follows:
- XS ~540 mm in head circumference
- S ~560 mm in head circumference
- M ~580 mm in head circumference
- L ~600 mm in head circumference
- XL ~620 mm in head circumference
- We used 6 oz ( 2 mm ) vegetable tanned leather scraps for this one but you may use whatever weight you prefer.
- To fasten the mask we used 5 screw-in head ball studs that provide a bit of adjustment and together with picking the right size you should get more than a snug fit for your creepy little friend.
- Some basic skills of working with vegetable tanned leather should be of help. The leather will need to be cased and modeled a bit in order to achieve a more realistic look. Please watch the video to get an idea.
- The project is put together mostly using cross stitching so make sure you can reproduce it before buying.
