Thermoformable Pig Mask

Design Concept & Execution

For my Mask Making class, I was asked to create a thermoformable mask inspired by one of the characters from the story of The Three Little Pigs. I chose the straw pig and went forth with the concept of creating a character that appeared naive but precious. Using VeraForm as my thermoformable, I pulled my base over a clay sculpt and draped pink fabric over it to give the character a cheery appearance. In order for the performer to see, I created alternative vision portals by using loosely woven burlap over the eyes. To complete the mask, I created a felt cap base and covered it with a head wrap to ensure the mask would stay securely on the performer's head.
