Craft: Flimsy Mask
Planning on going to BlizzCon but lack the skills or the free time to make an epic costume? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Follow the simple steps below to make your very own Flimsy Worgen or Goblin masks.
Supplies: White Cardstock, Color Printer, Acrylic Sealer, Xacto Knife, Scissors, Elastic Cord, Stapler and Electrical Tape
To start, I wanted to make sure the masks looked as good as possible, so I cleaned up the original image.

Print out your mask on cardstock. You can choose from the following:
Spray your print out with a sealer. Cons can be rough and you don’t want your mask falling apart on you. Give it some time to dry before the next step.
Using an Xacto Knife, cut along the white dotted lines around the eyes.
Cut out the rest of the mask with scissors.
Mark two dots on the back for your elastic string. Hold the mask up to your face to determine the best location and size of the string.
Staple the elastic string to the mask. Make sure you’ve given yourself enough string to tie a knot so it stays secure, then use electrical tape to help keep it in place and prevent it from scratching your face.
Editor’s Note: Not attending BlizzCon? Feel free to use your Flimsy Worgen mask to spice up the bedroom.
