Hawkgirl Costume by CraftyWingy Hawkgirl Costume by CraftyWingy
The helmet, wings, and mace for the Hawkgirl costume. I -will- be redoing the helmet eventually. I also need a darker pair of tights.

The helmet is foam, the wings are cardboard with the lower two layers being foam (so I can still sit down), and the mace is a combination of various things, including the bottom end of a paint bottle and a mini soccer ball.

The style is mostly Justice League Animated, though I took some liberties with the helmet and added some of the traits from other versions (a more prominent 'beak' for example).

Edit: Version 2 of the helmet is here: craftywingy.deviantart.com/art…
If I re-do the wings, I would do them in EVA foam next time. They would be lighter and would take damage better (I tried wearing these in the NYC Halloween parade, and the pushing and shoving was a really big problem.)

Amazing job! Mask looks rather Wolverine-ish, but that's not a bad thing. :D

Beautiful! Can you share how you made the mask?

I used one of those basic cheap black masks you can get at craft stores, measured my head and created a framework that would fit properly with strips of plastic, and attached it to the mask. Then I found something round to put it on, trimmed the eyes and nose out, and built on top of it.
The nose and 'side wings' were built and then placed onto the mask. There are wires in the side wings, and the nose is cardboard with an open back and bottom.
It was mostly trial and error, to get the shape right. I usually cut paper and lay it on the form before I cut the foam, so I know it will work out, but the back still gave me trouble.
