Hey, congrats on the Flash Fire contest!But yeah, I think probably what I'll do is make a new one and hopefully it'll be better than my current one, then I can repaint my current one. Hopefully I use the paint job to cover over or distract from those lines.

I've been wondering: how do you attach the sides of the kakama to the main piece, and how does the thing at the top of the main piece work? thats been confusing me for days now.

Almost used my Hau for a rather unique purpose today-So we have a hot tub but some of the side panels are loose and a bunch of wasps made nests under them- we got Raid and it was my job to dress in heavy clothing and go out in the 90-degree heat to spray the nests. At first I used a swim mask and tightened my sweatshirt hood way up, but I couldn't breathe and the goggles fogged up. i was trying to figure out what to use when it hit me: I ran to my room and tried my mask on. It fit snugly enough against my hood to not let wasps in and the mesh allowed me to breathe while keeping the wasps out. In short, it was perfect.But, sadness of sadness, I had no good way of keeping it on my head yet- still no strap. :(So instead I opted for a Creeper head that I made for Halloween last year and that used the same mesh for the face. It seemed fitting enough for destroying their painstakingly made homes.

As you can see by my avatar, I'm almost finished with a pakari. And maybe you should consider making a rahkshi head and/or tohunga feet models.Right now, I'm almost done cutting my hau, but I'm having a sort of mental block. your later works seem more streamlined, but I can barely understand the hau and the cutting is confusing on it, So I'll be postponing my hau creation for a bit.and also, why does this kakama have more detail than the one in the file? I was disappointed by the lack of detail in the version I'm working on.

Well as you can tell in the preview pictures on the first post, this one has no details (I actually got it from the game :3) so I had to make my own details from scratch with foam sheets/cardboard, and I'm sorry to hear about the Hau, I'll try to rectify that.EDIT: Actually Maphrox sent me a bunch of mask files quite a while ago, the Ruru's one of them.http://www.majhost.com/gallery/sik1276/CBart/Pepakura/maphroxpack.pngSome are just retopology of ones I did do already like the Hau, this Hau here fixes the mouth problem, I believe. Others are more high-detail parts like the Kakama and the Akaku. However, I'm really busy with other stuff so it'll be unlikely that I'll be able to whip all of these out. So if there's one that you really want, please say so and I'll try to do that first.

I'd really like you to do the Kakama first. It's been one of my favorite masks for years, along with the kualsi. But there isn't much of a rush since I'm going to start on 3 more masks soon.

I agree: there isn't much of a hurry. I've finished my low-quality kakama, and am almost done with my pakari, so I printed the noble huna, the mask of light I don't want to embarrass myself by spelling it incorrectly, and the kualsi. I've already finished cutting the huna and probably will cut the kualsi out overnight :happydance:

It depends on what mask, how much time you have, and what schedule you are building on. Some masks I can cut all in one night (Even though I stay up until 1am :P ), and others take longer. It also depends on when you glue. When I glue, I wait 40 mins for it to dry, then I glue again, and so on. I suggest doing some of the newer masks, as they are less complex in general. The pakari is a good choice. Also, when I glue I use six clamp thingies that aren't directly clothespins, but don't stick to the paper easily. You can still try to use clothespins though.

It also depends on how far you're taking the construction of the mask. Cutting+glueing will take several hours. Coating it with podge before painting, a while longer depending on how many coats. Adding resin, though, will be by far the biggest time-consumer, though I couldn't put a figure on it. A long time. If you just want to cut, glue, podge, and paint a mask, you could probably do it in a dedicated weekend. Casting would add probably a day though.I'm basing that estimate off the Medium-difficulty Hau. An easy mask may take less time, and a Hard will definitely take more. It's a fun experience though, and your friend will certainly enjoy it!Alright, I've dug out an old pair of ski goggles and taken them apart- I'll try to cut the orange plastic into lenses, I may or may not be able to make the amount of plastic fit the eyeholes on my Hau.But the main point is, I've now got the strap with almost half the frame on each end. My thought is to hot-glue them into the broad, flat part of the inside, near the back edge. It wouldn't be the most elegant-looking, but it would hold the mask on and offer some degree of padding and adjustability. Anyone have any better ideas? I'm sure there's a better way to do it but I'm having difficulty coming up with anything feasible.

Alright, thanks! I'll do that tonight or tomorrow and let you know how it goes!*Edit*Yeah. So. Hot glue: not enough of a bond on mask or goggles to be long-term. Strap: too long.So my mechanism wouldn't stay on my mask and my mask wouldn't stay on my head. Back to the drawing board...

yeah, I was worried that might happen. If you are not too against hurting your baby, I would suggest drilling a couple of holes on the side of the mask then using nuts/bolts/whatever they're called and stab them through your straps to affix them to the mask. Then paint the outside screws to hide them or cover them with the resin, paper clay, whatever and sand and paint again :P

I do have a Kraahkan model but the model isn't really suitable for paper, someone will have to fix it or model a new one :/

If someone made this possible, I would totally make it. And even try to make it go both ways like the real mask.edit: I have Pep. If you sent me the file, would I be able to open it up in Pepakura designer myself? Just to look at it?

I do agree that a Kraahkan would be pretty awesome if insanely hard.I'd already thought about drilling, but the resin is too thing on one side- it didn't pour quite evenly. Even with thick resin I'd still be hesitant. I'm pretty against hurting my baby. I'll figure something out, even if I just have to duct tape it to my head for Halloween.

Then instead of Hotglue, use Gorilla glue/superglue :DHmm, unfortunately I must have lost the Kraahkan, I will need to contact my friend to see if he still has it.

I can try to whip it out by this weekend.And sorry guys for, if you hadn't noticed, taking down the download links, but there's some things that are going on and I'm just taking precautions.

Congratulations :)I don't have a model of the Noble Mahiki [I don't know how to model....yet] and I don't know if anyone has ever modeled one. I would like to note that I did not model any of these masks that you see, I recieved these from other modelers and am only the unfolder that makes them possible to be made from paper.The software's name is Pepakura Designer/Viewer by Tamasoft, Inc. and sorry, I'm not providing any downloads of any masks out right now.

Well, I'm fairly glad I saved all the patterns to my computer a while ago. I do think you should leave it up for a while.Anyway, used my mask tonight. Couldn't wear it to school and didn't go trick-or-treating (never too old but had other plans) but I took it to a party. People thought it was pretty cool, especially those who knew what it was. Still haven't got a good way to keep it on though...
