Snake Eyes is one of the characters from the G.I. Joe franchise, which includes comic books, video games and movies. A ninja whose face and body are entirely hidden, Snake Eyes always wears black clothing and a mask that features a visor covering the eyes. G.I. Joe fans can get into character on Halloween or for a costume party by making their own Snake Eyes mask.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Black ski mask with eye opening
- Black pantyhose
- Hot glue gun
- Transparent plastic cup
Cut a strip out of an old pair of black pantyhose. The strip should be big enough to cover the eye opening of the mask. The pantyhose will hide your eyes without blocking your vision.
Use a hot glue gun to dispense glue onto the piece of pantyhose, creating a border of glue around its edges. Place the pantyhose strip over the eye opening in the mask. Press down on its glue-covered edges to attach it to the mask.
Use scissors to cut a rectangular panel measuring approximately 4 inches wide out of the plastic cup. Be sure to use a tall cup if making an adult mask. Cut from the top edges of the cup all the way to the bottom. This panel will be used for the mask's visor.
Lay the mask down on a flat surface and put the plastic panel on top of it. Position the panel horizontally over the panty hose-covered eye opening. Use the glue gun to attach the panel to the mask. Dispense glue onto the right and left edges of the panel and press the plastic against the mask.
Leave the mask to dry for half an hour before putting it on.
