Bob Kane and Bill Finger created the Batman comic series. Batman is the superhero persona of Bruce Wayne, a man who saw his parents murdered before his very eyes when he was a child. Since then, Bruce Wayne has vowed to abolish crime in his town of Gotham, doing so as the caped crusader, Batman. Batman is a popular choice when it comes to Halloween or costume parties. However, you need not spend a lot of money on a costume. At the very least, you can make the mask yourself.

If you don't have the artistic skills to draw a mask yourself, find a template to follow (see Resources). Print out the pattern on a piece of card stock.
Cut the mask out from the card stock with a pair of scissors. Cut out the eye holes. Using an X-acto knife, carefully score the dotted lines. This means only cut the dotted lines where the actual dashes are. Leave the blank spaces between dashes uncut.
Shape the mask with your hand. Squeeze either side of the nose together to get it to stick out. Push in the area underneath the eyebrows. Push the area above the forehead down and slightly back.
Squeeze each side of the triangles that make up the ears together slightly so that they have dimension. Cut a small piece of tape and tape the back of each ear so that they keep that formation.
Pierce either side of the mask by the eyes, 1/4 inch away from the edge. Cut two pieces of black string at least 10 inches long and thread it through the holes, knotting it in place. Colour in the blue pieces of the mask black with a black magic marker.
