How To Make an MF DOOM Mask for Under $20
I went to the local Party City yesterday and came across a “Centurion Helmet” in one of the aisles. I looked at it and did a quick double take saying, “Whoa! That’s the MF DOOM mask!” Well, almost. It was made of rubber and a full helmet, not just the faceplate like DOOM wears. I purchased it for $15 and modified it to look just like MF DOOM’s mask. If you like it, here’s how to make your own!
You will need:
- A $15 centurion helmet
- Roll of Elastic
- Stapler (with staples inside)
Carefully cut the top and back parts of the helmet off, leaving only the front part of the rubber mask in tact. Look up some photos of MF DOOM on Google image search to know what parts to cut-off and what parts to leave alone.
Cut a piece of elastic that will fit snug to your head. Do not cut a piece that is too small or else the mask will fit too tight to your face. Staple each end of the elastic to opposite sides of the mask and you are done!
The mouth area of the mask covered too much of my top lip, so I cut off enough to match the actual mask that DOOM wears. If you’re an MF DOOM fan and not too worried about owning an actual metal replica, this cheap version looks very close to the actual thing and you can make it just in time for Halloween.
