Skullkid Cosplay 4 by Kraaku Skullkid Cosplay 4 by Kraaku
I used about three weeks making this entire cosplay (!) I would have used alot more time, but NOPE. 
I started making it in the beginning of March 2014 and basically needed it to be finished for the Kitacon Invasion (28-30th of March) 

Everything is made entirely by me, from head to toes. 
The mask is made of paper mache and airdrying clay, sanded smooth, painted with acrylics and sprayed with a clear vanish.
Alll the clothes (including the shoes) are based of viking-methods, since that is the basic clothing-construction I am most familiar with. 

I have chosen to base my cosplay out of the actuall GAME rather than use all the fanart created as reference.
Therefore my hat, gloves and tunic might differ from other existing cosplays of Skullkid. 

In the future I might consider making an actual skullkid-head to wear behind the mask,  craft some sort of barkskin to wear underneath it all,
and craft a plushie-moon (or purse!!) I can carry around at future cons!

Edit2015: Seems I have to redo this entire cosplay, after a try-on I found myself drowning in fabric:
Downsides of weightloss...

You can start planning and preparing what you'll wear for the next one. Any ideas?

I've been thinking about cosplaying the Happy mask-salesman, or deku-link :) If not, something Zelda-related atleast

Well, if you can pull off a creepy smile and do a charlie day-like sudden scream, then the Mask Salesman should be a nice fit. Either that, or the classic selection of characters to cosplay. Such as Link, Zelda, the new addition to the list Tetra, or even Shiek.
