Here we go again! I've decided to make individual listings on Kickstarter for the Majora masks, that way people can back the mask they want and we have a much smaller goal! Please be sure to share so we can make this happen!

Ashley Montgomery
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I am a aspiring concept artist and illustrator for film and video games. I studied at the Otis College of Art and Design where I doubled majored in Digital Media and Fine Arts. After collage I started my own company with my friend, Tearatone, called "The Props Shop," where we work to bring the imagined to life. We work from video games, tv shows, anime, films, etc and are inspired to create the amazing pieces from them using the most durable and lightweight materials possible. I am a professional prop maker and avid cosplayer. I love going to cons, showing off my hard work and getting my pictures taken. Hanging out with friends, strange conversations, it's great. I really enjoy making my props, every project is a unique puzzle for me to figure out, trying to turn fantasy into reality. I always say that props help keep me sane, because in all my daily repetition, they are something that is different, something that gets finished and stays done. So, should you ever have that hard to approach prop you're trying to make, I'm happy to advise or take on commissions!

Hello. I've been sending you multiple messages regarding a prop commission for an upcoming convention. As it stands the con is next week and I still don't know how much of it you've completed. You mentioned being at a convention Memorial Day weekend and told me you would send progress photos when you got home. I have yet to receive any such photo a week after the fact, nor have I received any correspondence since that last message. I am hoping that you will see this comment since the prop still has to be completed and shipped to the other side of the country before the 11th as that is the first day of the convention. Please respond.

Sorry about that, I lost my aircard and live in the country, so I've been offline for the last week. I've gone ahead and loaded progress photos of your staff on my gallery, and I'm going to focus on your prop so I can have it finished and ready to go by the end of the week.

Thank you very much, I was getting concerned about the progress and not hearing back. Thank you for responding, and thank you in advance for focussing on this prop! Out of curiosity, would there be a better mode of communication for you? If not then that's fine. Thank you again!

how MUCH DO YOU CHARGE TO CREATE A MASK?

meanlilkitty Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015  Professional General Artist
Well, it really depends on the mask itself, if you want a cast of one I've already made, or if you need a custom piece done, the difficulty and details on it, and the materials we go with. So what mask did you have in mind?

i want a mask from the manga akumetsu now its a guy on this site who created it but now is inactive i cant find him i search the entire online world still cant find him so he left the greatest blue print from scratch from the mold to the paint job but i just need you to be honest that you can take on such a task and make the mask basically identical to it i need it for a music video so it has to be on point.  Now you can google Akumetsu to know more about the manga and mask but below is the mask and you can say the best Example for it

I'm not sure I currently know how to make a mold that will handle those horns. What I use typically would tear with horns like that. I suppose I could ether make it out of worbla if you'd like, or if you'd like to pay for the mold, I can either look into a different molding material that's tougher, or do a one-time mold that I'll cut apart to get the mask cast out of. Let me know what you think

Everything arrived safely! I'm terrified I might accidentally break the ankle cuffs, but I'm still super happy with how everything turned out. Thank you again so much!
