Wolverine Mask Pattern Help
Post By level10. 02/03/10, 09:32 am

Doing Wolverine (Astonishing/Sniktbub & the X-Bubs
costume) for Chchgeddon, as some of you know, but having trouble with the mask, more specifically with
bunches and folds on the A & B seams in the pattern here. Pattern
contains central piece which goes from bottom of nose over the head to
the bottom of the neck, side pieces attach to that, L shaped neck pieces
attach to them and chin strap attaches to both. Line at back of central
piece is for a zip. Any ideas on how to stop the bunches/folds on those
seams, or how to improve in this pattern?

Note: obviously not to
scale.

Also
please note that I haven't been using fabric with any stretch, hence
the zip in the back.

Have you clipped/notched the seams? That should help with any excess fabric bunching up along those lines :) If it still bunches though, I wouldn't have a clue...GOOD LUCK.

Thanks for the hint. I forgot to mention that the other problem I'm having is how to shape the middle piece so that there isn't any empty space along seams A & B, and the mask actually sits snug to my head, rather than looking like some retarded paper bag

Hrmm..you may have to put in some darts to fill up the empty space, something like this (pardon the blantant thievery of your image Razz):

I'd recommend doing that on your head/wig head though to make sure you get the darts right! They may have to curve slightly, but you'll have to play with it a bit. :)

Would they be visible along the seam?

Yep, they'd be visible along the outside as any other dart. Have you made a mockup yet, or just working on paper? Once you have a mockup, it'l be easier to see how it works in 3D - if it's on the bias, you'll have a tiny bit of stretch, so the darts may not be necessary anyway.
