I’d like to present to you a guide for making a Majora’s Mask Replica from the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask! From start to finish, this project took about three months to complete, but if I needed to do it over again it could probably be done in less than a month. Much of the time between steps was spent waiting for materials to arrive in the mail. Also, I spent lots of time thinking about the best way to complete each step in the process so that the final product would look as authentic as possible.
My inspiration for a Majora’s Mask replica came from a few sources, but the main thing that kept me going through the building process was looking at all of the attempts that people have made in the past to make an authentic Majora’s Mask. There were really only a few that I found that were decently authentic and none of those individuals were willing to sell a cast…sad face. I think that the Majora’s Mask is one of the most iconic symbols of evil and of the adventure that millions of gamers (including myself) took over a decade ago.
In order to create your own Majora’s Mask, you’re going to need a whole bunch of stuff!——
Smooth-On Rebound 25 Trial Kits (x2)
Smooth-On Rebound 40 Trial Kits (x1)
Smooth-On Smooth Cast 65D Resin (1 gallon)
2 Gallons of Plaster of Paris
A 4’x1’x1” piece of soft wood (I used pine)
Sculpey Terra Cotta (about 2 pounds)
Melamine (2” square should do)
3M Bondo Autobody filler
3M Glazing Putty
Several cans of the cheapest primer you can find (mine was $1.50/can at Walmart. You want it to come out thin and dry fast!)
Three feet of 1/4” Polyurethane tubing
Wooden dowels (3/8”)
Acrylic Lacquer (I used Dupli-color)
A 3” Clear Plastic Christmas Tree Ornament (Found mine at a Hobby Lobby)
Sandpaper, and lots of it—(40, 80, 100, 150, 180, 300 grit)
I tried to for each step list the tools that I used. Since this project took me a few months, I may have forgotten something, but I’m pretty sure it’s all there. Let me know if there’s any confusion.
