The Great Nasor - WIP

"My nose is Gargantuan! You little Pig-snout, you tiny Monkey-Nostrils, you virtually invisible Pekinese-Puss, don't you realize that a nose like mine is both scepter and orb, a monument to my superiority?"
- Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac, Act 1

I decided to try my hand at mask-making, so I sketched a quick concept and dubbed it "The Great Nasor". (Would "Professor Proboscis" be better? Cyrano de Boogerac?)
It may have been inspired by a cold-remedy commercial.

There were some pieces of p.m. shell left over from another project so I trimmed and taped them together for the mask shape. "Waste not, want not." A couple of p.m. balls were added for the shape of the nose.

Filled out the shape of the nose with paper, added lips and the filtrum (the indentation in the upper lip).
That's a fine "Roman nose" you have there - it's roamin' all over your face!

It's a nose, dammit!

Next step: cut out nostrils, which will serve as eye-holes for the mask wearer. The Great Nasor has no need for eyes!

He's looking much better now; more nose-like and with paperclay lips and a chin.
More updates to come.
