Articulated Half Mask Project Completed

Here's the Fred and Ginger masks; painted, with moveable jaws. Elastic bands were attached to make them wearable. Polyurethane was painted on Ginger's lips for a glossy look.

The purpose was to make wearable masks for a ventriloquist act - these ought to do the trick! (The mechanism to make the mouths move is not yet in place.)
Fred and Ginger are essentially identical except for the paint jobs.

Half Mask Project cont.

Here are Fred and Ginger - complete but for straps for wearing them. After trying different ways to hinge the jaws I settled on the simple expedient of attaching them with cable ties. Next I'll have to post some action shots.
