How to Make a Cyberman Mask


Cybermen, a series of "Dr. Who" villains, originated from the planet Mondas. Their evolution began when the Mondasians replaced body parts to extend their lives. The replacement of the heart rendered the Cybermen emotionless. Cybermen vary in appearance depending on the "Dr. Who" episode. Through the "Dr. Who" series, all Cybermen have circular eyes, a non-moving mouth and pipes from the ears to the top of the head.

Things You'll Need

  • Balloon
  • Cardboard
  • Glue
  • Measuring tape (optional)
  • Paper mache supplies
  • Utility knife
  • Aluminum foil
  • Silver spray paint
  • Earmuffs
  • Silver duct tape
  • Translucent, black fabric
  • Blow up a balloon larger than your head. Cybermen are 7-foot giants, so the added height helps the overall look of your costume.

  • Cut out a piece of cardboard so it looks like a round, squashed "Y" and glue it to the balloon at eye level. Make sure the top section extends around both your eyes and the tail reaches below your mouth. You may want to measure the distance on your face and transfer the measurement to the cardboard.

  • Paper mache the balloon and the cardboard. As you layer the paper mache, make sure that you keep the eye and mouth area higher than the rest of the mask. Allow the mask to dry and harden.

  • Pop the balloon and remove it from the shell of the mask. With a utility knife, cut out two circular holes for the eyes and a thin slit for the mouth. Place your cuts in the raised "y" section you created.

  • Cover the mask in aluminum foil. Keep the glue to the edges to get a smooth look. Locate the eye and mouth holes and cut them out.

  • Spray paint a pair of earmuffs metallic silver. After the paint dries, secure the earmuffs to the mask with silver duct tape. At the center of the band that connects the earmuffs, place a piece of duct tape to connect the earmuffs to the center of the top of the mask.

  • Place translucent pieces of black fabric under the eye holes and the mask. The fabric should be on the inside of the mask, which hides the rough edges of the fabric.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add small holes at the nose area to help you breathe while you wear the mask.
