How to Make a Wrestling Mask


Aside from learning the moves, being in great shape and actually getting a contract, your character is one of the most important things in the WWE. Characters like Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin are all remembered for their creative storylines and costumes. Another way to help convey character is through a mask. Wrestlers like Kane, Rey Mysterio and Mankind have all donned a mask in the WWE, and that mask became part of who they were in the ring. Creating your own wrestling mask should be a creative and innovative process that will become a trademark product associated with your wrestler.

Things You'll Need

  • Leather (various colors)
  • Sewing kit
  • Tape measure
  • Velcro
  • Shoelace
  • Measure the circumference of your head. This is important because you will want the mask as tight as possible so that it does not get in the way while you are competing in the ring.

  • Decide the main colors that you would like the mask to be. You can create a design with multiple colors, but try to keep the mask symmetrical in the design.

  • Cut a piece of leather to the circumference of your head. Place that piece over you face to create spots for your eyes, nose, and mouth. If you have long hair, you will also want to keep openings for that as well.

  • Use small pieces of leather to add designs to the mask, such as shapes over the eyes and mouth.

  • Sew the pieces on using a sewing kit with a string and needle. Weave this tightly so your mask does not come apart in the middle of a match.

Finishing Touches

  • Add a Velcro chin strap to add extra protection. The mask is also used to hide your identity, so keeping it on for that sake is important as well.

  • Keep the back together with woven shoelaces. This will allow you to make the mask tighter as well as to prevent leather stretching when you are trying to pull it off.

  • Try the mask on and make sure that everything fits snugly. Make adjustments as needed.

  • Remember to keep the idea original so that you will stand out in a wrestling match.
