They can't all be winners and I'm not happy with how this one turned out. Oh well. It's big enough to fit on a person's face and has surprisingly good vision.

The vejigante is a carnival character from northern Porto Rico. I saw one of the masks while on vacation and fell in love. They're supposed to be made out of paper mache but I figured that a paper version was worth a shot.

Get the pattern and pdo file here - feel free to make your own! A million internet points if you actually wear one to carnival.

Amazing...thanks to your files, i started making my own papercrafts. I would love to see a "Diablico Sucio" mask from Panamà. 
I have a question: what do you use to glue your works? and what do you do to fold the pieces?
