We got this question on our profile page and I wanted to share it with our Members to see if they might be able to help."Hi all, I'm making some animal masks for a musical - they want to wear them normally as well as sliding them up onto their forehead for when on all fours. Was just wondering if ppl had ideas for the best ways to have them tie to the head - I'm thinking two elastic straps maybe. Any help much appreciated, thanks!"
Personally, I like the idea of elastic since it's flexible and easy to position. I wonder if a mechanism not unlike a helmet might be used too? I imagine this might be something like a plain headband to which the mask attaches via rivets which are *just* loose enough to allow the leather to be moved up and down. The problem with this is I imagine the more you move the leather up and down, the more it might loosen up and not stand up by itself. I'm sure those of you experienced with more complex masks might have better suggestions, so fire away, guys!
