wintercroft to the rescue...

Consider today's post a Public Service Halloween broadcast.

If your family is anything like mine, there will come a point before Monday when someone has to go do something halloweeny and there is no costume. That's where the wonderful Wintercroft can come to the rescue.

U.K.-based designer Steve Wintercroft has designed a glorious collection of geometrical paper  that can be printed out and assembled by you at home. From only £4.50 his masks can save your halloween.

Wintercroft’s broad collection of skull and animal masks is good for Halloween, carnivals, or any other occasion that calls for masks. When you purchase a mask, you gain access to a pdf file download that will let your print out and make the mask yourself. All you will need is some spare cardboard and sharp scissors and you are ready to rock...

“A couple of years ago, I received an invite to a friend’s Halloween party but struggling for costume ideas and short of time, I raided the recycling bin and gathered together a pile of old cardboard, an hour or so later and after some trial and error I had made myself an animal mask”

He also does a wide range of animal and creature masks and his fox ones are super cute.

Needless to say when making one of these you will need some patience too, which may count me out.
