More costume "progress"

I started trying to figure out the pattern for the new Mayuri cowl today. I remember how I WAS going to make it last year, and I probably should have just gone with that, but I had to make it a lot more complicated for some reason.

I have it all put together now, but none of the edges are hemmed. I also need to cut eyeholes and the mouth hole. Then, I have to figure out how I'm going to do the pattern on the front. I was thinking just more black craft foam, but I've considered going with liquid latex as well. I only have flesh and orange colored latex, but I could easily paint it black over the top. I'm jsut not sure what will end up being better. I need to take some spandex scraps and experiment with some latex. I know what it's supposed to do in theory, but I've never done it. Plus, since it's spandex, I don't know if I'll need to be wearing it while I paint the designs on. It will make it more difficult, to be sure. The foam wig head is smaller than my head, and I don't know if I want to try to do a duct tape dummy of my head. I mean.. for small facial details, the size difference will really matter D:
