The White Rabbit


This is not the white rabbit from the Alice in Wonderland. It´s my white rabbit.

Never before I had so much trial and error designing a mask. It might have had taken longer than I originally expected but never this long. Not even when I was designing and making the stencil for the stripes of the zebra and tiger masks.

Once I made the rabbit mask, it looked OK but as soon as it was put on, the ears flopped. Well, floppy eared  bunnies are cute in real life but I am not sure about it when it comes to masks.

I discarded the idea of using thin wire or a cocktail sticks to support the ears because I did not think it was safe. I also didn’t like the idea having shorter ears.

Eventually, putting extra padding in the ears in a way that the padding comes down to the forehead, did the trick.
