Silent Hill Bubblehead Nurse Mask Tutorial

Hi there! c:
I’ve been getting questions as to how I made the mask (but most of all how I could see from it lol), so I put together a brief little tutorial. 🙂

You will need…

1. Cling wrap
2. One inch tape
3. Glue
4. Skin-colored cap or skin pantyhose
5. Brown, beige, red, and black acrylic paint
5. Scissors
6. Coffee or black tea
7. Bandages
8. Hot glue
9. Resistance to fling things across the room in frustration
10. Someone to help you, or someone you can raeg at

1. Liquid latex

Okay, so first you’re going to take some salt and draw a pentagram on the floor. We will commence the chant to our dark lord Satan.
Oh wait, wrong tutorial…

First of all, you’re going to sit in front of the mirror with your hair net/cap on (if you brought a friend, have your friend sit in front of you) and begin to wrap your head in cling wrap. One or two layers will suffice. Remember to (obviously) cut eye, mouth, and nose holes during this process.

Okay, after wrapping your face in cling wrap, layer over that with tape. This shouldn’t take too long…


Aaaaand presto! c:
(Also, if you get bored during the process, draw on your newly acquired face.)

If it came out sort of “puffy” from certain angles, fix it by sticking the “puffiness” down, so the mask will adhere to your face shape better. I don’t know if you can tell, but the mask has a “lightbulb” shape. NO, MY HEAD IS NOT SHAPED THAT WAY. .-.

After you’re satisfied with your duct tape form, have a friend or (god forbid) do it yourself and cut a slit on the nape of your neck, and start extending the cut towards the top of your cranium.

Be veeeeeeery careful not to cut through the skin cap/skin/oh god anything that ISN’T tape and cling wrap.
I did this on my own, and well… I ended up cutting through the cap and got into some of my hair.

After cutting the slit,carefully remove the mask from your face. If it’s too tight, cut the slit bigger. Don’t worry, we’ll cover it up later.
You should feel like you are being born again after semi suffocating yourself doing this.
Oh, the beauty of cosplay!

YAY! We now have a (pretty) accurate mold of your face with DUCT TAPE!

Oh, and while you have that mask off, let’s move on to dying the bandages so that they’re ready for you to wear later on…
Take your black tea/coffee and dip it into a warm bowl. Dip your bandages in. Let them soak for ten minutes, and then hang them up somewhere so they can dry. These will be going around your head to cover the slit in the back. (Lol sorry, dying the bandages isn’t exactly rocket science, hence the reason I explained it so quickly.)


Put your mask on some soup cans/head form/the floor/whatever, and take your napkins and Mod Podge out. Time to pimp dis shit.

Soak the napkins in liquid latex/glue. Apply the napkins however, really. Try to fold them or crinkle them to get that gross look. After you’re done applying the bandages all around the mask (except on the slit), seal it with some glue.

Remember, dilute your glue with one part water, and one part glue! You should have a 50/50 disolution.


The pink stuff is liquid latex, by the way.
Keep layering on the napkins and sealing with glue…
Once the paper is dry, you may begin painting with your acrylics.



Remember to try it on during various stages.


*-*Don’t hate me cuz I’m beautiful*-*

Aaaaaaand after a while, you should have something that resembles this!
You may not be able to tell, but I cut holes near the nose, mouth, and left eye with my scissors.
Again, I made these obnoxiously small. Hence the reason why I was falling everywhere,


And we are done!
As for your now dried bandages, you can use them to wrap the back part of your head to hide the giant slit! :3
Have fun. ❤
