Cordyceps Fungus Progress by JWBeyond Cordyceps Fungus Progress by JWBeyond
The Last of Us.


The Make

Polycell Expanding Foam Polyfilla re-moulded. Without this process I couldn't have dreamed of doing this shoot.
Years ago while making my GOZU head I used this foam Polyfilla to fill and carve most of the head shape, while testing it I found that you can shape and mould the foam as its setting. It was perfect to make a Cordyceps Fungus mask for my Clicker costume. In total I used 3 cans of Foam Polyfilla at a cost of 21. Above are my tests and mid-paint mask sections. If you try this yourself please follow the guidelines on the can and use safety eye-wear/gloves at all times.

your mask is so awesome! i'm trying to do my own right now and i must say it's not going so well actually. you are saying, that you were able to mold and shape the foam as its setting so i'm wondering HOW you were able to do so :D did you use a knife or something? I'm in a hurry, because i need it till thursday. it would be so nice to hear from you :) (sorry if my english isn't the best :D)

Hello, Basically the foam gets tacky and mouldable as it dries but its a very small window you can do this. Keep testing the top layer until its dry enough to touch without it sticking to you. You can mould that top skin ;-)
Let me know how it goes :dance:

What did you do to the pieces that look hollowed out?

Good Question!
Basically I sprayed the foam straight onto tin-foil so I could have a clean mould as it wouldn't stick to the tin-foil. What I didn't know until I removed the dry foam is that when the foam began to dry it pulled away from the foil as it couldn't stick to it so it bonded to the outer crust that dried first making a hollow cocoon ;-)

After playing through the game, I've been inspired to attempt a Bloater cosplay. This cosplay proves that it's possible! And thank you for talking about the spray as well, I never would have guessed what that was.
