Blaze wanted to enter, so as soon as we got home from baseball this morning, we started working. I already had a pattern for a Lone Ranger style mask, so we used that and some scrap leather for the base.
The little studs that he glued around the edge of the mask, used to be on a shirt that I had. When I realized the shirt was too worn out, I tore the studs off, knowing they were be useful again.
The camera lens has been floating around the apartment for about a year. We found it in the "free box" in our apartment complex laundry room, but hadn't found the right project for it, until now. Blaze asked for me to paint "cross hairs" on the lens.
