Im goin to kick off this one with a pic



Im the one in the middle as Hisagi from Bleach. It still needs tweaking like binding my chest and posing properly (along toning up the arms >.<) but I was v proud of my weapon as it was the first time I had ago at props. It was so cool to have people stop and look in approval just with the words "Nice one!". I even had a fan girl, which made my day lol.

I might put a tutorial on here for people to reference. Yoshi has quite a big head so it shouldn't be too bad.
If I were making a Yoshi mask I'd go for a small ( headsized) beachball. Mache that. Then get two smaller balls/balloons/tinfoil rolls for his cheeks and another large ball, but smaller than the head, for his muzzle. Then two more balls or egg shapes for his eyes. Sight would be interesting; I'd either dimple the nose on either side and situate the eyes lower to see out of or make it out of mouth, with some red gauze.

If your eye sight is effected or you costume empeds you ( walking, manuvability) get a spotter/watcher to walk with you. They can tell you of upcoming hazards, if anyones about etc.

That's almost exactly what I did anyway but with polystyrine balls and foam and stuffing because I wanted it to have more of a soft toy feel. Appreciate the tips but since I've almost done it I probs won't be making it again lol.
Visibility wise I basically have the eyes where the eyes are lol, works out pretty well
