Mod your Guy Fawkes mask

    So, I'm a purist and still wear a GF mask to anti-Scientology protests. Why? Because it's sexy and makes me feel powerful and women love it. No, wait, that's the suit. The mask? Because it's a brand identity and makes me feel powerful and I know it freaks out the cultists.

    Now, this isn't JUST for chanology, but anyone who wears the mask to any kind of protest. This particular modification is for dealing with that stupid crummy piece of foam at the top. It's crappy, doesn't hold up to sweat, and we'd all be happier without it.

    TA DA!!

    Okay, so as you can see I've used a basic kitchen sponge to replace the foam bit. Super glue affixes the sponges to the mask quite well and you just cut the sponge bits to fit your face for proper spacing.

    First, use a fresh sponge, obviously. It'll still be pliable when you take it out of the package and so easy to bend and measure and figure out how much you need to cut off for the forehead and nose piece. I'm sorry I don't have photos of the creation process, I didn't think to do that until after the fact.

    Give it test fittings before gluing, sponges are dirt cheap so if you need to cut a bigger piece you should have no problem coming up with material. Before a protest, give it a good rinse to remoisturize the sponges so they fit your face well (and also to keep you cool). They'll soak up sweat and help keep the mask in place a lot better. I wear sunglasses under mine and have NO problems or comfort issues.

    Hope this helps!

    I glued spongers in a mask and when it was brutally hot, the glue metled and got in my eyes
    Don't forget that some glue is toxic and you will be breathing it in
    Unless you like that sort of thing :cool:

    Minipads are much softer than sponges, they're easily replaceable if you sweat profusely, and more absorbent, too.

    Didn't some n00b use a tampon because they couldn't find a pad?
