Today we look at an amazingly well crafted Skull Kid costume made by PhasersonFun. This exceedingly talented fan has recreated the magic of Majora’s Mask through cosplay of our favorite little imp turned villain of Termina. Such an incredible level of detail is placed into all parts of the costume including things such as real tree bark skin and plush foam hat.  No small aspect of the character was overlooked in the design to make it as accurate as possible.

Here is what she had to say on her decision to create the costume.

I remember way back when I first go my hands on a copy of Majoras Mask. Everything was just amazing about that game: the uses of the masks, a three day timespan, the many characters each filled with their own backstory, and of course, the skull kid. He was just so out there. So odd. I also found his story to be sad. He felt betrayed and forgotten by his friends as they left to fulfill their duties to protect the town. Thats what drew me in to cosplay as him.

The costume itself took months to create using a mixture of various materials from clay and felt to wire and paper mache. The Majora’s Mask was removable showing the real skull kid’s face underneath. And while the complete mask did hinder vision to the point that she required guidance to move through conventions, it does not fail to visually capture the look of the skull kid perfectly. Even the handmade clothing was weathered to look more worn and old considering the skull kid lives in the wilderness. The overall costume required a blend of skills including sewing, sculpting, and painting to get that near perfect level of accuracy.

I especially love how she decided to have the skull kid’s face underneath the mask instead of simply cutting corners by having only Majora’s Mask on. She definitely took her time with this one and it shows. A level of effort placed into something such as this displays a large amount of skill and love for the series, and I think the pictures taken in the woods perfectly captures the mysterious and mischievous look of the Skull Kid. The bark skin blends in very well with the surroundings in the woods in which a few of the pictures were taken.
