Really liked the film by BeatDownBoogie. Which can be seen here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AHfj0uDrf0

Wanted to do a Shy Guy henchman as I really liked the asthetic and they're creepy at the same time! Big thanks to Alias for help with the mask!

Really enjoyed wearing this, even if I could barely see anything!

Really creepy, I like that it's still clearly recognisable as a Shy Guy.

Hoodie and Vest (Posted 4th March 2013)

After a couple of attempts with different brands found a suitable hoody, and Faramon helped locate a suitable vest.

Shy Guy Mask (Posted 23rd February 2013)

A pack of plain mask's were used as a base. One mask was used as a template, the pieces cut out, but as predicted using spray paint whilst layering the stencil mask on top of another didn't produce clean lines. So the design was hand painted on and sheer black fabric was fixed inside to cover the eyes.
