First I want to appologize for not posting, I have moved to a different state, finally alomost settled in. I bought a skull mask. I cut slits at the top and glued, using a glue gun (very time consuming) 2 pieces of yellow photo plastic together, just the top. I colored the ends of the photo plastic orange with a orange sharpie. Then I sewed the photo paper, I made tabs, to the mask. Inserted very tiny lights with a small battery pack. Wish I could show an image. Hope this helps.

Awesome costume! Where did you purchase this photo plastic?

#11 comment by Denise Rodriguez September 29, 2017

Grafix Clear-Lay Assorted Colors they come in single sheets, but use this search.

Denise, you are saving my life right now. My four year old wants to be Ghost Rider this year.

#13 comment by Anna Garcia October 21, 2017

Is the paper just thick or do you do something to make it stand up ? And you just glues them all over top of skull and then just glued lights on it ?

#14 comment by shelana October 21, 2017

This is awesome. My 6yo asked to be ghost rider and I panicked!! Thanks for sharing!!!

#15 comment by Denise Rodriguez October 21, 2017

The paper is thick, and I sandwich 2 pieces together (hot glue) and just insert the lights in between. I made tabs at the bottom of the flames to attach to the skull.

#16 comment by Danielle October 28, 2017

How much of the photo plastic did you use?

#17 comment by Amanda Raisch September 22, 2019

#18 comment by DENISE RODRIGUEZ September 23, 2019

Amanda - Thank you but no, it still gets used and I have younger grandson who may use it. Sorry

#19 comment by Mike September 27, 2019

Denise - do you happen to have any pictures with the lights off? I'm trying to get a better idea of how many plastic pieces are used, and what they look like when the plastic is cut and put together.

Thanks for sharing! Mike
