How to make a Borderlands paper craft mask

Borderlands fan botman, has shared patterns for an excellent paper craft project he just finished on Gearbox Software’s official gaming form. You’ll probably recognize the iconic mask as the same one worn by the character featured in the game’s cover art.

Check out botman’s post for more details about his project, tips on when you should opt for more ‘gentle’ folds, and a link to the printable pattern so you can make your own. You’ll also find some handy suggestions on the gear you should use to make a proper psycho bandit Halloween costume with the mask. Note that you’ll need a copy of PePaKuRo Viewer in order to open and print botman’s pattern. Fortunately, it’s free and you can find it here.
