While FNAF stuff is showing up more and more in Halloween stores, but you won’t find any for Sister Location (or FNAF World/ The Silver Eyes). If you’re looking for a newer character, then you’re going to have to DIY*. Today we’re going to look at how you can make a Circus Baby mask of your own with some basic supplies.
Step One: Gather your supplies
The supply list for this one is very simple. All that you need is:
- One white mask (full face). I got mine at Hobby Lobby, but I’ve gotten them in the past from all of the major craft stores, and around the Halloween season even in Wal-Mart.
- One pack of Sharpie markers, or if you already have them at home, then make sure you have: Black, orange, red and purple (not light purple)
- A pencil
Step Two: Pencil out the vertical main line
Baby’s mask is split down the middle, so you will need a vertical line that bisects the face of the mask.
Step Three: Pencil out the rest of the lines
Baby has some distinct lines on her face, for the opening segments, most notably by the cheeks and eyes. Drawing these in with a pencil allows you the chance to do them as many times as you need in order to get them right, and make sure that they have symmetry, as they do need to be even on both sides of the face.
Step Four: Ink in the lines
Once you have your lines the way you want them, go ahead and ink over them so that you have clearly defined lines. Be careful here, as you’ll really only get one shot at this step.
Step Five: Fill in black spaces
Baby has black spaces near, but not on, the lines of her face. Using “u” shapes to make these spaces, connect and shade in these areas. Also, fill in the black area around the eyes you will need to add depth.
Step Six: Fill in the red sections
Baby’s mouth and nose have red areas that need to be filled in. Just one word of advice. If your pencil lines are thick here, then you will want to lighten them up with an eraser before you use the red sharpie. This prevents the heavy lines from bleeding through.
Step Seven: Fill in the purple sections
Baby has purple on the outside of her eyes, and for her eyebrows. Take a few moments to color in these sections. Be careful by the side of the eyes. You can always add more if you go thin, but correcting for too thick is much harder.
Step Eight: Color the orange hair
Finally, color in the hair at the top of the mask. Of course for a full cosplay you will also need a wig (or you could spray your hair with temporary spray if you have naturally light hair) for the signature pigtails, but this gives you the perfect bang line to begin from.
There you have it. Your baby mask.

*Yes, the scale is a little off, because Baby’s face is not human shaped. The art was scaled to the mask in order to make it wearable.
