LED Paper Mache Anglerfish Mask for Halloween! Step by step below.

Finished result first



Started with a 16-in balloon and sketched a plan
8 layers of paper mache, alternating heavy kraft paper with newsprint, took about a week to make sure it was all dry.
Made teeth by wrapping florists wire with masking tape and paper mache
Tail structure: cardboard and fin bones (made same way as the teeth)
Attached fins and cut gills
used paper mache clay to build up details. Ping pong ball eyes

cutting holes for LEDs along spine. I used a string of 30 battery operated LEDs
attached LED string and separate battery pack for the light in the angler
For the angler i used a single LED and attatched longer wire so it would fit in the piece of rubber tubing used for the angler
