Custom paper maché masks, sculptures, etc

Custom paper mache projects by Manning Krull

Interested in ordering a custom papier-mâché mask, sculpture, cosplay armor/accessories, or other stuff made by me? I’m now taking commissions! You can email me at for an estimate. Some things to keep in mind for commission orders:

  • Please tell me as much as you can about what you have in mind: What would you like? How big? When do you need it? Feel free to send me pictures for reference!
  • Most of my big paper maché commissions take one to two months to complete, so please plan accordingly. I can sometimes cut down the timeline, but a rush fee would apply.
  • Once we’ve worked out a price, I’ll ask for a 50% deposit (non-refundable), and the remaining 50% when the piece is completed. I’m happy to send you pics of my progress along the way.
  • Customer pays shipping, or you can pick up your piece if you’re near New York. (I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan.)
  • All sales are final and non-refundable.
  • Of course skulls and monsters are my specialty, but I’m happy to make other things as well; animals, objects, etc.

For reference, most of my masks, sculptures, cosplay props, Halloween decorations, etc take anywhere from 40 to 100 hours of work, depending on how complicated the design is. A big mask like my plain skull mask would start at around $900. A more complicated mask design like my violin skull mask or my cuckoo clock skull mask would start at around $1600 — they involve much more time and labor, and more costly materials.

Smaller pieces and less complicated pieces could certainly cost less.
