The Nel mask was created for client as a cosplay mask for Comicon. This mask is worn on top of the head and was designed to be as close to the qualities of the anime design as possible. Accuracy is very important in the world of Cosplay and it is the mission of the mask maker Jonathan Becker to provide as clear a replica as possible.
Nel Tu has a very child like appearance but her vocabulary and level of intelligence and perspective contradict her appearance. She is more sophisticated and logical than her child like for suggests.
The custom mask making process for this mask involved the client providing images of the mask asked for. Jonathan then sculpted the mask in clay. Images of the sculpture were emailed to the client and once the form was what the client desired the mask was cast and created.
