I'm playing going to be playing Elementum, a LARP (or in french, Grandeur Nature) on the south bank of Montreal.
Their rulebooks account for Illithids (mind flayers), which seem to be really fun to play, but which no-one has done before. The main requirement is having a mask. I'm planning to run an illusionist Illithid who would spend most of his time disguised as various other people, so I wouldn't wear it very often (unless I fall unconscious, I think).
I can't really find it anywhere. How could I go about procuring this --either by making or buying it-- relatively quickly?
While a straight-up High Octane Nightmare Fuel kind of thing with horrifying attention to detail would be awesome, it would probably be too expensive and long to get. For the moment, I just need something that clearly says «Look! I'm a Mind Flayer! Nom nom nom!» without further ado.
