The Minotaur Mask

I completed a mask this weekend based on the Greek myth of the Minotaur in the labyrinth. Spring boarding off the vertical shape of the previous masks, I wanted to make a more horizontal structure - so something with big horns was the answer. This one came together rather quickly in structure (first step pictured below) and once the details such as the scratches on the horns worked their way out it was time to hang him on the wall.

This is a fantastic mask! I'm doing a Minotaur costume for Halloween this year, and I was wondering if you could offer any tips on constructing a mask like this. This is the best example I've been able to find on line.
