When the kids start fighting crime at age 6, they definitely need to hide their true identity. It’s pretty much a requirement for any superhero. Everything becomes official in a costume and it might even enhance the superhero powers! Well maybe not that last part. But it’s fun to imagine the life of the PJ Masks could be real. Just a bracelet, some jammies, and an awesome mask complete the look. When the sun goes down, Colin, Amaya and Greg are transformed into their super selves. Catboy, Owlette and Gekko show kids how to fight for good and vanquish evil, despite only having a kindergarten education.

If you have a little crime-fighter in the house, you might want to give this tutorial a try. We’re going to show you how to make your very own Catboy, Owlette or Gekko mask. Just download the template and follow along. We promise to keep the secret of who is behind that mask to ourselves.

Catboy Materials

Catboy Supplies

  • White Plastic ½ face mask
  • Fishnet Stockings
  • Blue Foam Sheet (9” x 12”)
  • Dark Blue Foam Sheet (9” x 12”)
  • Light Blue (preferably glittery) foam sheet (9” x 12”)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Masking Tape
  • Scissors
  • Craft Knife
  • Foam paint brush and paper plate
  • Dark Blue acrylic paint
  • Spray adhesive (3M super 77 is super sticky and will hold well)
  • Black Marker
  • Catboy Template

Catboy Step 01

Step 1. Cut a piece of the fishnet stockings, that when stretched, is large enough to cover your blue foam sheet. Tape the edges with masking tape.

Step 2. Use the foam brush to apply dark blue paint to the green foam sheet. Use a dabbing motion to apply the paint, so that the paint only gets into the openings of the fishnet. Let the paint dry.

Step 3. When the paint is dry, gently remove the fishnets to reveal a diamond pattern on the foam. Trace the template for the Catboy mask on to the foam and cut out.

Step 4. Remove any elastic from the mask, saving it for later. Spray the front of the mask with the spray adhesive. When spraying, be sure to put newspaper or scrap paper under the mask to contain any over spray. The adhesive can be very sticky

Catboy Step 02

Step 5. Carefully position the white mask against the blue foam, centering it left to right, and an inch from the bottom as shown. As long as you don’t apply too much pressure, you should be able to re-position the foam, until you get the correct placement. When ready, press the foam so that it contours to the mask. The spray adhesive should hold the foam tightly in place.

Step 6. Use the craft knife to cut out the eye holes.

Step 7. Trace the ear template on the dark blue foam. Cut out and hot glue the ears to the mask.

Step 8.  Trace the eyebrows, and lightning bolts on the the light blue foam. Cut out and hot glue to the mask.

Step 9. Use the craft knife to poke holes in the mask to reapply the elastic band. The mask is ready to wear.
