1st Step: Buy a cheap Halloween mask for about $10 from Walmart, Target, K-Mart ect...
2nd Step: Buy some Sticky back Velcro for about $2-5. You can get it from Home Depot, or at Walmart in the sowing section.

3rd Step: Cut the Halloween mask to fit the bottom of the goggles.
Posted Image
4th Step: Cut square pieces off from the Velcro.
Posted Image
5th Step: put the Velcro on both the Halloween mask and paintball mask

Posted Image
6th Step: Then stick Velcro together, and your done.

Well I gotta say...it looks VERY cool and I'm sure it will work great for very short games...but in any games of any length, you're going to have some serious fogging issues. The latex of the mask is going to hold in all the moist air from your breath.

you might want to invest in a fan, or cut some holes in the latex

i played with it in a woodsball game last weekend and didnt have problem with fogging but if i does i will probably mask some under the bottom set of teeth.

Looks very cool, but as MOATI pointed out, you should look at ventilation... I'm sure you could put a decent amount of small holes and/or cuts in the masks and still have it look good, and a fan may not be a bad addition as well. You could just zip-tie the wig to the sides/edges, or clip it to your hair. Well done.

I second what Moati said, but on the lighter side if you get hit in the mask at least you don't have to task PB fill ;) .

Well, I meant zip-ties, those little plastic thingies you use to tie cords together and such. But, hot-gluing a zipper would work too; hot glue to the mask and sew the other half into the wig base. Keep us posted on how it turns out and pics are a must.

I did something similar with my JT Flex7 and a Guy Fawkes mask.

Cut off a little below the eyes, add velcro, and Voila!
Add appropriate hat and wig as needed.
It doesn't fog because A: It's a Flex and B: there is a mouth and nose holes.
