In this project, we’re making a Face Mask inspired by Starro from The Suicide Squad.

This mask is flexible and features blue and purples to look like those creepy starfish face huggers.

The HalloWing is the perfect board for this type of project! 

It’s an easy way to get an animation eyeball with no coding skills required.


The mask is 3d printed in flexible filament so it can wrap around your face. 

It’s made from two separate pieces that are fastened together with machine screws. 

All you need for this project is the HalloWing, a small LiPoly battery and a convex lens.

The mask is 3D printed in Ninjaflex. This filament features a shore hardness of 85A and it’s both flexible and elastic.

The flap on the back allows access to the built-in power switch so it’s easy to turn on and off.



Easily power up Starro! The HalloWing includes a LiPoly battery port with built in recharging capability! 

Simply plug it via USB cable into a USB port to recharge the battery plugged into the JST port! While charging, the orange LED is lit. When the battery is fully charged and ready for use, the green LED turns on. Seriously, it could not get more easy!


Components are housed inside Starro's body.

The lens press-fits into the lid in the center of the body.

Build-in standoffs help to securely mount the HalloWing to the upper half of the body.

JST extension cable can safely route the battery to a pocket.
