I'm kinda new to prop making, but I want to make Reaper's mask from Overwatch (and the guns if possible.) Is there any suggestions for cheap material/tutorials/things I'll need? This is only the mask and maybe the guns, not the whole outfit.

I've heard of people using paper mache for masks and stuff and figure it'd be at least relatively easy to access, would that be a good possibility for making these? Or would I need to get EVA foam or worbla or something?

For the mask I'd recommend going to a craft store and buying a stiff mask as a base then use either thin craft foam or thin cardboard to add onto the mask and get the details you want. As for the gun use EVA foam, there are plenty of tutorials on how to make similar guns (Destiny guns come to mind).

That is actually a very challenging mask to do as a 'first try'. The bigger your smooth areas are the more work it is to achieve them.
Also, depending on your bone structure, the nose area may be uncomfortable. It only allows for a cure button nose, if you fall into the 'shnozz' category it will be uncomfortable to wear and might even make breathing difficult.

I find weapons a great place to start because there isn't any 'does this fit?' conundrum.

I'm DYING to know all the categories that fall in between "button" and shnozz"

HAHA! Thanks for the laugh Penlowe.

Those guns are a PITA as well because they are MASSIVE. The Hellfire shotguns measure out at around 18-20" long. I duno what your budget is or if you really want to make these yourself but there are several people who have modeled these and 3D printed them. You can find them unpainted on Etsy very reasonable. There is one example.

Now these will need a lot of prep. Plan on spending a few hours sanding them and then however long you feel you need in paint. $35 for BOTH is a damn good deal, almost to the point where I may buy two, trick them out and sell them back on Etsy. :)

Thanks everyone, I'll probably have to get someone to help me with the mask but I'm really glad you found those guns on etsy, will make my life a lot easier lmao
