    I know nothing about making masks but the figure in that link I'm sure you can find it cheaper. It comes with a mask although I think it MIGHT be too big.

    This e-bay seller used to offer a 1/6th black latex batman begins armor kit with removable cowl. You might be able to contact him and get one.

    You could try wrapping the head in aluminum foil and building up layers of black RTV rubber (available in tubes at auto parts and home improvement stores). The foil will prevent it from sticking to the headsculpt as you make it, you can then trim it to final shape after it dries.

    I think I would go with this choice...and then to finish it off, buy the sprayable rubber that you coat tool handles (like pliers) with. The spray comes in black and you can get it at Home Depot.

    well you could make a copy of the head sculpt, and then use apoxie sculpt or something like to make the mask. Then make a copy of that and cast it in the rubber.
