Halloween 2016?
« on: October 09, 2016, 01:06:30 AM »
Finally decided to try to get a costume made again after a couple years off.... People at work keep asking what I'm doing again lol

So...... Costume is still a work in progress, will hold off on describing it for the moment, but i was excited about finally deciding to try some "real" makeup work  :lol:

Picked up a couple pallettes of mehron water activated paints to try out,
Pretty pleased with how this came out for my second attempt!

This was testing a few different things in one area, not the final plan, but there is a clue in the pic

And? Anyone else doing it up this year?

Last year I had some fun. All of that stuff is custom tailored. Including the leather. I can;t take too much credit though, the pretty lady behind me did most of the work.

Soooooo far behind schedule  :|
Just made a foam template and cut the first pieces of leather tonight.



 Need to stitch and mold this bottom half of the mask before i can figure out the top half and the 3 straps to go with it.  Then make 2 wrist straps and possibly 2 arm straps to connect some hosing to, and get it all dyed.....then paint an entire back mounted flame thrower tank and figure out the strapping for that,  all before i can get back to making latex burn prosthetics..... Where did this entire month go?!

That's gonna look cool.  I'm behind on most of my projects as well.

You could always go as a serial killer.  Wear normal clothes, they look just like everyone else.

Lol thank you Wednesday Adams, but i prefer creative and creepy over funny  :-P

Finished up the bottom half and attached to goggles last night (excuse the 3am hair lol) just need to work on the forehead piece tonight



Even without the top done, it stays in place quite comfortably

And the mask is complete  :laugh:




I think it looks pretty badass personally  :evil:
Finished it off with a coat of a neatsfoot/beeswax blend. Unfortunately it darkened it up quite a bit and lost the grain that was visible through the lighter black before, but i feel better about it being waterproof with the weather the way it's been lately

Flamethrower backpack tank is done, just need to add straps tomorrow
First time I've tried painting something like this, I'm pretty pleased with the results  :smitten:

Metal straps are galvanized steel after a vinegar bath
Pipes are pvc
Nozzles are nylon
Guage is a tire pressure, but fully repainted and "broken" to read as if there's pressure
"sloppy welds" were an experiment with hot glue




Sad to not see anyone else partaking in the fun this year  :|

I'm glad you got my Addam's family reference!  Awesome work man.  Post some full get-up pics when you can.

My buddy uses a similar mask when we play Payday2:

Lol of course i did man, it's a classic line  :-D

Yeah, lots of plague doctor stuff around lately. I've always been a big fan, but the classic 2 eyed design makes it hard on people with glasses. That was my original reason for building this over a pair of ski goggles, but in the end i love it for design, as well as functionality  :mrgreen:

Awesome.  If the apocalypse comes, you can run your own gang with that getup.
