I was quite bored one day, had lots of time, and decided to make myself a Pyramid Head plushie prototype from Silent Hill. He's kind of a hybrid between the movie and game versions...mostly the movie. Anyway, I bought some flesh tone and grey fabric scraps (including a little bit of white vinyl for the gloves), bought some batting, some grey felt, a bottle of tacky glue, acryllic paints, and fabric markers.
I made a basic humanoid body pattern, glued and stuffed it, sewed the vinyl scraps on the ends of the hands, tore up the bit I wound up using for the apron, and set to making the helmet...it was trial and error, but I finally got it down to 5 panels, seams glued on the inside somehow...I painted the helmet and apron with basic acryllics using chocolate, copper, and cranberry. I drew in the details on the helmet and body using a black fabric marker.
Then came the FUN part!! I mixed up some metallic red and black paint, with a teeny bit of brown and took a sponge brush to random places on the body to give it that cuddly blood splattered look! ^_^ For the great knife, I just cut out two basic knife-like shapes, glued them together, and gave it the sponge brush blood treatment!
I think next time I will actually take it to the machine and give him some proper seams! But, the tacky glue has been holding fast for the last 7 months or so! And I am going to devise a way to keep that point on the helmet straight. I didn't fluff the batting good enough, so it looks like he has a huge dent! But, I think I did pretty well considering I've never made a doll of any kind before!
