1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Alien vs. Predator on: November 03, 2015 11:22:25 AM
I started with 2 lacrosse helmets, then used cardboard for the structure of both. The alien was then supported with a pool noodle. Both used spray foam to fill in the gaps and round out the shape. I used paper mch to cover the basic construction elements. The predator used spackle to cover the outer layer & I used bondo on the alien before spray painting.

Here are the original costume materials

I painted a black t shirt

Then cut leather strips from the coat and hot glued them in place.  I wrapped some leather around strips of rope to make the tube looking pieces in the front.

this is after we put the bald cap on and attached it with spirit gum.

here he is after a  few layers of liquid latex (we bought it from a halloween store, liquid latex brand, i believe)

starting to add makeup

This is where my progress pictures end.  It was getting close to trick-or-treating time and we had to finish!  I pretty much followed this tutorial exactly to finish the makeup & add the nails.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9kiv-7fpoQ

Thanks for all of the positive comments!

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Plague Doctor on: November 01, 2013 07:46:51 PM
I made my son Raiden's Plague Doctor costume this year.  The mask had a base of safety goggles, with a vinyl mask built on top of it that was fastened together with rivets and some sewing.  The eye holes were covered with black nylons and an old belt made up the mask straps.  The lantern was made from cardboard, with tracing paper window, an old broom handle, and a hanger.  His cape was made from leftover crafting fabric we had around the house.
