So hard to choose one costume to enter...I made three cool costumes for my girls but I guess the grinch is the coolest!
The thing that makes it work is the latex appliance that gives her face the right shape
I created the mask by doing a plaster cast of her face and building up a clay nose and forehead. Then I painted layers of liquid latex to create an appliance that I can glue on with spirit gum.
The hood, pants, gloves and shoes were all done without a pattern. The hood, gloves and shoes were done with a ducttape and fabric encasing method. After encasing with fabric and tape, I cut the tape into pattern pieces...makes for a perfect fit.
Everything in the costume was made by me from top to bottome
And, of course, it was inspired by the movie with Jim Carrey. Hope you like it
