Let me weigh it for you and check
hmm, it looks a little heavy
This year I decided to go as Anubis (or Anput I guess, as I am female)
I try to do couple type costumes with my SO, though this year i'm not sure it counts so i'm just posting mine for the challenge, and will post his separately in the halloween forum.
onto more pictures
wheee jackal shadow
up close profile/head shot
goofy picture, i'm hungry for souls!
and obligatory silly photo
and a quick teaser of me and the man outside in the dark (which also shows why all my pictures are in bright daylight!
sigh) i was an ancient death god, and he was an incarnation of more modern death (grim reaper/demonized death if you will)
Here is a link to my SO's costume posted in the halloween forum, which i also craftedhttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=277269.0
final thoughts, if i were to do it all again (and i totally would) i think i would pass on the black paint this time - what a mess! but it was worth it, I won second prize out at the bar.
Everything was made by me except the boots. garments were strips of stretch twill sewn together to look like mummification wrappings, with some strips of stretchy fabric wrapped around my legs and boots.
The mask is foam applied to a plaster bandage mask, carved and then sealed and painted (papier mache, glue, etc) and then sealed again with kryolan crystal clear acrylic spray. no process pics of the clothes (boring!) but here's a few i remembered to snap of the mask. i'm bad for remembering pictures when i'm elbow deep in art gunk
as always, i'm happy to share construction methods or elaborate details. I can ramble on about my design decisions, but i'm afraid to bore y'all, so just ask!
thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed my costume!
