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!  Huh 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 crafted
http://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.



construction notes:

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!

OMG!!! I LOVE this SOOOOO much! I love Egyptian gods and if I had any art talent I'd make a Bast mask for next year but unfortunately I could only sew the costume! By the way what did you use to make your skin black like that?

Fantastic!  I don't think I'd want to run into the 2 of you in a dark alley.  Intimidating.

i think you should give it a go, start off with some plaster bandage from a craft store (and a lot of newspapers for the floor) and have at it Smiley

i used temptu body paint, which was a royal pain but absolutely amazing.
