You guys and gals out there in Internet land might be wondering why I'm working on two costumes for Halloween so early in the year.

One word:  University...

I have two sets of inspiration this year.  So, it's two costumes for costuming sake.  One is an "extra large box of condoms", and one is Silent Hill.  I've made the basic forms for both, and both costumes will be under $10 when finished.

Modifications to Pyramid Head:
-  bar clubbing --> no weapons
-  modified tee shirt and black pants as butcher's outfit

Modifications to Magnum Condoms
-  removable condom --> wired into the costume, and the audience can pull it out
-  large lettering and raised Trojan logo

Here are the in-process pics:

Basically, my question to you is:  what would you recommend as a cheap ass sealent?  I'm going to use acrylic paints and I was thinking either mod-podge (but STICKY), or watered down tacky glue.  Also, what can I use to stain a white shirt to look like blood?

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

Looking for:  ATCs, some dry non-sanded grout mix

instead of using watered down tacky glue, use white wood glue watered down, it dries clear and will also have a nice glossy finish.

to stain the t-shirt to look like blood use perhaps red food coloring mixed with glue to make it globby. I have never tried this but it could work. i suggest testing it on a scrap peice of fabric before you start.

let me know how it turns out.
