I'm being somebody who caught Empty Child plague for Halloween.  I have a cool 40s dress and shoes and am going to do my hair in victory rolls.  Scar on the hand, gas mask, good to go.  I bought an Israeli surplus gasmask for about twenty bucks.  It originally looked like this:

It's not a perfect match by any means, but I did want it to look more like the original mask.  Here's what it's supposed to look like:

I used the bottoms of soda cans for the eyes, foam and a plastic bottle for the filter, and blacked out the eyes with old pantyhose.  I'll post a photo of the whole costume after Halloween, but since I bought the dress it doesn't really belong here.  I'm super psyched for all the creepy "Are you my mummy?"-ing I plan to do.

That episode horrified me!  I think I had nightmares for weeks about creepy children.  What a fantastic idea for a costume.

I love it! As soon as I saw the picture on the front page I knew that it was from that episode. It also majorly freaked me out.

That mask is absolutely brilliant. My brother will go nuts when he sees it!

That episode was so creepy, even my tough football-loving father was spooked out Smiley

Good job - your costume would definitely send me running!

thanks, i was just about to go to bed, but there's no sleeping now that The Empty Child's back in my head!

Excellent job on the mask! I'd probably cry if I saw you at a halloween party or walking down the street or something.

That is fantastic! I just watched that episode like two days ago. Very awesome and very creepy. I look forward to seeing the whole costume put together.
