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

Good job - your costume would definitely send me running!

*shudder*
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.
