My boyfriend and I had a Halloween party on Friday night. We woke up on Friday morning asking ourselves: "What costume are we gonna wear?" So we needed a quick costume that doesn't cost much.
Because we're big videogames geeks, my boyfriend decided to go as Pyramid Head, the main villain from the game Silent Hill 2 and also seen in the Silent Hill movie. He made the costume almost all by himself, mostly based on images from the movie version of the character. I don't have any work in progress shots though...
So here is the costume!
He started with a beige fleece piece that I already had at home. He cut it in the shape of an apron (the original character has only a half apron and no shirt, but my boyfriend is more prude than that
) He then went outside and put dirt and splashed red paint mixed with water to make the dirty/gory look of the apron.
He then did the hat/headpiece with a cardboard box and a lot of duct tape. He then made the eyeholes and put some screen to cover the holes (the screen is only part we had to buy). Then he also put dirt and some reddish brown paint on the headpiece so it looks rusted and gory.
The big weapon was made by his brother some time ago (duct tape, foam mats, PVC pipes), so he "borrowed" it and put dirt and red paint on it too.
And the finishing touch: red paint on his arms
Another shot of the costume!
Here are 2 pictures of the Pyramid Head from the movie:
And a last picture of him with me and my own costume (I'm dressed as a Moogle from Final Fantasy, I know the contrast is funny
) I'm not entering the contest though, it's only my boyfriend's costume.
Hope you like it, sorry for all the gore though!
