1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Silent Hill Nurse Costume! on: October 18, 2012 05:00:57 PM
Thank you! Yes, I was surprised Michael's had them too! Even the woman who worked there that I asked didn't know they had them, but I scoped them out!

I had two mask "prototypes"; one was newspaper+mache which I lay on the foam mask, which had been wrapped in plastic wrap, but it was too small for my head. The second was newspaper and toilet paper+mache built on the foam head but not around, but that one got moldy (SO much yuck! It turned green and fuzzy and I almost threw up.) So then I gave up and bought the strips  Roll Eyes The front of the mask is built off of a cheap dollar store mask, laid onto the foam head to keep it in place. It took a lot of trial and error to get it to the size I wanted! I'd wait for it to dry, then check how it looked on me so I'd know where to add extra padding. But I am definitely appreciative of the dollar store mask because it keeps the plaster off my face! It was also a lot of help to figure out where my nose, eyes, etc. would be. Then when that was totally dry, I put a plastic bag on my head with holes cut out with the mask over that on my face and my lovely boyfriend then wrapped the back of my head with the first layer of plaster. I kept it on until it dried a little then took it off so I could finish the rest (and breathe properly!) I hope that makes sense! The mask took the most trial-and-error.

It's a little difficult to get on and off; I don't think anyone else could wear it properly because it is fitted to my head and face. But I wanted it snug because I didn't want my head to be shifting everywhere seeing as I may be attending a concert or two in full Silent Hill garb Smiley
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Silent Hill Nurse Costume! on: October 18, 2012 03:07:32 PM
Hey guys! Long time no craft!

I decided this year I wanted my Halloween costume to be awesome. So! I decided to make a Silent Hill nurse costume! I fell in love with the costume designs when I first saw the movie (can you blame me?! They rock!) I've been working on it on and off for the past two months, and all in all, I think it looks okay! I used a few Instructables tutorials, as well as pictures online as reference, and a lot of it was very by the seat of my pants when things didn't go how I wanted Wink Please forgive the current quality of pictures; I'll post better ones after I have a photoshoot with a friend sometime next week  Roll Eyes

The costume!


I used plaster strips from Michael's. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Hardens super fast, malleable, SUCH a pleasure to work with and cheap!

Back of the mask. It's pretty much a helmet on my head, but there is a tiny concealed nose hole, plus it's lifted a bit off my face so I CAN breathe okay! Not perfect, but I can survive!

If anyone is interested in learning about how I did it/links to sites I used, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm very proud of it Roll Eyes I know it's not perfectly like the game/movie version, but it's close enough for me! Smiley

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: need help redecorating my room ! on: June 30, 2009 03:36:07 PM
A bit late, but...
I'd put up curtains for some color, yes. Are you allowed to put anything at all on the walls? Because if there's wall space some posters or pictures could liven things up, and give the room a bit more personal touch. Or pictures of crafts you'd like to make for inspiration! :]
Maybe the two of you could paint or draw or (whatever other medium you like to work with) something to put on the walls.
Also, are you able to get a rug if you'd like to cover up a bit of the woodenness of the floor?

Eeek this is awesome! I love the Sims, but unfortunately my game crashed, I lost all my info and I haven't had time to reinstall the game. Long story short, back up files, hehe. Anyway, this totally makes me want to make some Sims style stuff to keep me company! Thanks Cheesy
