The way I have done it in the past is to mix three parts cornsyrup with one part water. Then when that is thoroughly mixed start adding drops of red food coloring until the desired color is achieved. When the perfect color is achieved, add flour to the mixture to thicken it. Stir completely until all lumps are gone and the "blood" is sufficiently thick. After the "blood" is created, add it to your clothes and let it dry for atleast 10 minutes, although it will be sticky at that time, once it is completely dry it won't be sticky.

Or I'm sure you could find more professional stuff at a halloween store Smiley

I think adding a pair of goggles (like that of aviator ish ones) along with other accesories would make it more steampunk. Link not over your eyes, but just across your forehead

that look a little like this http://www.pyramidcollection.com/itemdy00.asp?T1=P28270&srccode=NXCPC6

So I think this build is dead and I will just parade around in my ghillie suit again this year for halloween.

I'm probably gonna start making custom latex masks and selling them to repay my debt to my parents for the enormous amount of money I put into this project.

This might be against craftster rules, but if anybody is interested I'd probably be able to make one for somebody for a commission just send a PM

So as an update (sorry no pics of my work) I have the front of the torso done, both forearms, and most of the thighs done.

Im having trouble with how I want to do the cod piece which looks like this.

I could attach it to an old belt (the attaching wouldn't be a problem) But the problem is that the chimera doesnt wear a belt (shown here)...

 and its only held up by the cooling tubes that run from his low to mid back around his hips and attaching to the sides of the cod. I could attach it like how I just explained, but it would make it extremelly hard to get the torso/back on.

so theres my dilemma. The only viable option I see is to make the cod removable and attach it to the tubes/pipes everytime I put it on or attach it to the belt (along with the butt plate) and then also make it removable with the tubing.

I just wanted your guys' input. All help/comments/criticism is appreciated

Not being very crafty myself  Undecided

Where do you get the plastic canvas form? something like michaels?

So changing directions, I quickly drew up a template for a weapon to go with the costume. not sure if I'm gonna do this one or a different one (which would just be modding a nerf Maverick)

But here is the quick template of a (not exact replica) L11-2 Dragon

The games looks like this

Or I was just going to make the HE .44 Magnum...

...out of a either a Nerf Maverick...

...which I know wouldn't make it very close in detail or proportionally at all, but  I'd have the maverick ready at hand.

Or I could buy a cap gun revolver and paint it and and a few detail with foam

I haven't decided which yet and this is just an idea im toying with. Ill probably make these last after the armor if I do make them.

I screwed up the mold, so Im back to square one. Idk if Im going to do the sculpt or if I want to work on the armor and rest of the costume.

Updates within the next week
