A few years ago I made a Ryuk costume from the anime/manga/movie Death Note - and I decided the time had come for me to revisit the series and go as another Shinigami (Death God) named Rem.

Originally I was going to sculpt, mold and cast a latex suit, but after sculpting and making the torso, I hit a block. My mold locked and I couldn't get it open! I still wanted to make Rem so I took a different route to make a faster, cheaper costume.

In a nutshell I made a bodysuit, glued craft and upholstery foam and backer rod to it, covered it with latex and repeated this method for the feet and hands. I also made a wig and face (chin and nose) prosthetic. It's not as detailed as I would like, but overall I am very happy with the results.

..and this costume was constructed in about two and a half weeks, so, er you can still make it in time for Halloween Wink I have a full tutorial up on how it was made over here Cheesy
