This is my first thread about some work I have done in the past. I was looking for a costume project last summer to join a group of friends at a convention. Time was pretty limited (a week) and took some few days of vacation to create the bubblehead nurse in the Silent Hill movie.
Shaping the head
Using my boyfriend plaster head cast (thanks honey!), I shaped the mask using strips of basic fun foam and melted camping foam with an heat gun.
Next, I added layers of mask latex, facial tissues and cheese cloth.
For the skin dress, I used my old High School science robe... (why did I kept that for so long... I guess it was meant to be ) A few stitches later, the dress was ready for massive latex work.
Using the same method as the mask, I added layers of latex and pieces of tissue on it.
My boyfriend was nice enough to make me this weapon of choice, so I could look a little more evil
After many hours of hairbrushing the costume, the final result:
FYI, the veins were airbrushed on my skin the day we did the convention. Call me crazy, we did it with createx paint.. and yes.. it itches after a while but the final result was beyond my expectations.
Hope you enjoy this!
