    Oct 26, 2011, 12:21 AM - ZOMBIE TIN MAN from wizard of oz costume #1

    Here's a halloween costume project that I've been working on for a friend.
    The theme is zombie wizard of oz (my idea) and I told him I'd help make the tin man.
    The other costumes are dorothy, scarecrow, and lion, but I'm not working on those.
    I drew up a rough concept and started making it from scratch.
    It's super flexible ABS and will be relatively comfortable.
    This is the progress so far.
    Have to finish out the helmet, detail pieces on the armor, and then give it zombie weathering and blood.
    I'll keep posting pics as it progresses.

    That's so awesome! On top of the fact, that would still make an amazing original Tin Man base!

    Thanks guys!

    Here's still what's on the to-do list:
    - Create armor for shoulder.
    - Create armor for neck.
    - Detail abdomen and neck seal.
    - Attach eye pieces.
    - Distress the entire costume to look grimy and bloody.
    - Possibly include some sort of axe.

    This whole thing was rushed together in just a few evenings and it has to be done by the end of tonight!

    Here's more progress pics:

    Yep. It has to be done by tonight (Fri).
    And I agree, has to have an axe.
    I still have to add grime and blood and also finish the axe.

    Here's the latest batch of progress pics:

    That's the plan, but running out of time.

    Thanks guys. It was fun little project only a few days in the making but I think it turned out okay.
    I literally had about an hour to do all the weathering and blood before we had to leave.

    Here are some pics of the finalized suit:

    Looks awesome as a killer tinman, but definitely not zombielike

    What an awesome idea. Not sure how a man made out of tin could be a zombie, but I have to admit...it is FREAKIN' cool! I don't think that I will ever look at the Wizard Of Oz the same way again.

    Well Done!

    Thanks guys.
    It was fun to cut loose a bit and make something from scratch based on a quick sketch.
    I think this is the only non star wars related piece I've ever shown on the rpf in all 13 years of being on here.
