    Moved From Old site. Apparently it was hacked?

    Hello everyone.

    I'm not entirely new to this Forum because i have been around just kind of reading and taking notes and I have been sick for about 7 months now. So it gave me alot of free time. So I got myself into costuming! This was my first costume ever that I decided to make for a halloween contest. Which I won first place![​IMG]

    Here are some pictures:

    THE MASK:

    It took Me about 3 months to complete. I built 4 of those masks until I settled with the one I wore. It was the second of the four. They were made from Paper mache and Plaster of paris. The "Eyebrows" were made form clay that I put overtop the paper mache to get the size right. I then used the plaster to mold it into the shape It became. took about two weeks for everything to be finished on any given mask. After I decided which to use I bought a Very think yet dark fabric that I could see through and glued it around the eye sockets. Then i took a little kids bicycle helmet and super glued it to the inside so it would fit snug on my head.

    THE BOWTIE:

    The bowtie was made from coat hangers and pilliow cases. I bent about 4 hangers into "ackward" bat wing shapes. then covered them tightly in torn pillow cases. The bat itself was molded from clay and painted and superglued to the hangers.

    THE SUIT:

    The suit was by far the easiest thing. Its just a black suit I bought at a local thrift store. I had it hemed to make me look as skinny as possible. Then I took fabric paint with a drawing nossle on it and ran it down the length of the suit. I atteched the bowtie to the suit with safety pins that you couldent see from the front or side.

    Well thats all I have for now. I'm currently trying to work on Ironman from the live action movies. But I don't want to do the helmet because i have tried 5 of them with no good results[​IMG]. So I think im going to purchase a helmet and build the rest of the suit myself. Let me know what you guys think and feel free to ask questions!. Thanks
