    Didn't have time for accuracy, but literally made this pattern, cut it out and assembled this thing from scratch since noon today. I'll go back and accurize later. :)

    This is the pile of junk I started with today:

    These are how he turned out around 8pm tonight:

    Cool! I think a bit of weathering and he'd look * near perfect!

    Holy. Crap.

    I'm gonna' be the goon that asks you where you got your bodyform, how much it cost, and how much you would charge me to do the PJs and mask. I bought the burlap, and wanted to make a display, but I can't sew for anything.

    I did, however, make this:

    http://www.therpf.com/f9/my-attempt-trick-r-treat-sam-head-repaint-74900/

    And I'd love to attach the head to a bodyform to make a display.

    I second that, where did you come by the pose-able mannequin? The fingers look great on it and you did an excellent job on the mask. I couldn't find anything big enough for the head until I came by a giant Styrofoam globe at Michaels. $20.00 though for it, ouch! I've been meaning to redo the button eyes on mine and the stitching material (can't remember the name of it).

    I got the mannequin from ebay. Just do a search for poseable mannequin and I think this one was a 5yr old mannequin or thereabouts. He was part of a two pack believe it or not. Gonna use the other one to rebuild my ewok. Wish I had time to make the costumes for you, but honestly, all you have to do get a pattern for footed pajamas, take that and 3yds of fabric to your local seamstress and let her make the costume. Take her plenty of pics to her and you won't be disappointed. :) Probably run you about $60 for the services. I'd be charging at least double that if I had the time. Thanks for the kind words fellas. Just wait til you see him all weathered up.

    I'm gonna have to get mine finished up. Been standing in my bedroom for years now. You've inspired me! :thumbsup

    Any tips on the sucker?

    Only tip is that the mannequin is the key, a good flexible mannequin with separate fingers, makes the assembly a breeze. I used a fake pumpkin for the head, cut a hole and put the pumpkin over the mannequin head and supported the sides with foam rubber squares, holds nicely. The rest is just sewing and cutting etc...weathering.

    The lollypop is just a circle of plexiglass I cut with a dremel. I then drew the bite mark and dremeled that out. I cut a slot the approximate width of the stick. Stick is a styrene tube which is simply covered with blue tape in a spiral. Of course I will be painting it orange and using black in a spiral for the final version. I used CA glue to attach the two. The plexi was painted with a transparent duplicolor yellow and red mix until it was the orange I wanted. Right out of the rattle cans. I started with the yellow and did a pretty light red coat. The face of the lolly was painted with a brush with black acrylic paint.

    Excellent job on the weathering! If I saw that outside I'd toss all the candy I had out the door and then hide under the bed!

    Someone asked earlier how I got the burlap to look smooth on the head.....it's a matter of fitting and sewing it on the sides. Pulls out all wrinkles except the collar portion at the neck.

    basically I folded the fabric in half and sewed a stitch parallel and close to the fold. Then you open up the fabric, lay the folded/stitched part down onto one half and stitch that down using a zigzag stitch. This creates the ridge that goes down the center of his face. Hand stitch the twine sutures across this ridge as seen in the pic. Then you place this on his head and pin it in place all along the ridge front to back making sure to leave enough to create the collar area below his neck.

    Then you cut the fabric from the sides of the neck (in line with his shoulders) up to that ridge. Now you just pull the wrinkles out of the fabric and pinch the fabric on both sides of his head top to bottom except once you get down to the widest portion of the side of the head....you just pin it from that point straight down and not go under the bottom curvature of the sides of the head. This is so the hood will pull over the pumpkin. If it were pinned below that it would never pull over the head/pumpkin.

    Pin it in this position. Now remove the hood and sew it beside the pins. Cut the excess fabric about 1/4" beside the row of stitching It will now look like a typical hood.

    Now you simply turn it inside out and pull it down onto the head.

    Tie a rope around the neck and arrange the bottom like you see it in the film and trim any excess until it looks like the film.

    Then attach the eyes and then stitch the mouth in place. It's really that simple. Then weather it up. dark browns and blacks and some red to look like mud and dried blood. :)

    This is Sam 2.0. He's completely new. I wanted to remake it after seeing all the things that bugged me from the first go around. I'm pretty happy with the results.
