Howdy my fellow RP-mutha-F%$kers!. lol Just figured I'd share some photos of a costume I created for Halloween a few years back. I wanted to make my own take on a Samurai Oni demon concept. I sculpted this on an Ultracal lifecast of my head using monster clay, then I made a mold with Ultracal and ran it in foam latex tinted red then airbrushed/handpainted in the details with Monster Makers mask paint. I had my younger brother help me apply it, and he made his own mask/costume Oni as well and I helped him apply his mask. I made the teeth as well using dental acrylic etc. The horns were all sculpted with Monster clay and silicone molds were made and I ran them in Smoothcast resin from Smooth-on. The Samurai armor was made using patterns I found of authentic Samurai armor online. I made tracings of the patterns in my Felxisign program and cut out stencils in vinyl with my sign decal cutter/plotter and I applied them to cardboard and then contact cemented them to a red fake leather and punched holes for all the lacing. I ordered a bulk bunch of shoelaces off ebay and it took FOREVER to lace the pieces together! lol. I still haven't made a Samurai helmet but I may do that some day. I also found patterns and instructions online for sewing authentic Samurai clothing and sewed the Hakama and Kosode (shirt and pants) myself as well. All in all I am pretty stoked with how it turned out. On top of it all I drum in a band and we played a local bar for Halloween that night. Man was I toasty! I had a giant fan blowing on me and had to keep going outside after sets ha ha. Anyways I hope you guys all dig it. Thanks for looking, and stay healthy my friends!. Oh and I attached a video as well so you can see me emote with the mask on etc.
