Title: Costumes (home and haunt)
Post by: Slappy on September 15, 2011, 11:01:14 AM
I don't think we've ever done a thread on costumes, sadly.  So let's see some costumes.  Your costume, a friend's costume, your character's costume if you work at a haunt, or maybe just a costume you saw and took a picture of.   Show us what you got!

Very cool Slaughter.  Where did Freddy's costume come from?

various parts... not screen accurate, like most of mine I use what I like & looks good to me.... I don't want the handcuffs of being "exactly like ANY movie". The sweater is rubies deluxe, pants grey dickies with weathering details, metal glove is a trademarked "Nightmare on elm" collector piece that has been modified for use, "the finger holes for the ring & little finger were HUGE, so copper sleves were intalled to tighten up the feel, left hand was is/was EBAY JUNK... stay away for these... I only still use it because I don't want to spend $400 dollars for a CFX silicone glove that an actor WILL destroy, & the mask well it is called  "butterfingerz"  from The Devils Latex, & is the CLOSEST likeness of  Robert E. I've seen to date, it looks much better on a guy with a smaller head, mine is BIG and round & dosen't do the mask justice.

Slaughter, the nose and mouth look A LOT like Robert Englund, it's pretty impressive.  Interesting that you had to do that work to the glove to make it fit decently.  Then again, nothing's perfect.

Badger, good effects on the face.  And of course, love the knee pads for proper and safe sliding.

I think this year I'm going to just pick-up some liquid latex and work on my own facial prosthetic or something. Maybe save some trouble of buying masks and stuff...Scarowinds has had some of the best costumes/make-up I have seen at a haunt. They always, to me, go "top-notch" with the contacts and extra touches...

When we toured  monster central at scarowinds, inside the building, at the back there was a wig with all these eyeballs attached. I wish I had gotten a photo but I didn't. I'd like to know the character that wears it.

Terrorizer, amazing things can be done with liquid latex and simple products most people have at home - toilet paper, cotton balls, paper towels.  Check the internet, even youtube, there are countless sites and videos with how-to's and instructions.

Slappy, I figured that out last year when I stumbled upon how to layer paper towels and create scars, rips, etc. looking forward to new stuff this year!!

~honey~ is doing some awesome infected veins with cotton balls and latex at Hacker House this year.  It's time consuming, but looks awesome.

I plan on expanding this year by having our victims go through our garage, up the stairs and through the front door as the exit.    Any recommendations for the garage part?

I've always been a fan of    "use what you got"  I mean you'll never make the inside of your garage look like anything other than that without a lot of work, so it might work best... as a garage... do you have a work bench in there? put some body parts on it or make  a body that will look as it as been tortured on your work bench, use your tools if they are hanging above... cover them with fake blood, if you have a mower in your garage like most people you could make some fake legs hanging  out from under it & pour your fake blood all over like you just used it on the poor guy, use your imagination.. a garage haunt can have some great scenes with out a "buch of black plastic &  skeletons" & be more "real" as a garage.
just my 2 cents...
Happy haunting
Slaughter

I do have a workbench and various tools in there.  Those are great ideas!  Thanks for your help.  I will update as I work on it and let you know what direction I'm going in.
