Character/Costume Description

This costume was made Latch hooking
Kanekalon hair onto a mesh shirt and
pants. The mask was fabricated from a
sculpted mold on an alginate full head
life cast. Fiberglass was used for the
mold and under skull and the mask
itself was formed from injected Eco-Flex
30. Teeth were made from a dental
wax-up and molded using methyl-
methacrylate. A retractive upper lip
mechanism was formed using guitar
strings and silicone tubing to the
articulating jaw aided to rest return
using a spring. Bandolier and bag was
purchased from Melanie M. Since I am
already 6'8'', platform boots were used
from Rivet Head. The toes were
purchased from Ryan Ricks. The total
height in costume is 7'4'' inches tall.
