Undead Demon Costume - DONE by Lizard-of-Odd Undead Demon Costume - DONE by Lizard-of-Odd
Happy Halloween!

This year I decided to sit myself down and actually make a big in-depth costume...I doodled the design for this critter in my notebook one day, started messing with it...and woosh...piece by piece it was made.
Unfortunately I'm really tired and hungry right now, so I'm going to be brief. Feel free to ask about any details. My apologies for the huge file size.

Completed! OMG!!

Overall time: Like 3 weeks-ish. Also did claws, lots of tattered cloth, and tattered up shoe things. I'll post those later.
I'm waiting on a full-picture thing of the entire costume....they're on my mom's camera and I can't get them until she's at work tomorrow, sooo....you wait. :D
I'll see if I can get some really good shots of the whole thing anyway at some point. Was great fun scaring the squirmies.... ;D

And yes, that's my mouse curser over one of the webcam shots. I'm a moron.

Hopefully I can do a better 'completed' collage at some point. But like I said. I'm starving. Time for dinner. WOOSH!!!

I really need to make a mask and claws of a very similar nature as the latex mask I purchased for my costume (Gurthraug) is eventually going to deteriorate and yours here is in a word PERFECT for the outfit. Combined with the black and red leather armor I have in mind.

WOW!! wicked mask

You can search all over for cool halloween masks but it seems the only way to get a good one is to make it yourself

Bravo!!

A truly great mask!!!

To hinge the jaw, try strips of leather- this is what marionette makers use for joints, and leather is easily incorporated into paper-and-glue rag sculptures of this sort.

I've been using your WIPs(along with a photo collection of coyote skulls) for my current Halloween costume. Might I ask how you got the jaw to stay like that? Let alone move when you talk/open your mouth.
I've figured out a few things, like I have a base on the bottom to fit under my chin/jaw... but I can't figure out how to keep it from falling. D:

I've been looking around at different "how to's"with fursuit heads, but it's a bit difficult being well.. I'm basically using a lot of carboard, tape, and maybe some paper. Got any tips? D:

BTW I think it turned out awesome. :D I bet you got lots of compliments on yer costume.

it's Amazing! I tried so long to make a mask of an ALIEN and a skeleton (skull) but I don't find the way to start. I don't find something to anchor the structure. You have an excellent idea!

Yeah, that was my problem for several weeks....couldn't figure out how to start because of it. Finally I decided that I'd just need some kind of mask to work with, so I went and looked around...found that white mask thing in a fabric store. It worked perfectly, so I highly reccomend it. :D

I started doodling it weeks before I started...so every day I'd usually doodle some more and think up various plans for how things could work and whatnot...a lot of it kinda came on the fly though. It wasn't that difficult...not saying it to sound cocky, but to say I think if you have the vision you can do it. :)
Thanks very much!! ^^#

Wow... Can't really say anything that won't be in the next fifty comments, but... That's pretty freaking sweet.

Just wondering, though... How was the jaw attached to the rest of it, or was it just tied to your own jaw? I can't figure it out.

It's attached using some black nylons...makes it kinda stretchy so I can open it with my own jaw, yet keepts it pretty tight. It actually doesn't work that great...when I try to open it, the pressure on my nose is insane and painful...lol. Have to figure out a way to attach it so it moves better. I'm considering just using tape or something so it sticks to my chin without the pressure. >.>
Thanks muchly for the comment. ^^!

Ahh, makes sense now. And, looking at the first picture again, I think I can actually see the string.

I would almost suggest making some kind of hinge, so the jaw stays on the mask. But I'm not exactly sure how to make that work, and this mask is already done. Mm. Ah, nevermind.

It's a crime not to comment on something this cool. Just doin' my civic duty.

My original designs had a hinge of some kind on them, but I couldn't really figure one out that worked. I figured the jaw would move in a hinge-like fashion, but it actually just moves up and down. It's odd.
And jeez. ^^# thanks!
