Well I used a loooot of materials and it sort of depends where you live, how available some of the stuff are, I guess? But okay, prepare for a long list :'D As for the head, the base is made from superlon (I used an old mattress), and I poured liquid latex over that. The teeth are made from fimo. For the body, I sewed a bodysuit and covered it with latex as well. The wounds and the boils are made from superlon too. The armor-thingy is made from layers of cardboard, covered with fake leather, mostly put together by glue, the nails are mainly there for show. And the hand was the tricky part, I used cardboard and wonderflex together, same with the iron bars with the arms and legs, although the nails are real. As for the paint, I used acrylic paints and for the metal parts silver spray. The acrylics stick to latex pretty good, but places where the muscles move and flex the paint peels off. Also a word of caution, because the latex shrinks the body suit, so you have to be careful it still fits after the latex covering part!
I was wondering if anyone was crazy enough to do this! Besides me. I'm attempting it now. Probably won't look as good as this, though! I read some of the comments to see what you did. I got one of those body suits the color of skin and I'm editing it to look old and gross. Mine won't be as nice as yours, though! I'm making the sword out of cardboard as well. It took me quite a while to figure out how to try and attempt this. Wish I found this sooner so I could bother you with a ton of questions. Oh well.
yay another brute! and thanks a lot, although I'm sure you'll do much better than me and yeah there were couple of moments when I paused to think that what am I actually doing.. but yeah the planning process takes time (for me, I think I spent half a year just planning) but it gets so easy once you know how you're gonna do it. Are you planning to hide your arm inside the sword-thingy? If you do, double-check that it isn't too narrow for your arm, that happened to me :'D and if you can get your hands on wonderflex, that is a huge help for everything.
I spent just as long planning the thing. When you decide to do something like this, it's probably the only way to approach it. A lot of planning.
I do plan on hiding my arm in the sword. I'll definitely make sure my arm is as cozy as it can get. And wonderflex? Never used it before, but when I go get supplies, I'll definitely put it on the list and mess with it! Thanks!
yeah planning and testing :'D I wish I had some sort of test-suit before I made the actual because half of the time I made my costume was just covering up the mistakes I made T_T and I'm not sure if you can get wonderflex from regular shops, I bought it online, but I know they sell it in the US! It definitely saved me, especially with the arm because it was too tight and I could bend it little bit with wonderflex. Have you thought about you're going to do the nail...thingies? sorry I'm just very curious and I definitely want to see the final result!
