Cosplayer Faraday > Costume of Spitter from Left 4 Dead 2
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Every year I wear this it changes, lol.
First two years included a latex + tissue mouth.
2013 was the introduction of the silicone prosthetic I made off of a mold of my face. Holes were cut into the silicone 'gum line' and I adhered plastic, press-on nails in as 'teeth'. Silicone is pretty tough to paint and I didn't have the pigment you add into the mixture to color it because it didn't arrive in time, so I spent, like, two hours in the hotel room the day-of just stippling it with anything and everything I had trying to come up with the best way to blend it with my face. (Blood just a lot of blood)
Next time I wear the prosthetic I'll be sure to make the edges thin enough so I don't have to worry about them too much. It was my first time making a prosthetic so it could be worse, lmao.
- Personal Thoughts:
- "Birds ate my face."
