About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The jacket was made from a jacket pattern that I altered quite a bit to get the desired look. This required completely drafting a new collar pattern and changing the sleeves from being set-in to raglan. The souls for the front and back were satin-stitched on. The headband was made with fleece and the buttons are made with craft foam that I glued onto the headband. The teeth were made with fake nails that I cut down to fit each of my teeth (8 on both the top and bottom) and adhered with Poly-grip, which works well but probably isn't the best thing out there. They required re-application every couple hours and I had to use just the right amount--too much and it would ooze out and too little and they wouldn't stay on. The shoes were something too, and admittedly they look kinda ridiculous haha. But I used fabric and thick interfacing with a platform sandal base (needed to try to be comparable to my Death the Kid)! The pants and undershirt were bought and modified to fit. Photos thanks to Jolt Photography!
- Styling Notes
- The wig was styled using Got2B Glued and hairspray. I did some heaving cutting to sculpt the spikes, would cover them in product, and use a hairdryer to get them to stay in place.
- Wig Review
- It's pretty thick. It looks better not to have crimped fibers near the base, but that means a little more work is needed to get the spikes to stay up.
