Its time for an update on my Silent Hill Inspired Monster Costume (really need a better name comment if you have a good one)
After taking a break from the costume last year im really amping it up this year with the details on this costume.
UPDATES TO BE DONE!
-I purchased a Flesh Colored Lycra Spandex Zentai Suit online and it should be here in a week or so, and i could not be more excited to start the grossifying process to give it that trademark silent hill monster skin look. splotchy and bruised. and since the suit will be all one piece of fabric with small seems it will help sell the illusion that my body actually looks like that. main point! no Seams! And i will finally get what Ive always wanted from the very initial design of this costume a skin tight mask.
- The Silly String Chest Rig i wore the last year i wore the costume was great but it had some major flaws. in mechanical design its fantastic but only until i need to swap out the empty can for a new one... it was hell and a waste of time swapping the cans, so im completely remaking the chest rig to be more compact, more secure to my body, and the big one easier to change the spray can for a new one.
- I'm Stripping the Arm stilts and the leg stilts and re-upholstering them in a sense to more more lightweight and secure on me, after a couple of hours of putting most of my weight on my hands which are holding onto tiny metal poles i couldn't use my hands the next day. so i will be greatly improving the grips inside the arms. as well as making the forearm support straps a bit more comfortable.
- As well as stripping the arms of the fabric before i put the fabric back on i will be enlarging the diameter of the arms with something a little more stable and lightweight, right now there is a pillow and ton of stuffing inside each arm that makes the bottom of the arms just a bit too heavy.
so there is a lot to be done in two months but i am not missing out this Halloween... we had kids and parents coming to our house asking about "the big monster guy" i must not disappoint my fans this year
I will post pictures of the updates as they come, right now its going a little slow waiting for the zentai suit and getting the other peices of the costume to my apartment so yea im going a little nuts...
