Handmade Fat Suit and Silicone Mask

I've wanted to make a fat suit and matching fat silicone mask for quite some time so, I pulled the trigger and put on the pounds! I watched the Stan Winston tutorials on making a fat suit and enlisted my wife's help on making the suit. I used a mixture of large and small foam pellets bladders with the padding to smooth everything out. For the mask, I used a silicone lifecast of my face as a base, sculpted the rest out of medium grade monster clay and made a two part ultra-cal mold to brush in the PlatSil Gel Silicone 0030. I layered in the skin tone/pigments with an airbrush to give it that extra vile and sweaty look :smile:

As for the costume itself, I had it custom made to match the fat suit (I can't sew too well) and had a local bridal shop let it out even more...you should have seen their faces while I danced around the store to make sure it fit! 

Final costume outside my custom build mausoleum!
