Hi guys! I am thrilled to see all the fantastic work here, so inspiring! I am a costume construction student in Wellington, New Zealand and this is my graduation project. She is a Lord of Change, modelled after an illustration from Warhammer - The Age of Reckoning. The mask is fully articulated as you can see in the two short videos. I loved working on this project, it was fantastic to be able to immerse myself so completely into the recreation of tiny details and trying to figure out which materials to use, especially since we had to stick to a very tight budget. We were allowed to spend NZ$ 200 on store bought materials and were given an allowance of NZ$80 on stock we had in the workroom (mostly fasteners, interfacing...) so all in all NZ$280 for this baby and I am happy that I could pull it of! Big challenge with a big reward! Looking forward to see more great work here!!

I took on a large Halloween project and this was my first time using L200 foam, creating latex masks/molds, electronics with voice changers/speakers, making a vacu-form mold and custom painting. I grew up loving Halloween and each year I expand my knowledge building unique costumes. I went to the extreme this year to see what I could accomplish. Hope you enjoy.

Hello! First time posting here. This is my costume that I made using Ted Haines tutorials. I loved watching him make the giant foam T-Rrex and learning the technique he used. I got the monster building bug and just had to build this creature! This is a Goren from World of Warcraft concept.
