    Here's a quick accessory that I created for this year's zombie costume for MHC. Made from plastic chain and an old $4 lantern from IKEA. It added a nice little voodoo accent with some spanish moss and an LED flicker tea light.

    I have been experimenting with liquid latex and fabric. I have created 2 unique costumes for the company I work with, All Seasons Entertainment. Because of the technique that is used, I can make any costume look as though it is made from human skin and acts as such. If you would like a unique...

    If you love the classic Universal monsters, you know well the creations of Jack Pierce. A rich vein of genius runs through his work, whether in his lesser known movies like "The Man Who Laughs" or "The Monkey Talks", or in the more famous "The Wolfman", "The Mummy" or "Frankenstein". In fact...

    Hey ghouls! I found this great video of an awesome spider costume/prop. Not so much as a how to, but just wanted to share this great vid. The way the limbs move so gracefully, the size of the thing, and it seems it's airfilled maybe? Anyway, hope you enjoy. :xbones:

    Hey forumers, trying to catch up on all my unposted content. Here are some pics for a Regan costume and makeup I created upon request for Halloween 2011. She was actually one of my teachers my sophomore year of highschool. Unfortunately the robe was made very last minute and was pretty far from...

    So due to the new jobs I've acquired, I don't seem to have a lot of free time (but whoa boy is having money again nice, I certainly do like eating every day!) and with trying to fund my movie still, I had to make a decision to either work on costumes or a Halloween display. Since it's one of my...

    Here I am as Beetlejuice and my best mate, Jody aka DJ Lydia Beatz (get it, haha!) as the gorgeous Lydia Deetz! These were actually our second night costumes that we wore for the club night Rue Morgue which she was a DJ at. The night before was the much more labour intensive costume that I...

    I went to the Edith Head Costume/Prop sale at Universal and I stumbled upon an entire rack of torn up, bloodied, and snow covered wardrobe from "The Thing" prequel. I couldn't resist and I got the whole thing for only $7.00. Looking forward to checking out the movie, I hope it's good. :/

    Hi guys! Just thought I would post videos of some of the stuff that's going into my front yard haunt. We're posting videos as stuff is completed and I don't plan on putting stuff out into the yard until right before it's halloween for fear of anything happening to it but I thought I would at...

    There's a really gorgeous Japanese SFX make up book that I guess is out of print now and commanding some high prices. If I get some time, I might scan in some of their really awesome finished looks. Amazon.com: A Complete Guide to Special Effects Makeup: Conceptual Artwork by Japanese Makeup...

    I've not been around these haunts in a while... hahaha, funny pun. :P Anyhoo! I've just been super busy, but it's been a good busy with paying gigs and in the acting/modeling world, it's sort of feast or famine. I'd just thought I'd share one of my costumes I created last year, hasn't gotten...

    PearlWhiteGT asked how to make a neck ruffle, specifically for clowns, and I struggled to explain through text so I drew him up a reference sheet on Paint and thought I might as well upload it for all to see. Its a pretty universal item. Clowns, jesters, period costumes, etc. Hope I made it...

    So more then a year ago I went to an Alice in Wonderland costume/birthday party and being as I LOVE the works of Lewis Carroll I knew I would have to create a costume. Problem was I couldn't find any character that I felt I REALLY wanted to make a costume for...so I made my own :P His name is...

    I've decided for my vampire castle haunt next year that one of the rooms will be a ghost room. I can either have it lit with black light or a colored light. My friend and I will be white ladies and I would love some ideas for our costumes. I have some 80s wedding dresses I could use but I want...

    Ok so after 3 years of tweaking this costume I honestly think I've PERFECTED it. About 20 hours of total work went into making this thing. The ENTIRE costume was made/sewn by myself, the entire cage was made and painted by myself, and all the makeup I did myself as well (all 40 minutes of it...

    Here's my halloween 2009 costume for my son. My son wanted to be the original 'Alien' from Alien. This is the original H.R. Giger Alien, not the various other shapes it morphed into in the sequels. It doesn't appear I have the right permissions to upload pictures yet, so I'll just point you at...
