New blood costume life-sized commission

OK been working like a madman on this for the last 4 weeks and it is just about done. This is a commison for a guy in France and I think he is going to love it as it turned out spectacular. I weathered the clothes as much as posble yet still be wearable for someone who I cannot really accurately ze it up on if they are not here, so it may not fit perfectly on the mannequin but should still look great on it. Luckily he is about my height but bigger pants, so had to really belt them up on the little mannequin waist. I kept the rips a little smaller and confines just to be sure they fit him and he can make them bigger if needed, also kept the sleeve longer for the same reason. I really happy with the costume though and actually hate to let it go now lol. But I will be doing another personal one for myself and maybe a display one so I can shred it up more.

Here are some teaser pics for now, will have a lot more soon and videos on youtube as well. Still waiting on the mask so that I can paint it to match the other parts. I also latexed in the parts on the pants so the customer does not have to worry about underpants matching the holes etc, and those areas are usually tight to the clothes anyway. The rotted flesh that I made turned out perfect, can't wait to do the outdoors pics in a few days. The ones with flash over-exaggerate the brightness of the colors but outdoors should give more accurate colors. I used a lot of different color stages, and ended with the mud look when he just got out of the lake and when he got up out of the mud puddle. I will still be touching it up once I get it on the mannequin.

Few more quick ones without flash as flash washes too much out. I am just gonna wait for outdoors for the rest. Also this is not meant to fit the mannequin perfectly as I said but still matches up pretty good. Also has no hands so the arms look shorter, but my life-zed part 7 up next will have longer more form filled hands nce I will be ung the Nightowl ones.

OK here are some outdoor pics which show the colors more accurately, and with the Vengeance and Nightowl 7 hands. The hands make it look more like a life-zed. I also did not bulk this up as much being it is a costume and the cuts would be too big for the client, but I will be doing another one that is even bigger and more bulked up later on, maybe also a display only shirt so I can shred it even more. I still need to touch up the chain and seal it. Parts also by TTB and repainted some by me as the bones were white. Mask is by MosterFX and my personal one, still working on weather the straps on the other one. Got some vids coming soon too.

Thanks! :) Video of costume in action, reenactment from the scene in the beginning of him coming out of the lake.


Could only get two costume pics as it is hot as hell in that suit indoors when it is 90 degree out, and very hard to push buttons with the gloves on. I wore the Nightowl ones here which are alittle short for these sleeves as they were made for my other gloves, but still work. Also repainted the Rubies mask to match, will get better outdoors pics later. Got one more costume video coming too later on." class="photoborder" />
