Work in progress, been working on it about 4 weeks now and the jacket s a major pain, also added my own fabric in the back for a liner. I posted the jacket awhile back, which is a barn jacket like the screen used one, although not burlap. I painted it some to look more like burlap, and it is a lo tmore comfortable and not as hard to work with. Was going to do the sleeves but would be too much of a pain nce the liner is connected to them. I went for the burnt/charred look and used some tinted latex to give that wet looking burnt bloody affect. Got the costume bout 90% done and waiting on the hockey mask and some other stuff to complete it. Also making some eyes to display it as a lifezed. Might sell it when done.
Also found the perfect gray sweater and blue undershirt, as well brown pants. Could not find any wool in the right zes so I went with the same material as all my other pants which weather up great and are comfortable to wear. Will be ung my regular height boots as I do not own platforms as I think they look lly, plus I made this to sell anyway. Love how it is turning out so far! Will be able to see the details better towards the end with outdoor pics and video.

Just about done and ready for outdoor pics and video costume test. Just finishing up detailing and added a super realistic thick blood gel that stays looking wet. :) Waiting on the hock to arrive now. Also finished the gloves and eye work. Wanted to do a VS machete but have no time now. Glad I was finally able to do the VS look and now I want to keep it lol. I got a lot of requests for this costume so when I saw the jacket for sale I decided to finally do one. Can't wait to finish it up should be done in a day or so.

OK got it done! Hock is by Els Studios, undermask by The Devil's Latex, eye is by the Propshop, other eye is by me which I just made rotted flesh to match the other. This has a thick blood as I said before that looks wet even after it dries. The blood is slightly darker than shown as light is reflecting off the gloss. I also tried not to bulk this too much as the clothes barely fit this as it is my large mannequin with extended arms. Would fit a regular posed mannequin better though and still works with this. Stands 6'6" with my height boots. Was a fun fist VS costume and that coat was a bitch and there is A LOT of work into it and detail. The fraying and cuts took like a month and a lot of the detail probably will not show on camera. Will do a costume test video later.
