Leatherface Texas Chainsaw Massacre Remake Costume


OK I get a billion requests to make these and I have wanted to make one for a long time now, so now it is time...This prototype may be for sale once done or I may keep it for myself and do another one to sell not sure yet. Gonna be CK!

Cutting the brown tarp which is the same material used in the movie Andrew Bryniarski himself told me. Judging by most of the shots in the movie it looks to be perfect! Adding the faux multi-layers at the bottom and top. Lots more to come!

Faux strap added to look like two longer ones tied together, or original one can be cut to raise the apron to adjust the height.

Working on the bracers made out of foam and leather material to give them some thickness yet still be flexible.

Easy on elastic which will be hidden, and faux laces so you don't have to worry about tying them and they will look tied.

Just about done and ready for weathering and blood!

sirbrad Monday 2/18/2013 at 07:55 PM | 100163
Apron sanded and frayed and adding thick grime and weathering now. As usual all details will be shown with outdoor pics and videos. Coming along great!

Kemper mask by A.M. Creations. Adding a PERFECT wavy wig I found and will be trimming it some.

Perfect shirt I found years ago green with stripes and textured. It is a 3XL so lots of room for the added bulk and santa belly! Not quite as dark as shown here, over-embellished due to low lighting. But only the top part, back, and sleeves will be seen mostly anyway.

sirbrad Tuesday 2/19/2013 at 11:54 PM | 100175
Oh yes...there will be blood.

sirbrad Wednesday 2/20/2013 at 07:59 AM | 100184
Better view of the neck. Will have outdoors pics of this as well later to show all the details

Tommy 2.0 will be repainting to match the lighter white/gray look in the movie. Might be some yellow undertones as well.

sirbrad Wednesday 2/20/2013 at 11:03 PM | 100187
Haircut coming along nicely.

OK time to repaint the Tommy 2.0 to get that white/gray look in the movie with dark highlights. Started with a white basecoat with a hint of gray and dry brushed it mostly and already liking the look! Will also help it be seen at night more once done Addison's old paint up looked like leather and was brown so making it more like the new one. Might also add some yellow tones not sure yet as this may be good enough once done. I also do not have an airbrush yet but will be getting one soon. But I am used to ung brushes a lot it is just harder to do especially once a mask is haired and stitched already which means I have to try and avoid every stitch or just go back and paint them black with a thin brush.

I don't want it too dark but will be making the crevices, lips, and eyes darker. I want it to be seen well at night. The one in the movie was not that dark in the behind scenes video and shows well in the dark lighting scenes. That is what I am going for. But first basecoat dry brush done!

Oh yeah starting to get pretty now! Added dark grey wash.

sirbrad Friday 2/22/2013 at 11:31 AM | 100198
Added another wash of dark brown and blacks and in the crevices. Now adding all the darker highlights of the eyes, lips, edges and high points, and the mask is now darker and dirtier. Wow not bad for my first Leatherface paint up with regular brushes! Can't wait to do more!

sirbrad Friday 2/22/2013 at 02:27 PM | 100199
Paint fully dry and slightly darker.

sirbrad Saturday 2/23/2013 at 01:45 AM | 100200
Sealed with permawet and 50% water so that it does not have too much shine just a slight one. Looks slightly darker indoors and lighter outdoors will be able see the details more outdoors.

sirbrad Saturday 2/23/2013 at 04:42 AM | 100201
OK it is all done, and I absolutely LOVE how it came it out! This time did costume test shots first and doing the life-zed next to show the detail outdoors. For reference I am 5'10" in shoes and 175 LBS muscular build. I wear a large shirt but this is a 3XL and I added two muscle suits and a Santa belly and it came out perfect! Lots more pics on my as it takes less time to upload and will have videos soon! I used my custom 74 chainsaw as I sold my remakes, and this is my personal saw that I made for all my costumes as I like how the yellow shows the blood and weathering.

sirbrad Saturday 2/23/2013 at 11:05 AM | 100204
Thanks a lot!

The debut of me in costume outdoors! Not just my life-zed figures. Video coming later finally opened my tripod lol. Might do sores on lips and add make-up to eyes for costume but probably not as I wear all my costumes at night mostly.

sirbrad Saturday 2/23/2013 at 04:09 PM | 100206
More videos one non HD for editing as I do not have an HD editor as the trial ran out, and two HD ones indoors.
sirbrad Sunday 2/24/2013 at 02:00 PM | 100216
Poseable hands I made out of foam, wire and CFX licone hands. Work great!

sirbrad Monday 2/25/2013 at 07:45 AM | 100219
Life-zed done and is SUPER AWESOME!! Really creepy seeing that in person with that undermask! Sucks my mannequin leg broke out the fiberglass from so much use so now I got to lean it on something. But my other bigger one is still good. Last one with flash.

Some of the publicity photos look like burlap so trying one of those for fun. So far so good!

sirbrad Wednesday 2/27/2013 at 08:33 AM | 100248
Thick grime added and 2 costs of weathering so far, looking better than the tarp with that lighter foundation and no restence to chemicals. Only downde is it is also messy to cut and fray and irritates the hands and tough to wear gloves and work on find details. But I will succeed!

Leatherface in the mofo house! MY house lol. I can't believe I created that! I should be used to them by now after so many life-zed figures but each one is still so awesome to see once done.

sirbrad Friday 3/01/2013 at 11:45 PM | 100283
Kemper wanted in on the action.
