|This is the Crusnik version of my Artbook Abel Nightroad costume worn at Minamicon 15. |
The outfit is the same as my artbook with the extra additions of gravity defying hair, fangs, long claw like nails, and a double ended blood red scythe.
The hair was done using bucket loads of TRESemme Extra Hold salon Finish hair spary. Each section was sprayed then blow dried in place. Took about 15 mintues to style and then a further 10 mintues to set.
The scythe was made using a jelly bean clear plastic tube as a base. I then added small vertabrei cut from fun foam. Each one was glued slightly over the other to create an organic effect. In the ends where soft drink bottle tops so that the scythe could be transported into three parts. The blade heads that appeared at Minamicon 15 where temp ones. I ran out of fun foam. They were made from sheets of flexable plastic with foam added to create a 3D effect. The proper heads will be replacing them at a later date. The plan is with the proper heads is to continue the organic design that I had done in the central piece.
Complete (Posted 16th December 2009)
Although the scythe is still needing a rework I've decided that this is pretty mu7ch complete. The scythe will be repaired and reworked for the 80% Crusnik version which is now listed as a seperate costume as I'll be adding wings and red contacts.
