Frank West - Dead Rising


London MCM Expo October 2010

Lotta people wanted my picture :D




I chose to go as this guy because he's just such a...weird hero. A photojournalist WHO FIGHTS ZOMBIES?!? HELL YES! Another main reason was because of dead rising's famous servbot mask. This was great fun to plonk on unsuspecting victim's heads. Started getting the costume ready by doing a charity shop sweep. Got the leather jacket for only £15! Bargain :D As for the rest of the clothes, I already owned. Found the camera in an old drawer around the house.

Mask face

I cut the eyes and mouth out from paper. I used a black marker pen for the outline of the mouth; center of the eyes and outline of the eyes. I used red paint for the inside of the mouth. Finally super-glued these to the mask and ta-da! Came much better than I expected it to. :)

Painting the mask

When the mask was strong enough, I painted it with yellow and metallic silver.

Clothes and camera

Bought a leather jacket from a charity for £15. Looked around the house for other clothes and was successful. Found a good camera too.

Mask foundations

Used masking tape and card to make a frail cylinder. Used masking tape and carboard to make the top of the mask. Taped it all together and then used papier-mache to make it stronger because (obviously) masking tape and card alone is pretty weak.
