8th December 2009: new gear for 2010? So.... I've commissioned a new coat and pair of trousers from a costume company out in China, called Cosplay365. Their X-Men style suits look pretty promising, so I'm quite certain they'll do a good job on HB's "leather" trousers. And I've given specs for the coat, so that should look alot better than my old one too. When it gets here, I'll probably do a little weathering to it... make it look old but well-loved.

I've also started making plans for my new Hellboy mask. I've decided I'm definitely gonna want to punch the facial hairs in individually, so that's gonna bring a whole new level of realism to the face. As well as the face that i want to design the mold with an interior face to match mine, so that when i put my head in the mask, my face will fit perfectly inside, and i'll be able to move the face in a more realistic manner.

12th November 2009: resculpt Ok, friends and Hellboy fans will be happy to hear that I'm planning to resculpt my mask for this suit, for a more accurate look. And the only thing better than the fact that I'm gonna be getting a lifecast made to do so, is that I'm gonna tape the ENTIRE sculpting process using timelapse software I downloaded. So not only will I get a nice lil souvenir of the time I spent working on the sculpt, but I'll be able to share the experience with all of you.

Now, I'm not planning to do this for a lil while, but I hope to have it ready for LFCC 2010, so time's a-wastin' and I have alot of work to do, lol.

I'm also reworking my Right Hand of Doom, replacing the inner workings and repainting the outside with (yes, new tool) my airbrush!

This is amazing! How did you do the mask? Or was it bought? It looks fantastic at any rate! I'm considering doing Hellboy in the future and this is the problem I'm having, his face/hair ^_^'

Thanks both of you. As for the mask, I sculpted and cast it myself, painted with coloured latex and the hair is glued on. The main part at the back is a scalped long hair wig, that I glued on and gave a quick topknot with some hairties. And the face fuzz is glued on with superglue by hand. It's a bit of a long and sticky process, but works. I'm hoping the next version I do will fit better and look better. Gonna try to actually punch the hair, like they do for movie masks.

Awesome Hellboy. You really looked the part. It was great to see in person and to hang with you guys whilst I was in my Nuada.

I really loved the make-up. Your group was awesome.
