Halloween is just around the corner and for those creative types who aren’t satisfied with just showing up to a party as Harley Quinn or any other superhero, there’s plenty of other awesome Hollywood-inspired options to choose from. Might we suggest dressing up as a “Stranger Things” character, but better yet, the Demogorgon.
In the video below, courtesy of Ellimacs SFX and Vulture, you can learn how to create an epic mask that looks like the Upside Down monster from the hit Netflix series. All you need is: wire, masking tape, liquid latex, flour, red and black food coloring , white ellimorph plastic, red yarn, clear varnish and runny fake blood. (Intermediate crafting skills wouldn’t hurt either.)
This costume will definitely give you top points at any Halloween contest. Though the process may seem a bit long and difficult, the handy tutorial shows that it’s definitely worth the effort when you see the finished result.
