zombombie's 2011 Costume

Postby zombombie » Tue Oct 04, 2011 6:27 am

So I got a proper start on my costume last night! It's taken me a long time to get started this year - who'd have thought planning a wedding would take up so much time?! :roll:

I'll post some teaser pics tonight, but this year is definitely on a budget. However, thanks to some nifty recycling of old material and props, and a free gift from a comic shop I should still have a pretty good costume. I hope... Those of you that read comics will hopefully know what I am this year ;)

Bring on the teasers EZ, i'm useless with comics but i'll give it a go.
The best costumes can sometimes be ones you've russled up from bits and bobs.

I'll be honest, that hasn't come out that well, it's not yellow on black...it's silver. I might put more teasers up later :wink:

So I thought I'd let you guys know, I'm going as a Black Lantern from the Green Lantern books, they're zombies with power rings which have re-animated their corpses. They look like this:

Image

Image

So you can look how you like really, so my costume will be this customised black shirt:

Image

I'll also be wearing a black domino mask, and a Black Lantern power ring (which was the free gift from the comic shop!).

I also made a Black Lantern power battery, which was the prop that led to my minor injury :lol:

It should look like this (The ring in this pic is the one I'll be wearing though I've also customised mine a little too!):

Image

So my prop started as some plant pots and a "float away" football:

Image

Image

Image

Now unfortunately with all the injuring I fell behind on my progress photos. So this is my power battery finished

Image

Image

Image

So I'm pretty proud with how the power battery came out and I'm hoping that everything combined will make for a pretty good costume :D

Hope you like, thanks for looking!

The Blackest Night falls from the skies. ,
The darkness grows as all light dies,
We crave your hearts and your demise,
By my black hand, the dead shall rise!

That's great and really clever. Look forward to seeing you ready to part-ee.

Great idea for a costume, not obvious which is always good. I love the lantern, I would never of thought to use plant pots and footballs. The finished article all put together will be super. Will you be having a zombie face? You must have a zombie face! :)
