Everyone knows Halloween is a great opportunity to scare the crap out of your friends and look good doing it. My costume idea was inspired by the Marie Antoinette movie. I found a bunch of great “headless” costumes online that used the basic technique I wanted. Being a fan of zombie flicks, I took this inspiration to the next level, aiming for gory realism.
Blue sheet foam insulation If you’d rather carve, you can use this foam insulation from the hardware store and carve it with a hot wire
Wooden dowels or other piping
Plaster of Paris
Sealer and mold release agent for plaster mold I used Universal Mold Release, and Super Seal sealer
Urethane liquid flexible foam I cast the costume bust with FlexFoam-iT X liquid foam from smooth-on.com
