Red Skull Costume by JasonCasteel Red Skull Costume by JasonCasteel
My halloween costume!

I repainted a latex skull mask red.. add a black suit and tie, gloves, cigarette holder, and a plastic box.. and voila: The Red Skull with the Cosmic Cube!

Note: the burning cigarette was added digitally.

Thanks! I got some adhesive (unfortunately I can't remember the name of it now) and sort of pinched the areas in the jaw/ear inward and glued it that way, just so it was a little more snug. The jawbone and cheekbone details sort of hide the pinched areas, so it worked out fairly well here. I hope that helps!

Yeah I used Model Masters acrylics. First I painted the entire mask with a dark red, and let it dry. Then I painted a lighter shade of red over it, so that you could still see the darker red in the recesses. I was actually amazed at how well it stuck to the latex. I've taken extra care not to stretch it too much when I put it on/take it off, and so far I haven't experienced any cracking. Hope this helps!

Thanks! I really like yours.. I would have liked to do more of a uniform, but I didn't have time to get one together.

How did you create the effect of the nose and ears?

It's all a latex mask, I just painted it red and make a small adjustment to the jaw line so it fit my head better.
