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.

This is a great image but I can't help from wondering how is he holding the cigarette? It looks like it's entering behind and above the teeth. Is this the only way you could mount it or is the angle playing with my eyes?

Why does this look like something from fifty shades of grey?

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!

Nice work! I too went as the Red Skull for Halloween. I like what you did with the skull mask.

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.

Thanks! I wanted to go for a more WWII military look, but I settled for the more modern version.
