This homemade costume for men entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Kirk, the 'Hellraiser: Pinhead' costume creator:

I created this costume utilizing a men's leather jacket and deconstructing it. I also purchased pleather. 1/2" thick foam padding to create the umpire style in the front. The skirt is a separate drapery material in a fan style for fullness. The gloves are 2 leather gloves cut accordingly and stitched into wrist. The weapons are foam and painted with orange and brown for a rusty look. The pins are made from plastic q-tips, ends cut off, melted with a candle and pushed on a hard surface to create nail heads. Spray painted silver. The makeup is a 50-50% mix of liquid latex and white acrylic paint. The nails were attached by dipping the end of the nail in latex and applying a dab of latex on my head. when it started to cure, stick them on.

Pinhead is my hero. Dressed up as him when I was 18. Didn't look nearly as good as yours. Great job!
