|Costume type:||Costumes for Groups|
This homemade costume for groups entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Luis and Krista, the 'Stranger Things' costume creators:
My oldest daughter was Eleven. My middle child (son) and youngest (daughter) were Demogorgons!
Demogorgons: I started out with a basic unitard with hood and white mask. To make the pedals i used wire hangers and masking tape. Added cotton it the middle of the petals and covered them in thickened liquid latex. Before doing so I made a billion and one teeth. I used polymorph plastic beads. Put them in the petals. Let dry. I taped the petals onto the mask and covered the mask in the same thickened liquid latex front and eventually the back of petals. Added some straps Bc these babies are HEAVY! Painted to make it more grungy. The bodies are carved out of foam. Put the unitards on mannequins. Used foam fast 74 spray glue the foam carvings. I hand cut the “muscles” only using scissors. Added more thickened liquid latex for gross look. Then fabric spray painted the entire bodies gray. Went in after with black fabric paint and cream to shawdow and highlight.
They are obsessed with Stranger Things! So this was a blast to make.
