Step 1: What you'll need for the brain

The idea for this project sprung from the fact that I already had all these materials at home.

To make the exposed brain you'll need:
-Brain shaped Jello mold (I got mine from http://www.thinkgeek.com)
-Liquid latex
-Red paint
-Vaseline

Step 2: Make the brain

Coat the mold in vaseline. This will make removing the latex brain much easier.

Mix a few drops of red paint into some liquid latex to give it a pink colour. Remember that the latex will dry much darker.

Pour a small layer of latex into the mold. Slowly build up layers of latex until you you have the desired thickness for the brain prosthetic.

Allow the latex to dry completely. This will take a very long time. Be patient.

Step 3: Trim to fit

Remove the latex brain from the mold. A little bit of baby powder can help prevent the latex from sticking to itself while you pull it out.

Cut off the straggly edges and then trim the prosthetic until it fits comfortable on the side of your head.

This was very well done and took a considerable commitment on your part to cut your hair back... Excellent...
