WARNING - if the idea of being sewn Hole-To-Hole is utterly horrifying, look away! But it was Tom Six's idea, not mine. He's the one who made the movie. And as I hear it, The Human Centipede 2, (Second Sequence), was just banned in the UK. Will it make it to the USA? I don't know. But I love the idea of a new doll challenge. Hahah.
LET THE SURGERY COMMENCE! Ps, LOL @ the Song in the video. "Slow" by Kylie Minogue.
Step 1: What You Need!
tan/skin colored acrylic paint
clear gloss varnish
sander/dremel/not a vibro-tool
sharpies to dye their hair
Step 2: Choose Your Dolls!
What kind of dolls to use? My advice is to use dolls bigger than these, because when you fold them up and melt them, they are so compressed that there isn't much space to work with. But you also have to take into consideration - how will they look with bent knees? Will this work? Etc. Make sure to do a lot of visualizing.
Step 3: Off With Their Heads!
So, cut necks off, angle them up as much as you can, if you're lucky and you have a Dremel, this should be easy. But if you're like me, and your dad says "yeah, I have a Dremel" and gives you an inheritance from your grandma of a thing called a "Vibro-Tool", then you are shit-outta-luck because this will take you hours. :) And it will scare the crap out of you when you turn it on.
Anyways, you're going to need to sand the neck so that it's smooth and angled upwards.
Step 4: They Need KNEES
Note: Some plastics will behave differently when being burned. One of these dolls burned black! Not just melting...but...frying? I don't know, I've never seen this plastic reaction in all my years of melting. :)
Step 5: I Think They Need Ankles.
Their ankles kinda worked and kinda didn't. But it was a cool idea. I think.
Step 6: Face Painting!
Paint those triangular shapes onto the two back-dolls. Your front-guy won't be sewn to anyone. Choose a skin-tone color or make your own with brown and white. Maybe layer it a couple times to be safe. :)
Step 7: Bloodlines.
Step 8: Optional Mouths
Step 9: Cut Your Staples!
This is crazy, because......you need to bend the pin open, use pliers and snip the sharp end off, have it shoot into your palm, startle you with a little pain, set it aside, then keep clipping tiny segments that behave in the same manner and shoot into your palms. The key is to cup the pins and pliers when you clip them, so you don't lose those pieces. And yet, it's so uncool to do at the same time.
Do this to 6-8 mini safety pins and you will have a medical-kit worth of surgery tools. And you will be a stronger person for withstanding the constant startles and pricks.
Step 10: Stitches!
The key is to space them evenly and to kind of stagger them so they aren't perfect. Continue to do this in segments on all sides of the triangle flaps for the two dolls. The 3rd guy is the lucky one because he gets shotgun.
Step 11: Apply a Clear Coat.
Step 12: ON With Their Heads!
For the rotating head, wood burn a thin hole into the back, at an angle, fill with E6000 glue, put some glue on the tack itself, then let them sit for a lil bit, then put the pin in the hole, not all the way. Leave overnight and let them adhere to each other. Then the next day, stretch the doll head over the tack head with great difficulty until you've made it work, without ripping the tack out. Success!
Alternate head attaching, just lay lots of E6000 glue where you want the head attached, and then do the same for the underside of the head, around the hole. After almost a minute, place them together and hold them there for a while. You don't want to let it go, because it needs some time to get the initial bond, in your hand. Then, after a minute or two of holding, you can set that one down to rest for a day and move onto the next doll, repeating the process. :)
Step 13: Pat Yourself on the Back.
Next challenge, in what order to apply bandages!?
Step 14: Knee Bandages.
Fold the fabric around the knee and hand sew it in place, tie knots, cut excess fabric and threads. Repeat for all dolls.
Step 15: Neck Bandages.
In the movie, all the people had diapers on and the diaper extended to the jointed chick's neck to hold her in place. But if you think about it...what are the chances that the diapers had perfect holes in them for ... hole-to hole? I think it was a theatrical thing. They needed to cover the "grossness" so the idea was implied. I opted to go with waist-to-neck slings. For 2 reasons. ONE, there wasn't enough space to make diapers because these things are so small and the space would be so cluttered that it would look bad. You have to bring your designer-self into this! ;P
Second reason - I think Tom Six would have wanted it this way. Hahah.
Cut a couple LONG thin strips of fabric, sew them into place around the waist and then take the flaps and sew them into place around the attached victim. Hand sew into place. Tie knots, cut excess threads and fabric. Repeat for the second joint and you're good!
Step 16: FINISHED!
Personally, I just got my own workspace, and I have this shelf on the top and I put it up there like a cute little freakish trophy. I made my own DOLL! It was fun, definitely a challenge, and it was entertaining to scare my mom with. She said it was disgusting, but also thought it was kinda cute. My husband said that he loved me and that there aren't many wives out there who would make this. LOL.
Hope you guys enjoy! PS, Don't be scared of me. :(
Optional - Attaching faces to...preceding bodies, Bloody splotches on the bandages, and diapers. :) (I like the pure look, without blood, I like the idea of omitting the diapers, and I like them kinetic, so I didn't attach the mouths. :) If they had lips...maybe I would have.
