Introduction: My Pyramid Head

My rendering of Pyramid Head from Silent hill.........I used ideas from the games as well as movies and added my own "tweaks".Spent about a week designing and making this costume. I Used 1 inch foam board, Mack Tack 2 way tape, Hot glue, Misc. plumbing parts, 1.5 inch rope, dust mask respirators,  1 and 3 quarter inch bolts and some plastic lath and shear cloth for the Pyramid. I used the form core to make pads inside so all I need to wear is a ball cap inside the helmet. Used some spray paint for color, starting with flat black and then I used anodized bronze and sprayed the whole thing. I used more flat black and a brush and just barely added on the bronze to make it look like old steel. The apron is shoe canvas(2 yards) stained with tea, cut and hap-hazardly cross stiched back together down through the middle. I also sew a belt ring on the inside to hold it up. The blood I just basically threw at the cloth while it was hung up outside. I did this 3 different time to layer. Shirt is just a "wife beater" covered in blood. Arms will be air brushed to look scarred and dirty. Would go shirtless and painted but its damn cold :) So the great knife is a 10 foot piece of 3 quarter inch cedar shaped, sanded, primed and painted bronze with some red at the end. I also dumped fake blood down the end and let it drip down he blade. Kinda hard to see here. I have a little piece of steel cut to attach at the end to give it that steel grinding sound.  I used black hockey tape for the handle grip and kinda cut it and gouged it to look old. My height comes from dry-wall stilts.

Hell, if you wouldn't mind making another one I'd be cool to buy one, depending on the price. I've never been good with crafts.

Sorry everyone for the late reply. I will be getting the pyramid head back in a few days. It's taken some punishment so I will be adding to the costume and will post pics of the inside and out. This years project will be the "nurse" outfit. I have some ideas!! Ill have the wife wear this one.

i like this one, the cedar is a great idea to keep the weight down, I was going to use a fence post in the spine to give the "hollow grind" sound. NIce idea on the stilts i was setting up to use buckets, but those will give more freedom of movement ( and I can use them for work on deployment) thanks for the post, can you include a pic of the inside of the head?
