It was the cheapest unbleached muslin I could get at JoAnn Fabrics. I hung the completed gown from the garage ceiling and walked around it with cans of spray paint, brown, black, green, etc. Then took a paint brush and splattered red latex paint on the front for 'blood'.

That is a pretty cool costume! Did it take a long time to make it all?

Oh, I'd say probably 20 hours or more. I didn't sew the costume, used hot melt glue and hemmed the edges. Be careful on those stilts!

how much would I have to give for one of these costumes without the stilts? I already have 36" stilts but how much would it cost without the electronic eyes and such?also here's my current stilt costume...I'm on the right as you can tell

Very cool costume! Using a giant walking stick is a great idea, gives you extra stability! I sold mine on Ebay for $1300.
