This costume is a nice effective quicky if youve left it too late for Halloween.
I hope you enjoy, this is only my 2nd instructible and any constructive critism is welcome.
Step 1: Clothing
I put the dress on and marked on front and back where I want my spike coming through. (as its a wrap dress I had to mark the inner front layer too.)
Once youve marked it, take it off and snip a hole the same circumference as your spike.
I used pinking shears because I happen to have them but you can just make a ragged cut.
Then I mixed some paint. I've used red and black acrylic (much more red than black)
I used this paint around the holes an added some finger streaks and mud etc because my spiked person happens to be a zombie.
Step 2: The Spike(s)
I cut my tube in two, one bit about 8 inches the other about 5 inches. I then snipped around the bottom and fanned it out so that the tubes would stand on their own.
I cut two ovals from card and stuck the fanned out base of the tube to each oval.
