Introduction: Davy Jones Costume

About: I've been making movies as a hobby for nearly 8 years now, and I've always enjoyed the fantastical and imaginative. I occasionally take on the challenge of trying to construct some recreations.

A Davy Jones costume I made in about 2 weeks for under $100.

A latex mask (made with the same method seen here) added onto clothes torn and aged, with lots of seashells hot glued onto them. Scrap pieces of cloth and clay added more details. Claw arm and peg leg made out of foam boards, oatmeal containers, and plaster strips. Hat made of a cheap foamy hat expanded with a yellow trim. Pipe made out of clay, sword made out of a yardstick.

    Yeah, that site's great. Next time, baby. I would have used some cream makeup to add other colors, but I didn't have any darker colors.

    This guy did a fantastic Davy Jones. He's crazy with oil paints and all that.

    Aww, that's really to bad. It's like cosplaying, except the whole city/state/country/world does it. :P

    Hey, what is that wood burning tool? I've seen it referenced in some other Instructables and I still don't know what it is.
