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.

    Question 8 months ago on Introduction

    Hello, I enjoyed your video on the Davey Jones costume! I do this pirate event at a campground and wanted to add Davey Jones. The whole process makes sense but I didn't see how you made the pipe. Thats the one piece I need if you can share.

    thanks!!

    Wonderful! Loved the video and the no-sew adaptations! Attention to detail is amazing! Thank you for all the ideas! Two questions---1) how much latex did you need and 2) where do you buy it?

    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.

    It's like a pen that plugs into a wall and heats up an attachment at the tip.
