Step 1: Head

Make a mask by sculpting than casting it with plaster of Paris

Step 2: Full Head

Put liquid latex in the mould and than peel it out and paint your mask than get a long wig and a grey top hat

Step 3: The Hat Box It's Self

The hat box is fairly simple to make its made of foam and fabric here's a pick of the blue prints and the hat box should be roughly the size of your torso

Step 4: Cape

The cape has to be big BIG!! make the collar really big and the cape should match the tuxito

Step 5: Tuxito

I bought a tux from a costume shop because I'm not the best at making cloths

Step 6: Put It on and Haunt Your Streets!!

Put it on and haunt your streets!! Be shure to cover your skin in white makeup!! Now see my updated version below!!! Thanks!!

    looks good and pretty close to the original prop! I might use this for my Halloween costume

    This sure does look creepy. Great costume, thanks for sharing! I wonder, would it be possibly to obtain an actually hat box so you could actually use it to carry stuff in it?

    Also, I love your facehugger phone - did you make that yourself?
