Last year I did Inuyasha and won Best Costume. (Weee!)
So how do I follow that up? *feels the pressure*
In a word, Anubis!
I'm a big Ancient Egypt fan, and Anubis is one of my favorites.
I spent the past 3 weeks building am Anubis mask based on the Anubis effigy in Tut's tomb. It wasn't easy because I had to invent my own pattern from scratch, which basically means alot of trail and error. The mask under went 5 versions. The one pictured here is number 5.
Matt (aka "The Beer Fairy") modeling the mask for me infront of the Mummy post with Brendon Fraiser. Heeh heeh.
Metallic Gold fabric
Taxidermy Coyote nose
and lots and lots of all purpose black thread
I think the mask turned out pretty well for my first attempt doing anything like this. I won Scarest Costume this year for The Egyptian God of Dead. Isn't that cool? I guess people thought Anpu was scary. Must be the ears, right?
I'm still not 100% with the ears (Grr! Doing the ears was hard!), but at least I got it done in time for Halloween.
Halloween is so much fun. Now I need some sleep, badly. I pulled an allnighter to get the mask done last night. Wheeow.
p.s. The rest of the Egyptian Outfit is not pictured. I recycled that outfit from a previous Egyptian costume I made. I have 2 bead collars (one gold, and one gold-blue-green), an gold linen-ish outter dress, black under dress, black tights, long black velvet gloves, black Egyptian styled wig, and gold rope for a belt.
