Bast Halloween Costume: Anubis by bastblack Bast Halloween Costume: Anubis by bastblack
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. ;)

Materials used:

Black Velvet
Metallic Gold fabric
Fusible Webbing
Beading wire
Spray glue
Plastic canvas
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.

I can't see the timestamps on these posts, so if this is old, many pardons. Here is my contribution for Halloween 2012, and YES the dark lady Bastet is in progress, I should have her complete this week. :-)

See the full build process on Instructables.

I'm "bustin' " a little bit, and so happy to share, I have been far out of touch with my creativity for too long and haven't done anything like this in over 20 years. Reconnecting with my creativity is like discovering an old friend. . . . hopefully the process will help someone in discovering their own muse. Enjoy.

Everything black is black velvet. Only the gold the inner ear is a different fabric.

Wow! God job in this! A friend of mine and me did up our first kimonos for Halloween. she was an older Rin, and I was Kikyo. The funny part was that when she took my picture, with me glaring at the camera as Kikyo would, I ended up with a bad case of red eye...Talk about an omen, huh? Well, sounds like ya had fun :clap:

That's awesome! Anubis is great... He's definitely one of my favourite Egyptian gods. (Right after Ma'at, who is apparently his daughter. wtf?) Lovely job! =D

Ooo, Ma'at is one of my favorites too! :D
The stories I've heard about her is she was formed when the universe was formed (she as "balance", order out of chaos), but also that's she's Thoth's wife. I've never heard of as being Anubis' daughter, but they do make a team of sorts. She is the feather which heart is weighed against, and Anubis does the wieghing to determine who's led a good or evil life.

Yeah, I've heard the Thoth's wife thing... But I only found the Anubis' daughter thing in one place, and I can't for the life of me remember what it was. Hm. It's a pity the Egyptians didn't draw her more... *sigh* She's so cool.

Awhile back, I was on a Ma'at, Seth, and Anubis art collection phase. Anubis is the easiest to find, but imho, Seth was the hardest. There's more Ma'at art from AE than you might think.

My favorite is the Beeswax sculpture of Ramesses kissing Ma'at (found in KV4?). There is nothing else like it in Egytpian art, imho. It's surprising intimate and natural looking for Egyptian art, imho.

Ooooooo..... I'll have to go find that. You's think at an art college *someone* is bound to have it!

But pretty much any of the lesser-known gods are hard to find collectibles of. Most places have Bastet, Anubis, Ra/Re, sometimes Hathor, and the occasional Thoth. I must just be looking in the wrong places.

That is amazing!!! You've got the knack for costuming, it seems. I'm jealous. I've been doing my own costumes for years, but I never tried something like yours. I did do the legwork and loincloth on Kaos's Balzac costume. You can see it in my scraps.
Really fantastic work!!!
Cheers!

HI, thanks for asking. I had few pictures from last year that turned out good. So I'm thinking about pulling it out, ironing it and retaking some photos. Sound good? :)

I have a few funny shots in my scraps section. You can see them here:

No, no! It's a real looking fake nose! It's plastic. I got it through an online taxidermy store. It's a nice touch, imho.
