Hey guys. I thought I might see if I could find some help here for this... I'm not even sure this is the right website, seeing as how its all so geared towards anime, but hey, you guys are the costume people... anyway, I need some help making these...(the one on the right...(And the people of a weak constitution shouldn't click... GRAPHIC!!!1!!1))

I mainly need help on the actual crabhead and the split open ribcage. I have till April 24th to do this, and I already have a chicken wire frame made(mostly)in the shape of a crabhead, so that's not an issue, but the ribcage and covering the frame WITH something will be a little more difficult. Any suggestion are welcome, as long as they don't involve VAST amounts of money(homemade stuff and thrift store stuff would be much appreciated), and too much time.

Thanks a bunch,
Greth206

Since you already have the base, paper mache would probably be the way to go. Once dry, you would just paint it the desired colors.

The rib cage....that's VERY ambitious. The only ways I could think of would be for you to undergo some crazy airbrushing/painting on your chest
OR
you could do something like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vissago/440272915/in/photostream/ and build it out of an existing shirt.

Also, here's some good blood and guts stuff: http://www.fxsupply.com/bn_catalog/bn_blood.html
