Balsac the jaws of death


Last Updated: 11-03-2017

I'm such a fan of the band Gwar that I made one of their costumes. This costume is of the band's rhythm guitarist, Balsac the jaws of death.

The jaw headress I made from black posterboard, duct tape, prongs to allow the jaws to move and a pvc pipe to help the jaws stay in shape. The horns were from a viking helmet from a Halloween store, so I took them off the helmet and hot glued them to the jaws. The wig is a dreadlock wig from a Halloween store. I also included baby rubber bands into the dreads to keep them intact. The wig is attached to the top of the headress using prongs

The shoulderpads I found on ebay. They're youth football pads with spikes on the shoulders. From the looks of them, they look like they were made from a mix of newspapers, paper machee or a plaster material, duct tape and coathanger pieces. The fur, I added. It's just a shag rug cut to shape and spraypainted black

The shorts are just gym shorts you can find anywhere. The character normally wears a black thong, which I'm sure would not be a pretty sight to see for others to see. I might consider wearing black briefs for the costume but only for photoshoots.

The digitigrade stilts were made from wood, metal braces, pvc pipe parts, blue camping foam, a pair of old combat boots, bungee cords, velcro, zip ties and light brown fur fabric from Joanns
