This costume was created for a haunted house which I completely built and designed for about 2 months from Sept - Oct 2011. It was a 10,000 square-foot haunted house in the basement of a Holiday Inn. This costume was intended for the Circus Area of the haunted house which included a Fun House, a Circus, and a Freakshow area.
The costume itself was inherited from a previous year where the outfit had been used on a mannequin. I covered the front in a mix of stage blood and acrylic medium, then put on the bow tie, socks, Doc Martens, did the makeup and wig as well as long-fingered gloves which I painted with the stage blood-acrylic medium mixture.
This outfit had numerous props, which were used at various points during the haunted house.
Rubber chicken was bought from Value Village and I applied the mix of acrylic medium and stage blood to it to have it permanently covered in blood.
The mix of acrylic medium and stage blood was also applied to a pink and white children's umbrella from Value Village. I then bought some small key-chain sized plushes/stuffed animals which I tied with fishing line to the ends of the umbrella so that they hung from the ends of it.
Weapons I chased people in the haunted house with were a plastic Meat Cleaver from Value Village that I painted to look more realistic and added blood to. I eventually passed the cleaver to someone else in the haunted house when I upgraded to a Chainsaw prop from Superstore that had a rotating blade and made chainsaw sound effects. At the end of the haunted house I would jump out at unsuspecting people with the chainsaw.
The last prop was a fake head that had been used in Scare House the year before. I carved foam out of the head to hollow it out, then I added a clown nose from Value Village and a $1 purple wig. I painted it with clown makeup in acrylic paints and added a wire handle so that I could use it as a make-shift trick-or-treat basket. I ended up using it to carry my things because the clown outfit has no pockets (ie: camera, phone, wallet, keys, etc.)
