Frank 1.0

Frank 1.0 - Donnie Darko - Frank
Wireframe, mesh, and Super Sculpey. I was in a major rush and made the entire costume in about 10 hours for Halloween last year, but things didn't work out. For one thing, by the time I got done with the mask, it was too big to fit in the oven (sculpey needs to be heat-cured)! I managed to break it in half, cure it, get it back together, paint it, and only THEN did I realize just how ridiculously heavy it was going to be. Genius! Now that I have more time and much better resources, I'll probably make a better (and lighter) version this year. If I have the time, I'm going to try and make his eye glow like in the movie.

Amazing work!

lol That is awesome ^^ Another option is model magic. Air dries, readilly available, and it's easy to work with. You can sand it down once it dries too.

Dood... Frank is awesome. I love the mask...you get so much props for making this.

Check out paperclay for your next attempt...it air dries, is sandable, and is very sturdy (I made wing/horns for my Freya hat with that and craftfoam/wire and had no issues even when I rammed into a wall a few times. x.x) AND is light weight.

he's like a freaky-scary monkey bunny! Nice, I hope you get this done in time for Halloween this year! ^_^

Ahhhhh!!!!! That bunny scares the crap out of me!! I think the main thing that scares me is the voice though..well, the combination of the visual and audio X_X. Nice job so far, Sculpy IS heavy..but you can really decrease the weight considerably by bulking it out with tin foil, and I think Sculpy bake and bend may be a little lighter + it's like 100 times more durable despite being difficult to work with (gets very sticky). I'm sure there are better ways though.
