Half life cosplay

My brother's planning on going as a headcrab zombie for the upcoming Alcon but he's a perfectionist ( he gets it from me X() and wants it as close to the real thing as posible.



He needs help with the stomach since its opened up with the insides showing and teeth/ribs. Then he wants the headcrab itself ( the "chicken" on his head) to go over his face but needs to be able to see out of it, else he'll be a very clumsy zombie.

He has an idea for the elongated fingers where he's either going to by those witch's fingers props and re-paint them or papermache something up.

Here is a slew of headcrab patterns he can use. I'd say make it out of cardstock, then papermache over it. If you texture it a bit darker and kind of mottled around the legs, you might be able to sneak in some gauze-covered eyeholes. You might also be able to place eyeholes between the little fangy legs.

A guy on flickr made 3D guts, which could give y'all some ideas. There's probably a slew of Halloween props/chest pieces you can modify.

Lol, yup. I actually started HL2 *after* I read Concerned. Whenever I see Male_07 I think, "Hey, Gordon Frohman! Do something funny!" Alas, no wacky hijinks ever ensue. And then a headcrab tries to eat my face. The end.

Dont take offense but there is already a thread named half life cosplay :http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=211968 i dont think mods like threads that are named the same thing, especially when there only needs to be one ;] Id recommend merging the two together.

We just made a new sub-forum where you can make all the Half-Life threads you want, so there's no need to merge anything... but there's also no need to bump up a 2+ year old thread! Closed!
