Arrow Help! With costume!

VERY NEW... So I'm going to be Mia from Evil Dead for a con coming up a few months, I pretty much have mine figured out, I'm even going to wrap vines around my arms and legs!
BUT, we need help with my husband! He will be playing Eric, from Evil Dead.
You know the part where he gets shot with the nail gun? How would it be possible to replicate this for Scott, my husband? How could we make nails stick out from his arms??

PS: This is us! > http://oi40.tinypic.com/24xigt5.jpg
We kind of already look like both of them! Plus we're huge horror fans!

Please comment with advice.

Do you have reference pics of the costumes you're trying to make? Some of us may not be familiar with the characters.

Costume specialty stores may have ready made prosthetics you can use to create the look of having been stuck with a bunch of nails.

Thanks for answering mark!! Here are reference pictures for my costume, Mia:

And here are reference picture for my husbands costume, Eric:

(see the nails in his arm?) That was the best photo I could find of it, but in the movie you can clearly see them much better!

Also here's a reference clip... But don't watch if gore freaks you out.
