this mask was the first experience in sculpting and casting
anything and it gave me confidence when it came to sculpting
and casting the Beast.
I sculpted the mask using WED clay and molded it in silicone.
Using the silicone mold in a plaster mothermold shell I
cast the mask in Smooth-Cast 300. The mask had some issues
that needed to be cut anyway, sanded and filled out with
plastic putty after being cast but it turned out great.
After some searching, I managed to find a white Levi jean
jacket in the same style from the film. I dyed it grey with
RIT dye. After removing the sleeves I roughed up the jacket
to give it that worn in look. I bought an oversized wihite
shirt and modified it to more closely resemble the shirt
he wwears in the film with a grey tank top underneath. The
sweat pants are just plain old sweat pants. The boots are
just regular boots and I doubt they are movie accurate.
I think he probably wears some sort of high tops in the
film but I could never get a good screencap showing much
detail. The gloves are as accurate as I could find, premade
with perforations in it just as in the film and fingerless.
Besides the mask, one of the biggest parts of this costume
was making the golf bag. I found an old stovepipe golf bag
on e-bay but it was very old and brittle. I removed the
old canvas and used the base of the bag to build a new one
with new canvas and a cheap belt strap I bought at Goodwill.
The baseball bats I also purchased at Goodwill but later
replaced them with plastic painted bats for convention safety
purposes. The hocket stick is a cut down and weathered hockey
