Long time lurker, first time poster. Halloween is a pretty serious hobby of mine; I just love making stuff. I've won prizes for Alien and Predator themed costumes, but this year I've turned my attention to a contrasting, but equally fanatic love of mine: Pixar. Specifically, I'm constructing a homemade Zurg costume for this All-Hallows-Eve
I'm at a pretty early stage of the build, so I'll keep updating this thread. Thanks for looking

Step 1: Make a wire frame of the head, based on as many pictures from as many angles as possible.
Step 2: Cover the frame in masking tape, which serves as a primer for papier mache.
Step 3: Papier mache the mask.
So with this in mind, I began Step 1. I made a very rough outline of Zurg's head (apologies for the bad quality phone-pictures, I've been very lazy - must start using a proper camera):

The problem was that my (real) eyes didn't line up with the eyes I had drawn on the mask (where I was going to cut out the eyeholes). It was quite worrying for a while, but I got around the problem by cutting out some of the wire foundation on the inside of the mask (the masking tape was holding it in place now). This allowed me to push my head further up the inside of the mask, matching up my eyes with the proposed eyeholes.
And with that, I began Step 3 (I usually do 3 layers of papier mache):

I was working on Zurg's gun, the Ion Blaster, simultaneously to constructing the head. Using the same method as the mask, I have gotten the three barrels of the blaster done so far. This was very frustrating as I initially miscalculated their length, which made life very difficult in shortening them. How and ever...
So that's pretty much where I am now. I hope to progress further this week, I'll post up whatever I get done. Thanks for reading

However, in the future, please try to do that in one post. Great job, anyway!!
