Halloween 2009

Halloween 2009 shots are still coming in--this one is from our newest F.O.A.M. member, David Wendkos!

Here's what David had to say about the custom-made costume: "I didn't really like the costumes I could find around on the internet, so I decided to make my own.

The top started as an UnderArmour top, which I had someone airbrush to add the scales. The blue hand is a latex surgical glove. The bottoms are green tights. I used iron-on velcro on it, then used yellow foam with sticky velcro to create the belt. (I want to come up with a better version before next time I wear it.)

The blond/gold hair is a wig and one of my least favorite parts of the outfit. I intend on finding a better one between now and next Halloween. Overall, though, it was fun to make."

It's a great suit--the scales and the blue hand two especially nice touches! Thanks for the pic David and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Great job on the suit! Wonder what the comments he got were like?

Great job on the suit. And the blue hand is a great touch. One recommentation: On the blue glove paint some wavy lines on it with a blue marker, darker than the blue on the glove, to give the illusion of the water hand. 2 or 3 wavy lines should suffice to give the water effect.
Again, very well made suit. Congratulations.

Nice one! That's one of the best Aqua-suits I have seen!
