Silent Hill 3’s Closer Monster Costume

The Closer pops up throughout Silent Hill 3, and like the other monsters in the game, it’s terrifying and has a wacky design. Replica Prop Forums (RPF) member Egon Spengler spent about 3.5 years developing his Closer costume, and it looks terrifying. Job well done there. He used chicken wire, insulation tubing, expanding foam, and more for the build. Here’s what he did with the head and shoulders:

I took my Motocross chest/shoulder armor from a previous costume and filled it’s interior with expanding foam while it was on a duct tape torso of myself. Some cotton batting I used to fill the space up inside the shoulders got stuck in the expanding foam, but it’s not big deal. Using more expanding foam on top of the shoulders I built up a neck and eventually the head, all as one piece.

I wasn’t happy with the lack of movement that the solid neck and head combo caused, so I sliced off those and restarted. I purchased a hard hat and some chicken wire from Home Depot.

After shaping the chicken wire into the form needed for the head, I attached the hard hat to the foam and proceeded to cover the wire in expanding foam. After it was dry and solid, I removed the hard hat from the form so I could reattach it later with heavy steel gauge wire.
