Original Light-up Latex Monster Design

latex light up monster

Instructables user eternalblisked puts a lot of work into his Halloween costumes. He plans far in advance and gathers cheap building materials – including household objects – throughout the year. He comes up with original designs, and this monster creation makes an impression. It took him about 36 hours to make the costume from a fake fur coat, the tops of soda bottles, a shower hose, liquid latex, LED light cubes, and a few other materials. The light cells you see were made from LED light cubes (he got them at the Halloween store) and the soda bottles. He explains:

I used the halved soda bottles and found clamp hooks at a hardware store that fit perfectly around the perimeter of the bottle top. Secure the shower hose into the bottle top and hot glue. Around the base of the halved bottle, I completely lined it with velcro. I then created cardboard pieces with the other side of the velcro and circular red cut lighting gels. I made three sets of these. IMPORTANT: the velcro made it so if I had to replace an LED light bulb I would simply be able to open up the holding cell to replace.

He painted on 7-10 layers of liquid latex on his face and started adding on the light cells, securing the edges with more latex.
