Dead Master Costume from Black Rock Shooter

dead master costume

Instructables user Partybot is skilled with foam and costume design and recently received commission from a customer for a Dead Master costume. The character is the antagonist in the manga series Black Rock Shooter. Partybot made everything from the dress to the wings to the scythe. Here’s how he made the scythe:

The scythe was fabricated from pink board owens corning foam. It was sculpted using hot wire tools, sealed with latex paint, and accented with neon green acrylic paint. The staff was made from PVC that was heated with a heat gun to achieve the appropriate bends. The staff portion was wrapped in EVA foam and sculpted.

Process for making the horns:

The horns were made by taking a headband and drilling holes for mounting. Next PEX tubing had thick wire inserted to allow them to hold their shape. The PEX tubing was ziptied to the headband for stability. The PEX was then sandwiched between two layers of EVA foam rubber and sculpted with razor blades and a dremel. Tule was hot glued to the back for the veil.
