Tiny Terminator Costume

tiny terminator costume 1

It’s hard to beat kids in costumes, and this miniature Terminator is fantastic. He’s the 11-year-old son of Replica Props Forum (RPF) user Beaker. He wanted to be Terminator for Halloween and also so he could meet Linda Hamilton in costume at a local convention. Beaker went all out and began the build by doing a lifecast of of his son’s head, chest, and belly in order to sculpt Terminator parts to fit him. He cast resin from the head mold so he had a surface to sculpt the ripped flesh onto and used Dragon Skin FX pro silicone for the skin (he also used it for the bullet holes on the jacket because it can be pulled off fabric without leaving residue).

How he made the metal parts on the face:

I made the metal parts by brushing into the mold two layers of EpoxAcoat then one layer of EpoxAmite with vale fiberglass.

Information on the paint job:

It was all painted using Psycho Paint, the ‘skin’ was permanently adhered down with Sil-Poxy

Beaker attached the facial pieces with Skin Tite, and his son wore the costume for seven hours – which is impressive.
