Not So Ferocious Beast Cosplay

Beast costume 1

The family that comes up with themed costumes for Halloween stays together. Instructables user ctwachowski’s family decided to dress as characters from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast with his son as the Beast. The finished costume isn’t quite like any other Beast costume I’ve seen either. The build started with a sketch on a sheet of plywood, and then ctwachowski welded together a framework from fence wire. He makes it sound so simple. Next, he:

…sculpted the face out of pink foam and attached it to the framework. Next was cardboard and tape to fill in the openings. And finally spray foam to sculpt the hair.

After I was happy with the hair I started painting the face. I was really going for the cartoon look due to my son’s age. Hopefully it turns out that way.

I figured I’d just paint the shirt and vest to save time and give contrast to the body fabric wise. I used Eva foam for the vest and started putting the blue costume silk on to make the coat.
