Go to the Sea with This Pirates of the Caribbean Davy Jones Costume

The design of Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean is striking. Stan Winston School forum user Todd Davis recently tackled the monstrous build and made it from scratch. Aside from the costume portion, which is covered in barnacles and other sorts of embellishments and requires a lot of sculpting and casting, Todd also made the face, tentacles, and claw hands. He says:

I started by taking a lifecast of my own face and hand, then sculpted the character on as a prosthetic to be cast in silicone.

The tentacles were sculpted and molded separately with matching washers on the end to ensure a perfect fit.

The face, hand and tentacles were all cast in a gel filled silicone to achieve a squishy feel with a tough skin, then all painted with a silicone paint thinned down with Naptha.

I sculpted/molded the claw and leg separately as well and cast them in latex filled with foam then painted them with acrylics.
