These costumes are inspired by Monster High, a series and doll line that I absolutely LOVE! I wanted to do something different than the normal outfits they wear so I ended up designing fearleading uniforms and a casketball uniform for Deuce’s character :D I designed everything from scratch and even hand screened all the trim, binding and fabric for Deuce’s hat. I had never modified a wig before this project so that was a HUGE accomplishment. I made it stable enough that it hasn’t changed since I first put it on! For my Frankie Stein makeup I did the f/x makeup from scratch, actually building a prosthetic on my face and then using a sewing needle to stitch through it.
I’m here as Frankie Stein and my lovely man is dressed as Deuce Gorgon.
