DIY Jack Skellington Mask Nightmare Before Christmas (How To)

hi,i'm justin and today i'm going to show,you how i made my,jack skeleton costume hope you enjoy,to get the overall shape of jack,skeleton's head i used a beach ball from,the dollar store and paper mached over,it was some homemade paper mache mix,with flour glue and water and some,shredded up newspaper,after the ball was completely dry it was,time to do another layer,i believe i did three layers in total,and you want to let that dry,completely day in between after the,layers of paper and shay are dry i,traced on jack's face so that i had,something to go off of when i was,sculpting the facial features,i wanted to give a shout out at this,point to the inspiration from this i saw,it on another youtube channel his name,was chris chilebeck,and he did a really good video on how he,made the jack skeleton masks,and how he actually produces multiple of,these from one casting,so go check it out i'll have it linked,below once you had a rough layout of how,the face is supposed to look i use,model magic air dry clay this is a,really lightweight clay that gives you a,lot of working time,i believe it takes a good 48 hours to,completely dry,so you have a lot of time to work with,it until you are happy with the result,you got on the facial features,i actually reinflated the beach ball,inside of it at this step to keep the,mask,rigid while i was working with it with,all that clay we'll go ahead and make it,a lot harder later on,once all the features are complete,as you can see from the video i did,mainly just use my fingers to shape,the eyebrows the nose and the eyes but,for the teeth i wanted something more,defined so i did use a couple of,sculpting tools i had lying around,after this step i did cut the eyeballs,out i cut out the eyes,and a little hole in the mouth so i can,breathe or,stick a straw through later on so i can,have a couple drinks,after all the clay was sculpted and,dried i did one last layer of paper,mache over the whole mask,this was done with paper towel i wanted,the texture,to grip onto the spackle that i'm going,to use later,to smooth out the whole skull,now comes the fun part i really feel,like a chemist whenever i work on,with epoxy so this is a poron epoxy used,for table tops,bar tops stuff like that i used it for,the interior of the mask,to really solidify that paper mache,because without this the thing would,probably fall apart,this really makes it rigid and hard,so it's going to last you a lifetime i,did put in some strips of,fiberglass but i really don't think it,was needed i think you could do this,without the fiberglass with just doing,the epoxy and it would work just fine,i just did a couple of strips by the,opening because i was afraid it was,going to rip,from all of the taking on and off but so,far,it's done great,once the inside epoxy was dry it was,time to smooth out the skull,so i used this pink spackle that it's,normally meant for walls for filling,holes it goes on pink and then dries,white,i smooth this on the whole skull with,a pair of gloves and a little bit of,water so have a cup of water with you,and just spread it over the entire thing,smoothing it out as if you were,putting icing on a cake,this step does require several layers if,you really want a smooth finish so,put it on the whole school wait for it,to dry and then sand smooth,and then go back with another layer of,the pink stuff to,fill in all of the holes or any of the,rough spots that you might have,sand again and repeat until you have a,surface that you're satisfied with,this part of the process is really,important because you want to make it,as perfect as you're comfortable with,because this,is the last part where you can make,changes after this we pour on epoxy and,it seals the skull,in forever no changes are made after,that because you can't really sand epoxy,too well,i did use the end of a flathead,screwdriver to define the teeth and make,sure no spackle got into those details,after the final sanding we moved on to,the most satisfying part for me,was putting the epoxy on the outside of,the skull this was getting close to the,finish line,so this is pour on epoxy i used a brush,to spread it out and make sure it got,all,in the details of the mask after this i,followed it up with a lighter,after i had a little bit of time to sit,and you take the lighter and get rid of,any air bubbles that may have formed on,the surface,turn out so smooth,it's time to paint,as you can see after the epoxy dries the,helmet,is completely solid it is rock hard and,it is time for paint so the first layer,is sandable primer,to get rid of any small imperfections,that the mask may still have,followed up with another light sanding,this is to get rid of any bumps,any imperfections in the mask before the,final,spray paint of pure white,i then did three or four coats of the,pure white i think i used the whole can,on the mask i just wanted to make sure,it was,all covered and it was a pure white i,wanted this thing to glow from afar,after the white was dry it was time for,the detail painting so all the black,outlines for the teeth,as well as the inner eye circles and the,nostrils you want to make sure you do,the inner eyes so that you have a clean,crisp,line after that i glued in some tore up,nylon to cover the eyes make sure you,couldn't see,into the eye holes and see me behind the,mask and that i could still,see out not well but good enough to not,fall over anything,i did not film the making of the suit,portion it was just a goodwill suit that,i found and i painted some white lines,on,as well as the bat tie was made out of,some,air dry clay that we used earlier on,painted to look like a bat,and some felt fabric as the bow tie,i hope you enjoyed this build i had a,lot of fun with it it was a huge hit,last halloween,and if you really enjoyed this content,feel free to subscribe,like share with your friends and try to,make it yourself i'd love to see,other projects done hope you enjoy,no i can

DIY JACK SKELLINGTON COSTUME PAPER MACHE HEAD || Nightmare Before Christmas

DIY JACK SKELLINGTON COSTUME PAPER MACHE HEAD || Nightmare Before Christmas

this thing looks so good on it just like,it looks so good,hello beautiful friends my name is Katie,and in today's video if you haven't,guessed we are making this gigantic Jack,Skellington head this thing is perfect,if you want to make a ridiculous,impression at anywhere where this would,be a great place to wear like a,comic-con or a Halloween party or,whatever because literally it you put it,on to start this project off I wanted,the head to be really big to make a,really ridiculous impression so I bought,already six inch round balloons off of,Amazon which I'll leave a link below and,then I just blew the balloon up and I,actually duct-taped the bottom of the,balloon so that way none of the air,would come out while I was making it,next I'm gonna go grab some newspaper,and I'm just going to tear it into long,strips this is what we're gonna use for,our paper mache you want to make sure,that the strips are not super thick,because when your paper mache something,that is round if they're super wide,they're gonna leave like crinkles in the,middle which won't smooth out very well,so for the next step in paper mache I,always use flour and water and the way I,like to make my mixture is I just add,some flour and then water and I want it,to be a little bit runny but I,definitely do not want it to be chunky,because otherwise it's just gonna be way,way way too thick and then you're going,to dip your newspaper into your new glue,you're just gonna go all the way around,this balloon and yes this process,definitely takes forever cuz it's super,sticky and super messy you're gonna want,to do one whole coat all the way around,making sure that everything is going,kind of in one direction and then you're,going to go the other way around it,going in the opposite direction so that,way your newspaper is strong and has a,lot to stick to I did three layers of,newspaper all the way around the balloon,this definitely depends on your personal,preference,I noticed in some areas mine was a,little weaker and I probably would have,loved it to be it really depends if you,are gonna put this on a child who might,drop it it might be hard on it maybe go,for a couple more layers,I knew that myself or an adult was gonna,be using it so I figured three layers,was okay you want to allow a lot of,drying time on this project because if,you don't it will end up cracking or on,the other side it'll end up just kind of,never drying and staying in a weird,state of just being moist so definitely,make sure it is dry this typically takes,honestly about at least 24 hours it,might take a couple days maybe a week so,that is why this project took me forever,so after it is completely dry and you,can see how much lighter it is now that,it's dried I am just cutting out kind of,a stencil of what I want his eye shape,to look like out of paper and then I'm,going to lay this down and I'm just,going to draw around it with a black,sharpie to make sure that I have his eye,placement correct and now here's the,part that ended up setting me back about,a year on this project I knew that I,wanted to give him a nice big furrowed,brow to really accentuate the fact that,he's a skeleton and to accentuate his,bones and I found this clay at Michaels,and I thought okay you know it air dries,it'll be perfect this stuff was so hard,to work with you'll see I like try and,put it on there and then I end up just,ripping it off because it just wasn't,working at all I have no idea how to,make this type of clay work but I can,tell you I spent a lot of hours trying,desperately hard to put this on and then,ripping it off and it just not didn't,work at all so you can see it's just an,absolutely lumpy mess and even with,using the sponges and using water it,just oh man it's bad it looks awful it,was just not at all the results that I,was looking for,so now we will pause for about ten,months while I just put this in the,corner cuz I had no idea how to finish,it then I came across a video where this,girl was using Crayolas model magic this,stuff is marketed at kids to be super,easy to use and again it's air dry and,the way she was using it I was like wait,that is exactly what I'm looking for,maybe that is perfect and let me tell,you this stuff is perfect it was exactly,what I was looking for it was super,super easy to mold it was super easy to,use it's not necessarily like the,smoothest clay that I've ever used like,if you're expecting to get like pottery,clay results you definitely will not get,them using this but if you're just,trying to make your Jack Skellington,costume work for the best,this stuff was awesome and it just it,bent so well and it was so easy to shape,and I would highly highly recommend this,product and then after shaping the eyes,I rolled up a long piece for the teeth,and I think the teeth are honestly my,favorite part because holy cow they look,so good they just they look like actual,little skeleton teeth so I took the long,strip and I narrowed it at the top and,bottom so that way it would be easier to,blend in and wouldn't look like teeth,are just stuck on top and I grabbed one,of my paintbrushes cuz I knew I wanted,to like dig into the grooves to give him,that kind of teeth texture so I'm,literally just free handing this which,is perfect because teeth are not all the,same so you definitely don't want to,make a mold and I'm just using the back,of this paint brush to really kind of,flatten out that tooth shape and this is,something that really doesn't take a lot,of time it is not tedious the way you,know wrapping the ball in paper mache is,this is something that was really easy,and definitely had the payoff because,like immediately I was like this is all,this just is totally working and is so,good and because this mono Magic is not,really like the best clay in the entire,world it actually had kind of gaps in,spaces in it which when you look closely,really looks more like teeth texture can,I say enough positive things about this,product probably not but I was so happy,literally after not being able to make,this project work,after having these results I was just,like through the roof excited so I let,on the mono magic dry for about two days,and you can see it does have some,cracking like normal because this,project is so big I also had to go in,and super glue down some of the teeth,which is why there's some blue tape in,it and I definitely had to superglue,kind of his eye area in some spots that,were weaker just to verify that they're,definitely going to stay there and not,going anywhere,and then now I'm gonna take my exacto,knife and I'm going to cut out around,his eyes cuz we want that to be black,and we want her inside of it to be able,to see because otherwise you could just,paint it black which would totally work,except that like you'd have no idea,where you're going after making the glue,paste out of flour and water I'm then,going to cut really kind of thin strips,of newspaper again and I'm doing thin,strips all the way around the eye socket,and I'm going to wrap a little bit,underneath his eye so that it's nice and,smooth all the way around and I'm also,gonna want to make sure it goes down his,brow so it covers up all the clay and,like a really smooth manner and I'm,literally just going to go all the way,around him which again will take you a,little bit of time probably like one or,two hours definitely leave some time for,that after I'm done with the eyes I'm,then also going to wrap it kind of on,top of the teeth so I really want the,teeth to look like they are flush and,like they are part of him rather than,just kind of stuck on top which is what,they very much look like right now,and this is also going to help cover up,any of the spots that I had cracking in,because this ball is so big there were a,lot of like cracks that happened when,the clay was drying which I tried it to,super glue down which you can see like,totally didn't work but I tried really,hard so I'm just going to make sure that,I smooth the newspaper across where his,teeth meet his face so that way it's,gonna look like one seamless and,cohesive piece so here's what he looks,like in all of his newspaper he glory,and again there's the close-up of where,the cracks were in his teeth that I,literally just covered up with that,newspaper so that way it will not have,those just giant crack I waited two days,before I started painting I'm just going,to,some normal white paint from the craft,store that's about a dollar or fifty,cents I've seen in other tutorials where,people do paper mache they actually,layer the top with white tissue paper or,white construction paper that way you,don't have to put like ten coats of,white paint on this and you don't have,the newspaper showing through I,definitely had to apply at least three,or four coats of white paint because,this newspaper print was not going,anywhere and this paint isn't,particularly thick it's very kind of,thin and washy so if you do have a,thicker paint that's a better idea or,you can use some white scrap paper and,that would probably give you quicker,results after coating him with tons and,tons of white paint I'm then going to go,back through with black paint and I'm,going to paint out his little nose holes,I think I don't know it looked it made,him look kind of Jack Skellington II and,then I'm going to paint all around the,teeth and you kind of want to add like,wispy lines this doesn't you definitely,don't need this to be perfect it's just,going to really make his teeth shape pop,out and the wispier the ends are the,better it definitely makes it look,really really cool and creepy and I am,so excited with how these teeth turned,out can I say that any more times these,teeth are freaking awesome,they are my favorite part of this,project they're just so so good,after all the penis dry gear then going,to outline the shape of a circle and,this is where I'm going to cut the hole,for your head to go in obviously this,differs based on who you're putting this,on if you're putting it on a little kid,you can make the hole bigger if you're,putting it on an adult go for it I found,that kind of a universally shaped one,fit both myself and my male friend who,has a giant head it fit both of us,really well and this thing looks awesome,and that's it and you're done,so that is all for the actual tutorial,part of this I will tell you that this,thing is freaking amazing there are so,many times on this channel or at DIY,projects where I make things and I just,don't really like the way they turned,out but I definitely like try and make,it make the best out of a bad situation,where I always want to show you guys in,case you want to try and so hopefully,you don't make the same mistakes as me,this however is definitely not one of,those this thing I love like,look at how cool this thing looks how,cool it turned out the only downside to,it was I actually started making this in,2018 before that Halloween and then I,just never finished it so we literally,sat on my living room floor just chillin,like a ball for like an entire year,because I had no idea what kind of clay,to use up here in his brow and also to,make these teeth but once I finally,sorted that out super inexpensive cost,to make this and it looks so good and,now I'm like I don't even know what to,do with this freaking three-foot-tall,head that looks incredible cuz obviously,I can't get rid of it because it's,amazing it's definitely one where it's a,little time-consuming this guy would,probably take you a good like 10 to 15,hours if I'm being realistic because you,have to paper mache and wait for,everything to dry so there's a lot of,day drying time so you probably couldn't,make this any faster than like three,days a week I mean there's definitely,like a time element involved in this one,but the results are so worth it I made,this for myself but I had one of my,friends wear it to a Halloween party and,everyone like loved it they were like,this is the best costume I've ever seen,and I'm like,I made that costume but it's fine,the only that I made it but this is one,where it makes a huge impression and it,is so dang cool and the other side of it,is you can wear this without having to,put face makeup on which is kind of,itchy if you wear it for a while though,this is something that is great back to,being Jack if you guys liked this video,please give it a big thumbs up and if,you're not subscribe you hit the,subscribe button

MAYOR + OOGIE BOOGIE COSTUME DIY | Nightmare Before Christmas Costumes Part 1

MAYOR + OOGIE BOOGIE COSTUME DIY | Nightmare Before Christmas Costumes Part 1

hey guys welcome back to my channel,today's video is part one of a three,part series I am making on all the,costumes for the Nightmare Before,Christmas so in today's video I will be,making the mayor and Oogie Boogie for,the mayor's head I just grabbed a,lampshade from our thrift store for two,dollars and pulled off all the wrapping,and then I am just going to be painting,the front and the back different colors,for the two different phases so this,first color is a peachy pink color I,will have all the pink colors as well as,all the materials needed for these,costumes in the description box below so,be sure to check that out on the other,side of his face I will be painting it a,light bluish color for the front of his,face I didn't show you this part because,you really couldn't see it out lined his,whole face with a pencil and I did it,really lightly so if I did mess up it be,easy to fix,I'm just looking at a picture on my,computer for reference,now for the cheeks I got a little bit of,this peachy color on this sponge brush,and I'm just blending it out like you,would on your real cheek you know really,lightly and just using that blending,motion outlined the lips the cheeks and,I also outline the bottom of his face,with that color now going in with some,bright white paint I am painting on his,teeth again I'm looking at a picture for,reference so I know exactly how his,smile looks once his teeth were done I,outlined everything with black using a,really fine tipped paint brush and then,I'm also going to be drawing lines for,his teeth,moving onto the backside I am just,outlining his entire face structure with,a very light gray color and I am just,blending this in it looks pretty sloppy,but now I know where exactly I will be,doing his face I found this mustard,color and I thought this would be a good,color for his eyes take his time joke up,and quit the kitchen tap, dirty dishes and then I'm,outlining his eyes with a green it kind,of looks a little bit different here but,I do go over all of the outlines again,with a darker green,to,this is how do you feel the one Lucas,again with a really fine tipped paint,brush I'm going in with some black and,painting on his zigzag teeth,now for the mayor's hat I picked up some,of this foam poster board from Dollar,Tree and measuring the bottom of the,width of the hat I use that for the,reference to cut it out but that is what,the bottom of the hat is is just that,thick poster board and then using a,normal poster board from Dollar Tree I,am rolling it up and gluing it together,with some hot glue and this will be the,top portion of his hat,now it's a good to stay on I just cut a,few slits at the bottom so that I could,fold them down and then I will just glue,this with the hot glue on the top of the,Hat,the last thing I did for the Hat is I,glued a little piece of gray felt to the,bottom and I feel like that gave it the,perfect finishing touch to finish off,the mayor's look you will need a gray,suit coat jacket I picked this up for a,few dollars at our thrift store as well,as a white dress shirt and some black,slacks you will also want to have a,spider and we just safety-pin that to,the shirts and of course his mayor award,pin moving on to agee boogie we're gonna,start out with a mask and I just picked,up this mask from Dollar Tree I will,tell you guys I followed another YouTube,video for this and that is what inspired,me to decide to actually make this,costume instead of byuk there was a few,costumes I was like you know what I feel,like it would just be easier to buy but,for the og Boogie costume if you get a,nice one they're upwards of two and,three hundred dollars so I figured I,should try making this so all I'm doing,is using this Dollar Tree mask and I'm,gluing on this piece of poster board so,that I can just have more room for the,mouth because oogie-boogies face is,longer than this mask and using some air,dry modeling clay I am going to be,molding the shape of his face this does,not need to be perfect all you really,need is to get an outline of what his,face is going to look like so that when,you put the burlap over the top of it it,will mold to the face what you really,want to pay attention to is making sure,that his nose is flat because he doesn't,have a nose so flatten out that nose,area and then just give him those really,bulgy big huge eyes and also the lips,you want the lips to be as big as,possible this did take over 24 hours to,dry so if you want to get started on,this costume for Halloween then you,better start doing it like right now,while that's drying we are just going to,outline the body for oogie-boogie so I'm,drawing my husband's outlines so I know,about how big I need this my brother who,is I think 63 or 64 is actually going to,be this costume so I did have to add a,little bit of extra at the top but what,I'm doing is getting two pieces of this,body shape you are going to hot glue the,seams so on the edges of the bottom,I am leaving that open so that he can,stick his feet through because that will,be a separate thing but again I'm just,gluing all the sides and I also only,glued it up about 3/4 of the way because,I will be adding arms into that,so this felt portion all I am doing is,gluing this so that I could shove,stuffing into it and I'll be doing this,on the front and the back side of the,costume,I picked up the stuffing at Walmart for,$10 I think it was about 30 at jo-ann so,just so you know it's a lot cheaper if,you pick it up at Walmart,I didn't show you this part but I did,turn this inside out and that is the,blob that's laying next to me on the,other side so once you have it all glued,then you will turn it inside out and you,have your body now I'm just adding some,feet and I will also be adding some arms,I just traced my leg and then I also,trace my arm and that's why I get the,arm in the leg shape you're going to,need four of each obviously because you,are going to be gluing two of them,together and then folding them inside,out make sure that you are not gluing,the tops of the legs and the arms,because that is where obviously you need,to be putting your feet and your arms,through once you have all your pieces,glued together then I'm just going in,with some of this black jute and I'm,giving him his stitches the stitches,don't really need to look any certain,way they're very messy on him so,whatever you want to do just add some,black jute through it so that you can,see all the cute stitching on all the,sides of his body okay we're working on,the mask again as you can see some of it,had actually broken off but that's okay,again all we need is the outline of the,lips and the eyes that's the most,important I am actually leaving this,glued to the mask I hot-glued everything,so that it stayed on the mask so that,you could easily slip it on to your head,since it has a strap on the back but,what I'm doing here is I'm just gluing,some of this brown felt to the mask,because the burlap is see-through I,wanted it to be ten underneath I don't,know if this is necessarily needed but I,do think it helped it look a little bit,better then going in with some black,felt I am giving him his mouth,and again just hot gluing I will tell,you I have about 3,000 burns from the,hot glue gun and I probably used two,bags of hot glue sticks this took a lot,of hot glue,now using some black mesh that's,actually what I stuck in the eyes so,that you could still see through them,however my brother claims that he still,could not see so maybe you don't need as,much as I shoved in the little eye holes,now we're covering his face with some,burlap you want to use a big piece of,burlap for this and you will just be,molding this to the face again hot glue,whatever you need to stick the hot glue,down I use knives marker tips anything,but your fingers so that you're not,burning yourself a whole bunch this took,about 30 minutes of me working with a,burlap and just moving it around gluing,it making sure it stayed exactly where I,wanted it to stay,once that's done you want to cut this,into a kind of a triangle shape but make,sure that your head could fit through it,and then you're going to glue another,piece exactly the same size to it and,then you're going to turn it inside out,and then you will have your awesome mask,I ended up putting just a little bit of,stuffing in the tip of this hat to give,it a little bit more of some volume up,there I also ended up painting back the,Hat a little bit because this hat kind,of flops backwards so I glued that fold,just like that so it stays like that now,I am going in with some tan paint and,just giving him some more shadows on his,lips and the top of his eyes and that is,all I did guys for this costume and then,once my brother was in the costume,I actually velcroed the top the neck,area that is all just velcroed on so,that way you could easily slip out of,the costume with no problems I have to,say I've just been laughing my head off,at all these clips of my brother in this,costume I cannot take it seriously but,if you guys liked this video please give,it a thumbs up I do have two additional,videos for this series so stay tuned for,my lock shock and Barrel the,trick-or-treaters and also my three,different Jack's I have a separate video,for each of those and I hope you stick,around to see those as well thanks again,so much for watching and we'll see you,guys in the next video

JACK SKELLINGTON COSTUMES DIY | Part 3 Nightmare Before Christmas Series

JACK SKELLINGTON COSTUMES DIY | Part 3 Nightmare Before Christmas Series

hey guys welcome to part three of my,three-part series of making all the,costumes for the Nightmare Before,Christmas so in part one I did the mayor,and Oogie Boogie part two was locked,shock and Barrel the trick-or-treaters,and in today's video I will be doing all,of the variations of Jack I will be,doing the normal Jack Skellington the,Santa version and the original version,of him with a pumpkin head that's shown,at the very beginning so we are going to,start with the first version of Jack and,I just picked up this burgundy maroon,purpley color sweater at our thrift,store and I picked it up for just a,couple of dollars but all I'm going to,do is cut it down the center and then,cut the arms so they look really ragged,for the pants I actually picked up this,pair at our thrift store I didn't end up,gluing them to the pants that's what I,thought I was going to do but I use this,as a reference for the size I needed to,cut the burlap so all I did was cut,around the pants make sure you give it a,few inches I did it a little too close I,would definitely add at least two or,three inches on either side because when,you're gluing it together obviously it's,going to be a little bit smaller so I,glue this together the same way I did,Aggie boogie and then I just slipped the,pants in and someone my husband put them,on it looks like he's just wearing these,but it also has the other pair of pants,underneath it now for the shirt I just,wanted to run this burlap all the way up,to his neck I just got one of my,husband's shirts that he doesn't wear,anymore and I'm gluing this piece of,burlap to the front of the shirt,as for the pumpkin head I ordered this,off Amazon,this was definitely the priciest thing I,purchased for all of the costumes,carvable pumpkins are no joke,they can run pretty high and this is a,really large one it's 15 by 11,I cut out a big hole in the bottom for,his head and then with a pencil I drew,the face that I wanted to carve and I,really just copied the picture from the,movie now for his wood sign I picked up,a piece of wood at Lowe's I believe I,paid $4 for this and I originally,painted it brown and then I realized,it's black and gray so I went back over,this don't worry about the brown,underneath it I end up just cutting that,off but I just did a black and gray,acrylic paint over the top and then I,went over with a sharpie and wrote,Halloweentown,since the O in Halloween is the center,I did the O first and then I wrote all,the other letters outside of it just to,make sure that your words are centered,all we did from here is we stapled,another piece of wood on the back and,then he stuck it in his shirt,now moving on to the original Jack the,costume we purchased came with this,little necktie but in the movie if,you've noticed his necktie is huge it,comes past his shoulders so I wanted to,make the necktie a lot bigger I picked,up some foam from Walmart and these were,I believe 40 cents for each piece and,then I'm just tracing this over I just,looked at it and I got an idea of what,the shape was and then again I traced it,on to the other one so that they were,exactly even and then I also cut out a,little cap for the center,now going back over with some black felt,I'm tracing this on again and I'm just,going to be hot gluing these together,now for the last piece I just got some,white acrylic paint and I am just,painting on the design that's on his,necktie,now to finish off this costume I got,some white and some black face paint and,I'm just painting a neck on my sister I,think this is pretty necessary and when,doing a Jack and wanting it to look as,realistic as possible you want a really,thin neck that's what makes it look,funny is when people just put the head,on and then you see a big thick neck,underneath if there's a thin neck it,looks way more realistic and like the,movie,I purchased this costume in Searchers,and this is the woman's one I think this,one looks the most realistic out of any,of the actual costumes you can buy I,like the back how it has that tail so,even if you're a guy I think that I,would purchase this version of it rather,than the other one that they have in,stores now moving on to the last one,which is the Santa and I think that I,had the most fun with this one maybe,because it was also the easiest to do so,I picked up this fabric from Joanne's,it's just a white hair fabric it was,$17.99 a yard and I just got a little,sliver off of it because I only needed a,long piece to go down and to make a,beard my son is in the head for,reference and I'm going to make this,basically as long as my child so I'm,cutting this all the way down and then,at the very end I just did a little,swirl,I picked up this Santa outfit at,Searchers as well and I only paid 30,bucks for it so this was a very easy,costume all I had to do again was make,the beard and I hot glued it on to the,face I also hot glued the Hat on and,this is just a hat that came with the,costume okay guys well that was,everything for this series thank you,guys so much for watching if you happen,to miss any of these videos be sure to,go back and watch part 1 and part 2,where I do the boogie

DIY Jack Skellington Mask and Costume

DIY Jack Skellington Mask and Costume

I'm making this video to show people how,I made my Jack Skellington costume which,I used for Halloween I think it turned,out pretty good and a lot of people that,saw it loved it and I took as many,photos as I could so I thought I'd do a,little do-it-yourself in case anyone,wants to try and make it one so I,started off by getting a punch balloon,from Walmart these were like kind of my,kids get at birthday parties as like,more band attached to it and I blew it,up to like the general size that I,thought I wanted then proceeded to do,paper mache layers and layers of paper,mache on the balloon and I think I did,about six layers and you know you gotta,let these a couple days for to drive to,an each player once the layers were all,dried I used you know my ruler and,sharpie pen to mark the center lines and,get the general area in a layout for,what I wanted the eyes in the nose and,the mouth,the nose I actually put on tape so that,I could move them and adjust them and,get them exactly the way I wanted the,detail drawing wasn't going to show up,at all in masks but just really gave me,a good kind of blueprint to follow then,after doing the main drawing I used,model magic which is like an air dry,putty kind of clay stuff that kids use,it's really light pretty easy to mold,and it air dries so I bought like a,bunch of that stuff and did start with,the upper teeth or jaw and followed the,blueprint lines to put where I wanted,the teeth I then molded the bottom jaw,got it all kind of shape I wanted,smoothed it out and spread it out a,little bit more over the full mask to,make it sit a little bit better and a,bit more of a gradual slope the nose,there was what I started with and moved,on to the eyes or the eyebrows um it,really didn't take that long to actually,mold this I was kind of surprised and I,think it really,added a lot of kind of depth to the mask,and like I said this model magic stuff,is really light so it really didn't add,that much weight to it whatsoever the,next morning I realized I didn't like,the nose so I was able to reshape it a,bit because that model magic does take a,long time to dry so that's what that is,there it's just a little bit of reshape,once of all magic dried for as many days,as I could wait I did last game at Shea,covering with paper towel because the,paper towel is really soft and it's able,to get in all those kind of crevices and,really get that detail so it kind of,shows that the detail working up through,each of the teeth and stuff so it,actually turned out pretty good I use an,exacto knife to cut the eyes out which,was a little stressful because after all,you know it's probably been at least a,couple weeks by now and I really didn't,want to screw it up so you can see,that's like the eyes cut out a little,part on the bottom there's the mouth,little slit I cut out as well now this,again really didn't add much weight to,it whatsoever,the full mask is quite light um which is,really nice giving me wear it all night,this photo just shows me working on and,then my wife's that dragon the cheese,for her Khaleesi costume I then used,fiberglass and a two-part epoxy resin,that I got from like a fiber wear ship,store whatever it's called and I,fiberglass the inside of the mask along,where the hole for your head goes,because at this point I still had a lot,of flex to it and I really needed to,stiffen it up before putting a plaster,on it to smooth it out I also use the,resin around the mouth and all the,detail work just to add some strength,because I again I really didn't want any,issues with cracking or flexing and such,I then used um kind of like a plaster,putty what you'd use on drywall to fill,in like staple holes and such and starts,pink and dries white so I did multiple,layers so the first layer is the first,layer and the nice,and it down all by hand just try to,start smoothing it out I really wanted a,really smooth mask I didn't want that,kind of lumpiness that you see a lot of,I really wanted to be perfect so you,know this is the first layer and after,sanding then I did a second layer which,you can see here and then there's still,more crevices and such so every time you,add a layer sand down add a layer sanded,um I would use water and like rubber,gloves or latex gloves or nitrile gloves,actually and with your hand I'd smooth,it out as most as much as possible,because the smoother it is after you,apply it the less sanding you have to do,um so this is just kind of picture of me,using the water and just just smoothing,it out so you can see how pink it is,there and once it dries it dries white,so it's really helpful because then you,know these photos just kind of show,after all the detail sanding um it took,a long time and I think my hands cramped,up a ton just from all the sanding again,you know into the eyebrows around the,nose around all the t's um but it's one,of those things that's really it's kind,of probably the main part that you need,to really spend the time on because if,what's really the end finish result,relies on this kind of detail work so,this is it all done dried sanded you can,see is so not perfect but it's as good,as listas gonna get for me I then you,use that two-part epoxy resin um I used,for fiberglass in and coated the entire,mask in it I really did not want to like,drop this thing or bump it and then have,that like plaster stuff crack off it's,that stuff that plasters really fragile,really brittle so I decided to do this,and you can see like it gave like a,glassy finish it was really smooth after,doing that so I was really happy and,it's super strong rigid no flex to it,whatsoever anymore I didn't used a gray,spray paint primer to just do a good,primer coat I think I did about two or,three coats of primer on it just to give,a base and then after the primer had,dried I sanded it all down and,for the other for the white paint while,doing on painting I worked on the bat,tie so the bat tie the actual bat head I,used that model magic stuff and kind of,shape the head the way I wanted it I,then also coated that in that two-part,epoxy resin just because a lot of,Magic's really spongy and such so just,give some strength the wings I cut out,of like a plastic that I used for a,different mask and then I just epoxy the,bat wing onto the head or the the bat,head after that was done I used some,like just like home epoxy two-part epoxy,and made the little lines just that,we're going to be painted on lines but I,wanted a bit more of a 3d effect so I,put that on there which you can kind of,see in that photo and then spray painted,the whole thing flat black once that was,all done and dry and I did the I think I,did about four coats of white paint and,let that dry for multiple hours and then,went out and did a couple coats with a,not a flat but a semi flat clear coat,just to protect it seal everything in,and make it just as perfect as possible,um to basically wear this thing on your,head what I did was I used a helmet,which I got from like a Walmart which I,think the helmet cost me like ten,dollars it's like the cheapest helmet,you could ever imagine but it was,perfect because it's super light and,it's just foam so what I did was I used,a hacksaw and just start cutting up the,helmet one so I could get it into my,mask and - so that would kind of sit,properly because the you know the mask,is very round so I had to shape the,helmet so it would actually fit inside,once I had fit in there and shaved down,as much as I could have wanted,I used the holm epoxy stuck it on there,and then put my head in there and kind,of adjusted it the way I wanted um once,that was all done I got some black paint,and did the detail work around the,teeth and just for the nose um I did,that before doing the clear coat because,I kind of wanted I didn't want,everything to be clear coated together,so the black kind of stands out a bit,more which is nice then I used some hot,glue and glued in some black fabric on,the inside of the eyes um the fabric is,really easy to see through I use it for,another mask as well and that was pretty,much it for the mask for the jacket I,got from a value village which my sister,and I modified and kind of brought the,front up and put a big white button on,it and then I used white fabric paint,and painted painted on every single line,all by hand and it took forever I did,that on the jacket it's black pants that,I had um the paint uh you iron on after,so after it's all dried you use iron and,iron it on to kind of set it and that,stuff like he put in the wash and it,doesn't come off it worked really well,and it's super bright it it's so the,lines stand up so much and I seen all,that people make cultures where they um,buy stripe fabric but this way really,makes it look great this is just um the,finished mask um all done dried,everything with a couple of the other,masks I made that's a Phantom of the,Opera mask that I did a couple years ago,and that's a witch King from Lord of,rings mask I made last year for,Halloween,um the lower the Rings mask the big one,there is made out of plastic which is,what I use for the bat wings that I used,for the tie and it'd be great if I could,do a similar video like this for that,mask but I didn't really take photos,when I was making it which is why I took,all the photos for the Jack Skellington,mask so I think the end result turned,out really well,really and I'm looking really good and,stop a lot of people really like,on Halloween um we had up going out to a,club that night and I just picture me,and friend of mine Robin just before we,got there and another friend can in the,venom costume one great thing about this,caution was I did that little slit in,the mouth and that was for I thought was,gonna be for like kind of a bit more,breathability but in the end it was,great because I was able to put a straw,in it so I was able to drink out of it,really easily um which was awesome,this is kind of cool photo but I wish,the white popped out a bit more in black,light which I might do some more,painting to make it pop out more um and,that's my wife there in her Daenerys,caution with the dragon that she made so,I also ended up wearing this to the,Vancouver Fan Expo um which was great my,feet and legs were killing me because I,ended up just taking photos with people,for the entire day I barely got to go,and look at any stuff um that's a John,Boorman from the TV show arrow he really,liked it loved the costume and want some,photos which was pretty cool um yeah so,otherwise pretty much everything worked,out really well I hope you like my,costume and hopefully this is very,educational and maybe you'll go and try,and make your own if you have any,questions about how I did the mask or,the clothes or anything like that,feel free to leave them in the comment,section and I'll do my best to answer,them

DIY Jack Skellington Clothes

DIY Jack Skellington Clothes

in order to make Jack's outfit you do,not have to be a seamstress in fact I'm,not gonna sew a thing on him I'm,actually going to just hot glue the,pieces together and you can certainly,hand sew it if you like or do it on the,sewing machine but we spent so much time,on him already I just really want to get,them out there and start on the next,next projects as well and it will still,look just as good it doesn't have to be,a perfectly tailored jacket it's Jack,it's Halloween so I went out and bought,just plain black fabric this is,polyester it's the cheapest thing um I,stayed away from cotton because it fades,faster and then it also shows a lot of,wrinkles you can get a striped fabric,but I opted for the black because if you,didn't stripe fabric then you're stuck,with making everything that way there's,no way if you have a scrap of fabric you,can't turn it it'll just look silly,so I also went and picked up at the,fabric store fabric paint just cheap,old-school white fabric paint so once I,cut all the pieces before I put them on,him I will go ahead and just paint all,of the stripes let it dry then put it,together I'm just gonna make two,straight legs of pants basically since,this hands are super high waisted I'm,actually just gonna make a separate,piece and just kind of glue it onto the,legs in the front all the way to the top,once we put the stripes on it'll all,look pretty uniform so first thing I did,was measure from his hips all the way,down to his feet so I know how long to,make it and then now I need to know how,wide to make it the widest point are,going to be your joints then you want to,give yourself at least an inch an inch,and a half to give yourself a seam,enough to glue to fold over and then I'm,going to work with Casey make a mistake,I'm just gonna cut it out put it on,there,fits all right and then if it does I'll,just copy the same exact piece for the,second month,now I'm going to do the same thing with,his arms I'm going to measure the length,of his arms and it's going to be the,same width around as the legs,at first I was just gonna lay the fabric,on him draw him with some chalk and then,cut it out I don't have too much fabric,left so I'm gonna mock it up with paper,first make a pattern I happen to have,some free third paper in the house it's,just it's really thick butcher paper,basically that I can draw on and cut and,put holes in it this is pretty sturdy if,you don't have this paper,no biggie you can use parchment paper,wrapping paper you can even just tape,together so the computer paper should,work just fine,so now I'm going to get a pair of,scissors and I'm going to just cut some,of this extra slack off the side just so,I can see a little better where I'm,going I remember this is the back of,Jack we're going to start with this back,first remember that he has really long,spindly coattails choose to keep that in,mind we're gonna do the jacket and two,separate pieces the back piece and then,two separate front pieces and then we'll,just glue them all together once they're,on him and the stripes are already been,painted,you,so at this point it's really important,to remember that this is just a general,mock-up we're gonna cut the fabric we're,going to cut it a little bigger than we,need the part where we really make it,into shape is when we get the glue and,we actually have it on him and then you,can make it smaller you can make some,little adjustments and tweak them out,this is just the basic shape I'm gonna,go and I'm going to tape all of the,scenes up really really well to make it,as one whole piece then I'm gonna take,scissors and just cut it in half totally,so I have those two half pieces once I,have that in half I'm gonna go ahead and,I'm gonna cut the V in his chest you,know it's just it's just gonna be a V,then we're gonna cover it with lapels,after so don't worry about it fraying,anything like that then we also have to,make like I said he has really high,waisted pants so I'm actually just gonna,take a square of fabric and just make it,long enough that I can cut it tuck it,under his crotch a little bit to hide,all of this all right here's our front,piece so now we just need to cut the,angles the two triangles in there so I,made a middle mark down here to where,his spine was so I'm gonna roughly fold,it in the middle as close as I can to,the middle,now I also had made a mark to how far I,would like to cut down,you,next step is cutting out the front in,the back all you need to do is let your,pieces out onto your fabric traits,around them give yourself an extra half,inch to an inch around the edges to some,room to work with and then cut them out,and then we'll put them together,now I'm gonna paint the pieces that I've,already cut as far as the lapels and the,top part of his pants I'm gonna wait,until after I put everything together,and then cut them out from there it'll,be a little easier now jack doesn't have,perfect straight pin stripes they almost,look like like like a stripes you would,you would have if you're making a fake,tree,you,I cut Jack's best in half just to make,it a little easier to move around now,I'm just going to start taping and,pinning pieces roughly where I think,they should go then once I'm pretty,happy with that I'm gonna grab my glue,gun and just start gluing the pieces,together like I said you don't have to,be seam shows there's no science to it,just do what you think looks good you,just start kind of tacking pieces and,just start gluing them on I'm going to,do the jacket first then the arms then,the legs and then we'll do the the,bottom piece here and cut the coattails,very last,you,onto the lapels I'm going to use the,same paper pattern idea I just taped a,piece on here I'm just going to trace,because I can see through it,trace where the line of his vest is then,his lapels kind of come down there's a,triangle wedge and then they meet at the,bottom I'm gonna cut two of these out,just reverse it on the other side now,when you go to paint these stripes on,they go down in an angle like this all,the way down for the lapels so that's,their front and center and their focal,point I decided to take the edges and,glue them fold them over and make a nice,seam so get it a nice edge so it's not,fraying if you do decide to do this part,when you cut it out make sure you give,yourself a half inch seam allowance,I didn't which cost some nice blisters,on my fingers when I had to hot glue,them,jack has really really small feet so I,actually got these cardboard inserts out,of a new pair of tennis shoes that I,just covered in black duct tape I'm,gonna take this it's the wrong foot but,I'm gonna take Cu foot and just tape it,directly onto the bottom of the PVC and,then hem his pants accordingly if you're,not able to get these then just make it,out of a regular piece of cardboard and,just kind of Bend up the cardboard a,little bit and tape it a whole bunch of,duct tape I don't know if you could,paint silver duct tape but you could buy,a black duct tape it's really cheap,I went ahead and cut the coat-tails,I didn't draw them out I just grabbed a,pair of scissors and started cutting I'm,a little afraid that the edges are going,to start to fray with all the wind,outside so I'm gonna use the same method,as I did for the lapels I'm just gonna,put a little bead of hot glue along the,edge and just fold maybe a quarter inch,to a half inch over there are two other,options you can do is instead of the hot,glue you can just use clear nail polish,you don't have to fold it over just put,some clear nail polish along the edge,there's also on the item that they sell,in fabric stores called fray check comes,in this little bottle maybe two three,ounces it's a clear and he's it,basically that you just put along the,edges to keep it from fraying Jack's bat,bowtie is one of the most important part,of the costumes it's probably also one,of the most simple things to make - I,used these foam craft sheets if you can,get them in any craft store or even some,fabric stores carry them if you're not,able to get this just use some black,poster board I got out three shapes,I cut out wings which are identical and,then a bat head which also kind of looks,like a cat head now I'm just gonna use,my same fabric paint that I use for his,clothes for the stripes and just make,some they almost look like veins just,three mains on each wing and then paint,in the eyes on the head once I'm,finished with that I'm gonna go ahead,and just glue the wings onto the back of,the head,so I'm just gonna hot glue the bat tie,right to the PVC to cover up all of the,joints,if you watch the video the,did on making Jack's body you'll see,that we talked about doing different,attachments to put his head actually,into his body since his body is a much,larger engaged PVC than his neck we had,to get some step-down adjustments swift,G separate pieces one that's,three-quarter inch for the neck and then,this one fits inside the one and I,believe it's a quarter-inch we'll use,for his body,we actually glued these pieces into his,head to make it a little more stout so,this will just slide into his body we,also have two more of these pieces that,work we're going to glue on his,Christmas head as well too so we can,interchange them and it's pretty easy,just to put them in and out,you,perky and squirt both want to say thanks,for watching if you want to learn how to,make the rest of Jack some more,Nightmare Before Christmas props as well,as other Halloween shenanigans make sure,you subscribe any comments or questions,make sure you leave them below thanks,much,you

DIY Jack Skellington Mask (Part1)

DIY Jack Skellington Mask (Part1)

thanks for tuning in you beautiful,bastards today we are going to be making,ourselves a life-sized Jack Skellington,man underneath these layers of newspaper,is a beach ball not unlike this beach,ball that was actually the first one I,altered but I got the sizes wrong so I,had to order a bigger one,double the size and the Bennets sitting,on happens to be the exact same size as,my head so it fits over perfect that's,the size of the hole I'm going to be,cutting out with there later get some,vva glue strips of paper when I first,started this I was using a thick,wallpaper paste for maybe the first,three layers and the fourth in the fifth,wheel I did using PVA glue loudly did,the other section about 20 minutes ago,and let it dry because BVA glue dries,quicker than wallpaper paste so I'm,gonna do the last section now get some,PVA glue remember don't open the,thing run the PVA glue down the length,of the strip so you know where you're,putting it move that out the way get a,paintbrush drain all the excess water,off and just paint back glue all over,the surface once that coated then you,strip the paper just paint it on nice,and gentle,don't worry if you get too many wrinkles,of bubbles in it like just the small,wrinkles in bubbles they'll come out,when it dries came too late,wallpaper dries not the big bubbles but,the reverb now I use a marker pen to,mark off where the first strip was just,picked because as you continue at Kengo,it becomes hard to tell whether you,begun now kind of blends in with each,other because it's all just strips of,newspaper here's a tip for your stop,from the first strip vo and then what,care we round that way and that way and,that way that way you're not fitting,your hand in wet glue working the other,way well that's if you're right-handed,you don't have to dip the brush in the,water all the time you'll know when you,need it now pick your line and overlap,this strip the more you overlap it is,stronger it's going to be and when you,add more glue for your next strip of,paper,you're already painting it over the top,it'll last rip the paper anyway so it's,more reinforcement at the end of the day,it strengthens it up no don't worry,about putting the strips of paper right,to the top there because there's a whole,section getting cut out around there for,your head to go in now I'm gonna work,out how I want it to look now that the,base of the head is ready to be worked,on,now when you pasted this up remember to,leave that nozzle that poking out so you,don't have to fight to get to outside,the inside of the ball now make it,easier to deflate it to peel it out now,before we deflate it you're gonna have,to mark off where the head is gonna be,but where my head's going to be is that,benefits over my head perfectly as you,can see try and get a scent Abhisek on,draw around that give that nipple a,good squeeze mine,now change the blades on fix,bayonets no I have to try and do this,without chopping a bloody finger off as,what happens when you put some extra,layers on there get tough and that,right up,now look at that big old thick that is,that's at least a solid week and a half,of Putin news people on there we're,gonna have to reinforce that that a,little bit or worry about that in a,minute,CP first,you know you'll have this sexy cut-out I,can get in there with this as a snip,snip,tidied up but up in a minute,this is it now let's get rid of that,section we don't need that and this is,what we're left with that should now fit,over my head,get some padding up there and I still,want my neck to show so I'm gonna need,to get some weight thing ski mask of,some now for reinforcements get,ourselves some small strips and they're,gonna go over there to reinforce the,aths of this don't worry about getting,this glue all over your fingers because,this is the same PVA glue you would,deliberately cover your hands with,anyway in high school and primary and,stuff so you can peel it off like an,extra layer of skin like a snake,shedding his skin acts a little caught,in there no way to do that all the way,around the whole of the bottom of this,glue the glue there paint that on,paint it on get another strip and,remember you want to overlap this as,well so it's stronger paint it on the,inside there we go,when the whole thing's done I'm gonna,coat it again with some more PVA glue,now get back in a minute,go that's that reinforced looking la,Blair now working on eyeballs,copy but not I am happy without,right so I'm going to cut that out and,use that as a template for the other,life so the to them of the exact same,size craft night mate fix we're,nerds,oh,Bob's yet granny's son now I need to,take my eye from that section and I want,it to be a reverse image so pop that out,and then figure out where I want it to,go and draw around it maybe you got,simples,now we're not through them are the same,size but the more PVA glue put some more,wallpaper around the edges of these,holes just a puff and I'm up a little,bit come on strong,it would help if you open at,Franco,sure,maybe I got that's the first eyeball,done got a reinforce that one now for,five balls done being reinforced -,we're more paper and PVA glue and I,reinforced the bottom over again last,night just reinforce all the holes,anything you put a knife to a cut a hole,in to reinforce that with more,glue and wallpaper paste,people know normally I would start by,doing the noise first but and working my,way out from there but today well this,week the noise is going to be last and,I'm gonna draw the mouth on see if I'm,happy weird of mouth is situated and how,that looks then cut that now then I'm,gonna figure out how I'm going to build,the nose so I've drawn the mouth on I'm,kinda happy with that still gotta cut it,out though and reinforce it like I did,with the eyeballs with some extra paper,PVA glue one of the many things I've,said paper and PVA glue so far I'm not,sure if I should cut this out now before,they do the noise or do they know us,first and then cut out the mouth yeah I,think I'm gonna do the nose first with,everything that I do I just wing it so,I'm winging the noise here what I think,is gonna be appropriate size for the,nose that triangle there that's kinda,where I'm working out where it's going,to be this we triangle of working on a,bad piece of crap here this V triangle,is clearly going to be my nose I just,have to cut this out and figure out how,I'm gonna work it onto the face I'm just,winging this remember just making up as,I go along,I'm just X winging it that'll make sense,in a,oh that's still to come so I've cut out,a nose template scratch the line in it,there so I could fold it easier and that,so they fold on themselves and that's,kinda gonna be sitting there somewhere,taped it together with some masking tape,so it's stronger folded besides and,slapped some tape on the triangles the,nostril part clearly that's going to sit,about there like profile on go you could,see the shapes coming on nicely yeah so,I've attached it there was some extra,bits of masking tape some good old,masking tape and you could see now yeah,the structures taken shape,now I'm gonna go over that with some,paper Marty a whole bunch of layers to,make sure it's as strong as the rest of,the face because I don't want anybody,poking my nose and breaking it because,there's always some Halloween,tries to take a mask off so I,need to make sure this is strong and,that's the first layer on the nose done,it's still gonna take a few more lives,but yeah it's gonna take a couple of,bits before it's drop off the right,shape I want it to be how long is that,look good what I do need to do though is,quickly get some more paper on here and,get rid of this Hitler mustache it,doesn't help the fact that he's pure,white right so what I did here is a,measure the eyebrows out from the side,of the template of the actual eye I got,a better paper,I cut the shape out that I wanted and I,forgot that where the fold was going to,be and I picked some slits in it so like,I put a lot of slits in it to make it a,lot easier to bend and manipulate and,now I'm going to attach these to the,eyes right there I applied that but some,tip I'm happy we have that set and no,need to put some paper marchionne now I,browse is done and there's the other,library pack now some more fork and PVA,and paper reinforce our,and sculpt a little bit more because I,think maybe yeah I need to smooth that,into the head a little bit more yes that,is judge vinden in the background what,you're gonna do about that sue me I,still got to sculpt them from there into,the head so it it's more flush and,smoother I got stuck in last night as,you could see my eyebrows though it,seemed to have caved in a little bit,when they dried but I think you need to,make them bigger anyway yeah I've,decided to make them bigger so what I,did is I just got a piece of paper like,I made an eyebrow,so I did this make sure both the sheets,of paper you're using for each eye bro,of the same size,we back PayPal you back tape they'll,hold it in the middle it's like the same,size it is because I measured it,and take that onto the face now above,the original eyebrow I want to give it a,little bit more depth right usual tape,on there so you've tapped on to fit on,there taped on I've left that back,poking out and I've made sure this bit,runs flush into the face I think I'm,happy with how they are situated just,need to blend them into the head now,right usual,be very gentle with this bill,but it's looking pretty cool now is it,your boy I'm not even gonna attempt to,do the next eyebrow until this one's,actually dried yeah I'm happy it's,Thunder no bad just need to reinforce,them a little bit more and the nostrils,are far too big oh look I've got a tear,there turtle - tough balls,that's going to be of a field job it's,ok on that side for moms now before you,do anything before you cut these teeth,out I've got a tip for you reinforce the,teeth first,with extra layers from extra layers,before you actually cut the teeth out I,figured this out the hard way it makes,it stubbier and that makes the bottom,end be able to hold the weight at the,top half a little bit it's not the up,but as you can see have repaired but,tear and very happy with how it's turned,out now this is the expensive PVA glue,that I've been using okay,and this stuff is actually inferior,compared to this stuff this is some,cheap white stuff as well,I've been topping the other bought a lot,of this stuff PVA craft glue no fancy,labels and I only paid for green queens,for this bottle a whole liter of this,for for green creams from a shop called,the works best stuff is superior,to this stuff yeah don't get yourself,that,oh I'm not the dust about that box in,here we have ourselves a lovely bag of,clean,mmm-hmm just like mama used to make no I,think the only need a little bit right,about that much and this is air drying,clay so you always have to remember to,close the bloody bag up again that's,another thing I learnt the hard way a,long time ago,Oh boys and girls I can't believe this,right my camera froze while filming me,filling the eyebrows up with clay it,went switch off so I had to take the,battery out and put it back in again no,it won't power up this whole,thing won't power up as you can see I'm,already on YouTube trying to get myself,some tips see if I could fix,this some nut so for now we're gonna,call this a Tootsie Pop or video anyway,but we're going to call this a Tootsie,Pop video anyway because a whole long,have taken but as you can see here's the,eyebrows that I've added the clay to,I've just filled in the holes with the,clay sculpted it a little bit more and,this is how it's looking now I will try,my very very best to not add any more to,this until I have some way of filming it,so you could see the next process the,next stage of the process well anyway,thanks for watching I'm about to go and,cry over my dead camera stay tuned till,next time,Tata, today

How To Make A Jack Skellington Costume!

How To Make A Jack Skellington Costume!

hey guys what is up today I'm going to,show you how to make a Jack Skellington,costume cheers we're going to need first,up we had a pinstripe suit some of the,pinstripe mafia suit at Party City works,great you could also see if you could,find a pinstripe suit and a thrift shop,or something like that,now we couldn't find any pinstripe pants,so we're gonna show you how to make,those later in the video next up we've,got four pieces of black felt we're,gonna cut out and glue together with,this some foam glue for a nice thick,strong bat bowtie so here is the foam,glue and we got some white 3d paint for,the details of the bat type these are,optional but we picked up some cheap,white gloves for Jack's hands you could,do this or you could just paint your,hands white or you could get some,skeleton gloves that works too and,finally for the pants we just took a,little pair of black dress pants yes any,black pant would do we picked up some,white fabric paint and a normal white,paint pen for the stripes we're gonna,see which one works best but most likely,it'll be the fabric paint so here we,just got a broad line white paint pen,and here we got two white fabric pens,all right so first though we just cut,out a white piece of paper out for the,design I want it for the bow tie and,trace it onto one of the black pieces of,foam next we start to cut out the black,pieces of foam so you can see here,alright so now we got one of the layers,of the tie cut out and we're just gonna,cut out the next three layers and then,we're gonna glue them all together,another important part is to cut out the,bat head that will be going into the,middle of the tie alright once you got,the shape you want for the bat head slap,that on the felt and cut that out you,can cut it out two or three layers of it,if you want to to make it more 3d so,those are what the bat heads are gonna,look like cut out and that's what,they're going to look like on the bow,tie now we just need to take the 3d,paint and put the designs on yeah so,we're gonna do is glue these four pieces,of bowtie together and then,the back heads on,and that for the 3d paint alright next,we're gonna be doing the paint,all right next probably the most tedious,part we got to pinstripe the pants to,match the pin striped jacket so we're,going to show you to do that next,so the pinstripes on the jacket are,three eighths of an inch apart so we,have to try and recreate that on the,pants that's what we're doing with the,white pencil cran,we're going to mark off the 3/8 of an,inch and use a level to make sure they,are straight and now you're gonna draw,we're going good so far again one leg of,the pan almost done there to be a whole,pant there now we've officially got one,half of the front painted up pin striped,one laid three more sides to go the,front is done just got the back left to,do we've already gone through one marker,so I do recommend getting three white,fabric markers just in case at least so,yeah so after doing this for a bit we,recommend that you actually can find,pinstripe pants because doing this,pinstriping by yourself isn't actually,as fun as it sounds is it mother white,and that just a jacket so we're good I,also found this wicked Jack Skellington,Santa Claus hat,check out check it out it's optional so,we moved location to the table because,the ground is getting a bit harder than,these guy so pants are done being,pinstriped and once again a hundred,percent recommend getting pinstripe,pants that are already pinstripes,because that wasn't fun at all,next you're gonna want to take some sort,of pin or something or some sort of,device that will allow you to stick the,bow tie to your shirt,you want to take that you want to glue,that on the back there
