Halloween Costume Progress

Hey y’all!

I’ve been posting some pictures on slack, but I figured I could consolidate my Halloween 2021 costume progress in a thread here for better continuity and posterity.

There are quite a few parts to it, and I am super excited to make it all come together!


Step one required acquisition and dissection of several dolls. I then melted and mangled the ends to make them look more fleshy instead of ball-and-socket-doll-joint-y.

I accomplished this by melting the plastic with the hot air from an SMD-repair tool and pushing and pulling the melted plastic with tweezers. I had to hacksaw some of the more fleshy plastic on some of the legs to break them up more, and I repurposed unused torsos and pelvises to fill in the gaps on some of the heads and other torsos.

Step two was to make the mangled fleshy mounds into mangled bloody mounds. I haven’t done a “horror” costume in a while- I’m not sure if I ever have? Anyhow, this is exciting.


Looks like the stuff of nightmares. Great job!

Okay that is awesome. Time for the tree to get some revenge.
