    The finishing line is nearly in sight (well, for the mask that is)!!
    Have applied the base colour with pax paint and put in some subtle shading with rubber mask grease. I applied a layer of KY jelly to give it a glossy sweat sheen.

    Still haven't found the right contact lenses, most of the ones available are too red, the search continues.

    Hoping to apply this baby sometime in the next week.

    Just researched on the net mainly, bought "The Prop Builders handbook" too, very useful.

    This project is so fantastically disgusting. I LOVE IT! Even down to the nasty sacks hanging under the chin. WELL DONE!

    Still waiting on robes and need to finish the hands myself, a little sidetracked by work.

    Wanted it to be ready for Invasion Belfast in October so have plenty of time.

    Was actually being modeled by Jude from Clothears costumes but it does fit me very well too.

    The end is nearly in sight, have finished the gloves.



    Will be getting these contacts, they are the closest match that I could find without having to get expensive custom made ones.



    Still need to source a pair of boots, most close matches are womens and not available in size 10. Something like this in grey, brown or black would do.
