A couple of years ago, Scott Holden made, in my opinion, one of the greatest Halloween costumes of all time. It required clay sculpting, welding, sewing, air brushing, and a ton of time and effort, but you cannot deny the results. If I owned this costume I would wear it to work every single day.
Here is a link to Scott’s step-by-step documentation on how he built the costume from start to finish, with pictures every step of the way. Very inspirational for anyone who enjoys making their own costumes.
