This is my costume for Halloween 2013. I decide to become a taxidermy deer head on a hunting wall.
Because that's horrific for me, I hate that. The fact that I'm a human (yes I am, I promise :D ) trying to be the deer killed by a human is kinda strange. Isn't it? Being a deer is so cute. But being a dead deer on a wall is sad and creepy.
▲ How I archieve this?
I made everything by myself. First, the antlers with "papier-maché" and I fixed it on a headband. Than, the plinth for my neck, with paper and paint. The longer thing to do was the make-up of course. I tried to make it more realistic as possible with my big lenses and all the details. I'm wearing white clothes to match the wall behind me. The aim is to highlight my head as if I'm a real trophy! Next to me, there were other animals heads and stuff that could probably be on a real "hunting wall". This costume is a real DIY cause I didn't buy anything!
Have a great Halloween :-)
