I got a bit of a late start on my costume this year, but luckily my friend Marc & I had already decided on Evil Dead 2 last Halloween while creating our They Live costumes. I’ve been wanting to try and recreate a version of these hats from a painting I did a while back, so it was a great excuse to give it a shot! I went as the cabin, Marc went as Necronomicon, and we bloodied up my husband to play Ash.
Marc created the foam-core structure (complete with a light & switch), while I built up the structure of a vintage hat and painted the cabin. Add a hot glue gun, tiny trees, a matchbox car, tease up the hair, and Presto!
Marc built his book with a skull mask as a base.. Yep, it actually opens & closes!
Marc did Wes’ blood, while I used that cheap haircolor/spray you can get at a Halloween shop (it actually worked, surprisingly!) to spray his hair dark (he’s normally a redhead)
As a side note, the next day I woke up and found this next to my bed. :)
