(07/10/2000•18:04) Need advice for a costume [edit]Archive Message 
by Dr. Jekyl

I'm trying to make a Dr. Jekyl/Mr Hyde costume. There aren't a lot of references to that on the web. I'm trying to make something similar to the one in the Backstreet Boys video. I'd appreciate some help. Thanx.

Well, first get some paper, cut out scale shapes for the 'hidious' side of Dr. Jekyl. Paint them greenish bluish and that's it. Next, get a Phantom of the Opera mask. They should sell it in costume stores, get the kind that covers half of your face. This will be the hidious side of you face. Take some glue and put a generous amount of it on the mask. Take your fingers and spread it out to add some demension. Make all sorts of wierd shapes or stuff like that on it. Allow it to dry. After it dries, get some paint of any kind, I would prefer acrylic. Paint the mask a bluish green color making the details like, I don't know, anything you want. Than, get your scales you made earlier, glue it on in different places. Let all that dry. After all that dries, get some satin varnish, paint sealer to make it shiny. You can add more stuff if you want, when you wear the mask, you could put some water on it to make it shinier and more gross. Next, you need some glasses, you could use your own if you have some. Or you could make your own by twisting wire into shape with pliers.

Next, you need a hat and a suit, than some nails to paint bluish green,those can be fake girly nails, you can use the leftover acrylic to paint those. That's it! If you want you could take some black shoes and a cane along with you!

Good luck making your costume!

PS: Please respond!!!!!!!!

Good Luck,

I forgot something, for the mask, you can get a masquerade mask that they sell in craft stores. You can cut than in half to your desired shape.
