Bust Rod Halloween

DSC01407 I was Bust Rod from Forbidden Zone for Halloween this year. Click here to see the Flickr set of my costume creation process.

You can find more information on my Forbidden Zone obsession here. While this mask looks more like an alligator than a frog, I was limited by the amount of cardboard at my disposal, and couldn’t make the mouth any wider. My eventual goal is to make a nearly exact replica of the mask from the movie, but that will involve cheesecloth, chickenwire, and more time than I currently have at my disposal.

Some folks actually knew who I was this year, which is better than last year when no one realized that I was Teen Wolf. [Damn kids.]

  1. Nice job on the costume. I’m sorry you didn’t get a chance to read. I should have taken the reigns as MC but I was taken aback at how difficult was. I couldn’t remember any of the stuff I wanted to say. Anyhow Nick was funny as Hell doing a Cotton Mather cabaret routine. I’ll be posting the video soon.

  2. congrats!
    your costume was the most creative i’ve seen this year, especially considering the details & craftsmanship involved.
    was good seeing you.
    still recovering from those 2 nights. good times!
