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!
