Well… sort of. The more robotic touches you want to have, the longer your costume will take to finish.
I love Halloween but tend to procrastinate on costume-making. This year, my wonderful sister bought me robot pants as a birthday present (Mitmunk’s bionic leggings, they are well-made and comfy and glorious and I cannot recommend them enough if you are in need of robot pants. No one paid me to say that). I decided to paint on a bionic arm to complement the pants.
Disclaimer: I’ve never used body paint before. It’s fun as heck but make sure you take the same precautions as regular paint (wear old clothes, put a tarp/towel down, etc.)
The colours I used were Wolfe silver and black, and Mehron storm cloud (darker grey). I used a Quo makeup sponge and dollar-store paintbrush to apply the paint.
I was planning to wear this to hand out candy to the kids in my neighbourhood: is the bloody edge too scary? I think it looked better before I added red paint.
Not bad for a first attempt, but I definitely want to play around more. Plus, I’ll have to figure out a face design to match. I’m going to channel my inner Major Kusanagi and see what I can come up with…
Happy (almost) Halloween!
