Homemade Pinhead from Hellraiser Costume
This costume was made using black vinyl (machine stitched).
Head: First wash your face with soap and water. Then put latex bald (trimmed sideburns) applying several layers of liquid latex on face. Let dry 10 minutes between coats. Cut lines with scissors being careful.
Stick nails at intersections with contact cement. This type of glue needs 30 seconds until the nail stays straight. Paint the black lines with a fine brush. For more realism add a little red in the lines. White make-up the rest of the face (including ears and neck)… Careful not to paint white the black lines.
Finally give a shade of purple in the eye sockets.
This costume won the first place in a costumes match on Halloween Night.
