This year we decided to do the Psycho costume from the classic movie with Anthony Perkins! I wanted Kevin to design me a shower to wear with my head still visible, and he would be son dressed as the mother-psycho-killer. We also like the idea to be black and white, so we took a lot of photos in black and white as well.

Kevin constructed my shower by spray painting a hula hoop silver and attaching pvc piping to it. I wore a medical brace around my waist and the piping, which in turn held up the curtain. Kevin constructed the shower head using a kitchen sink strainer and streamers. I used 2 shower curtains hooked on by plastic shower hooks, and clipped them together.

I wore a white sweater underneath and pinned it low so it looked like I was naked. I did my make-up black and white and wore a white-blond wig to look like Janet Leigh. We used fake blood on the outside of the curtain.

Kevin wore a dress over his regular clothes, and old lady wig, fake blood on the dress, and black and white make-up. He also wielded a fake knife.

Coolest Shower Scene from Psycho Costume 2

Homemade Shower Scene from Psycho Costume

Homemade Shower Scene from Psycho Costume

The shower frame is made from 1/2" PVC pipe. The shower head is made from the top of a 2 liter soda bottle and the lid to a package of Laughing Cow cheese, all spray painted silver. The "water" is made from the iridescent strips used in gift baskets. The shower curtain and rings came from the dollar store.

It's hard to see in the picture but the inside of the shower curtain is covered in fake blood spray. I sprayed some on my hand and made bloody hand prints. I cut slits in the shower curtain and attached a plastic knife by reinforcing the curtain on the inside with clear packing tape, inserting the knife halfway through and then taping the knife tip to the inside.

The shower rests on my shoulders by straps made from clear packing tape. I would've gelled my hair to make it look wet but I was at work and so had to make do with a shower cap.
