For this spookiest Orlok costume, we bought the mask and hands from a professional mask company (that was the starting point). We loved the mask but had no idea what to dress him in. This is a Silicone mask and hands made to fit your body. We looked on the net and found a pattern for a pirate costume and a vampire pattern for the cape. After deciding the costume then the color – and what better color than ‘black’ on Halloween!.
This was sewn together by my wife and took about 2 weeks to gather supplies and put together. For the shoes, I bought 2 pair of a high sole boot and cut the sole off of one pair and glued/screwed to the the other to get about 1 1.2″ in taller stance. I wore white contacts and Teeth from FX Fangs to finish off the spookiest Orlok costume. Want to scare someone…mTHIS IS THE OUTFIT!!!
