So, I’m a big fan of the obscure band The Residents. They’ve kept their identities hidden for over 30 years, although they’ve become known for their signature giant eyeball masks and tuxedos. So, this year, I decided to honor my obsession by creating my own Residents costume.
I started off with a 14″ plastic globe. I widened the hole to fit my head, cut out the eye hole, sanded it and painted it white. I attached a hard hat inside, had the iris airbrushed on, and created the veins by using caulk and then spray painting it red. I topped it off with a used tux and a top hat.
The top hat is stuffed with Styrofoam and held in place by 2 large bolts.
