Pinhead scared audiences when he first appeared in the horror movie "Hellraiser" in 1987. Since then, many costumes in his likeness have appeared to terrify trick-or-treaters and visitors to haunted houses. The Pinhead costume is time-consuming because you will need to position and glue many nails in place. You will also need time to allow the glue to set. However, the time will be worth it when you see the horrified looks on people's faces as you open the door.
Things You'll Need
- Plastic nails
- Super glue
- Thin sheets of rubber
- Bald head wig
- Costume makeup
- Makeup sponge
- Makeup brush
- Latex glue
- Black long-sleeve shirt
- Black pants
- Black boots
Get dressed. Put on the black boots, pants and shirt. It would be difficult to get dressed after you have the nails glued on.
Cut up little squares of thin pieces of plastic to resemble nails. You can cut up an old Halloween mask if you can't find any suitable plastic at the craft store.
Glue the plastic nails to the bald head wig using super glue. You can use real nails, but only if you sand down the tips so they don't hurt you or others.
Put on the bald head wig while the glue dries.
Paint your face, head and neck with white costume paint. Use a sponge to add dark circles around your eyes with a little black makeup.
Use the ruler to help you paint your face with red vertical and horizontal lines with your makeup brush. They should be 1 inch apart. You may want to ask a friend to help you draw lines on the back of your head.
Glue the nails on your face using latex glue. Place them where the lines intersect. Allow the glue to dry.
Cover your hands with white paint as well.
