Man of Action
I made a Kuato costume (from Total Recall) for Halloween this year. It was the first time I tried making something like this, so I documented some of the progress.
First off, I layered Sculpy on to the face and body of a generic baby doll. Here I am sculpting the mouth area in some bitchin turtle pants.
First pass of the face
The mostly finished head before I painted it.
A fairly sizable jump in progress here. His body was cut and molded in a few places. Fingers were cut, arm was replaced.
I painted things in layers, starting with the blood vessels, then any redder areas. Finally lightly brushed over the whole thing to lighten it up and match my skin tone.
Gloss coat and the added hair. You can see the cut fingers on his left hand.
He’s sewn to an elastic band that will go around my waist.
Attached and out in the wild.
I won a Scariest Costume award for the “demon baby” costume.
Now, something not Kuato related, I gave myself a strict hour to speed sculpt a a face. Can you recognize him? If not, the answer is in the tags for this post.
First, that costume is freakin’amazing. So was Alicia’s.
Second, I immediately recognized Trejo. Really impressive for an hour.
Dayum, dude! Didn’t recognize Trejo (probably because I’ve never heard of him) but Kuato is just- bwah!! Looks great!

My renders always tend to be a little weak, so I spent some time working on some studio lighting in Max.
I didn’t push the proportions enough. It ended up looking more like Wario.
I imagine this as a fat alien kid who’s pouting because he didn’t get his quagnar rinds.
He’s just tasting the text a little.
A bit of a creeper.
Practicing expressive faces. Started from a sphere, as seems to be the tradition for me.
From Zelda: WInd Waker. A request.
From Nightmare Before Christmas Always trying something new, even when they don’t work out that well.
A scrab from Oddworld. Does something with no arms really need pectorals?
