I heard somewhere that his wife helps to make the costumes aswell.

Nah, you're right.

She's a wardrobe assistant or something like that after all so she can do a lot. There's a video where she fixes Amen's shoe, so she might helps with corrections and stuff.
Woha! :shock:
So Lordi´s wife is also a talented costume maker^^
I didn´t know this.
Thanks for the info.

Where is that video?

Dude, you should go with normal latex. Way cheaper and better if you're doing simple costume parts.

Way different when it comes to prosthetics... :D

I'm thinking about putting together some costumes... nothing like Lordi of course, just simple clothes with bits added on and stuff. I've already got a punk-zombie, im thinking about making a werewolf style one. All kitted out and no where to haunt

a large pot of latex could make one possibly two costumes costing £26 pounds including postage and packing and then, the bits to make it foam latex cost 3 pound for the foaming agent and a fiver for the other two ingrediants :D id only make the mask from the foam lol i could never afford to make it all from foam latex lol can only just affor the plain latex :S

I'm guessing you can order it off the net for a reasonable price, along with the right kind of clay for sculpting it? And what would you recommend for making reusable molds? I'm faking it with silicon caulking mixed with camp fire fluid. (You do what you gotta).

I also have a question about attaching hair to masks - how? Do you make a mask that covers the whole head and then attach the hair or do you make the facial part of the mask and attach the hair to the forehead (or wherever its supposed to go)? PM me if its too long and tedious to make other monsterboarders suffer through.

Plaster, dear friend, PLASTER! If you can find a good plaster brand in the closest hobby store you're lucky as @#% (like me! :wink:).

Attatching hair to masks, eh? I haven't done it - yet - but I kinda know how to do it. You have to punch every hair in the mask you're doing with some kind of needle together some kind of glue. It sounds REALLY boring to me, so I will try to avoid hair-needing masks for a good while!

I think I need a little more clarification so I'll PM you and not bore the rest of the thread to death. I also think I'll only make a half mask because I'm not so masochistic to spend weeks putting hairs on strand by strand. Makes my wonder how much work went into the band's masks and admire Mr. Lordi's devotion to the whole process.

grey clay it the best for the mask making and i was told about another way to make foam latex masks and thats to foam the latex with thickener and a mixer and then layer the latex. in other words, make one layer at a time :D tomorrow i start a new costume its taken me about a 4month to design and it should be finnished in a week or twos time :D i might take pictures in the process or make a video that shows how its all done just for the lordi fans on this forum :D

Its a long way off yet, but I'll take pictures of planning sketches and the supplies as they're gathered gathered. The before and after of the dress should be fun. Its like a reverse make-over show: "Take this boring, tacky wedding dress and make it into a gown worthy of a vampire lady!"

On a related note did Mr. Lordi do the sewing for the capes, dresses, jackets, etc? If he did, I have even more admiration for the guy.

You can get kits from this website - they're expensive but fully professional - they send materials to professional companies, including the (I'm guessing) now defunct Morbid Industries.

I think the best (= cheapest) way to do things is to 'practice' with cheaper materials. You can get liquid latex and other stuff from normal prank shops too. For example adding toilet paper to the liquid latex allows you to make different kinds of shapes and doesn't cost you $75. Buying fully professional products doen't make anyone fully professional.

True, true, but for all I know there might be experienced costume makers lurking about. :lol: I, frankly, daren't try that sort of thing with any materials, my hands are too clumsy :P

From what I know, Mr. Lordi, with the help of his wife does all the costumes. The other bandmembers pitch in ideas, concepts, Mr. Lordi creates them. Same with Awa costume :wink:

The only one which was not made by Mr. Lordi, was the Costume of lordi's former bass player Magnum. It was built by Magnum himself.
