Ben Nye T-shirt idea

Anyone, who knows anything about Hallowe'en make-up and/or theatrical make-up would hopefully be able to relate to this T-shirt. I thought of it a while ago, but I just finished painting it today. It's a bit messy. I use a stenciling method and then fill in the gaps.
 It's a one of a kind!

Papier Maché Battle Axe

This is the beginning of the papier maché over the cardboard base. For the handle I used an old branch leftover from when we had the half dead apple tree in our backyard chopped down.

Here is the papier maché finished.

I coated it in primer, made by mixing Gesso with black acrylic.

I spray painted it with "chrome" silver Krylon it looked like it was made of tin foil.

I used watered down black acrylic, to weather the axe. I also stuck in some metal studs meant for leather to look like rivets.

I wrapped some leather strips all around the handle to bulk it up a bit. Now it's finished.

Bottom Half of the Costume

 This is how the bottom half of the Minotaur costume will look. I'm adapting it from the costume  here
And yes....I am in the process of losing weight.
