    My "Survivor" Rupert Halloween costume

    I didn't see a thread for this, but wanted to share my artwork. This is my homemade costume for this year's Halloween, it's Rupert from Survivor: Pearl Islands, Survivor All Stars, Survivor: Heroes vs Villians, and very briefly Survivor: Blood vs Water.

    https://imgur.com/gallery/rlxQj

    Here's a quick rundown of how I did it:

    Beard: Fake moss

    Necklace:
    • Rose wire for the frame
    • Wixy Stix for the colored threads
    • Coins are just tracing of actual coins, traced onto cardboard, and painted gold

    Torch:
    • The bamboo pole and corn husks come from a decorative scarecrow
    • The "cup" is parts from two candelabras, hacksawed, painted tan and put back together
    • The nameplate is a piece of scrap wood, painted to look weathered.
    • The blue skulls and shark teeth are both bead strings
    • The flame is three pieces of cardboard - one for each color, stacked on top of each other.
    • For the base, I drilled a hole into a block of wood, inserted the pole, and nailed/glued it down. Then, I nailed some planks to it to make a cross shape. Cover with brown felt and it looks like it's just terrain.

    Masterchef 5: Cutting Board Game Hunters: Second to Last
    Survivor: San Juan Del Sur - 200k DNA - Pool Winner; Kaoh Rong - Fourth Place
    Hell's Kitchen 7 - The Boulevard of Frozen Dreams - Wooden Pitchfork

    That was AWESOME! And I think I'd have "gotten it" without any description. Who else would show up with a torch, a tie-dye shirt and a scruffy beard?

    One of my Facebook friends has a married daughter with twin sons (they're about 8). They're all big Harry Potter fans, so they've got costumes as Moaning Myrtle, and Fred and George Weasley. I love it!

    Haha, thanks! I did try it out at a costume party - no one could place it as Rupert, but between the torch, and the beard that looked like I'd been stranded on an island for 39 days, they figured out I was someone from Survivor.

    I love it! I would have gotten it but Rupert is my all time fave so it would have been easy.

    Looking good! You look just like him, I'd have gotten it right away, but I am a Survivor super fan, so I guess it's not too surprising the general public didn't pin it down

    The tie-dye shirt would've been a dead giveaway for which Survivor. Great job!!
