Just have to say I'm very impressed by everyone's costumes so far. They are all very good!
And THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who posted any kind of help - it all came in handy!
Here is my shot at it:http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y62/Fender117/Picture055.jpghttp://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y62/Fender117/Picture056.jpg
The mask is the 3-nylon method that was mentioned earlier in the thread. I cut small eye-holes in the black layer and they are barely or not even visible. I photoshopped the design, printed it, and used a box cutter to make it into a stencil, I then stretched the mask over a clipboard, using binder-clips to stretch it out. Then I just filled it in with a sharpie. This works quite well if you don't have someone else to draw it for you.
I got the hat, scarf, trench coat and the dark purple/navy-blue pinstripe suit (not visible) at Value Village/Savers. The purple ribbon for the hat was from Michael's, an arts/crafts supply store.
I had old black leather gloves and black dress shoes that are similar enough to his boots to work. The pants will be over them all the time anyway!
I will definitely find a better trench coat, boots, and spend more time on the mask for next Halloween but, still being in highschool, my budget was quite small this year (Everything was about $60). Although, I am pleased how everything came together
That looks awesome! Lovin the ink blot design. Now everywhere you go you're gonna be seeing a dog with its head split open. Lol.
