That is amazing.

 

Which fruit are you going to paint your face as? Or are you going to do some fake blood & viscera?

I never thought of painting my face but now its all i can think about!

i was going to use fake blood but really fruit head has to be done the idea is too good!

Genuinely cannot wait to see the finished product :D

 

How did you make the caterpillar?

Cheers!

The caterpillar is a headband with a wire attached either side. The body is a series of cardboard circles glued together for width then felt is stuck on. Each disk has a hole in the middle fir the wire. The head is oval cardboard shapes. The feet are tucked into where the green felt strips meet. The felt is stuck using fabric glue and the green pompom hides the wire, as does the head. 
here are some build photos:

  • Jonnysaxc changed the title to Halloween hungry caterpillar *Updated!*

Yes, its rock solid, i wanted a much smoother look and this needs more thought

i have a red swim cap over my “hair “ (im balding big tine) and that works better

i added red crepe paper over the eyes to better disguise the holes but vision goes so much that it woukd be same without eyes

if i did this again id say the apple head is almost more important yhan the caterpillar because as soon as we see anything face like we see a face i

 

i really enjoyed the kind feedback

Why don't you make the fruit half a watermelon:

then you can have loads of black dots randomly scattered with only two of them being the actual eyes.

Personally as a Halloween costume I think it's perfect, it's just the right balance of the cute caterpillar and an absolutely terrifying serial killer's face

 

I also showed it to a friend and he immediately asked if you make them to order :D

That is an excellent idea
