Left 4 Dead Smoker by LordSalsaVerde Left 4 Dead Smoker by LordSalsaVerde
Wore this during A-Kon and all I can say is that while it was a bit inconvenient at times, it was a lot of fun. I managed to do the smoker walk, pose and stare when I was walking from one location to another and managed to get a pretty good response. While I'm meaning to upgrade this version a bit, I'm pretty satisfied how it turned out.

Character: Smoker
Series: Left 4 Dead

Thank you! :D The main structure of the tongue was built using foam. I then used a hot glue gun to create "tongue ridges" and then painted the whole thing using liquid latex mixed with purple acrylic paint. Add a little blood and a little dirt here and there and there you go.

First up, awesome stuff! Following you on here and on Facebook now.

Anyway, I've been wanting to do something like this for *quite* a long time, but I've never really known where to start on any of this zombie makeup stuff. What sorts of things did you do for the tumors and the tongue?

And speaking of which, bloody awesome job on the tongue!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!

Well its actually a lot simpler than it looks. The tumors are Styrofoam balls of various sizes cut in half and then held to the skin and connected to one another with toilet paper and liquid latex mixed with black acrylic paint. There are various layers the help maintain it to the skin and give it that growth sprouting from the skin look. The tongue is foam with some of the ridges made with hot glue and then painted with liquid latex and purple acrylic paint.

Thanks again!
