Here is my Bird King of Hell costume! I love Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights and I love the Bird King in the third panel. I know no one gets it. That’s fine. It was pretty much for my amusement alone. Head is made of paper mache. I painted the stripe on the blue shirt and I cut a sheet into a sort of skirt-thing. I’m kinda sad I didn’t score a Ken doll at the thrift store today but its not a big issue. Maybe later I’ll add to the costume: naked guy with birds flying outa his butt, some gloves, vase shoes, a chair…
Hah love the originality. That painting is a trip, I remember it definitely standing out in my art history class in college.
Hilarious! A+++ for originality and craftsmanship!!
that’s the best bosch bird king mask I’ve ever seen!
Oh, I get it. And I love it! Totally fantastic, really, really excellent idea & execution.
THIS IS AMAZING! It’s turned out great and that painting is such a cool and trippy inspiration.
Fantastic job! I love the weirdness of that painting, but would never have thought to create a costume from it.
Lol! Isn’t it the only one?
Thank so much, Magpie!
Thanks so much! It was a labor of love. Lol
Thanks! Yeah it was a strange decision. I’ve wanted to make something from it for a long time.
