Set up a fan and use an appropriate vapor mask- I'm confident that burning polystyrene is bad to breath. One way to check is to hold the head up to a light, or to put a flashlight on the inside and look for light spots. The angler part is made from simple plastic rod (from Home Depot) with functioning LED light bulb attached to it. I was also concerned that jokers would walk away with my fins if they were only attached with velcro (which was a legitimate concern since I was headed to a night club with this thing). The dimensions of this bottom armature were taken from the actual size of the fish's head that was already built.

Sorry about that, it’s just that this anglerfish hat looks like something straight out of one of our nightmares. The reel is glued to the inside of the suit with spray foam adhesive and passes a cable through a small hole right above the arm hole. The poly foam body was glued on the inside of the head and I left a small section in the back unglued to make it easier to get in and out of. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy.When the end of the bunch of cables is close enough to the skin so that it gets stiff, tap the end of the cables until they sit flush with the skin. For a more dimensional touch, I installed a second, smaller hemisphere painted black inside the main eye. I wanted to be able to reach through the arm holes an control the fins freely with my hands but I had to make sure that i would not drop them and loose them. The black poly-spandex jumpsuit zips up the front and is printed with an all-over pattern of fish scales. The eyes are acrylic hemispheres and are simple tacked on temporarily to help me understand the look of the fish.

I started with a few sketches to work out the design and figure out what this thing was going to look like. I then bent two pieces of 1/2" electrical conduit piping into the shape of the interior profile of the head. He could secretly take candy inside costume or actually eat it , and get fatter and bigger Angler Fish. I figured i couldn't sculpt the whole fish out of paper mache, so I cut some cardboard pieces to mold to the shape of the fish that I wanted. In the end of each tube will go an LED bulb whose light will bend through the cables and exit through the pores of the fish's skin.

Despite looking like the aquatic death-beast that haunts your nightmares, it’s actually made out of soft materials and fits comfortably on your head. If you follow this instructable, perhaps you can skip the design phase and move straight to building. After the wiring is completed and tested to make sure everything is working right, bundle everything with electrical tape to keep things organized. The extra lights we balled up and ran down the center antennae for the bright Angler bulb in front of that sinister mouth.

Eventually the pores in the poly foam close and you can get a nice gloss surface- which was important for the fishy quality I wanted from the skin.

When was satisfied with the positioning of the body, the 2 pieces were glued together using spray foam adhesive. Have you ever seen pictures of angler fish taken by marine biologists who have delved into the depths of the ocean?

You can also use spray foam adhesive- it's faster and very strong but it's expensive and I found it difficult to work cleanly with.The translucent plastic ball was glued to the end of the of the ski pole and connected by a small poly foam cone that helps to taper the shapes together. I cut strips of poly foam about 3 inches wide and backed each seam from the inside, adhering the strips with spray adhesive. We decided to add some bioluminescence by hot gluing on some Christmas low voltage lights down the spine and rib areas. Some can grow up to three feet long and weigh up to one hundred pounds (that tops the list of Things You Don't Want to See While Scuba Diving). By gluing the mats together edge to edge using contact cement I was able to form the skull of the fish around the polystyrene armature.
