    Default Sweeney Todd Costume Help

    The wife & I have already decided that we're going as the Tim Burton version o' Sweeney Todd & Mrs. Lovett. I'm have a hard time trying to find fake/replica/prop straight razors. Does anyone know of someplace online that sells 'em? Help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Fiyero. I've seen those, but I was hoping to not spend quite as much. The cheaper the better.



    And hello, jaychrisaraneta.

    I would suggest looking up on Ebay. I found a beauty of a straight edge for only $7.50!

    Awesome. Is it a prop/does it have a fake blade? You wouldn't have the link, would you? I'll peruse Ebay & see what I come up with.

    if you know anyone with a grinder or you don't mind spending the time sanding with a sharpening stone (with a little mineral oil on it held more-or-less perpendicular to the blade) a real straight razor dulled so it will no longer cut will always be much prettier and more effective prop. I have also heard of people using PVC glue or epoxy in a really fine bead to cover the sharp part of the blade. using either method be sure to check your blade against paper and then when it cant cut that try drawing it across a inflated balloon to make sure you've rounded off or covered all the sharp parts. I say go with the real thing.

    Thanks. I'll probably have to try one of those.

    I belive I have also seen one that has a pump at the handle to squeeze out blood from the blade. Dont know where to find it though but it would be really cool. I think I saw Ozzy Ozbourne with it.
    Can you stake my heart?
