Pinhead

Pinhead is main villain and leader of the Cenobites from the Hellraiser film series, based on the book The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. While there are Pinhead masks for sale, I believe none of them do true justice to the character and that he is best shown through make-up. Listed here are the basic requirements, but for little details and how to actually create Pinhead’s face I highly recommend watching this excellent Pinhead make-up tutorial

DIO From Stardust Crusaders

Considered one of the most iconic (and quotable) villains of modern times, DIO is a ruthless vampire and is the main villain of the whole JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series. This guide is based on his appearance in Part 3, Stardust Crusaders. A flamboyant but chiseled beast, DIO starts the series as an abused British brat. However, after securing the Stone Mask, he gains immortality as a vampire. DIO continues to torment the Joestar family nearly a century later, and his actions affect the whole franchise. Be sure to cut DIO’s jacket to proper size (about ribcage level) and cut a whole for his bulge in his pants. Red Cape optional. Use the green fabric to make DIO’s two hanging belts as well as the hearts on his headband, belt, and knees. Don’t forget the three dots on DIO’s left earlobe,
