Need to make some lungs for my costume. Not sure how to go about making some decent looking ones. Intestines are easy, lungs not so much.

...try polystyrene, seal it with PVA, and then "sculpting" a lung-y texture over it before painting? Glueing a layer of foam/sponge over it might work, it'll give you that slightly bubbly, porous texture. And then yeah, paint it all up :3

You could get two of those big carwashing sponges, cut to shape and dye them. Then cut the ribbed part of a petrol syphon for the trachea

Be careful or what you spay or paint onto foam. It can "eat" away at it.

Personally, I would steal the plastic lungs from those manniquens that you can take the organs out of...I think there's one at Science Alive...

Ok, maybe not. I like the sponge idea. I would get some ridged tubing for the trachea Very Happy

He's a lazy poster so I'll answer for him:

We did car washing sponges, half painted them with fabric paint (didn't eat away at it or nothin') and will be splashing some fake blood on it today. You can't really see the trachea so we didn't bother... For ribs we bought some backing rod (kind of like soft polystyrene in flexible rod form!) and he's painted them an ivory colour.

I'm gonna see if my tuplast works on the sponges to make blisters, mwahaha.

Thanks for all your ideas >.<
