God of carnage

Not only vomiting—but violently projectile vomiting. I had two mandates: It should look as real as possible, and it had to cover the coffee table on set.

These two things were slightly at odds, as our coffee table was a 5-foot circle. I had to create realistic vomit that traveled more than 5 feet.

I started out by researching how other theatres have done this effect. This has obvious problems: The actress has to act with 2 to 3 pounds of moving liquid strapped to her, and after the effect her costume no longer fits properly. The second method used an off-stage pressurized system.

A tube is run from off-stage and hidden in the sofa. The actress has another tube rigged into her costume which she plugs into the one in the sofa.

After reviewing video of other productions using this system it was decided that this did not look realistic enough. The last method is to hide the rig in a pillow. While acting sick, the actress clutches the pillow to herself for comfort.

Of all three methods, I decided to pursue this option. The form was covered with a red pillow case to disguise it. I started out using a hot water bottle as my bladder, with a ball valve to keep it from activating early. This worked, but the actress could not get the distance we needed and activating the valve was tough.

We switched to a cork that the actress could pull, but the water bottle was still not giving us the distance we needed, no matter how hard the actress squeezed it.

This problem was solved by my assistant, Nicole Gaignat. She noticed that with the water bottle the vomit was directed into the corners of the bag and not out of the spout. We switched to a bota bag water skin and we were able to get far more distance than we needed.

This allowed the actress to control the distance, and not have to squeeze with all of her might. For vomit, we ruled out the obvious pea soup, oatmeal, apple sauce as they all failed the cleanup test.

Some people have used a laundry detergent base. This is a bad idea. It can get in your mouth and eyes. We went with boiled corn starch. It had a nice controllable thickness, a good milky color, and it cleaned off costumes like a dream. We experimented with thicknesses and found that a vegetable oil consistency worked best.

For chunks I ground pieces of upholstery foam in a blender. We made two three-gallon batches of vomit a week, and the rig released about a liter and a half each time.The God Murders  The God Murders.
