Wasteland Marauders Costume WIP (pic heavy)

Post by taj » Mon Mar 23, 2009 7:32 am

This is not the first picture taken, but it kinda defines the costume for me, yeah its me... using a socket set on a denim half jacket! (nothing is complete but the mask) The challenge for me, was to make 'pink' look rough and warrior-like. For everyone it was 'keep it under $150'

Image

and now onto the other picts Pants so far..
Before I started, all shiny and clean..
Image
Back (all scales are hand sewn on with no 'tip' glueing at this point)
Image
Image
Front

Image

Denim half jacket so far

When I first started just after removing right sleeve
Image
after bleaching and terra cotta textile paint
Image
There are so many more steps so far in the jacket, but lets skip to the 'right now' pic
Image

My Mask... I call it 'Mardi Gras gone really really bad'

heres the start was a 'phantom' mask I stripped the stuff off of and cut using a dremel
Image
more 'in progress'
Image
aaaaaand the finished mask!
Image
Image
Image


I have other stuff to finish before I move onto Aurra Sing, but, I wanted you to see what Im up to, and yeah, I can costume

so far Im about 39 hours into it, using stuff I already had, and junk we scrounged, the expenditures have been for paint and fasteners, oh and the base mask

Im not able to work much on it for the next couple of weeks, but Im going to have it done by the end of April, so I can start the Fem Gambit
