I believe mid august is as good a time as any to start on a halloween costume. Or at least begin brainstorming.
So, so those of you that watch the Ventures will know who Dr. Henry Killinger is. For those that don't know, heres some pictures.
Henry and his magic murder bag:
And I thought the figure gave a good overall few of his costume:
Edit: I want to make a somewhat female version of this getup...I want to make he jacket conform to a female figure, and to have a skirt beneath it much like the pictures here:http://nomadicotaku.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/1391352.jpghttp://www.sonymusic.co.jp/Animation/blood-tv/introduction/chara/chara_saya2.gif
I wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions for certain elements of this costume.
If you know of a coat tutorial similar to the one shown here that would be great.
I'll probably do a search for a bag tutorial for something similar to this, but if anyone knows one of one off the top of their head, I'd appreciate a link.
The mask make prove somewhat difficult for me. I dont want to be completely flat. I want it kind of protruding out like it is for the cartoon and figurine. I would probably use a white mask as a base from a crafts store. Any suggestions on how to build up a relatively smooth surface that I can paint on?
Also the slippers simply thrill me. XD I've seen some cute slipper tutorials on here that I will definitely look more in depth to, but if you are aware of one more suited for my purpose, send it my way please.
And if anything else catches your eye, feel free to let me know. I tend to be a bit self conscious for costumes as I stroll to class in college, but I feel that I must make an exception for this wonderful man. XD And now to search for tutorials *disapears*
