The shirt is made of an off-white fine
knitted fabric (cotton jersey knit).
The leggings are made of a firm off-white
cotton fabric, with just enough stretch to be
The cloak is made out of
an old IKEA blanket.
The boots are real leather, I bought
them second hand. The shinguards,
pouches and belt are all fully made of real
leather (shinguards are 4 layers of thick
leather with soft thin leather wrapped
around them. The pouches are 2 layers;
one of firm
thin leahter and the outer layer a
softer thin leather). The holster is made of
worbla with soft thin leather wrapped
around it. All the leather items have been
painted with leather dye in a bone/natural
colour. All painted with an airbrush for a
clean and even finish.
The armbands are firm thin
cardboard rings with elastic glued on them
on the inside, so they stay up around the
arms. Around the cardboard rings foam is
glued on. In the foam I made some vertical
ridges, evenly spread around the armband.
The armbands were sprayed silver.
The hairpiece exists of 5 pieces of
about 25 to 30 cm long. They are basically
wire with dark brown felt wrapped and
glued around them and then hair
extensions in my haircolour wrapped and
glued around the felt.
