The game for me costuming-wise is to see what I can scrounge to build accurate costumes on a budget.
I am going to attempt to spend as little as possible and have an approvable Mal done by Dragon Con 2015.

I found these rough weave Rayon/Silk/Acrylic pants at the Goodwill. I really like the texture and fit.
I think they'll take the extra color well.



These are the boots that Trooper PX used on his. I have the same ones.

Sewing some leather scraps together for the hood. The light piece will get some stain. The CRLs state "brown weathered black." To me the hood looks mostly black.

I have a small vac table. I'm going to pull a few molds of of this so that I can have some lip to attach the balls from the backside of the leather bands. I'll put some hot glue around the base to make the "weld".

It needs a leather lace and lots of grease and grime.


Yup, that piece is really light. It will get darker.

I pulled a few of the armband/leg band domes on my mini last night. The planishing marks on the domes turned out pretty well.

2 thick leather purses $1.00 each.
I'm just a little over $40.00 on this so far.

Really liking this build.

One suggestion for the hood would be to mist some medium brown on the black leather so it has a hint of brown when the light catches it. Pick one or two spots to go a smidge heavier with the brown for variation.

Nice stitch-work.

Thanx! The whole hood has been dusted with "Espresso" spray paint. I plan to dust it up with some more paint.
I had to cut most of the flowers out of the vambraces. the stitching will be covered.

My domes for the bands are ready.

Best way to weather the boots? Let's see if mowing the yard with them wrecks them as bad as it does my tennies.

Great idea! Very Happy

(Don't forget the piping down the top center of the foot.)

The teeth are ABS sludge that I had left over from my clone build. They are set from behind with small screws.

I need the beard for the first two days of DragonCon. I'll shave before the parade.

I'm sorry about your rancor.
