The only thing I can see is that you need to really darken your boot wraps and darken your trousers a little. Otherwise, it looks good. Are you going to make a shillelagh to go with it?

Also, if I might make a suggestion, you need to wax your rain slicker. I'd suggest something like otter wax. Just rub it over the slicker and then use a hair drier to melt it in. It'll give the slicker a waterproof look. (By rain slicker, I mean the cape thing.)

Thanks for the suggestions!

Poncho was waxed but lighting plays tricks. Take a look at the closeup photo that shows he buckle details. It’s quite shiny.

I agree on coloring. I’ve got new boots coming from Gio and once no have those in hand I’m going to get the coloring of the pants and wraps all lined up.

I guess you didn’t scroll down through my pics because I’ve already made the shillelagh. I have to wrap the handle in leather still but it’s done. Credit goes to Woodchuck for a job well done.

This costume looks great. Did you have someone make it for you or did you make it yourself? Is the inner tunic a knit wool material? Is the middle piece leather? If so what kind?

Inner tunic is similar to a knit wool, it not quite. It was a found blanket from target that just had the right texture.

By “middle piece”if you mean the rain slicker that’s a faux leather fabric found at Joanns. All heavily modified.

I'm looking for an actual knit fabric from Joann's, but good call on the faux leather. My wife actually has a jacket pattern for that style of jacket (the leather bit), so I'm set there!

Nice work!

As i am planning a try on that costume, too, i have a question about the belt. To me it looks like a modified Nazi Germany army belt, without buckle, but the strapend hammered around and reduced in width to make it work as a fastener. My problem is, those belts were all 45mm wide, when i tried to calculate the width from the pictures it seems more like 55mm.
What did you use?

Lol. Nope.

Paul Haga (PHProps) and I just crafted a belt from scratch Paul made the buckle by hand. The buckle, hole and overlapping belt is all BS. Just details and non functional. The belt closes in the back with velcro so it can be adjustable.

I think Paul is going to keep making them so reach out to him on FB. I'll ask him to post on the forums too.

Chris reached out to me with the challenge of making this sucker from scratch. As he said prior, we built the front closure as a faux closure. The buckle/clasp was hand fabricated from sheet steel and the rivets are 10mm in diameter.

I went with a 3" scale for Chris because of his height so it looked proportionately correct. I can tool them for 2.5" scale as well for those closer to Mark's size.

If you have any other questions or would like to see a couple build photos, you can check them out on my PHProps FB page here:
