Ivan Isaacs

Main costume from 'Priest'

Priest

Last Updated: 11-20-2011


This costume was a replacement costume for a delayed one at Minamicon 16 in 2010. After being ill for some time I couldn’t finish my original costume for the event. I asked friends for suggestions of quick and easy costumes I could do. I was recommend ‘Priest’ as a manga to read. I loved the story and the character design so I thought I would put together something from it.

Ivan was the best choice as I wouldn’t need to do anything to my hair.

Jacket

This is actually from one of my old Han Solo costumes that I made in the early 90’s. I thought it would work well for the look even if its not really the right colour.

The shirt, trousers, belt and boots are shop brought.

The rosary is one I made. I had a collection of beads that I thought would work and brought the cross from a bead shop. I then put it all together using jewellery making supplies.

The dog collar

Is a handmade piece that I quickly crafted a day before the event. Its made from cardboard. I apinted it white and sealed it in PVA glue to keep it flexible. I had to stick it to the shirt with tape as it kept coming off.

The hat

Is a vintage 1930’s fedora that I found for my Indiana Jones costume.

The gun and holster

The gun is one I borrowed off my brother, Deppalike. The holster is my Han solo one that I hand built in 1992. The main piece is made from tough leatherette. The buckles are cut from thick pieces of metal. They are then attached using expo resin. The belt is then finished by added various pouches.

It was a fun little costume to put together. I would love to make him properly at some point. The one thing I would love to do which I ended up not doing at the con is all the make-up.
