Currently, this is the most complex tailoring I've done to make a costume.

Shirt: For the pattern, I traced the outline from a dress I had, and then drew on the palm design before cutting everything out and piecing it back together. The green and silver trim is ribbon. The shirt zips up from the back, which is entirely inaccurate, but helps the front maintain a uniform appearance and makes it easy to wear.

Pants: I modified some pants. I don't like making pants from scratch. (I generally don't like wearing them either--perhaps a genderbend is in the making? :P)

Mask: It's one of those creepy theater masks covered with paperclay to get roughly the same shape. The mask is painted with acrylic and glowpaint, for all my creepy purposes. It attaches to the hood with velcro. Only issue is not having any peripheral vision and lack of air.

Bowgun: It's made of cardboard and hotglue! This is basically the weapon-type prop I've made, so the fact that it didn't fall apart on me is quite amazing. There's one of those no flame tealights that lights up (albeit, dimly) at the tip.

Cape: Also the first cape I've made, if I discount Hanbei's quarter pie cape that attaches via safety pin. For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to make it out of vinyl. The various shades of grey were painted on, and the trim is ribbon and bias tape. (Lunatic took over 20 yards of ribbon) The hood is lined with craft foam and wire (ripped out from a spiral bound notebook from work) to retain rigidity.

General flames: Any flames associated with the costume is hotglue, drawn into a fire shape on baking sheets and then painted. The fire can be attached via spirit gum to my face, or my forming rings/bracelets and wearing it on my hand.
