This particular run of the costume is based on artwork by Vance Kovacs, which was used for the cover of "Seeing Redd". I first saw it before the book came out because Frank Beddor brought it to WonderCon. I immediately fell for the outfit and was determined to make it become a reality.
Redd's construction was probably the most work I've ever done in one costume...well over 8 months at least, and incorporating so many different things I'd done before, and new techniques as well.
