Great job, I did the same with my trench, the RIT dye worked great. My question is, how did you go about the grime job? And more importantly, the blood stain? I've never done anything with dye before so I was amazed to have the RIT dye work perfectly, so I don't wanna mess that up cause I used the wrong method to bloody/dirty it up.

The best way to get realistic splatters is to... actually splatter on the paint. I'd suggest taking the coat outside.
Thanks! I used plain old RIT dye you'd find at Walmart/Target. Dark Brown #25: http://store.quilting-warehouse.com/100722.html
It dyes a lot of stuff, including vinyl, so what you found is probably correct.
i find myself coming back to your page time and again.
i bought a trench at ebay and want to dye it too...so once again i came here for reference... i googled RIT dye and only found that stuff to color vinyl with...is this the same thing you used...because i have to tell you, your trech just looks perfect!
I got the jacket from eBay - it is a Burberry trench.
The final mask is 3 layers of nylon tights:
1) black with eyeholes
2) white with eyeholes
3) white with no eyeholes, black Sharpie inkblot. Black design should go over eyes.
Mask is disposable and will last about a day before getting too grungy. Pin the eyeholes layers tightly so that they don't shift.
May I ask where you got the jacket and what company?
Also, what fabric did you decide to use for the mask?
