Daenerys Winter Outfit Fur Technique?

Hello!

My wife and I are going to do a Jon Snow and Daenerys duo cosplay, and she wants to do the winter outfit from a few episodes ago. It looks to be fur that has been... altered... in some way. Here are the pics. I don't even know where to begin.







Should I find a faux fur and, dare I say, shave the pattern into it? Thanks in advance for any insights!

It is indeed shaved.

With faux fur this might be very tricky as it will expose not leather but the fabric base.

That is an exceedingly ambitious build. I've worked with faux fur as well as real and various types of leather and frankly I wouldn't touch it unless I won the lottery and had thousands of dollars to throw at the project.

I was able to find this interview in Vanity Fair with the costume designer, which shed a lot of light on the subject.

https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood...erview-viserys

Per the article:

Quote:
The coat is made of “fake leather strips, a long pile high-quality fake fur and a short pile white fake fur, and the hem we used rabbit fur. It is all stitched together in strips and then mounded to a corset-style base.”
There are some additional reference pictures that will be helpful. What do people think about the method of sewing all the individual strips together? Seems like a fairly daunting task...

This interview suggests that it's constructed from a zillion individual strips:

maybe you can get away with using those maassively fat chunky furry yarns and sewing/gluing that down to a base instead. but even then it's so much work.

With high-quality, dense faux fur with dark root and light tips and a shaver held at an angle (ie don't hold the cutting blade perpendicular to the fabric) you could probably hide the base fabric of the fur and get something looking like that. The layers of white everywhere but down the back though, that's 100s of strips stitched together and shaved. You COULD do that.

D'you want to? I DUNNO.

yeah. Even if I were being paid a nice wage I would not really be excited by that. It's an obscene amount of work.
