Anubis Warrior (Stargate movie)

Well, it's happened again... a Stan Winston idea with a Doctor Who budget.

I've been looking through Egyptian costuming websites for inspiration (which will be duly teched-up for the costume) but for right now I'm thinking I will make the mask out of a wire frame (or even aluminum tubing from a hobby store for key support points) covered in maybe broadcloth or muslin to use as a base to build up the armored look. Fortunately I should be getting my own place soon so I'll have a bit more room to work. Does anyone have any tips for me?

you should try asking Kentelo! He made one completely out of craft foam!!!! see the amazing picture in his gallery here:

I have been thinking of making a Ra costume, even though I am a girl ^^; ...but then decided I would die in the process of making his mask >_< althoiugh I oculd make one without the mask...but then it just wouldn't seem like Ra.......

by the way, what Egyptian costuming websites have you been looking at? I am interested in seeing them!

and oh yeah! The Stargate movie is one of my all time favoriytes! (the show also)! I am glad to meet another fan!!!!

Here are a few of the sites I've looked at, all traditional Egyptian:

http://www.dragonstrike.com/egypt/cloth.htm
http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/egyptian_crafts.html (children's crafts)
http://www.ancientnile.co.uk/dress.php

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find many reference pictures of the Stargate Anubis except for a pic of a really spiffing resin model of same , so I figure I'll try to get my inspiration from more or less the same places that the moviemakers might have...

Technically those weren't Anubis guards, since it was Ra in the movie, not Anubis.

Excellent resource. You have to regester to get into the forums but the progress pics are invaluable.

your right 0_o I can't beleive I didn't notice that...the ones in the movie were Horus guards.........


wait, atually, I just went and checked.... Ra had Horus AND Anubis guards in the movie...0_0 that is very strange....since....he isn't Anubis he shouldn't have anubis guards...*shrugs* oh well....so there were anubis guards in the movie.

see this picture for an example. he obviously has both type guards in this screenshot:

I see two, possibly four eagles (two in back) and a jackal (the Horus first prime). Difficult to tell what the back two are with that resolution.
