View Full Version : Where can I go for specialty costumes or ideas?

07-01-2013, 10:13 AM
I play a Ghoul (headliner) for our haunt and I was thinking about adding a "Human Skin Patch Vest" to his wardrobe.
I just have no idea as to how to do this.
I thought about leather but it is too expensive, (I live paycheck to paycheck).
Is there an inexpensive but realistic looking material or a company out there that does this sort of thing, or should I just give up on it.
If there is material, I can do the sewing, otherwise an inexpensive purchase could be warranted.
My budget is at $100 or less preferably.
All replies are welcome.

I used to use carwash shammy material. it looks pretty good especially when you glue fake eyelashes around an eye hole.

Dam that a good idea Allen. George just make sure you get the real ones not the synthetic type. Also if you know a hunter they my have a deer skin you could you use.

If you can post a sketch of the vest you want im sure we can help you make it cheap.

I will see what I can do with a sketch of some sort soon.
Maybe if I am lucky, I can get my very talented artist daughter to do it...I can do it but she is much better at it than I am.
I will post it as soon as I can (I am at my regular {boring} job right now)

Here is an attempt to a PDF for you.
All is subjective and artwork can be done by my daughter, if it makes it cheaper.
I hope it helps.

I am 5' 5" tall and very round, I have a 48 to 50 waist, I forgot to add that.
Any other information just ask.
