I choose to make it because I thought it would be an interesting costume for a beginner to make. I thought it would be quite easy to make, but it wasn't untill I really started that I realised for my level it was actually pretty difficult!
Making the poncho part of the costume was ok, I originally made the entire pattern out of old sheets to get the pattern. The toughest part so far has been the hood as making it the right size and shape has been difficult an taken about 4-5 attempts. I think the biggest problem was visualising the front of the hood, the only thing I have been able to do is to join the hood at the front in order to keep the shape. The long pixie like back of the hood wasn't a problem either.
I made the stripe out of ribbon and have added an extra panel to the front of the poncho for extra effect and so the exocist badge will stands out.
I made his bandages out of white cotton which I have machine sewed to stop fraying.
The double Ribbon has worked well too and looks very effective against the black.
The Buttons come in packs of two, can be ordered from Hong Kong.
The Badge seems to differ alittle but no matter. Dimentions are as follows :
8.5x12.1 (cm wxh)
... I used stick on Valcrow, it was so hot at the con, the glue melted >.>;
Allergy advice :
I have found that the Polyester Suede has alot of loose fibres and dust that comes loose. I don't usually suffer from allergies or bad reactions but this material is making me cough like crazy.
