Time Taken : 15 hours

Description
A Halloween costume that I had wanted to do for some time and one for which I had had several requests too. My Girlfriend also really wanted to do Sally :D

The costume consists of a Handmade, Tailed Suit, Mask and Bat.
Getting the fit right on the suit proved to be rather tricky and working with pinstripes presented a whole raft of problems. Since it required fraying I didnt line this, instead I made it out of a heavy woolen suiting to ensure it would hang correctly.

The mask was built up with paper mache as a base and then made with Latex and paint applied to give it highlights as I wanted it to have a matt look and feel.

It was a good fun costume to wear and I forsee getting a lot of use out of him. Visability out of the mask is pretty poor though and that ld to me falling off the stage during a performance - ouch.

Update 09/02/09

I finally got to shoot Santa Jack, something I've been wanting to do for the last year. All the snow we had made it an irresistable bit of fun ;P

Costumes nothing special, The Santa suit is just the one I use for my works 'Secret Santa' and was bought, everything else is from my halloween Jack costume.

What can I say, I was over the moon when I saw you. You're the only person I know who I could see as Jack and I think falling off the stage was a small price to pay for such an amazing costume! Please rewear this with me *begs*
