|Emmy (FairyPorchQueen) was gonna do Anna Valerious, and asked if I'd be up for donning Hugh Jackman's garb again. I humbly accepted the challenge! We'll see how this one turns out. I've not really got the budget for a full leather, screen accurate outfit this time around, what with most my cash being spent on Superman, Jack Sparrow, etc... but I'll see if I can make this one work, lol. Like I said, this one's gonna be more of a challenge than anything else - make the best suit I can on what little I've got, hahaha.|
Hoping to have the whole hero suit finished by October MCM, possibly with a prop crossbow too, we'll see.

The Coat (Posted 17th October 2010)
I just won an auction on eBay for a killer brown leather coat that should work brilliantly for Van Helsing. I've made plans for how to alter the coat when it arrives. Shouldn't be more than a few hours of work, thankfully. The coat already looks good and weathered. Very excited.
You Just Gotta Love The Leather (Posted 5th July 2010)
So I've got a few more of the items I'll be using for Van Helsing. Namely the trenchcoat, waistcoat and turtleneck. I've gotta make the pauldrons for the trenchcoat (which I'll be making out of leatherette and laying on top), but that should be relatively easy. Regardless, the suit is really starting to come together, and I'm starting to see the Helsing in me, haha.
I've also ordered a Nerf gun that I'm gonna be modding the hell outta to form my crossbow gun, so that should be fun, lol.
