Description
Dr Stein is one of my Favourite characters from Soul Eater

His split personality cracks me up, and the Screw head makes me cringe when ever he cranks it round *shudders*

Im doing the battle version with the DeathScyth from when he meets Ragnarock

This cos is very last miniuet cos thrown together out of what was laying around

The Wig - Amber surprised me with a bargan £3 wig from a random bits and bobs shop

Glasses - For glasses im using my Wildarms Glasses

Head Screw - Made from a cut down 32mm PVC pipe, Polystyrene, Duck Tape and a coat hanger wire that goes through the wig :)

T-Shirt - Ths is made out of a Lycra from a pattern based i made from another t-shirt. I cut away the centre setion and laid it out on doubled over grey Lycra, wool wasnt cutting it for the Stitching Detail Stein has so i went over parts (Centre stripe, Neck and Sleeve) with a wide zig zag stitch.

Trousers - Using plain black jeans from my Kittan Costume

Shoes - I realy cant be arsed to make shoes this time round so wil remember my work shoes this time

The Scythe - I used 32mm PVC Pipeing as the hade and cros section which is cut away to interlock with shockingly enough only electrical tape to secure in place.
The blade was carved out of polystyrene and wrapped in ductape, i then had to counter weight the blade at the other end of the cross section by stuffing the tube wth more pipeing and ductape.

The Blade broke at Midlands i could easily make another but i doubt it will survive the journey to london

I finally got round to making his labcoat (minus his front pockets) i painted on the stitches ny hand made a ppere template for the collar etc etc not bad for a days work tho

Woah... saw FrankNStein and, for a second, thought of FrankNFurter.

Must watch Soul Eater, looks like an interesting character.

Very nice. My friend at college introduced me to this anime, me bing who I am I instantly fell in love with this character. Heh liking labcoats, science, and boring on partial sanity at times (me without my medications.) Errrrmmm either way I would like to cosplay as him someday! That is after my Clive Winslet one.

But nice job, about the car... Did you paint your car like that with the stitching? Or I don't know. Gah college with no internet makes me mad and it's hard to reply to things.
