The Riddler


Costume Information

Time Taken : 2 months

This costume has taken approximately two months to complete. All the detailing on the purple fabric for both the tie and jacket has been hand drawn, something I'm not going to be repeating any time soon (it nearly drove me insane, there's so much of it!) The only part of the clothing not to be hand made is the shirt. The lapels and collar had to be flatlined as the fabric is far too light to be used on its own. the gloves are leather and have had the fingers cut down and the question marks painted on using leather paint to avoid cracking. The hat was once black and has been painted with spraypaint, and a band made from purple ribbon. The tie clip is made from air dry clay which I then spraypainted gold and glued to a cut down gold tie bar. The large question mark on the back of the jacket is made from yellow polycotton oversprayed with gold paint, I then backed it with fusable interfacing before edging with purple bias binding. The other details are painted on with fabric paint (3D paint on the epaulettes)

Riddle me this!
I have a head and a tail, but never any legs. What am I?
Man, that's an awesome costume. I'd love to do it myself one day.
