Costume Information

The Redeemer, the fanatical devotee of The Emperor, a man who brings the light of holy flame to the darkness. Or an omnicidal maniac, depending on who you ask.

I look forward to seeing this. I’ll probably be taking my TF2 Pyro cosplay so we could team up and burn the mutants, aliens and heretics together.

The robe looks awesome so far! Just maybe alittle too bright of a red? So maybe get it alittle dirty? As that seems to fit the look of the character ^^

Looks like a good start so far. Agree with Darkiekun that you might need to dirty that robe up a little (or maybe fake some charring XD)

I look forward to seeing how you do the headgear and chainsaw (might I recommend looking at those LED, fan and strips of crepe paper "fires")

The Mask (Posted 28th September 2013)

Yesterday, I bought an immitation Venitian carnival mask that had the right kind of shape. Now I'm cutting it to better suit the costume, and getting the paints ready.
Not sure whether to keep it the canon red colour, which is a pain to get right, or a tarnished brass colour...

The First Step (Posted 26th September 2013)

Well, with a little help, the base robe has been completed. This is only the basic version, still to be accessorised and decorated, but I'm pleased with it so far.
