Wrinkled Clothing
Hey everyone, I'm going to my first science convention in January as The Silence from Dr. Who. I have the mask and gloves on the way, and I already own a suit jacket and pants. What I need to know though is if there is a way to purposefully add in some wrinkles to the suit. The Silence suits are very wrinkled from being so old, and I need to capture that look. Here's an example of their outfit in any of you are unclear, let me know what suggestions you guys have. Thanks!

Yay! long time to achieve this look. If you get one of those vacuum storage bags, put your suit in that (no folding it carefully, making sure it's scrunched in) then seal and vacuum it tight. Should get the wrinkles

Won't age the fabric, but close enough

Use black linen for your suit fabric. They crease like mad and will hold the creases well throughout the day.

Scrunch it together and then iron it like that, you should achieve the look quite easily.

The suits almost have a wet look to them... You could look into painting liquid latex onto the suit to help enhance the wrinkled look, but I'm not sure if that's the effect you're going for.

Over-ironing a fabric can cause the shine. Or just get the stuff people use for rewaxing wax jackets.

I'd suggest taking your suit, washing it or getting it very wet, then scrunch it up longways, take some strings and tie it every 6/7 inches so the wrinkles stay in place, then leave it somewhere to air off or maybe throw it in the tumble dryer to set the wrinkles.
