As soon as I saw the photos, I knew EXCATLY what it was; dispite the fact that I have never actually played the game. Weird. Good luck with the costume!

Progress Journal

Sleeveless (Posted 14th March 2009)

Misplacing all my own made patterns was a blow!
But still remeasured out a new pattern for the vest and cut it up for the components of the vest and used pvc. The collar was annoying and I had to buy more bias! And why must I puish myself by lining the thing?

Right arm painted (Posted 1st March 2009)

The main bulk of white was painted with acrylic!
A lesson learned was not to coat the structure with pva glue before painting else the paint cracks! Had to use several layers to get an uncracked finish. The ront was aprayed red and that stayed nicely without cracking. So with acrylic coat after with pva.

Arms 1 (Posted 1st March 2009)

I used a similar technique to make the arms
I have since changed the left arm slightly to add more fatness
