My finished Commodus costume. made from molded leather and hand sculpted statue ornaments.
This was very difficult Costume for my to create as i have never made anything from Leather before. I hope you Enjoy :D
These are the pictures i took of the finished Iron Monger Costume i have taken pictures of the stages of dress. Hopefully get some good photos for my Portfolio. Thank you so much to Simon for being an awesome model.
The costume i am making for Preston park Hall. i have hand tailored the trousers and the Waist coat. just the tie, braces, and the leather apron to be added. this will complete the iron Monger outfit, for the Victorian Street.
For my personal project and end of second year project, i have chosen to work with leather. I am hoping to make this white armour the character Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) wears in the film Gladiator. These are some of the photos which I have taking, to help me re-create it.
Since people often ask “Alright, well this is fantasy! Why can’t we have boob shapes in plate armor?!” I decided to make a post about it. My frustration has nothing to do with historical inaccuracy and I’m all for imagination and freedom— but I’d like to (very quickly) illustrate this for you:
Mad hatter hat, I made a flat pattern and created the base of the hat with buckram. I then covered it in gold Lycra and lace and sprayed with black fabric paint, i masked parts off to create the random look. I then made the scarf and stencils to randomly embellish the ends.
