The Witch King of the Wastelands
To you it’s just rocks and stones
but we used to call this home.
Someone is watching over you.
Not a peasant…
He’s the Lead Farmer
The Wasteland Veteran will supply all your needs…
If all your needs have something to do with the killing business.
At your service.
Killing is a matter of honour for us!
The Dust Phantom is definitely not going
to cut your hedge with this sword !
He is smart, he is badass
he is the Professor!
This new costume is a bit Rorschach (Watchmen) and Aiden Pearce (Watch Dogs) inspired. I also think it would fit into a cyberpunk setting.
I will add information about the crafting process sooner or later…or later
The Professor – Postapocalyptic costumeShh! The Professor is taking a
deep-dive into the security system
Here is Version 1 of my “Desert Lurker” postapocalyptic character costume. (Endzeit Kostüm)
This one is a mean wasteland raider. Just waiting like a trap door spider
in the desert ground to attack you with a hockey stick, blaster pistol
or by ramming his spiky helmet into your guts. Ouch, what a mess !
Here are some pictures of the crafting process
I intended to document every step making this costume. Unfortunately I didn’t 🙂
But i have some pictures and information about stuff I used.
|a lampshade i found in my fathers garden shed. This is aluminium, easy to drill. At the time the photo was shot it had no holding. It is very rickety.|
|NVA dust protection mask from ebay, i later replaced the filter by the hose.|
|parka jacket, I got from ebay. I bleeched it, frazzled it and treated it with ash, some acrylic paint, black special wax and baby oil.|
|an old synthetic leather biker jacket, which never fitted properly, so i decided to kill it. This is not the original picture but it’s close. For the dusty look, I used ash and clear paint spray to fix the ash.|
|a Bundeswehr hipcord, i got from ebay. These are cool and cheap. You can really do a lot with them for postapocalyptic costumes. Keep your eyes open and you will find them in other artists costumes. I used it as part of the belt.|
|The classic welder’s goggles with transparent glasses. Used in almost every steampunk costume :). You can get them in several online shops.|
|Some nice airplane seat belt locks, I got from ebay. They were too shiny, so i treated them with some rust spray paint and acrylic paint to give them a touch of red to put some contrast to the costume.|
|About 30 spike blanks, also from ebay. I think i cannot wear the helmet on any con with these attached. A way too dangerous. They are really spiky. I also got two larger ones attached to the mask.|
|A really cool part from a scuba gear, i got from the flea marked. I tried a lot around with this as you can see on the in-progress pictures, finally I just used a small part where the bottle is attached to. I also painted with a template and white acrylic paint some chinese symbols on it. This should fit to the asia theme like the helmet. I wrote “Game Over!” to it which should fit to the hockey stick weapon. I Hope the translation is right. I am so happy that i turned later and asked for the price. 3 € for this treasure. I am sure that i can use parts of it for other custumes.
I don’t have a picture of the original. Just one where I tried to do some kind of a backpack, which really sucked.
|A very old belt i got from the flea marked. Must have been laying around in a barn for decades. No more work needed on this. It has a very nice patina and the buckle is rusty. Price: 1€ 🙂|
|A green beer leatherpinafore . I think this was a gift some years ago. I attached a bag as a gunholster.|
|A shemag from onlineshop asmc. These are very handy for postapocalyptic costumes. They are cheap and easy to distress. I used it for the mask.|
|A zombie strike crossfire bow nerf gun. You can see the light modding on the last of the in-progress pictures.|
|An old motorcycle strap, also from ebay. I used it to “hold” the “oxygen bottle”.|
|A fieldhockey stick, nicely distressed. No more work to do. You can just see the handle on the photo.|
|I love these original 80’s Fila skiing gloves. I think my father used to wear them while he was teaching me to ski. I cut off the fingers. Sorry dad !|
|Some scrap parts from the junkyard, garage, …|
The Tooth Fairy – Postapocalyptic Character Costume
Even if mankind is on it’s knees, the Tooth Fairy will stand and defend what’s left!
I played this character on the 2016 Larp “The Miner I”.
For this Postapocalyptic Wastelander Costume I used:
- Very rusty M42 Wehrmacht Stahlhelm
- Beige Trenchcoat
- Green Tactical Vest
- Beige Bundeswehr T-Shirt
- Grey Bundeswehr gloves
- Black Bundeswehr boots
I will give you some detailed information about the parts and the distressing techniques soon !
