Scar head - Lion King Musical - chaps

Scar chaps.... OMG chaps.... I hate these chaps ¬_¬
Hard to believe, but of this whole costume, the chaps are so far the MOST expensive and the MOST time consuming and the MOST work.

Yup..... chaps....
The leather I got at Tandy Leatherworks... it's a huge 62 square foot upholstery hide.... over $500. I've used about 2/3 of it sofar.

First... cut a V from the leather.... then run it through the sewing machine to get the texture....
Repeat about 120 times.

Then pin all the pieces together and cut the edges to the pattern.
Then sew all the pieces you pinned.

That's ONE leg.... it took me all day. I still have another one to do.

Once the leather parts are done, I need to sew black lining to the pants and sew them together D:
Oh chaps, how I hate you..... T_T

Scar head - Lion King Musical - shoulder harness thingy part 2

Back to work on Scar.... His harness is nearly done:

Put together... I drilled holes in key points and put the basic frame together, then drilled more holes and sewed pieces of latex tubing to the frame.

Several coats of paint later... the whole thing is starting to look like Bamboo :3

Also stretched out a series of tubes and painted them. These are for the corset part.

Hard to believe, but I bought 35 feet of medical tubing for this and I have already run out!
I still need to make the butt plate and arm guards.... I'm going to need at least another 20 feet. I'm starting to realize why actors claim Scar is a heavy costume to wear.... even when you use alternative materials to lighten him, he's still got a ton of stuff on him.

Written by Jason ask, and illustrated by me, this 150 page graphic novel was a real labor of love. I'm glad it's done, but I'm proud of my accomplishment.
