I'll do my best to help you get this done, because a Saint Sabbat/Colonel-Commissar Gaunt pair would be awesome.

Hat: When I complete mine, I can tell you how I made it and maybe scan in some patterns, plus resources for materials.

Insignia: When doubting one's molding abilities, use sculpy. Time consuming, but easy to work.

Gloves: Yeah, that's what you'll have to do, though I've bookmarked a website that teaches you how to make a custom glove pattern and tips for sewing gloves.

Sword: Wood is the way to go if you want it to be cheap. There are various places around the Bay Area where you can rent time on tools, but you can also beg around with your friends or your friend's parents, or even you school, if they have a woodshop program.

Pants: Thrift stores are your friend. Wool pants for under ten bucks, sometimes.

Sash: One yard of red satin from the fabric store is less than ten dollars. Depending on the width of the fabric, that's usually more than enough to cut and sew into a nice sash. There's not even enough sewing involved to need a machine- hand sewing would be fine.

Camo cloak: Get a large rectangle of green/brown fabric, even a camo print from the fabric store. A couple yards should do it. Then, drape nicely over the shoulders and secure with a hidden safety pin.

I can point you towards resources in the area for materials, if you like. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

For the camo-cloak, I recommend doing a German Splittermuster pattern. American camouflage patterns are just so goddamned ugly.

I can't argue with that! [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

It needs to be a dark forest pattern, though, to look suitably Tanith-like.

Yes, please. Anything helps.

You see, this is why I asked--I would've never known what to look for.

Have you got any reference pic in particular for the shirt? You'll most likely be wearing the camo cloak over it too so you'll get away with cutting a corner or two.

Not quite. Gaunt seems to have the Camo-cloak draped over his back in place of the typical Commissar's greatcoat, so I'm afraid he'll have to get the vest.


As for a reference, I've found this one to be the most useful.



Oh, and if you're really indecisive about what camo-pattern you want to use, I'd check out http://www.kamouflage.net/. Useful stuff.

It took quite a few layers of polish to get the look the way I wanted it. It might need a few more. Still, it's fairly quick and not very hard, and definitely cheaper than getting nice black leather gloves.

For gloves, you could always look at shops that are closing down. I went to Liverpool a couple of years ago and there was a glove shop (it didn't seem to have anything else) that was already practically closed and I got a pair of decent black gloves for about

if you are feeling saucy here is a mostly home made coat solutions

go to a second hand shop and get a good fitting dress jacket the front closure doesnt mater as we are hiding it (from the pic id say dark blue blazer). go to a fabric shop and get about a yard of fab as close in color as you can to the jacket, some gold curtain cord (you will need a lot), gold buttons (you will need allot) , and some back bias tape (fyi its not tap but fab you use to cover edges of a garment). go to a craft store and get a foam poster board. go home and cut the poster into a trapezoid roughly dimensions of your chest. the marking points should be your collar bone for the top and your belly button as the bottom. as to how wide the bottom use the front two belt loops on your pants and at the top use your nipples (yes i said nipples feel free to laugh). now cut that directly in half.  now take your cloth and cover both these pieces (leave a little extra on the side that is the middle cut as that is for the next step). now take coat and fold the lapels in. lay one of our fake lapel over the left side of the jacket with the bit extra under the right side (this will be the right side). now sew the fringe bit and the right side of the jacket and fold our new lapel over and put some tacking stitches every so often on the far edge. repeat the possess.

now take a sec and breath the hard work is done. take the gold curtain cord and snake it in close S pattern along one of the lapels going from one edge to the other going left to right. a way to cheat and take up more space is at the edge of each S curve is to make a clover (will cover those at a later point). tack these down with either fab glue or a bit off thread. make sure to leave a small over hang of a loop on the side in the middle as these will be used as button holes. do the same thing on the other lapel except this time dont leave an over hang in the middle. now sew the gold buttons over the loops on  the shot side. these should match up with the longer loops in the first side.


as soon as i my comp is a little more receptive to the idea of not shutting down while im typing ill post more about this and some ideas on the gloves hat and cape (this is the third time i tried to post this)

Yeah a trick with the shoe polish is to heat it with a lamp first and let the liquid soak into gloves, i am with u on the German camo though or maybe Vietnam tiger-stripe and re-dye a little darker for washed out look, as for the emblems hears link to  mold making
www.hirstarts.com/moldmake/moldmaking.html should get u started.

Personally, I'm glad to see someone go with a tanith theme as well.  Around my side of things (yay fun NC).  We're looking at setting up as a few members of the Regiment, so that'll make things fun to do.

Also, first post here.

Heh, well, you guys will probably be together before I even get off the ground. Life has sort of gotten in the way a little bit for me and this has been indefinitely on the back burner since forever. Not only did I not manage to get pass for ComicCon ='[, the money got tighter, and I just didn't have the time. At this point I'll might get started work over the summer or in the winter, when things clear up, and I've taken refuge in the haven of all slipshod costumers: irony. In an unnecessarily high brow literary reference, I'll be making my way around the convention circuit as Vladimir (Estragon?) of Waiting for Godot fame.
