Scarecrow Arkham Asylum 3

Submitted to the #Villainous-Alliance for the Scariest Villain Contest.

These are a few shots of my Arkham Asylum Scarecrow costume,
all made by me, claw, mask, hood pants ect.

in a few weeks i will include some with the electronics activated on the claw, IE it will be glowing. i just did not have batteries during this photoshoot.

Edit: i'm getting a lot of messages from people about the materials i used in making this,
and it's getting pretty silly that i'm retyping it two or three times a day now,
so to help me keep my sanity and the benefit of all:
i used about 2-3 yards each of three colors of a rough thick linen, no brand name i'm afraid, just $7 a yard at Jo-anns
the patch work effect was done by making a paper pattern for each piece of the clothing, and dividing the pattern into pieces,
i then cut and machine stitched all those pieces together to make the costume, and then hand stitched over the top with a thick white thread to give the "chunky" stitching effect.

the glove was a combination of some syringes, pen tips, EL wire, some plastic and a few kids toys, all painted with acrylics.

liberal amounts of ink, dirt and other substances were used to distress various parts also

This is an awesome costume. I was just wondering would you consider making this costume for someone? And how much would you do it for?

your cosplays are amazing! i'm so freaking jealous of you skills! right now i'm in the process of making the syringe claw and i know what i'm going to do for the most part. the only issue are the 3 cylindrical piece circling the arm. i been looking around for something that would work and im at a loss. what did you use for that part?
grimdarkkommissar's avatar

i got them as plastic kids test tubes from a child science center.

Ahhhh! I've thought about doing a female version of this. Keeping everythng the same as in the game... except i'd have to have a top underneath. LOL! Though.... I know who I would come to if I needed help.

i know you explained how to make the glove but i was also wondering how you made the mask and what kind of rope you used
grimdarkkommissar's avatar
the rope is actual rat tail (a type of rope) from a sailing ship.

the mask was shaped wiremesh with fabric attached.
