Sunshine-32156 Commission

This is a vest I made for a Plague Doctor costume ~Sunshine-32156 will be wearing for Halloween. So lacking a proper Plague Doctors mask, I improvised with my leather one. It doesn't have as many pockets as my previous cargo vest (which is why I accepted the commission).

The symbol on the back is the olde symbol for Jupiter as well as Tin in alchemical practices. We decided to have something on the back to fill in that empty space and this is what he decided on. It's cut out with all sides turned under and then topstitched around the perimeter

I added studs to the hood to weigh it down and give it the correct shape. Otherwise these big hoods just float about. The random dee rings and clasps don't have a specific purpose, but I imagine he can add a variety of items to them as he chooses.

It's linen lined and water resistant sailcloth (cotton) on the outside. When I prewashed the outer vest fabric... nothing happened. So that's an added bonus. All the hardware is solid brass.

Nope, anything I make for other people is done bespoke, one offs. Send me a note if there's something you have your eye on and I'll let you know pricing and such.

You do amazing work, someday (hopefully sooner rather than later) I'll be able to put enough aside to commission something from you.

Excellent job, as usual. This is exactly the sort of clean execution of a design I've come to expect from you.

Ya it arrived really quickly. Put it on along with my plague doctor mask and it looks awesome. Just have to work on getting the final touches done with the outfit, mainly the missing pieces, and I will post a picture or few up on here.
