"Death Jester" Costume

Wauwatosa, Wisco...






This was made from a picture in a game book.My second creation! I presented the idea to my mom who helped me by drafting the pattern and doing my measurements. Then the rest was up to me, layout, cutting and sewing. (with a few helpful hints from my Mum). I had a great time wearing it out with my friends Halloween Night!

Material Notes

Black suiting for the jacket and one leg of the pants. Cotton harliqin fabric for the other pant leg and one cuff. Black suede fabric for the other cuff and black leather for closures on cuffs with 16 “D” rings. Black shirt,belt,cane and boots were purchased.





My mom for drafting, measuring and creative bug. Me for idea, layout, cutting and sewing.

    Very cool! I love the way the collar stands up and out. And where did you find that belt?

    Great outfit, I thought this was for a cosplay convention. It’s too good just to wear once for Halloween. How did you get the collar to stay up?
