Aragorn  - Halloween shortcuts

Here we present some shortcuts from our members.

Need to fake the leather? Check our tips section.

His Strider Outfit

The under layers are pretty easy.  Find some tight pants.  Oh, OK... dark sweats will work.  If you have a black (FOTR) or red (TTT) ren-fair shirt you're half way there.  If not, you may be able to covert a regular shirt by cutting off the top of the collar to get rid of the pointy fold over part.  So the top the collar is now a raw edge... he's a ranger. It's ratty. 

He's got two outer layers that are both leather.  I'm going to guess you're not into a lot of sewing... so just do his sleeveless jerkin.  Hunt the thirst stores for an old motorcycle jacket or a leather coat, longer is better.  Dark brown is best, but black will work..  It doesn't have to fit you.  It can be ratty.  Cut out the zipper, the collar, the sleeves.  Slit it up the back to the waist..  The edges of the jerkin are bound... you can either get double fold seam binding at the fabric store or hack away at the leather bits you cut off to make strips about 1 inch wide that you can fold over and sew down on the edges..  Add ties to the front of the jerkin.  You can make these out of the leather strips you cut away or get bits of braided cord. 

Duster is a bit more complex because you need sleeves and stuff... If you want to do the outer layer, I suggest you check out our pattern section and look in the main character section under humans for more details


Da glove: It's the Michael Jackson look.  You need one black glove, fingers missing.  That should be easy to get from a thrift store.  You can always cut the figures off yourself.

Boots:  If you've got pirate or cavalier boots, those are the best.  Tie a bit of cord around the tops.  If not, any kind of boots will work.

Vambraces: Those are the leather things a lot of the guys wear on their lower arms.  Here's a quick pattern: http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Cavern/4200/lvamb.html .  You can shape them a bit and draw a white tree on them.
