    AHI/Lincoln Mummy bandages??

    I was lucky enough to replace a childhood AHI Mummy but the new find has no bandages. I have bought the wrong stuff a few times now trying to replace the missing bandages. Can anyone recommend a good replacement? What's best to use for a replacement and from where? Any opinions?

    This is not what you asked about, but your post brought up a fond memory. When I was a kid, my AHI Mummy bandages got messed up in some fashion and I recovered him in white medical tape and I remember him looking really cool.

    Again, that doesn't help your cause, but maybe some type of medical gauze would work?

    Thanks for the is idea but I want to be able to move him. It's a 1st issue with bent arm. There are several different types of gauze and I have so far been able to buy the wrong kind over and over. I may have to make my own but was aiming for the factory look.

    I'm sure Palitoy can advise you better, but as I look at most AHI Mummies online, I don't think it's gauze at all. It looks to me like cheap, tan cotton broadcloth, treated with sizing and cut into strips. As to whether the wraps are fastened or merely wrapped and tucked around the figure, I have no idea.

    I remember having the ahi Mummy and the bandages looked tightly wrapped and the back had a piece of white tape.
    I think PNGwynne is correct in saying tan or white cotton cloth and to hold it together, go with a small piece of the
    white medical tape, jmo.

    Thanks for your input guys! I don't know why but for some reason was thinking it needed to be one long strip. I'll just cut up some cloth strips and give it a try. Gauze is not the right stuff for sure.

    Yes, I think is must be a series of strips and some strategic tape. Thanks for the facts, TJ.

    Not sure what fabric you want to use, but Joanne's had some Halloween cheesecloth fabrics in white and offwhite/cream/tan that could work well for mummy cloth and that off-white color looks like aged/soiled white cloth to give it that ages/mummified look if that is what you are going for. I bought a package of it to use for some other undead D&D customs I had in mind, and a mummy was one I thought of, but I am not sure how well it will match the original AHI fabric.
