    Ye gods, you are my hero!

    Are you adapting that over a bodysuit, or setting-in the lower sleeves and hose?

    And what basis for the pumps?

    ^^ I was thinking back to the conversation we had about him, muttering "it must be done, it just must be done!"

    So as much as I didn't like what he came with, I thought those bits could be used with a restyling. So I assembled what I had lying around and ordered a whole bunch of red items from CTVT to attempt this Mego-like-trickery.

    Yes, Drac body, with a red bodysuit which has four stitches on the back of each leg from calf to ankle, and also stitched at the wrists. The original outfit is turned around and pulled to the knees and elbows, creating volume. I added red elastic just under each knee, holding the pants in that shape. The shoes are cut from CTVT red motorcycle boots, and I'll also be using their black witch hunter hat and deluxe red cape with additional modifications.

    I've already cut and stitched a red head scarf, and the white collar comes next. Finding the right plumage for the hat is a challenge… ostrich could work. Lastly, that awesome staff is going to need sculpted. Love on!

    …"Beneath your dancing feet are the tombs of tortured men! Thus does The Red Death rebuke your merriment!"

    Experimenting… the truth is prettier under all that paint, and the new fabrics are very (Rit DyeMore) resistant.

    Getting back to finishing some old projects too, including an exciting convergence of green!

    I'm picking up a "Return to the Planet of the Apes" vibe here...

    ^^ Indeed… trying to give life and dimension to the design that was largely monochrome. Gonna be a fun sculpt to do.
