How do you make a homemade priest costume?


Now that all of the accessories are built I can start the process of painting them and bringing them to life! That process begins by first plasti dipping all of the foam props. I prefer to spray on 2-3 light coats and wait for them to completely dry before adding any of my base coat primers. Resin cast parts were added for additional detail, along with hydraulic pipes These sold the look that the arm could easily raise and lower.

A friend of ours made a clerical collar using construction paper, which is actually a lot easier! But this version is a little cliff jumping san juan sturdier and I’m hoping it can be used year to year. Using hot glue gun, glue wings to bottom of sleeves and side of top.
