Nice, you look just like Alex!
Nice, you look just like Alex!
Here's a close up showing the mask and cuffs better
I'm still hopeful for a photoshoot using the existing original movie locations in the next couple of weeks.
You even have it right down to the different colored eyes on the cuffs.
My Alex shirt is a vintage western shirt with the collar removed and re-stitched. It has the front and back yoke and pointed pocket flaps like the movie one. Only thing it lacks is the 3 button cuff, mine only has two.
Off topic, but the Joker clothes were custom made. The shirt was from Kwally's run here on the RPF and the tie is IndyMagnoli's. There's a Joker costume thread somewhere on the boards.
Viddy well, little brother. Viddy well.
Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it is gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It is like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!
I've been making and selling these "bloody eyeball" accessories for the past few years.
PM me if you're in the market for a set.
Please tell me how much they are and I shall purchase a pair. I am living in Sydney , Australia so I guess you have to tell me how much shipping would be.
Kind Regards Larry
Please tell me if you have a Maskie for sale and where you puchased the cane from? was it ebay?
thanks , Kind regards Larry
Anyone have any idea as to the make and model of the bowler worn by Malcolm McDowell? To my eye it looks like an Equestrian model. While those are made today by Christy's and James Lock, I am not aware of anyone that makes them with that knife-edge brim, which suggests to me that McDowell was wearing a vintage hat from the 50s or early 60s. Your help is much appreciated.
Just wanted to show off MY attempt at an Alex costume! Me and my lady were a HUGE success at the parties we went to. I just want to give special thanks to NoTsOsErIoUs for sharing his tips and tricks with me. And now? On to the pics!
Excellent platties my little droogs! Makes me viddy young Alex in my gulliver
Incidently, the groin guard looks very much like a dated version of one I own from my muay thai days. I will try and dig it out and upload a pic for reference in the next few days
Oh nice work FakeBritishAccent! I'm loving the Britva, did you use Bamboo? Good thinking.
As for the Hat used in the film, I've been doing a little research. The only time in inside of the hat is seen is when it topples from Alex's head during the fight scene with Billyboy and his droogs.
The lining appears to be red with a wider leather headband and what appears to be a drawstring. This would definitely make it a hard shelled riding hat.
The red lining narrows down the maker considerably.
To my limited knowlege red lined hard shelled riding hats were made by:
G A Dunn & Co (but they don't include the wide leather drawstring head band)
Christy's of London (the brim on these dosen't look right for the part, but not sure on vintage examples. Again no wide leather headband)
Harry Hall (from the vintage examples I've seen these look to be the closest, ticking all the boxes. If I had to say, I'd say this is the one).
If anyone else with more knowlege of Bowlers would like to chime in, feel free.
Awesome job! Just saw The Adicts in Dallas courtesy of Wuhrer. Glad I revisited this thread.
Great job NoTsOsErIoUs and FakeBritishAccent, Hey by the way where did you get the Hazel stick NoTsOsErIoUs?
Great costume... I was wondering if you have anymore detailed pics of the codpiece build? I'm putting one together in the next few days and any help would be really appreciated. I'm basing it on the same Ampro Abdo Guard that you used, any advice on materials used and construction would be great
Did a little more work on the costume.
Added a new shirt, needle cord with a three button cuff.
New hat with a thinner brim.
Lightened the cod-piece (need to give it another going over with the spray).
Got a new stick a little more accurate than the last.
Will try an get some pics of the back of the cod-piece up. Busy working on new costumes at the mo.
Great stuff NoTsOsErIoUs!
Be sure to post more pics.
Has just started with my Alex costume, found this photo on Flickr, as you may probably already have seen: Alex Costume. | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
holds bowler hat, Suspenders, Boots and soon a pair of bloody eyeballs from ebay.
All tips are welcome.
hi i liked your clockwork orange codpiece and i was wondering if you would sell it to me?
or perhaps you could make me one and i can pay you whatever you think its worth
let me know cheers
Thanks for the comments. Not for sale I'm afraid, and I'm too swamped with other stuff to think about making others.
Why not give it a go yourself? Have a look for a descent boxing groin protector that you think conforms to the shape and then just cover it in a suitable material. I used the back of a leather hide, but you may find a suadette fabric easier to work with.
I needed to lighten the colour of the leather nap so I just used Magix colour spray. I think it goes by a different trade name in the states (Meltonian or Nu-life).
I want to say they are corcoran Jump boots. If not exact, they are VERY close
