Here is a homemade Sandman costume on a mannequin in my basement. The outfit was created by purchasing long underwear through Cabela's, I used the silk version. I purchased two tops, one had the sleeves removed and was used as the outer layer. Jo Ann Fabrics was our local fabric store where the grey stripe fabric and batting was purchased. Attached is a resin Wilco DS gun and an all metal follower purchased a few years back off of Ebay. The mannequin was found on EBAY through HD Mannequin supply, Charlie6515. The actual black fabric has a sheen to it that is not screen accurate, next time I think I would not use the silk version and would go with just plain black with a polyester/wool combination. The latter combination of fabric might have less wrinkles in appearance. I basically looked at pictures on the internet and the movie and took them to a local seamstress for the final product. All of this had been sitting in a box for a few years until I decided to put it out on display. The actual "belt" was purchased a few years back from Katarra8 off of Ebay as well. Not shown is a red lifeclock in his left hand, also an Ebay purchase. I hope you enjoy this thread and pics, I sure had a lot of fun working on this project. Note: My profiled picture to the left depicts a costume purchased off of Ebay made by CosPlay, not the outfit pictured below on the mannequin. For more info, please review all 4 pages on this topic.
