For several years I have wanted to do the Ash costume from the Army of Darkness movie. The one I have started working on is from the end of Evil Dead 2 and the beggining of AOD





Tracy is planning to do a costume similar to the one in the poster as seen below



With the help of a few different people (Mottman - thanks), I think this costume will finally become a reality.

Here is a progress photo of the chainsaw...



I am trying to put together the most accurate costume that I can, so if anyone has info to help me do that, or for Tracy's costume, please share. Thanks.

Good luck with that costume. I am a big fan of the Evil Dead movies and would love to see a good Ash costume.

I'll be interested is watching this to see how it developes. There was somone dressed as Ash walking around our local Renaissance Festival last year - I thought it was a very inspired choice - and a welcome surprise to say the least. We just needed some deadites there to spice things up a bit.

Remember... "Shop smart... Shop S-Mart."

It wold be cool if you could get this guy to sell you just the "guts" of his prop and incorporate it in you saw...I've seen and heard this thing and "played" with this prop in chicago...It's pretty loud and awesome.

YES. Somebody needs to do a good ash costume. Here's my two cents to help you along. I think I own a pair of the pants. Dickies makes a Twill Jean (not to be confused with their regular workpant) that comes in a color called 'chocolate'. http://www.dickies.com/wc2/product.asp?cat...%AE+TWILL+JEANS They look like the thing to me. It entirely possible that the shirt is a dickies too. take a look http://www.dickies.com/wc2/product.asp?cat...%2FSHORT+SLEEVE

Hope this is helpful. Keep us posted with the progress.

What kind of shotgun does ASH use.
The brand and model would be helpful..

What TimDrakeRobine said.... the exact quote:

"Now listen up, you primitive screwheads. See this? This... is my boomstick. The 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You *got* that?"

Darth Mule, thanks for the links... you could be onto something there.

Well I finally got some photos and things are starting to take shape now. My chainsaw and shotgun should be here anyday (pray)

The first photo is of Tracy's dress. Made by the amazing people at the-magic-wardrobe.com and it is based on one of the dresses that "Shiela" wears in Army of Darkness






The shirt and harness started here:



I was able to find a similar shirt from e-bay and carefully selected the materials for the harness.

Many screen shots later, I think I figured out which straps were webbing and which were leather



Next came the fun part, destressing everything




Once I had all the rips and tears in place, I could bring on some blood

Brilliant - keep us updated. :thumbsup

will do...

Think I forget the latest photos, the more distressed look. I have since darkened the top more, dyed the pants and will put finishing touching up the weathering at the con...

I was at store the other day called Factory Card Outlet, and in their Haloween section they had a big plastic chainsaw. I'm positive it had some sort of electronic sound, but I didn't want to start in up...didn't want to draw any attention as the store was really quiet.

That could probably be incorporated into your saw...but I don't know about the volume.
