I would go with suede or ultra suede. Even a heavy cotton like canvas or duck would work.

what would be wrong with using an actual peice of hide or leather? I think leather/hise would look good.

I like leather but its got to be beaten up and old bfore il use it. I find pieces when I least expect it in funny places and buy it up, the stuff that looks like it been under someones work bench for years :)

Hell... before you dye it, run it over with you car a few times, and maybe rub it on the cement to give it the worn look you would want. Then dye it, so that maybe some of the "stains" you would get would hold in the fabric.

not to sure about the car but ya using sidewalk and rubbing it back and forth be good so you guys agree just go with that made loin and dye it ?

WOOO its awesome to see sombody going with Scarface.. another suggestion is if you have a dog, play tug of war with the cloth to help wear it out too. Get some bite marks in there would look.. neato. (Kinda a joke really) But I would say go with what you have planned. It seems like a good idea to me.. just weather it a lot before you dye it though

You can also use Chamois, those artificial type of cloth used for drying cars. Its soft when wet, hard when dry so you can even sculpt it to shape

uratz interesting never thought about that and i see your point not sure if ill go that rout but thats not a bad suggestion

i really think im leaning on that pre made loin cloth its 100 percent cotton its cut in the exact shape the pre pros cloth is just has to be weathered im going to dye it red to the games color and than just wear it out i think

Thanks akisha ya i love scarface and when i saw the pre pro version i fell in love even more so im kind of doing a cross between the actual game version and the prepro with my own little extra touches so its more scarface inspired than anything as i wont be able to say my costume is going to be completely canon accurate


and i do have dogs but there pomeranians and they barely want to chump on hard cookies haha

I know the thread is old but for anyone interested I used cheap vinyl I had laying around, it was red but I airbrushed it brown with dark stains. It really gave it a leather look. I paid $3 for it too.
