Making a Jacket

Posted in Custom Workstation

Okay I got some black shiny fabric, some brown sheets of foam, and tape that looks like pleather... where can I get like little six inch scale patterns for action figures?

I"m planning on a Red Hood custom and I want Jason Todd's jacket to look just right. I picked up a Battle Board robin to use for an unmasked head, and I already made him a "red hood" helmet, and I think I'll just be using a Longshot for the body, and I'll proly swap out the arms/hands so he'll have 5 proper fingers on each.

I was thinking about just buying one of those McFarlane Onimusha 2 figures to get the leathery vest off of Jubei but the cheapest I found him around here is 8 bucks, it'd come with a good base body for parts, some sweet ninja weapons for trades, but 8 bucks is 8 bucks. The Robin only cost me 6 at the counter.

But yeah anyone made any little patterns or anyone got suggestions on the jacket debacle?


Also, quick edit, does anyone know if the Shaft/Candyman/Snake Plissken McFarlane Movie maniac figures leather coat/jacket's come off?

I'm not sure what the exact look of the jacket is...but the x-men movie wolverine comes with a removable "leather" vest. which is actually supposed to be his jacket but his arms are just painted to complete the look....I might actually have an extra one of these laying around jess hit me up.
