This is awesome and I'm SO mad -- I live in PGH and had to miss comicon last weekend due to being really really broke...I could have seen this fabulosity in person! Seriously, probably the best, most detailed Jareth costume *I'VE* ever seen. Remarkable work. Love the cloak.
You should go on Sunday - you get in free if you're wearing a costume. There were some amazing costumes this year; a Robocop cast from the original screen used suit and a Chewbacca that was nearly ten feet tall.
Thanks so much, I hope to wear it again to some other Cons near the Pittsburgh area.
Not too expensive, you can get a decent amount of fiberglass cloth for around 5 dollars and the resin itself goes for around $20. These can both be found at Walmart in the auto body section or any car supply store.
However, and I stress this FIBERGLASS RESIN IS VERY DANGEROUS. Before working with it you must be in a ventilated area or even better outside, as well as have proper breathing equipment and heavy gloves (MEKP the kicking agent in fiberglass is one if the most powerful carcinogenics known to man. If you play with this stuff then you WILL get a cancer and die. Even breathing heavy amounts of the vapor will kill you (eventually). It will also cause blindness if ANY quantity gets into your eye and is not flushed out within 4 seconds.)
So before playing with fiberglass do be careful!!!
