Rorschach Test by Opergeist Rorschach Test by Opergeist
Rorschach cosplay to be worn at DragonCon 2009.

So, the hat was made from the ground up. It was a rabbit fur felt hood that was wet pulled over a bowler block ( to get the intense, boxy high crown) and then bashed and telescoped by hand. The grosgrain hatband was also hand painted.

The scarf is a silk cotton blended boucle.

The trenchcoat was actually black twill when I got ahold of it. Much chemical alteration and overdying yielded a pretty decent brown, which I then painted/distressed. This particular photo doesn't really show it, but I wired one of the epaulets so that it would stand up in that signature kink from the comics.

And last, but certainly not least, the mask is a hand painted stretch knit. If only I could get the blot to shift ::Sighs::

Photo by Aaron Sherkow, an awesome photographer, lighting designer, and drinkin' buddy.

One of the best Rorschach cosplays I've seen, nicely done. If you're after the ink to move on your mask, use thermochromic paint. It will appear coloured at room temperature but then your breath heats the paint it will turn white. Its funky stuff.

The only way to get such a high crown and a stingy brim. I made it, of course.

Thank you! Glad you like it.

Thanks very,very much.

The felt is actually more of a grey color, but it behaves well in the light. I will eventually do a Screen Accurate brown version....or mist fabric paint on the existing one. Who knows.
