Sauron In His Pajamas

sauron pjs costume

Sauron may be incredibly powerful and scary, but he’s got to change into more relaxing clothing than his armor at some point. Creator Jedi Elf Queen imagined him in pajamas, and it’s pretty wonderful. The best part is that the casual pj’s are combined with a detailed helmet. For the pajamas, she just bought a gray sweatsuit and used fabric paint to create the look of Sauron’s armor. The helmet, made from craft foam, took more work:

The first step was cutting the shapes out of craft foam.
Then I ironed heat n’ bond on the back. The heat causes the foam to bend, and it can be formed into the proper shape.
I then cut out the nose holes and did any embossing I wanted. This same process was used on the Eomer armor.
I used Paper Clay to sculpt what could not be formed well with the foam.
It is very soft and can be smoothed with water to cover ridges where the foam meets itself.
It adheres to the foam like glue – once it is wet. It takes patience to work with though. Thankfully it air dries slowly.
