I Wouldn’t Want To Meet This Minotaur In a Maze


No one wants to wander through a labyrinth and encounter a minotaur. As far as I know, Instructables user octopied kept his cool costume out of mazes. He made the creature outfit for a university project and used a combination of products – including silicone and leather – to make it. The building process took around 12 weeks and cost about $580.

I sculpted the mask over a plastic head and cast it in silicone, the horns are made of fibreglass and mounted on a fibreglass skull cap.
The tunic is linen, for the pattern I just took a long sleeve T-shirt belonging to the model, placed it on the fabric and drew round it with a seam allowance and lots more length at the bottom.
The pauldrons and belt are cut from a piece of very heavy weight leather, then dyed and stitched together, the stone in the belt is plastic and sprayed with car paint and the buckles I bought from a leather supplier (I think they are designed for use in saddlery).
The cloak is just a piece of wool fabric, pinned at the front (I meant to make some proper fastening but ran out of time)
