Homemade Ringwraith Costume Would Fit Right Into Middle-earth

ringwraith costume

Step one for creating a Ringwraith costume: make it look creepy. Redditor Toblerone1982 definitely succeeded on that front. The fabric is a combination of fabric and jute, and the edges were worked over with sanding paper. He says it tooks a while to get the random and torn pattern, but it was worth it. As far as the gloves, he took a resourceful approach:

Since I have no anvil and steel available, I looked for some other mats to work with. I ended up with black plastic sheet 0.5mm which is just awesome to build organic forms. You can form it with the heat fan, drill, sand and paint it. And it is quite sturdy. Once you have created all parts, I have stitched them to a black glove with a strong thread. The gloves/greaves/gauntlets still could use some work but I had to finish it since the event where I wore them was just about to begin. I really liked the aging. It really brings the material to life if you are patient.
