The Hunter is the primary character of Bloodborne. He has a bit of a pirate look with a tricorn, a long coat, and tall boots, and he carries a giant cleaver and a blunderbuss. Obviously. Cosplayer Makeshiftwings was so excited about the game she made a replica of the character’s costume for Dragon Con this year. She explains what materials and patterns she used to craft each piece of the costume at Cosplay.com:
The gloves are a lightweight faux leather. I modified a pattern I found online. The vambrace is veg-tan leather, tooled, dyed, and finished with beeswax. Straps attach with snaps. The gold detail is Worbla, primed with filler primer and spray painted gold.
The hat is made from wet-formed veg-tan leather. It’s dyed with Fiebing’s. I used sandpaper to distress the ends. I made a write-up for it here: http://makeshiftwings30.tumblr.com/post/126349960834/bloodborne-hunter-hat
The saw cleaver blade is EVA foam covered in worbla. The marks on the blade are etched in with a dremel. The handle is PVC pipe with wood for the part that holds onto the blade. It’s painted with both spray paint and acrylics. The bandages are muslin, coffee-stained and dry brushed with acrylics. The thin wraps on the handle are some kind of cording I found at Joanns. Then the whole thing got a coat of fake blood.
The hunter pistol is also EVA foam covered in worbla. All the details are worbla as well.
