Paige Gardener, a.k.a. Costume Art, created a gorgeous Warhammer 40K Inquisitor costume for Dragon Con. She constructed it in five weeks and except for the corset and boots, the ensemble was made with salvaged and thrift store materials. For example, the frame of the lanterns? They’re based on a gothic-style picture frame from the thrift store. Six of them might not have been terribly expensive, but with only a single frame, Paige turned to a friend who made duplicates. The stained glass images in the lantern are actually pages from a coloring book.
Similarly, the skulls that are part of the costume were found in a bag at the thrift shop. Paige primed and painted them and used rub and buff to give them an aged metallic appearance. You can see the before and after in an image below.
