Tessek Costume

34 posts in this topic

Hi!  I recently began working on a Tessek costume.  I currently already have the mask and gloves for it.  I was thinking since the fabric is seemingly unknown, for the robe and cape liner to use some off white fabric (kinda taking a page from the klatuu CRL where it says any fabric).  The gauntlets I think are some kind of blue velvet/suede, and the cape I find to be a grayish brown velvet. I have fabric for it already and i'm hoping next week to show some progress pictures!

Hi! I'm working on a Tessek costume too (: I'm going to modify the outrobe because LMO doesn't approve the color.

I want to build Tessek, too.

The fabric is velvet (cape and gauntlets).

Colour of the cape is like a grey/brown.

The boots are made of velvet, too and have the same colour like the cape.

I'm searching for a grey/green velvet. I wrote to actor, Gerald Home, and he says the same. About boots i don't know, in photo it's hard to catch them.

Gloves:

The Material for the cape I got is kinda a mix between velvet and suede,  It appears brown, gray, and green or even a mix depending on the light.  The material for the gauntlets I have is a suede, as well.  Perhaps on the CRL Basic Approval coould be Velvet/suede/velour or similar material? and Level 2 be velvet?  Also with the boots, I have been having trouble finding brown velvet boots, all I could find is brown texture less boots, Perhaps Velvet/suede boots could be level 2?

Also any ideas on how to make the mask more breathable?

Right about where the teeth are, but I was kinda thinking of putting them in the hole like areas in the neck?

The pictures are difficult to interpretate because the lightning change a lot the color of the cape

For the CLR i think that these could be the elements :

Mask

Hands

Vambraces/Gauntlets

Tunic

Cloak

Belt (or other name more accurate for the gold abdominal part)

Boots

I think the belt is more of a breast plate/ girdle

Take your fabric pictures outside on a cloudy day. Auto white balance. No flash.

I think The fabric of the cape might just be a some form of brown, Doing some research, They did have filters and strange lighting with the movies, Kinda like how the officer uniforms looked grey but where actually olive?  I think it appeared green/gray/brown due to lighting.

I think my Tessek Costume is finished:

And I think my theory is correct when it comes to the cape changing color from brown to greenish by the way lighting is.

Eh I figured leather brown textureless boots could pass for basic approval and the other ones for level 2, kinda like the royal guards who have basic for black boots, but level 2 is velvet red boots.

Some more Photos:
