Pics are still coming to light from Halloween - so here’s another one;
On the left: my comic-style costume - Judge Mental.
The two movie-style costumes are not my work.
An Unhinged Mind Never Rests ...
... 2000ad & Judge Dredd fanatic/cosplayer.
So, I’ve established that the overall look is open to a certain degree of artistic liberty and interpretation. I’m temped to pick one artist from 2000ad and follow his designs and work as faithfully as possible, but the odds are that the finished costume will be a pot-pourri of various interpretations of the look of Dredd… except the Stallone film version.
The costume undeniable comprises of the following elements, most of which willl have to be crafted from scratch;
Helmet, Left Shoulder, Right Shoulder, Badge of Office, Badge Chain, Belt Buckle, Belt pouches and belt, Elbow Pads, Gauntlets, Knee Pads, Boots, Undersuit and Lawgiver gun.
Above: Diane Lane as Judge Hershey from the 1995 film - my costume will be nothing like this and I won’t look anywhere near as fit wearing it!
