    tried to go for a jester using horns instead of the floppy points on the hat.

    My Jester Hat has filled points, not floppy at all, you could say they are stuffed looking, firm, round, substantial looking.
    The draped and layered material of the drawing makes the costume look like it would be "hot", but maybe the actual costume would not be depending upon the actual air temps. when this will be worn and the type of fabric used.

    Didn't get to the construction part yet. It'd mainly be outside for the queue list area. In New England, October is usually anything but warm.

    He's creepy for sure. I like the horns instead of hat very much. I think the fabric layering would be fine... I love layers! Great job! Can't wait to see it come to life!

    of course for temperature concerns for the wearer, not seen in this illustration is the whole back is open like a hospital gown.

    He looks a little tall like the head and shoulders might be above the head of the wearer which would be neat. Not a full blown stalk around but maybe 8 feet tall? I'm imagining some godzilla like bones in the back that push out the clothing and show a thick neck structure that could be carried down as part of a harness. No matter what you do, horns get heavy to wear directly on your head. If the eyes are not the real eyes you can have crazy glowing fiber optic demon eyes. You actually see out of the black triangles on the front of the smock.

    Maybe you have an actor pretending to be a patron in line for long periods of time and under that costume is a full blown secret military exo skeleton that the jester can grab a 200 pound guy and carry him away bitching and screaming with his powerfull arm straight out?

    Whenever I wear my jester hat those "horns" seem to catch on the edge of every doorway and tend to slap and poke at other things and people.
    Maybe "Jester Humor" grew from this mild frustration?
    Facemakers costumes just 10 miles from me began installing small electric fans in their College maskot costumes many years ago. I go for low-tech solutions like wearing underware with holes in it.
    Of course a small quiet spinning fan blade could make those underware holes too!

    Whadda ya got ants in your pants? And how long will it take professonals to diagnose polka dot hair loss in the buttockal region?

    I told one of my guys about my comment, open back like a hospital gown and he added, and that's the scariest side of the costume!

    it looks good but currently it has very unrealistic proportions. I popped it into photo shop to give you and idea what it would look like if it had human proportions.


    still good, just not as imposing as before, also the feet should be much smaller because its never fun to work in clown shoes.
