    I play a Ghoul (headliner) for our haunt and I was thinking about adding a "Human Skin Patch Vest" to his wardrobe.
    I just have no idea as to how to do this.
    I thought about leather but it is too expensive, (I live paycheck to paycheck).
    Is there an inexpensive but realistic looking material or a company out there that does this sort of thing, or should I just give up on it.
    If there is material, I can do the sewing, otherwise an inexpensive purchase could be warranted.
    My budget is at $100 or less preferably.
    All replies are welcome.

    I used to use carwash shammy material. it looks pretty good especially when you glue fake eyelashes around an eye hole.

    Dam that a good idea Allen. George just make sure you get the real ones not the synthetic type. Also if you know a hunter they my have a deer skin you could you use.

    I will see what I can do with a sketch of some sort soon.
    Maybe if I am lucky, I can get my very talented artist daughter to do it...I can do it but she is much better at it than I am.
    I will post it as soon as I can (I am at my regular {boring} job right now)
