This is my Phoenix Costume, Phoenix was an old AD&D character I played in High School, brought to life circa 1985.

The mask was actually a plastic tiger Halloween mask with long FunFur sewn on top then shaved to give it the proper look. The Armor was made of the regular old vinyl you can get from any fabric store with small gold picture frames sewn on for the studs. Unfortunately I had a tendency to measure myself in a relaxed position, making things rather tight, needless to say the armor fell apart really quick!

It took me around 2 months to complete this one as I recall...
