Steampunk Ash



Hail to the king, baby! Clifton created and wore this costume of Army of Darkness's Ash Williams to DragonCon:

Being relatively new to cosplay and having almost no experience with sewing, I knew that the most difficult aspect of creating my steampunk costume would not be its design, but its construction. Fortunately, my girlfriend taught me the basics of using a sewing machine and reading patterns, and with her help, I created the vest and ascot, and modified the pants and shirt. I was also fairly inexperienced with prop making, but with a lot of time, effort, and only minor injuries, I was able to create the props the way I envisioned them. The base of the chainsaw is an actual Homerunner XL chainsaw (as used in the movie) that I purchased from eBay. I gutted the casing, took apart the engine, and then heavily modified the shell and blade with actual copper tubing, spare parts from a bike shop, and a variety of parts I found while thrifting.

I'm sure a lot of hard work went into his outfit, so I won't say anything mean.

It's nice that he learned to sew. That's a handy skill.
