Plague Doctor Armour by Valentine-Borgia Plague Doctor Armour by Valentine-Borgia
I built this costume last year for my art class. It's based off both the beaked outfits worn by doctors during the black plague and the bodies of the fleas that carried the plague from house to house.
Its made completely from felt and burlap and had to be stitched completely by hand because my sewing machine is crap.

Would you mind if i use your design for a character concept? Not a copy ofc, just a refference picture, because i really like how you combined the stuff.

I really do like it! It's a concept i never seen before, something different from the classic long cape that covers everything.
Thank you too! :huggle:
