I think I’ve stated before that the idea to start making Rogues came from an idea I had for a Scarecrow from what would’ve been Batman 5 had Batman And Robin not been a bomb. It was very Burton influenced by design. And that was good and well, but it wasn’t really mine. It wasn’t the Scarecrow I wanted on my shelf. I guess it goes without saying that I like things the way I like them.
Originally I had sculpted a head for him with a burlap texture and wire threads for the smile. However the more I thought about how I wanted to do the hat and hair I realized it would look much better if it were all cloth with a face underneath.
The shirt and pants were bleached/dyed from stuff I had in the parts tub and before being re-tailored to fit the super skinny body wanted to have him on. The hood and hat were stitched together from scratch. A couple patches and some tattered rope rounds out the rest of the costume.
Lastly the hands were generic bare hands. I re-shaped the fingers using sewing pins and hot water, and then sculpted the pointy fingertips. Similar the feet are scupted from scratch to accommodate the look I wanted. In retrospect I think I should’ve cast them in the off chance I decide to make Ragman. Rags would be amazing in 1/6 scale.
