Witch Hunter Costume Revisted
Due to the overwhelming response of my earlier Witch Hunter costume post, I have decided to revisit this topic and go in-depth into making the costume as authentic as possible. Prepare yourselves warriors of Sigmar. The Empire depends on you and it is really gonna be taxing.
First up! The basic look of the Empire’s much vaunted Witch Hunters. As you can see from the picture above, courtesy of Warhammer Online, a Witch hunter costume. At it’s most base, is made up of several pieces of clothing. The look primarily revolves around medieval and renaissance time period, so for best effect. Look for clothings from this time period. You might also notice how the Witch Hunter kinda looks like a swashbuckler, so pirate costumes would work too. You have to be careful not to be overtly piratey though.
Basic Witch Hunter Look
5) Leather Belt
Ok, sure it would look like a Witch Hunter but I doubt it would impress. So let us throw in some armor and other accessories. I advise wearing the Duster first then put everything over it.
Medium Witch Hunter
3) Duster Coat
4) Pilgrim Hat
If you really want to go all the way or you just have too much money to spent you can do a Witch Hunter decked out in his/her finest wargear.
Heavy Witch Hunter
1) Breastplate (Wear the Breastplate first and everything else over it)
2) Steel Pauldron (replace the leather pauldrons)
3) For final touches, get some purity seals and scrolls to hang over the armor.
The intricate carvings and designs are not replicated in this most financially ruining guide to a witch hunter costume, you have to find a local embroider/artist to get it done. This is a quick guide for those too lazy to maker their own costume from scratch so don’t expect it to be expected it cheap. Cheers!
