I always had a thing for red heads and I must say, this red-head is just made of winz. Who am I talking about? Read the damn title for god’s sake!
Admittedly, Alex Sim-Wise had only came to my attention recently, thanks to the wonderful thing we call youtube. Did I mention she is kinda a gamer and a geek as well? No? Well she is! Double points! High Score! I mean with a name like Sim-Wise (Sam Wise anyone?), she has gotta be something else. Hilarious, bold, sexy and my personal favorite, British, Alex Sim-Wise, she has got it all!
You can enjoy more Alex goodness here.
Yes, yes, super pun times. Anyways, I’ve recently…, fine, that is not entirely true. Some time back, I received a comment on my Witch Hunter costume post, the commenter actually made a Witch Hunter costume and even left a link to the pictures.
I can’t say for sure that it was my post which inspired him to do it, I hope it did, but I have to say it was a great attempt. Here are the pictures, you can view his full album over at this link. http://s646.photobucket.com/home/demonic_ken
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!
Sweet huh, I’ve recently been thinking of getting a Witch Hunter costume. Great for Halloween costume if you ask me. NOBODY EXPECTS THE SIGMARITE INQUISITION!! So a few click here, a little research there. Here is a break down of the cost it will set me back by if I choose to make a Witch Hunter costume.
Flintlock Pistol replica: SG$ 126
Rapier/sword replica: SG$ 500+
Duster: US$ 59.97 – 69.97
Pilgrim Hat: US$ 12.99

Yeas so it is gonna hit close to 1000 bucks and it will only look something like this.
