    Mafia Flashback! Hand-sewn costume, weapon & accessories and props

    Okay. I haven't been here for over 10 years. Not sure how many oldies are still around to have seen this, but new joiners will see how bad it was for us. We had to make everything! Haha
    I made this back in circa 2007. Back then, there were no proper suits being sold. So I made my own, using my grandma's old (non-electric) sewing machine.

    The suit and overcoat were made from old pants that I cut up. The white shirt from my old school uniform. The hat was papier mache. Briefcase and cash were handmade as well. I took photos of each side of the briefcase and printed the layout on hard paper. Folded and glued it to form the shape. Each note in the stacks of cash were printed in 1930s Prohibition Era notes.

    Haven't made a post in a decade. I hope this works...

    That is really a wonderfully 1930's era costume and coat! Did you use any original patterns for clothing of that era or did you create your own? I own a hand-powered sewing machine but find it difficult to sew very small parts of clothing. Do you have any tips?

    As a an "Oldie", I remember you and welcome back! Yep, the olden times when you had to make it if it wasn't WWII. And half the time you had to make it anyway!
