My brother, Scott, came to me with an incredible idea for a costume. He wanted to be a dark wizard.
He's very tall, at 6'8", and he wanted to be even taller. So, he bought some painter's stilts that would add 15" to his height, making him 8'1".
My task was to make him a robe and a tunic, and lengthen both so that they would fit him at his new, improved height.
The robe was very easy to make, and it turned out great. He was pretty scary at that height!
