This is a huge kit! It stands over a foot and half and looks terrific. Screamin' really nailed it on this one. The cloak has a cloth texture to it that is wonderful to dry brush for dirtying it up. The kit comes in a few major parts and the Gaffi stick is made up of some wood, paper and vinyl parts. The kit goes together well after trimming. Just be sure to heat the vinyl with warm water or air before cutting. It will make your job much easier. There are only a few seams but they can be easily filled with a bead of super glue to further reinforce the seam. For painting, I based the cloak in Flat Light Aircraft Gray. I then dry brushed some grays and black on the cloak. After that I airbrushed some black into the folds. For the other parts of the costume I started with a light brown color and worked my way up to a darker brown by dry brushing various shades of brown over it. I then picked out the details of the face with various colors. The kit also comes with a piece that hangs under his chin and you have to attach a wire to it to make a sort of necklace. Not too much trouble. The Gaffi stick goes together nicely as well. I ended up sharpening the point in a pencil sharpener and let me tell you, it is sharp! You could seriously get hurt. It used to be on my shelf sticking out right at eye level...I moved it after realizing. :) I based the staff in a dark gray metal color and dry brushed rusty browns over it. I finished off the kit by making a sand covered wooden base. That's pretty much it! A great kit if you have the room. I got this off eBay for around $25.
