Uncharted 3: Drake's Fox 'Keffiyeh Scarf' by DRSpaceman Uncharted 3: Drake's Fox 'Keffiyeh Scarf' by DRSpaceman

*UPDATE* 18/11/11
I've created proper graphics for the titles as well as adding a 'Making of' section.

Building up to the release of Uncharted 3, I decided to do something special, something that I thought would be a bit of a challenge but at the same time fun to do. I set out to
create a costume for my StupidFox plushie, one that resembled Nathan Drake's desert attire in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.

This is the first time I've tried hand printing anything before, and proved to be quite a challenge. Initially, I thought about creating the gun strap and holster as well as the bandoleer, but as the project progressed it proved unnecessary as the scarf (Keffiyeh) takes up most of the room. For the keffiyeh, I spent alot of time analysing videos of Drake with his scarf, what the pattern looked like, the tassels, how it was worn, etc. I then set about seeing which fabric would work best and found that cotton was suitable as it is a nice 'stretchy' fabric.

I began work on a prototype version to first see if it was at all possible. The pattern is made up of a simple four square sequence. I created a linocut to use as a stamp from a piece of lino by drawing the design on with permanent marker and then using lino cutting tools to extract the unnecessary parts. Again, this was the first time I've attempted 'lino cutting'. I super-glued a spray bottle top to the back of the linocut, which made it easier to lino print. With the prototype finished I set about creating the final version.

To avoid fraying where the tassels are sewn in, I had to hem up the sides in the final version using a sewing machine. I then printed the main pattern on using the linocut stamp I made earlier. I used an old xray to make stencils for the single and multiple lines on the sides of the scarf. Tassels were sewn in afterwards and thread split to give it that 'frayed' look. Drake's ring completes the costume, which I got with my Explorer Edition of Uncharted 3.

All comments and critique welcome :D

Wow, thank you so much for the nice comment, very much appreciated! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of creating the scarf from scratch, and the pattern nearly did my head in too... because the sequence had to be pretty much perfect otherwise it wouldn't have worked haha! :D

Thank you soo much for the nice comments! :hug: And coming from the creator of StupidFox, I'm stoked!
I'm making a 3D version of him for an environment I'm currently working on :) Would you like me to note you about it once he's finished?
I've just added some links in the description to an 'extended' look at the creation of his 'Drake's Fox' costume. Feel free to check it out when you have a chance ;)

It's very detailed, I love how you made the ring. Plus, the scarf would've been hard to make. And, Stupid Fox.

The only I made was the scarf really :P. StupidFox is a premade plushie you can purchase here > [link] The one's that are selling at the moment look really strange, I'm glad I bought mine when I did ;) As for the ring, I got it in the Uncharted 3 Explorer Edition :)

Not quite sure where you'd be able to find it sorry, and I'm still not sure whether its actually made from metal or resin. I still haven't tried the belt buckle on yet...
Kinda wish they put the Cipher disk in instead of the buckle but oh well ~_~

Ohmai... that's so awesome!!
You must be congratulated on all that printing with that little stamp!!
That would have been a totally awesome way to make my Drake plushie a scarf - though unfortunately I had to give up the idea for the sake of Drakey's vision. :P

I'm sure StupidFox is overwhelmingly happy to be able to dress up as like... the most amazingly awesome video game character ever. :D

Yeah thanks, I printed the pattern on approx 300 times with that little stamp! ^^;
I can see you having trouble making it work on your plushie, mainly because he doesn't have much of a neck :P
As for Foxy being able to dress up as the most amazingly awesome videogame character ever, yeah he loves it! :D
