This costume is a recreation from the 1980’s Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. My friends and I are all fans of the series, and thought it would be a lot of fun to dress as the characters at our local Renaissance Faire. I created all of the costumes, and my good friend Brian Healy created all of the props and weapons. This Hank the Ranger consists of cotton rib knit leggings, a cuff-sleeved cotton shirt with a hood made of rib knit, and a sleeveless tunic and mantle made of suede with large metal studs. The suede pieces are lined in cotton and trimmed with cotton bias. The boots are a pair of inexpensive costume boots that I altered by replacing the side closures with heavy-duty snaps, and sewing a suede upper flap to match the leather tunic. The bow was hand-carved by Brian Healy out of Cyprus wood. The bowstring is made of Livewire, which glows yellow at the flip of a switch!
