The Plague Doctor


As the name suggests, the plague doctor is a physician, specialized in treating those who had the plague. The beak was traditionally worn with aromatics stored in it, which would keep the physician from breathing the putrid air that caused the plague. (Wikipedia)

The costume I have created is very industrious. It features lots of brass plating designed to protect important vitals from death rays and most aether powered weaponry. It is hand crafted from the finest leather to support a lifetime of wear and tear. The plague doctor’s weapon of choice is the butcher’s meat cleaver – because if you cut one type of meat, you can cut the other!
