THE PLAGUE DOCTOR
Got a sick family member in your village? Who ya gonna call? The Plague doctor was the medieval version of a hazmat worker. The fabric he wore was usually leather or heavy fabric coated in wax. The beak held incense and a breathing tube in it. The long stick was used to keep the sick at arms length while traveling through sick areas.

Side notes: the hat was designed and painted by me, and was 3D printed by Shapeway.com. The mask is a gorilla head from the CMF series. I cut the face out and added a clay beak, then painted the whole thing. Everything else is stock LEGO pieces.
This is my first real custom in more than a year, I hope you like it!
