I'll admit I only became familiar with Watchmen with all the movie hype. Rorschach happens to be my first Watchmen costume (Comedian followed). I liked the simple trenchcoat design and being fully masked and unrecognizable. What pushed me to do the character was when I found the trenchcoat in a random surplus clothes shop, like it was there waiting to be made into a Rorchach costume. I had the coat altered to be knee high and more fitting to my build. The cloth his "face" I also found in a cheap shop. It may not look it, but I can see from the inside. The inkblots made it easier.
