Fantasy-Medieval inspired military vests for the principal army characters were made by quilting leather and batting for the front panel, with a canvas belt finish at the back using upcycled dyed vintage military equipment. The design of the quilt and decorations was unique per character and stitched to the vest by hand.

Lady Macbeth and King Duncan's capes were made using different weights of neoprene. The seams were overlapped and topstitched to reduce bulk, and Duncan's cape has the edges finished with a darker red piping.

Distress work was done on The Witches' yellow pants and on Macbeth's bloody shirt.
