Costume Information

General
Cost : about five pounds
Time Taken : about three weeks, because it was on and off..

Description
It was a pretty simple thing really. It popped into my head while rewatching the film Dead Leaves with my brother that i would cosplay that guy. The TV probably took the longest amount of time because it had three layers of papier-mache over it which naturally took forever to dry along with four or five layers of paint and another two layers of glue. And i'm lazy and egenrally took a week off between stages. The shirt was made tougher by the fact that i'm a cack-handed fool and knocked my fabric paint over first time. It looks bad because i took very little care over it, were i to do it again i t would look so much better. The boxers don't look great because i bought them from a store rather than paint my own, and the shoes have nothing to do with the costume, i didn't facy walking around barefoot. Also, for obvious reasons, i wore a t-shirt under the shirt.

That is the worst thing on the planet! You see i kinda lost it somewhere in China town after leaving the Con. But i plan to make a better one for my next Retro cosplay.

It was literally a box on a box though...
