Description
This costume has been through many versions and is now retired unless a VERY good reason to rewear it presents itself. I had sworn off crossplay but the chance to be such a fun character convinced me.

The first version was largely made up of items from charity shops and was pretty inaccurate. Over the (many) times I wore it, it slowly improved in accuracy until the only parts of the original costume that remained were the moustache, trousers and some of the hair accessories. It was largely pretty easy to make: the pieces were quite simple and raggedness was excusable as age damage. Perhaps the hardest part was finding tan makeup that didn't just turn my absurdly pale skin orange.
