Costume Information

General
Cost : £40
Time Taken : 1 week. Again.

Description
One week to go, and no costume still. The usual situation I find myself in. I opted to attempt a lesser-cosplayed PW character for once.

Still, for the rushed effort it didn't come out too bad.


The hair and nose are one latex cap -- I intended to make them separate but figured this was easier than messing with spirit gum and hey, I look stupid anyway :P

The majority is a plain suit jacket, with gold buttons sewn down the arms. The tassle-y bits are acrylic-painted styrofoam balls and curtain edging/cording. Much hotglue was involved there.

The bowtie is a cheat, it's just loose fabric sewn and pinned into shape with wire running inside the top bow to keep it upright.. It still didn't stay very upright sadly.

The ring was a lucky find at the local costume shop, looks close enough to work.

The monocle was a pair of broken costume coke-bottle-lens geek glasses, ripped apart and with the end of a black rubber ballpoint pen casing glued on with epoxy resin.

Quite a few people recognised it which is a novel experience XD even had one or two group photos taken, now that's not normal ;P


I didn't get any good photos of myself but eh, what else is new.

It's all one huge custom cap of latex, just the back is all painted black, spikes yellow and the nose flesh-ish.. I did it the same way I've done all my masks, just this time cut out the entire face part, leaving just a thin strip to connect the nose to the hair. I suck at matching my fleshtone ;) I was also wearing a proper latex wig/bald cap underneath which really helps hold the top one in place by just pure friction.
