Costume Information

Cost : 0
Time Taken : 2 Days

I love Hitman Reborn but all the cool characters are taken or are too young for me to cosplay...

WAIT A Minuet!!!


Sadly the only thing i will actually be making is the Pickaxe(or so i thought) as i already have almost everything i need for the cos so this is just to be a quick and easy fun costume.

I have an Orange Jumpsuit left over from a Stag Weekend, A White Vest, I found some boots which suit, I found some white gloves in my dads shed (sorry dad), i have since bought a Miner Helmet and Wig and plan to make the pick axe.


Okay for a simple cos i had to do a fair amount of work, the Cornish Miners Helmet i got form ebay i will assume was antique as it was the rustiest thirstiest think id ever seen, so i rubbed it back to its original steel (which was the most time consuming part of this cos). Once it was rubbed back i painted the Helmet in yellow Hammerite to protect it.
I also hand washed the inner webbing which was a mistake as when it dried it crumbled away so i had to make a new one and re string it to the helmet..

The wedding suit was entirely bought..

The Gloves are almost white however they have brown bias round the bottom edge so im adding white bias on top so it wont show.

The Pickaxe im planning to make out of polystyrene for the head and i'll buy a handle from BanQ

Orange Jumpsuit - Found
Boots - Found
Vest - Found
Pick Axe - Making one to be con safe :)
White Gloves - Found and re Biasing
Wig - I Now Have
Miner Helmet - Bought refurbished and sprayed
