Costume Information

I'm going to make an Edward scissor hands costume, fully accurate.
My main challenge will be the hands.
I'm planning on making fully working scissor hands except they'll be made out of wood (sorry, I'm not a metal worker) they'll be fully functional and will move hopefully less clumsily than edwards himselves.

the only variation I'm taking with this costume is
my hair won't be black unless I wear a wig. (wig is a possibility)
my scissor hands will (as before mentioned) be wooden, not metal.

will be updating with plans and whatnot.

This is my Favourite movie.
I hope you will do this justice, because omg.
I've seen people cosplay him with the white shirt and trousers, but the full appearance of him. Now that's something i can't wait to see! Good luck! And i think wood would work fine (:

I'm gonna try my best. :) I'm keeping the jacket as close to the original as possible, but i'm not doing leather because I have over heating problems :P
i've already started attempting the voice and begun working on holding my face like he does :P
i'm a huge tim burton fan so i REALLY want to do his character justice :P
