Costume Information

Here we go again!

It's been more of a case of sourcing and buying times then making this time. Thankfully I found an amazing shop on ebay full of colourful ex-rental tuxedos- I found a pretty good match for the one he wears in the film. I'm waiting anxiously for it to arrive.

Same with the shirt- it was quite hard to find what I was looking for- but I've hopefully found a good match. Again- waiting for it to get here.

The shoes were tricky as they only really come in mens sizes in the exact style he has- so I have opted for some patent white brogues instead- as they will mostly be covered by the trousers.

His corsage has very kindly been bough by my cosplay partner for me! I'm going to have to make the poor thing grimy and beaten up.

I have a large chunk of makeup left over from regular Betelgeuse- I just have to get more fake nails. I think I will have to re-make the wig however. The style at the end is much less clumpy with a distinctive comb over.
