Back Reference?


Costume Information

So this took way too long for me to put up? But this is for May Expo '13!

It took me a while to decide who I'd like to cosplay to be honest and I was originally stuck between Joly and Combeferre but I did eventually decide that I prefer both Joly's costume and also Joly in general...!

This will be the movie version because I'm new to Les Mis as whole, and I quite like the movie costume actually. Not looking forward to short wig though (even though it has been pointed out that really it isn't that short~) because I'm paranoid I wont get it right!

I can't start the costume /just/ yet because I want to lose a bit more weight before I try and be a sexy crossplay man and I don't want to make clothes that I'll have to adjust again later too much.

I can start gathering props though and I'm quite looking forward to getting a sexy-ass flag and also a pipe and also some kind of flintlock pistol (or whatever it is they have? I'm not good on weaponry)

EDIT: I didn't get this done for Expo as I originally wanted so it's been put aside for now. I still want to get it done, but at my current skill level I don't think I can do it justice.

My precious hypochondriac darling ;; So happy to see you're cosplaying him, you're going to look fantastic hun. And don't worry too much about short wigs, you tend to go ".... Wot :| " when you first put them on but you'll look fine. And like you said, it's not as short as it could be.
Seriously can not wait for this. Ahhhhhhhh 8D 8D
