LOL, this was originally what I was going to put my husband in last year, but when I saw the artbooks, I was umming and ahing over the Professor or Antonio, but his hair was just right for Antonio at the time, so I went with that.

However, a couple of weeks before Minami, I needed to give him a haircut... and I indulged my love of cute wolfish etc. and it got a little too short for Antonio. Whoops.

SO! This resulted in me making slight modifications to Antonio's base. Et voila - after sourcing some AWESOME props (the pipe and the birdheaded metal-tipped walking stick), customising the short cape (people saw me sewing on the last arrow clips in the Novotel bar on Friday night, lol), adding the front panel to the robe... Out emerges the Professor! And MY GOD - he was perfect. I love my husband, he's soooooo good for comical photos 'cos he really gets into it!!

Aw, thank you so much for the comment! Yup, I was soooo pleased with this cosplay matchup - I made the costume, but my husband was the one who wore it, he was RIDICULOUSLY well-suited to the character XD
