Professor Hershel Layton - Professor Layton




Layton is the man. No contest.

I.. am not the man, but shall pay homage to the man. For he is the man.

Or something.

So anyway, whilst hooked on the first game and panicking about a ball costume, one and one did indeed add up to two, and I decided to put together this.

The coat is sewn from scratch, based off a Sherlock Holmes' costume pattern from Simplicity, and butchered to kingdom come.

The hat is made from PVC card, the stiff plastic base from an old gym bag, and a gigantic plastic plug from an old industrial poster tube. It's bloody heavy.

The sweater is, embarrassingly, from the ladies' section of NEXT. You would not believe the hassle it took to find an orange turtleneck sweater. Even when found you would not believe the hassle it takes for a guy to purchase a ladies' sweater. It's not like Christmas isn't coming up or anything :P

I even had little wooden handmade puzzles from a local market stall to foist upon people. Puzzling!
