Baron Humbert von Gikkingen (White Tuxedo) - The Cat Returns Studio Ghibli


Manchester MCM Expo 2012

Cosplay competition Japan day Liverpool 2013




Baron Humbert Von Gikkengen. His main outfit from the Ghibli film The Cat Returns. The head was fully created by me using foam, a balaclava and fur, the eyes are made of plastic bowls painted, I see through the 'tear ducts' of this head rather than through the eyes. The pics are of the nearly completed outfit. I have the Tuxedo Jacket but it is not on in the main pic here. Trousers, shirt, gloves, tie, hat and tuxedo jacket were purchased separately as it was cheaper to buy these things than make them from scratch.

Baron won the cosplay competition at Japan day Liverpool 2013

This is a pretty cool cosplay! Will you wear it to any other cons? I've love to see it :P

I will be wearing Baron @ Ayacon in August, but i may also be wearing him to japanday @ liverpool too as he is my fave anime cosplay! He is going to get plenty of wear this year as I have also prepared his blue / ballroom outfit.
