Cosplayer TseUq > Costume of The Baron from Cat Returns, The
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Made pretty much entirely the afternoon/evening before I left for Fanime 2011; finished the tail coat, packed my bag, and drove to the airport. I had wanted to do a 'proper' tail coat, however when it came to crunch time I just decided to do it the easy way and ignored the proper methods for lapels/collars and the like. Regardless I think it all came out pretty decently. I patterned the vest and used a basic coat pattern then of course altered it for the tails and lapels. The top hat was originally a black top hat I purchased and ended up doing about 20 (wish I was kidding) coats of paint with the awesome help of my friend Colleen, who I also forced into making my bow-tie XD (ilu).
- Personal Thoughts:
- 'The Cat Returns' is my favourite Ghibli creation; I can re-watch it over and over. It never really occurred to me to cosplay from it all the times I watched it. But I just love the Baron so much and really wanted to cosplay from a Ghibli film and nothing else peeked my interest. I didnt want to make a furry suit XD so knew from the beginning I wanted to attempt some make up techniques Ive never done before. After I got 'Sumikins' to watch it with me she agreed to cosplay Haru, and really was the push I needed to actually do this cosplay. THANK YOU! I am happy with how it came out, but definitely know of what and how I can do differently/better the next time I wear it.
