Cosplayer RearMedic > Costume of Luke from Professor Layton
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Aside from making the bag and shorts, everything was found as-is. I bought a cap in turkwazz and dyed it a little darker to match my sweater. My sweater is 100% wool by the way. I get hot in there.
I didn't get proper shoes in time and I plan to make some false suspenders to match my bag.
I also made my Layton's top hat and a false collar, which I stitched on over his actual suit collar. I plan on starching the crap out of the hat brim in the future to keep it from doing that weird wavy thing.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I made this to go with my friend (who was just meant to cosplay Professor Layton). We already had a good character dynamic going, so we whipped these out for PAX East!
I had lots of fun and I look forward to perfecting this for future cons.
- Styling Notes
- I had to make do with this because every other wig I tried to get for Luke turned out to be the wrong color and I just ran out of time. The front bangs are THICK, so I had to pin most of them up under my hat.
- Wig Review
- Great wig, just not my first pick for this particular costume.
