Hello everyone~
This is my second time cosplaying, first time as Tuxedo Mask. I'm looking for some help!~ Thought this would be the best place to post haha :)

I still have a few days until the con this weekend. Here is what I have so far (see attached picture below). Please feel free to point anything out! :D I really would love to hear what you think and make improvements on it before the con.

and the main issue I'm having right now is with the wig. It's my first time wearing a wig and it's been tough haha (It would've been perfect if I still had long hari, but I cut it since it's summer lol oh well). I was wondering if you think I should keep the wig? cut it? style it? or just go with my mid-length hair (with shaved sides). (see picture below. left two are wigs, right is real hair)

Overall, I'd say it looks really good. The cape needs some serious ironing, though. Also, I can't tell if your mask is too wide or the brim of your hat is not wide enough. Either way, the proportions on one or both of them is a bit off. Maybe Google more pictures of Tuxedo Mask and make the decision for yourself.

Other than that, you might want to paint the button and the silver stud/button things near the pockets black. It looks like you are using black jeans, which look surprisingly well with the rest of the costume if that is case, but the buttons shouldn't be so noticeable, like you were wearing dress pants. That should be a quick fix.

Good job!

Thanks for the reply AwkwardMarkie! :D
I think you are right. The the proportion's way off haha xD It was pretty hard to find a top hat like his. I think I'm going to add more fabrics to the brim and widen it out :) really good call!

and Yes. They are black jeans :P I tried my dress pants. They are slim, but not skinny enough so I decided to go with skinny jeans X3 I will paint the buttons like you said! :D I never even noticed them haha really good catch! Thank you so much! :)

Good call. The slim fit does look good, and from the pictures I can't tell much of a difference between the fabric in the coat and the pants. Have fun at your convention!

This looks great! A little added feature that would be nice would be a rose. I'd recommend buying a fake one for the sake of having to buy an expensive flower every time.

Thanks! there was actually a magic store at the convention so I bought this prop rose haha I ended up spending most of my time at the con doing cheesy magic trick to people since the con was so broing XD
you can see me doing my trick at 1:30 in this video [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn0aFSG_EWc&list=FLhhjVM1U2gx4jYrBYhxKUvQ&index=1[/url]
