I originally wore this for Halloween in '05, but in '09 had a friend do a professional job with the hair/make-up and took better pictures in it. It was a pretty simple costume, mostly consisting of things I already had. I got the vest from the thrift store and spray painted it black for a more textured, dark look. The jacket was also from the thrift store. I sewed it up the back to be as fitted as possible and added my own buttons. I made the ascot from scratch.
