Manuel Costume
By Moragoth - Gallery - Monday 12th November 2007 @ 6:00 PM

This Halloween I dressed up as Manuel Calavera for this years students Halloween reception. I can say that it was VERY popular, most of the people didn't know who I was dressed up as and came up to me to ask, but there was also a huge amount of people that recognised me and really really liked the costume because it brought back a lot of old memories. But what surprised me was the girl that came up to me and seriously asked if I was dressed up as a member from the KKK.
To make the costume I bought an old suit, I didn't find a blue suit that looked authentic enough so I went for a black one. I made the cap out of 2 large pieces of cardboard and I used some make-up that my room-mate had bought. And I would like to thank the toy store for having a Scythe that I could dismantle and have under my suit.

From the thumbnail it looks like he has sun glasses on.

The jacket still looks good, and the tie is on the dot. Maybe you could get someone to photoshop your jacket with a blue tent in this picture, and you'd be on the money

I thought a few would recognice me, but there might have been like 15% of the people at the reception.
