Like probably half the world, I now have a hankerin' to cosplay the new Q. I've loved James Bond for years, but this is the first time I've seriously considered a real cosplay from it.

Has anyone ID'd his cardigan? I'm not a knitter though I could modify something similar as long as it had the ribbing down the arms already.

Also... any thoughts on where to get glasses like that without buying frames from a real glasses store? I've never seen his glasses as fakes before.

EDIT: Apparently, according to a few fashion people on tumblr, the actual cardigan is $600. Yeah, not something I want to pursue... but I do have a few inexpensive ideas. I'll post them if they work out.

Also, found his mug on Spoon Sisters and ordered it. I'll photograph it when it comes in.

I think the movie products are these:
http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/product/dries-van-noten-cardigan
http://www.coastal.com/thelook/skyfall-qs-glasses/

These frames look almost the same, but without the times and divide signs in the corners.

Or maybe you could start with some clear frames and sharpie the top half black.

I found some that work quite well by searching "wayfarer fade" on ebay. It took a little playing around looking at glasses to find them. The only difference is that they don't have the silver studs in the corners, but I'm adding them with beads tonight. The costume should be passable by the con I'm doing three weeks from now.

Thanks for the links! That helps with figuring out how to do his cardigan.

...Can I just hug you, OP? I'm so happy I'm not the only one doing Skyfall/Bond!verse cosplays. <3

I totally forgot to post that I'd finished the costume! Well, I'd like to switch for better glasses at some point (the ones I ordered turned out to be tinted around the bottom despite the pictures), but otherwise...

I'm kind of surprised I never did anything specifically Bondverse before this because I've been a fan for about 15 years. I am working on a new Bond-themed burlesque costume, but that doesn't count.
