View Full Version : Steampunk Waldo

11-21-2012, 09:07 AM
Hello all.

Im very new to cosplaying (2 cosplays) and this is my first time on cosplay.com. I've had a very good experience cosplaying as Waldo and was thinking of "steampunking" him. (Very interested in the concept) The only problem is, I don't know where to start. Any ideas or advice you can offer would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Hmm, let's see.

He already has glasses, so I'd exaggerate those into some big absurd goggles.

I wouldn't get rid of the bright red on the striped sweater, but maybe tone down the bright white into an aged/cream color.

Maybe exaggerate the stocking cap to make it extra long, perhaps with some deer-stalker style ear flaps.

A bandolier and belt with all sorts of tools to help with hiding - maybe even some invisibility potions? Definitely some maps and other traveling/navigation accessories.

Instead of plan blue jeans/pants, how about some jodphur-style pants, tucked into either some tall boots, or military-style gaiters.

A walking stick of some sorts, with a giant topper - a globe, a compass, a sextant.
