Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

This costume is so ridiculous that I literally am afraid to wear it at conventions. Still, I am pretty fond of this costume in a strange way. I usually do such (relatively) tasteful costumes; I doubt I'll ever have the bravery to do something so silly ever again.
Since I based this costume off an artbook picture of Max, the costume is red, not pink. The main fabric is some sort of shiny, stretchy fabric that's like tricot lame but much thinner. I've been using my Red Whirlwind cape temporarily but there's an utterly ridiculous confetti-dot version in the works XD. The hat is a buckram base I covered in the same fabric as the jacket and pants. The feather and mask were purchased at a costume shop, and I added gold studs to the mask. The card design on the jacket was painted on with gold fabric paint. The symbols around the pants were made from plastic sheeting and craft foam. Last but not least, the "manchest" is a cotton/lycra blend leotard that I painted. I want to redo this once I get an airbrush, since I did this with a paintbrush and it wasn't the best way to go about it.
Since Max wears platform boots, I am utterly enormous in this costume ^^;.
