Rip Van Winkle (Millennium outfit)
Last Updated: 05-01-2009
The character wears this outfit in the Manga 4 - 5 - 8 en OVA 4. The costume wasn't really difficult to make. Like the white shirt and the tie can be bought in stores. The suit was just a regular black marine style suite. The patterns can be found easily on the internet or you can just use an old suite to get the patterns. Mine was made from a regular pattern that I have adjusted here and there. The suit was ready within the week.
The umbrella was bought from a store. For the clock, you can use a regular clock and paint it pink. I bought a cheap one and took it off together to make the happy face and to paint the frame. The happy face was made on Photoshop but you can also use simple programs like Word or Paint.
The musket was made by a friend. I designed the musket and the details on it. It was made out of beechwood, leadpipe and a real working flintlock mechanism. I think for this costume, the most difficultest part was the musket.
