I blame /co/ and my younger sister for making me do this. I'm not mad though; I like to watch Adventure Time every now and then while working on my college work. It's practically Fallout: the Animated Series.
After Holly Jolly Secrets Part II aired, I just knew that I had to cosplay as Simon, for I simply adore his character both as himself and as the Ice King. Hopefully, I can continue to cosplay as this very important character for years to come.
1.) The Charcoal Suit, MK II - perused from a seller on Amazon. Since I stand at only 5'2", I ordered a Boy's size 14 charcoal-grey, textured suit. If you stand above me, then I would suggest a slimmer-fitting suit over a full one.
2.) The Shirt, MK II - a canary-yellow shirt from the Croft and Barrow line at Kohl's (off-white isn't a bad choice either). The sleeves are held up with two crimson-red sleeve garters from the Gentleman's Emporium, which I find incredibly handy and classy, especially for Simon's character.
3.) The Bow Tie - Amazon. Burgundy or Cranberry is a perfect color. From experience, do NOT go with a bright or neon red.
4.) The Elbow Patches - both are mismatched; one is a light khaki (your right) color while the other is brown (your left). I have actually asked Andy Ristaino, the show's lead character designer, as to what colors Simon's patches were and that was his definite answer.
5.) The Vest - purchased from H&M in the woman's isle, and replaced the buttons with lightly yellow-colored buttons.
6.) The Shoes - black ankle boots bought from Rack Room Shoes. Preferably with a 1-inch heel.
7.) The Scientific Parasite and Pens - Parasite was made from a $2 pack of pink-colored air dry clay and a nail file for stability in the breast pocket, and the pens were part of a pack from Target. In a new batch, a mini magnet was glued to the back of the parasite, and a twin magnet inside the coat was inserted in order to help the parasite from moving around and falling out.
(For a bit of sentimental value, I wear a silver wedding band in order to symbolize Simon's engagement to Betty, albeit they never got married due to the events of the Great Mushroom War, and the antiquarian's eventual mutation into the Ice King.)
