Modern!Kili from The Hobbit (How can I make this better)

I tried to find modern equivalents of the shirt, tunic, coat, etc, that seemed feasible for the character and were about the right colour scheme. Didn't try for the gear, because there is no way to make that look casual modern.

The wig needs work, though I'm not sure if I should try to do something to it or just get a darker one that works better. I thought of calling it a compromise between book and movie verse, since in the book, he and Fili are both described as blond. I am rather proud of the stubble, which is chopped up wig fibre spirit-gummed in place.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.
