Sasuke needs formal attire help

Sasuke here!
Need help figuring out what to wear for Aki Con's masquerade ball.
I'm conflicted between a couple of different ideas so thought I'd come here for help making a final decision.

Here's the options (or feel free to suggest anything else I may not have thought of):

Full/traditional formal suit (shirt, suit jacket, suit pants, tie) like this
Black/white button-up shirt with white/black vest (tie or no) like this or this
Black/white button-up shirt with white/black tie (semi-formal/casual)

Whatever I plan on wearing will also have the Uchiha crest somewhere on the back.
Please feel free to leave your opinions on the matter.
I appreciate the feedback!

I like the full suit or the black vest. But honestly, for Sasuke and the type of character he is, I would go with full Japanese formal attire instead of Western formal attire. But that's just me.

I didn't think about doing Japanese formal attire. You mean like a male kimono or something? I don't know if they have a different name. If I can find one/make one that might be an awesome idea. Thanks. Otherwise I'll probably just go with the white shirt/black vest combo.

You could do either a nice kimono or you could do the kimono with the hakama over it. I think that would look really nice. You could do the hakama in black with a nice black or white kimono and then instead of the usual clan crests on the kimono, you could make your own with the Uchiha fan in the circle or something. Look up Japanese mon or kamon and their placement on kimono. I would probably be easy to make a plain kimono and then paint or applique on your own mon.

Yeah after doing a bunch of googling and research, I decided the kimono and hakama combo looks the best for what Sasuke would probably wear. I found a nice dark blue kimono that would look nice with black hakama. My question though, are obi belts still worn with hakama or is that just with kimono? Also thanks for the tip about mon and kamon. I really appreciate it. I'd like to make this as authentic as possible.

That's great you found something in the colors that would look good for Sasuke. And you should still wear a thinner obi over the kimono but under the hakama if memory serves. Just search how to wear kimono and hakama and I'm sure you can find the right way to wear it. I'm glad I could help with the mon/kamon. I have been fascinated by them for a while and love seeing what families are tied to which ones and all. I hope your costume turns out to be what you wanted though. It's always cool to see someone do a formal twist that isn't Western formal.

Yeah I found a YouTube video that shows the process of how to wear them properly. Another thing I just thought of though. This is for a masquerade ball meaning masks are a requirement. Would a mask look good with a formal kimono? I know sometimes the Japanese wear masks with their kimonos for festivals and the like but would it work for the ball? Still going back and forth. I just love the kimono idea so much that I'd hate to not do it lol any thoughts? Thanks for all the support though. I'll send pics of the finished product if you'd like (if I'm able to do this that is ^_^;;; ).

You could always do a Noh or Kabuki mask. Or, hey, since you are already doing a Naruto character, why not wear an Anbu inspired mask?!

And if you get it all together and wear the kimono and hakama to the ball, I would love to see it for sure. You could send pictures to me in a PM or something. And if you have any further questions about the costume or if you want to bounce more ideas off me, feel free to PM me for that as well.

Ok thanks a lot for this. I've definitely learned a lot about formal Japanese attire because of this through you and all the research I've done so far lol and I like the idea about wearing an ANBU mask. It's one of those things where you think, "Why didn't I think of that?" Lol I'll definitely be sure to send pics. Again, thanks a lot! ^^

No problem. Cosplay can be a real learning experience for sure. And I didn't think of the ANBU mask until I was searching and looking at Noh masks and saw one that reminded me of the ANBU and that's when I suggested it. I really can't wait to see how it all comes together for you.

Yes definitely. I'll second the comment about cosplay being a learning experience for sure. I've learned so much about Japanese culture versus Western culture among other things since starting cosplay. Anywho, enough of me getting off topic lol thanks!
