Rohan - Jojo's Bizzare Adventure
Katsucon 2020 - Washington DC
Why this costume?
I love Jojo style and this is his Sunday lounging outfit. Versace thong n' all.
Wig: A Kyle provided by Arda Wigs. The hair is steamed to one side. I did some minor teasing then hairsprayed the top layers into place.
The headband is made with leather and painted with gold Angelus paint. and tied with gold elastic in the back.
The suspenders are from Ardene's. I figured gold glitter was on theme
The shoes are also from Ardene's. They are so comfy! The gold fabric is from Cosplay Fabrics and adorned with gold filigrees from Aliexpress and green sharpie coloured gems.
The buckle is Thibra covered foam with metal pins to attach it.
Leg straps are also leather with copper studs and gold button and buckle details.
I got the pen tips from Amazon. I lost my first set so I had to order them twice. I'll find them one day.
Pants: I got a thick satin from the drapery section with some texture to give it more character. I used a men's pants pattern. This was my first time installing proper pockets in pants. Then I added gold buttons as details. The "Versace" pattern was painted using fabric paint medium, silver paint, plus a stencil that I hand cut.
Top: I used sweatshirt fabric and made a basic top the made cut-outs for the arms. I then marked the hole details with a washable marker then used a rotary cutter to cut through both the front and back layers of the shirt. The I carefully did the same for the sleeves and collar.
