Lelouch is a handsome, young man with black hair and violet eyes, which he inherited from his mother. He usually wears the Ashford Academy uniform, or the Zero uniform. For this cosplay we are going to choose the Academy uniform.
Let’s start with the hair: you will need a black wig styled with some hair strands all over your face. Look at some images to get inspiration from.
And now, let’s see how this aristocratic uniform needs to be:
– Shoes: on your feet just wear black boots. Easy.
– Trousers: regular black trousers. It’s seems that this is not going to be that hard after all.
– Shirt: you can wear a regular white shirt, just in case you plan to open your jacket (if your jacket even opens).
– Jacket: oh, ok. Here we have reached the tought part. This is not a jacket you will easily find, you will have to make it. The jacket is tailored with a high collar, like a mao jacket but higher… more like a turtle neck. It is double vented on the front and back and it is fitted with a simple black belt. The wole jacket is edged in gold with two lines going up from the slits on the back and a central shape going up to the middle part of the collar on the front. Look at some reference images to edge the central piece correctly, for this is the most important part of the costume. You can use thermal adhesive golden vinyl to keep it easy, or you can do it the old way (which looks much better of course). On the corners of the central piece you will need to add two golden covered buttons, one at each corner. And on the collar sides, a “fleur de lis” like emblem, in golden too (again, you can use vinyl here). And with that, the hardest part ends.
So, there’s only one thing missing; your eyes. They have to be violet. The solution for this is also pretty simple, just get a pair of contacts: https://www.icrazyangel.com/collections/wild-eye-crazy-contacts/products/purple-monster-eye-crazy-lenses
