I went to see Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhands at the Liverpool Empire yesterday. It was beautiful. I'll be posting a review soon. This seemed like a good opportunity to Cosplay the man himself.

The main body of this outfit is super easy to do. It consists of items I think most people will have in their wardrobe already. Leather jacket, black jeans, black boots and a belt. You can leave it here and still have a great casual cosplay look. However as you make have picked up already I like to add accessories and other items to represent more of the story in my outfit.
Under my leather jacket I have on a striped top with a sequinned heart. I chose this to represent the innocence and sweetness shown in Edwards character. Of course if you wanted you could simply wear a black to but I wanted to break up the black with a little colour.
Ok so I couldn't Cosplay Edward Scissorhands without any scissors could I? I made this bracelet myself. I plated long pieces of grey waxed cotton thread and added scissor charms at regular intervals. I simply wound it round my wrist and tied it with a knot.
I went for a slightly gothic twist on my usual make-up. I didn't go whole hog and wear pale foundation but I did go for dark eyes and dark lips. The lip colour I used was Collection 2000 Gothic Glam 2 - Scorned. It's a sumptuous deep purple and toned in nicely with the heart on my top. To finish off my look I added black nails with a hint of sparkle.
I loved cosplaying Edward at the theatre I really enjoy it when my cosplay matches where I am going. I feel extra sneaky, Ninja Nerd was in full effect!
Let me know what you think of my Edward Scissorhands Cosplay.
