Bill the Butcher

In Gangs of New York, Bill the Butcher (Daniel Day-Lewis) is the nickname of William Cutting, a ruthless 1860s gang leader and political kingmaker who uses his collection of knives to settle his debates. For the brown skullcap, you'll want to trim the ear flaps of the aviator hat to match the shape.

    I was just wanting to do a William Cutting cosplay. Grew my mustache out for it and everything!
