Mr. Saito from Inception

Mr Saito (played by Ken Watanabe) is the head of Proclus Global in the film Inception.  A rich and powerful man, Saito is originally targeted by Cobb and Arthur.  However, once Saito realizes he is in a dream, he seeks to recruit them for a job of his own.  In the opening dream sequence, Saito wears a tuxedo that combines traditional Japanese garments with more Western silhouettes.  A similar look can be achieved by using the top portion of a nagajuban or a hanjuban undergarment.  Either way, it is best to choose one with pleats or grey details to best exemplify Saito’s costuming.

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan…. Where to begin? The first time I heard Bob Dylan sing, I wondered why he sounded like John Lennon. Turns out, John Lennon wanted to sing like Bob Dylan!

Chuck Greene from Dead Rising 2

Chuck Greene from Dead Rising 2

Chuck Greene (voiced by Peter Flemming) is a former motocross champion, a widower, and a father that will do whatever it takes to protect his daughter. Sometimes that involves fighting off the undead. Sometimes it involves things a little crazier. Chuck has the skills to handle it, though. And for as long as he can, he’s going to keep his daughter safe.

Chuck Greene is a great cosplay for those who want to be comfortable. He wears black boots, blue jeans, and a motocross jacket in yellow and black. His weapon of choice is the Paddlesaw (when he can’t ride a Slicecycle) but those aren’t exactly easy to make. A kayak paddle is a good start to one, though!

Tricky the Clown from Madness Combat

Tricky the Clown from Madness Combat

Violent. Sadistic. Insane. Tricky is not what anyone would call a good person. But he does make for an excellent cosplay.

You will need a bald cap to achieve his look as well as face paint and a red clown wig. The listed wig already has an included bald spot that you will either have to paint or cut out and attach in a different way. Green gloves cover your hand while a gray tunic and gray shoe covers round out the look. You can use foam to make a mask or the his road sign for a few extra pieces.
