Created by William Goldman in 1973, Inigo Montoya is an expert Spanish fencer who worked as an assassin for the Sicilian criminal Vizzini. Inigo’s father Domingo was commissioned to make a sword for Count Rugen when Rugen returns to pick up the sword, he gave Domingo much less than he was promised. Angered by this, Domingo refuses to give the sword to Rugen and is killed because of it. Inigo, who at the time was eleven years old, witnessed the incident loved to become expert swordsmen to exact revenge on the death of his father.
For the Inigo Montoya costume, we will be focusing on the film version as it gives us a visual representation of what Inigo’s costume. I will place links below to all the products used to put this costume together along with descriptions of the items as well.
Inigo Montoya Beige tunic
The Inigo Montoya costume beige tunic I got on Etsy. It is a 1960 tunic made from buckskin leather. It has some nice decorative threading with a very low cut. This was the best I could find for the tunic used in the Inigo Montoya costume. It is a unisex piece but I would contact the seller to ensure your measurements are adequate for this product. As for the quality, it is very good feels and fits great. Overall a great Inigo Montoya costume tunic.
leather long vest
For the leather vest, I found this on Etsy as well. It’s a very simple and clean piece with no over the top decorative pieces on it which I actually like. It comes in many sizes as well. It’s now real leather but I’m sure you know that based on the price but the faux leather feels pretty good and looks like a high-quality piece. The sizing was good also. Overall a great leather vest, perfect for the Inigo Montoya costume
Inigo Montoya Fencing sword
The fencing sword I got on amazon. This is a beautiful fencing sword. The blade is made from stainless steel and the point is quite sharp so be careful. The sword is contracted very well. It comes with a guard. I must admit I don’t know much about these swords but I do know that this will defiantly work for the Inigo Montoya costume. It is quite big, about 5 feet. Overall a great addition to the costume.
Inigo Montoya Frog belt
The frog belt, I got on amazon. The frog belt for those of you who don’t know is the holster for the fencing sword. It attaches to your belt. It is made from PU leather. I wasn’t 2 overly have with this. It was very cheap and the quality was there but I wasn’t expecting much because of how cheap it was. Overall an ok purchase for one-time use and it will work with the Inigo Montoya costume.
The brown boots, I got on amazon. These are a pirate style boot but it was the closest boot I could fin that matched the look of the cosplay. They are comprised of polyurethane with synthetic sole. I found the material to be very soft and flexible. I bought them in my normal size but I found them to be quite big so I would advise you to order a size smaller than what you normally wear. Overall a good quality boot, ideal for the Inigo Montoya costume.
Inigo Montoya long curly wig
The Inigo Montoya Wig, I found on amazon. I didn’t get a wig for this costume but I thought I would include one to complete the look of the costume. I picked one that best matched the hairstyle of Inigo Montoya. It works for the most part. I cannot comment the quality of this wig as I didn’t buy it. It has one positive review with a picture suited if you want to check that out.
For the Inigo Montoya moustache, I got a fake pack on amazon. These came in packs with 3 different types of moustaches available. I only used the one for this costume but I’m sure the rest will come in handy for other costumes. These were very simple moustaches,nothing overly complex but I liked that. They sick on through the adhesive and they stay on for the whole night with no problems. Overall great fake moustaches that really bring Inigo Montoya cosplay to live.
Dark brown pants
For the pants, I went with a pair of renaissance style, I got these on amazon. I really didn’t know what to look for when it came to picking the pants so I went for dark brown renaissance pants. These worked pretty well and the quality was good. They sizing was accurate as well.
For the belt, I got on amazon. I went for a simple brown belt. If you have a belt already which you probably do go with that. There is no need to buy a new one unless you want to. In that case, I have the perfect one for you already picked out that I used.
