V for Vendetta is a political thriller that is based on the comics of the same name. Created by the Wachowski brothers and published by Warner Bros. Pictures in 2006. The story follows Evey Hammond, a poor and fragile woman who was meeting her first client when she is attacked. She is saved by a mysterious man, who dawns a mask. He calls himself V and brings her to the rooftops where he blows up the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Evey offers to help, to repay a debt of kindness. Evey traverses down a path that will both define and reshape here, with V offering an insight into his past torture’s. V for Vendetta was a commercial success at the box office and was received well by critics.
The V for Vendetta cosplay I will be focusing on will be V’s costume. I will include Evey Hammond cosplay at A later date. Below I have listed links to all the pieces used to bring this costume to live along information on all the items used.
Guy Fawkes mask
No V for Vendetta cosplay would work without the infamous Guy Fawkes mask. I got mine on amazon. A great mask I must say with good detail on it. The quality was great too as it showed no signs of breaking or deteriorating for the time I used it. I’m not a fan of wearing these plastic masks, I often find them very uncomfortable but this was surprisingly comfortable to wear. Overall a great mask and a must for the V for Vendetta cosplay.
V for vendetta costume hat
I went for a V for Vendetta costume style hat on amazon. Now don’t get me wrong this is a good hat for the price but I was kinda expecting more. it’s a cheap hat that did the job for the costume but if I was to do this costume again and I was willing to spend a little bit more money I probably wouldn’t buy this. If you are on a budget then this will do the job no problem.
The black cape I got on amazon. I couldn’t find one that was made for the V for Vendetta costume in minds so picked out the most affordable one while still being a high-quality cape. The cape is made from polyester. It is a big cape, at 5’10 is just reaches the floor for me. I picked this because I saw other reviewers using it for the V for Vendetta cosplay also. The cape looks great with the costume, I had no problems with it. Overall I defiantly recommend this.
The black top I got on amazon. I went for a thermal sweater because it is super cold where I live and I didn’t really want to go out in a skimpy t-shirt. I also liked this because it was plain with no visible branding shown. It is made from cotton so ti was fairly comfortable to wear. A good choice for the V for Vendetta cosplay but a black t-shirt would also do the job.
The black pants, I went for a slim fitted style, I got this on amazon. It is made from cotton and what I suspect is spandex because of how stretchy it is but I can’t be sure as they don’t really tell you. They fit true to size. For the price, I think these are a fantastic pair of black pants. I have actually used these on several other costumes along with casual wear as well so I defiantly got my money’s worth from these pants. Overall A good pair of pants for the V for Vendetta cosplay.
I found some black boots that I used for a previous costume that worked nicely with this cosplay. I good pair of boots that are for the most part fairly comfortable. Sizing was a bit off as I have narrow feet I am one size down from my normal wearing shoes.
Throwing daggers with belt
The throwing daggers I got on amazon. I wasn’t overly impressed with this, I mean it was ok for the price. it worked for the one time I needed it for. Is not adjustable. I would probably make my own version if I was to do this again. It all down to preference. If you want something that’s amazing then this is not it if you want something for one night then this will do the job no problem.
Black leather gloves
The black leather gloves I found on amazon. A good quality pair of gloves made from genuine leather. Quite a thick pair glove that was very rigid at first but soon broke in. I personally didn’t have any problems with the fitting.
Long stem rose
The long stem rose is an optional extra. I thought I would include as it added a nice touch to the costume. I obviously went for a fake one on amazon but there is nothing stopping you from using a real rose. The only problem with the real rose is that you will have to mind it as it will probably fall apart by the end of the night. the fake rose did everything I needed. It looked good as well.
V for Vendetta cosplay Long black wig
To put the final touches on the V for Vendetta cosplay we are going to need the long black wig. I got this on amazon. I went for a female wig as I couldn’t find any for men. This was a good quality wig that didn’t fell uncomfortable while wearing for a couple of hours. the fibres held all night and didn’t shed at all. Overall I highly recommend this wig for theV for Vendetta cosplay.
