Cosplay How-to and Shopping Guide: Robin Hood Dapper Day

InPlainSight.style’s latest group cosplay was for Fall Dapper Day at Disneyland.  We went as Robin Hood and Little John.

In this post, we’ll break-down Benji’s Robin Hood dapper cosplay using the Team Build Checklist.

Here is a good reference photo to build upon.

This photo has Robin wearing a yellow hat, however, in appearances in the parks and for most of the film, he is wearing a green hat.  So, we went with a green hat.

The Leader and The Brick

Robin’s hat serves as both the Leader and the Brick because his ears are a part of that.  His hat was important to show the character as Robin Hood, but also a dapper version of Robin.

We chose a newsboy cap from Amazon.  Then we purchased a set of fox ears and tail from Spirit Halloween.  I cut the ears off of the headband, cut holes in the hat and worked the ears through the holes.  Then I secured the ears with hot glue.

The Scientist

The Scientist needed to be green shoes, so we found some Chuck Taylor-style shoes from Amazon.

The Exotic

The Exotic needs to be the outfit itself.  What makes him Robin Hood and not just a fox wearing clothes.  Now for the tunic.  A tunic is not dapper, so we went with a button down and tie.  Because Robin is an outlaw, we decided with a business tie, but left undone.  The shirt and tie and both from Amazon.

The pants we went with brown as a substitute for the fox fur legs.

The Blaster

We opted to not do fox make-up because it is Dapper Day and not a full-on cosplay.  WE did need one more item to finish the look.  Because Robin is busy robbing, he needed a money bag to keep his treasure in.  As luck would have it, I found a purse literally shaped like a money bag on Amazon.

Next up is my Little John look.  Until then, happy shopping!

Disney’s “Robin Hood” is my favorite Disney movie of all time, so when I saw this dress, I absolutely had to have one!

I paired it with a white cropped tee to give the dress sleeves.
