The Leon costume is taken from the movie Leon the Professional. Leon is a hitman who lives quietly in New York City.

The only thing that interrupts his peaceful life is when he takes hit jobs from the mafia.
One day, the family living next door to him was murdered. The survivor, Mathilda, is a young girl around 12 years old.

Leon feels a reluctant duty to look after the girl after her family passes away. This leads the troubled girl to get mixed up in his life of crime.

Throughout the movie, Leon wears inconspicuous clothing that helps him blend into the crowd while he works his jobs.

DIY Leon Costume Guide

The most eye-catching part of the Leon costume is his long trench coat, so start your cosplay off there. Under the trench coat, you can wear a simple white undershirt.

Over the white undershirt, you can strap on a pair of suspenders. Connect them to the pair of black pants you’ll wear.

Leon wears a simple pair of black shoes on his feet as well as a black beanie on his head. He only accessorizes with a pair of round sunglasses.

Finally, you should carry around a gun prop since Leon is a hitman.

Leon is one of the two main characters in the movie, Leon the Professional. The other is Mathilda.

Leon’s reluctant acceptance of the father role is the main theme of the film. Since Mathilda is important to his character, having her attend an event is a good idea.

And the simple nature of the Leon costume makes it a comfortable choice to wear for long days at cons.
