Victor Van Dort Cosplay Costume

Like most Tim Burton characters, Victor Van Dort exists in a grayscale, spooky sort of world and his clothes reflect that.

Start with a gray button-down shirt. On top of the shirt, you can wear a gray Victorian coat to mirror the styles of the times. He also wears a brown vest that will peek out from under the coat. 

Next, find a pair of high waist black and white striped pants. On his feet, he wears a simple pair of black Oxford shoes. Finish off his look by wearing a blue scarf as an accessory. 

To really bring the details of the character to life, you may need to replicate the pale skin and dark eyes by wearing face paint to really bring Tim Burton’s vision to life. 

To make this costume even better, you can have someone else dress up as Emily and accompany you to your next costume party, Halloween party, or convention.
