Who didn’t love Professor Layton? A cute, charming game with lots of memorable characters. My friend Alielle wanted to cosplay Layton so it seemed obvious to be his sidekick, Luke!

We took these costumes to a few events, and were invited to the exclusive Professor Layton & the Eternal Diva movie premiere in London. It was great to meet other Layton fans and to get some photos of our costumes in London!

All of this costume was bought apart from the hat! Small modifications were made to pieces but it was very easy to put this together from store-bought clothes.

Construction Notes:
The only part of Luke’s costume I made is the hat, which was made by looking up “baker boy” hats online and mimicing the pattern. I bought the jumper first, then looked for fabric to get the best colour match possible. I used a thin cotton for the hat with an elasticated section at the back to fit over the wig. The brim is covered craft foam.
