A Wearable Version of Downton Abbey

Considering a Downton Abbey costume for your next convention, for a theme party, or for next Halloween? You could dress like one of the many lords, ladies, or downstairs staff in the series, or you could dress like the actual estate. Rob Cockerham made a wearable version of the Abbey which is actually Highclere Castle. He constructed the costume from foam board and images of the castle he printed from the web.

The layout of the castle ended up being more complex than he expected since the building is more than four flat walls. To get a better idea of the castle’s perimeter, he decided to start by printing the walls on several sheets of paper that he then had to cut out and put together like a puzzle before attaching it to the foam board with spray adhesive. Once the exterior was secured, he carefully assembled and glued the entire building together.
