The new Question. I based the costume on Cully Hamner's designs; really, the suit should be blue, but I couldn't find a jacket in the right color and didn't have time to make one from scratch, so I went with a black suit and blue shirt instead.

The fedora was white straw; I painted and re-banded it.

The hardest part hands-down was the mask. I built a wire frame--similar to what's described here--and covered it with nylon (cheesecloth would probably have been easier to work with and sat more smoothly, but I went through about half a bolt between unsuccessful dye attempts). I could *sort of* see through it--light and dark contrast, mostly, which meant I had to fit it by taking photos with my webcam because I couldn't see *anything* in the mirror.

Spot the meta:
