The Penguin by centric-prometheus The Penguin by centric-prometheus
My stint as the Penguin for Wondercon. I hope to retool this costume for a much more elaborate theme.

First cosplay, be gentle! :P

Comments VERY welcomed.

Hey super on the best. I like the eye glass.
The 1966 classic tv show brings back memories.
I think you need an umbrella of some sort or cane.
If you can go to a thrift store where you are... Sometimes you can find canes that have a bird or duck on them. Maybe you can make it into a penguin.
However, love what you did with the penguin. Good job.

 Thank you.
 This was done pretty quickly, so many things were not how I wanted them.
 I plan to get an umbrella and make it looks more like an umbrella gun witha sight and all, I can't wait.

Not bad, where did you get the vest?  I incorporated royal blue in my Penguin outfit recently this Halloween with a blue bow tie and cummerbund.

 The vest was part of the Tuxedo, they came together.

Are you planning on adding an umbrella next ?

I had an umbrella for the actual convention. Hopefully, in the future I will be able to get an antique or more "Gotham" like. :batman:

Thanks, I hope I can one day. I also want to make three fingered gloves like the Batman: Returns Penguin.
Little details seem to make all the difference. :D

Omg, that is amazing. I love you. o_o;; Of course, I could be a little bias since I absolutely LOVE The Penguin character.

No but seriously, I always thought cosplays were amazing and recently I've gotten into them, or I kinda have been into them ever since I was little, but I didn't know there was an actual name for it. I'd love to be in a cosplay con... but... I don't know how you find out where they are and whatnot.

Maybe I should stop rambling yes? But dayummn, sweet cosplay!

Yeah, tis unfortunate they're all so far away from where I live.. New York.. California. My mom isn't that fond of traveling -grumble grumble- But maybe SOMEday....
Would it be so weird if I were to dress up as Penguin at one of those, I mean, me being a girl and all? ^^;

Sorry for all the questions, comments, et. cetera... but.. How many penguin's do you see at those cons? Heh... heh-heh-heh...

Remember, there are always the Penguins lovely henchmen: [link]

A female Penguin is awesome. Everyone liked the female Joker in Thrillkiller.

Ach! No! They don't even come close to the amazing-ness of Penguin! ...And I'm jealous of them. [lol]

By the by, in your picture... is that a real monocle? If so, that's sexy. If not, ..well.. it still looks sexy. I need myself one of those. As well as the shoes you have. Those are sweet. [Penguin's style of clothing is full of class. :nod:] What I use for shoes are penny loafers...

I got the shoes from a jazz dance supplier online. The monocle, is sadly plastic with no glass, but I managed to go the whole day at Wondercon without it popping out or plunging into my eye, so... hehe.
No one loves the Penguin anymore, it's rare. Birds of a feather must stick together.

Oh, indeed! XD I dub you the coolest though. I've never actually come across a guy (well, and talked to him for that matter) that dressed up as the Penguin. :D

I had to smirk and furrow my brow the whole time to keep it in place, hunched my back, bent a little lower and waddled, it was great!

I really like the inclusion of spats and a blue vest. It adds color to a character that is normally depicted as being black in white in terms of costume. :)
