Get the best cosplay guide to look just like Inigo Montoya.
To look like this special swordsman, you’ll need a few special items, some which haven’t been in fashion for a long time. First, you’ll need long wavy hair. If you’re naturally gifted, good for you. If not, get yourself a Black Curly Long Wig. To complete the makeup, you’ll need a Fake Mustache. As for the clothes, wear a Lace Up Tunic coupled with a Male Renaissance Vest. Below, wear Men’s Chino Pant held together with a Leather Bridle Belt. And you’ll need to wear a pair of Harness Boots. Last but not least, on your pants, you should wear a Leather Sword Frog. In this, you’ll slide a Plastic Fencing sword that will complete the look!
To cosplay like the top swordsman from the Renaissance age and arguably one of the top movies of all time, Inigo Montoya, you’ll need to make some big modifications. Start with the face. You’ve got to match his long luscious locks, which are the envy of women, and his sexy mustache, which is the envy of men. To get both, you’ll need a Black Curly Long Wig and a Fake Mustache. Match a Tunic together with a Male Renaissance Vest. The pants are simple to match with a comfy pair of Men’s Chinos and Basic Leather Belt. Brown leather cowboy boots will get a look that’s close. Finally, strap on your trusty Leather Sword holder while sheathing a trusty Plastic Fencing Sword.
Have your friends join you by cosplaying Westley, Fezzik, or Vizzini before going to battle against your greatest foe, Count Tyrone Rugen. To sell the look, even more, add a little Italian accent that will surely spice things up!
Inigo Montoya’s tragic story starts with his father Domingo, who was a great sword craftsman that disliked the wealthy and stupid. He made a special sword for Count Rugen, the vizier of Prince Humperdinck who had six fingers. But the deal soured when the nobleman went back on his word and did not pay Domingo. The nobleman then killed Inigo’s father. Inigo though only 10-years-old was defeated in battle and scarred on the cheek as so the story goes in The Princess Bride.
Since that fateful day, Inigo Montoya trained to be the best swordsman alive and succeeded. His thirst for revenge was so great that he made it his life’s mission to train for the moment he met his father’s murderer. Even though he was met with repeated failure, with the help of his henchmen, his was able to fulfill his destiny and kill his biggest enemy in the kingdom to finally avenge his father’s death. His skills, ambition, and dedication are one of a kind and an inspiration to many!
