Recently rebooted for Netflix, the Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events television show brings back to life the characters from the beloved book series. The Baudelaire orphans, of which there are three, are the protagonists. Middle child Klaus Baudelaire, a decidedly bookish young man, has a clean-cut sense of style. Follow our guide, and we can help you recreate his look.
We suggest a Polo Ralph Lauren Red Cable Knit Crewneck Sweater over a Van Heusen White Solid Point Collar Dress Shirt. A fitted Andrew Marc Plaid Sport Coat with some Dockers Gravel Slim-Fit Flat-Front Pants matched with a pair of PenSee Vintage Round Glasses. For shoes, we recommend IZOD Brown Cabot Oxfords.
If you’re a book fan looking for a crossover character to cosplay, book lover Klaus Baudelaire comes highly recommended. While his style is geek chic, it is easily replicated. You have a number of options for his outfits because thus far he has been in 3 publications, in books, a movie and most recently a television series. Though his clothing is fairly similar in all three, you can choose the look you identify with most.
The easiest way to make your character stand out is to include other characters from the series and make it a group effort. You can represent the surviving Baudelaire children by adding older sister Violet or baby sister Sunny. Having a friend go as Lemony Snicket himself would add a fun element to your group cosplay. You should definitely check out our featured pics for more style ideas. As always, we welcome your personal submissions as well!
