Sirius Black Cosplay Costumes
Sirius was a member of Gryffindor house while at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While sixteen-years-old, he ran away from home and stayed at James Potter’s house. He grew closer with James and eventually Lily after the Potter’s married. Later framed for “killing” Pettigrew while protecting the Potter’s, Harry didn’t trust Sirius. It was only after he escaped from Azkaban that Sirius was cleared of killing Peter Pettigrew. Following his escape from prison, Sirius cleaned up well. Put on a long black cosplay wig, then dress up in a grey striped button-down shirt with a pair of black pants and a tuxedo vest. Finally, you should slip on a green trench coat. Though not needed you can also equip yourself with your wand and pocket watch to get Sirius Black’s complete outfit.

Along with Sirius Black, you join a crew cosplaying Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Severus Snape, and Lord Voldemort.
