The Ultimate Downton Abbey Costume Is The Abbey Itself

Downton Abbey is full of elegant costumes, but Rob Cockerham didn’t go for any of the gentlemen’s outfits. He went bigger – he dressed like the actual Downton Abbey. As in the estate. It shouldn’t be a surprise; this was the man who dressed as a Disneyland map last year.

As far as the construction was concerned, he made a miniature of the grand house from foam board. Then he covered it in printed photos of Highclere Castle (the real life version of Downton). I have to say the finished product looks rather grand.

See a couple of in progress pics after the break.
