A few years back my youngest son, Brandon, made this costume for Halloween. He won a couple of contests that year!
Brandon - thrift store junkie like myself - found about everything needed to make his costume at the thrift stores. He started with a black leather jacket that was too large. He got out the sewing machine and fixed that problem. The black leather pants were almost too tight but he managed to squeeze into them, (what's a little discomfort when you have an awesome costume!) He refashioned several belts into the jacket adornments.
Brandon doesn't settle for average so he amped it up one more notch with the scissorhands. He cut out individual scissor shapes from very thin plywood, painted them and attached them to black leather gloves. The really cool thing is though, that he attached all the scissors to a working mechanism so that he could actually move them (together or individually) with his fingers...now that's amazing! I know I'm his mom but still...amazing!!
He did his own make-up and finished off the look with a wig. Now that's about as close as anyone can get to the real Edward!
