The chance to dress up as Robert Pattinson is a dream many can only dare to dream of. For many, it’s their only chance to get their fix of the ‘Bond King’ and see him in a new light. When Robert Pattinson arrives in your town, you can bet your boots there will be a crowd waiting.
Here’s what you need to know if you’re going to cosplay as Robert Pattinson.
Become A Member Of A Society
When you want to really put your best foot forward and make the most of your opportunity to dress up as the ‘Bond King’, then join a society. There are plenty of cosplay societies around the world where you can join in the fun and earn points to spend on new outfits.
Joining a cosplay society is a great way to learn more about the character you’re portraying and their fashion choices. It can also help you find fellow enthusiasts who can provide you with tips on how to become the best possible version of your character.
Decorate Your Home
If you really want to put your best foot forward and show the world your passion for all things ‘Bond’, then why not treat yourself and decorate your home with the iconography associated with the ‘Bond’ franchise?
There’s no secret that the ‘Bond’ films are incredibly stylish and sometimes glamorous, and you can bring some of that style into your own home. If you’re a big fan of the ‘Bond’ films, then why not channel that style and make your home a reflection of James Bond’s world?
With some simple decorations like cushions, lamp shades and scatter cushions, you can bring a touch of the sophisticated style Bond is known for. If you want to go over the top, then why not? You can even get a small chandelier to represent the famous ‘Bond’ smoke ring. With some accessories like these, you can make your home a true reflection of the films.
Create A Media Campaign
If you really want to make the most of your ‘Bond’ moment and have everyone know how much you love the films, then why not create a small media campaign? With the right planning and forethought, you can make sure that everyone in town knows about your great big ‘Bond’ moment. There are plenty of celebrities that could be on board for a media campaign like this one, and it’s never been easier to get in touch with them. With a little planning and research, you can expose your town and its residents to the glamour and style of ‘Bond’ and remind them all why they love the films so much.
Learn The “RP Effect”
What is the ‘RP Effect’ you may ask? Let me clarify. When it comes to the ‘Bond’ films, there is a special effect that happens when fans and citizens see Robert Pattinson. Essentially, the more people see you, the more you will become. This phenomenon is often referred to as ‘Robbing Peter to pay Paul’ and it has been seen in towns and cities all over the world where the ‘Bond’ films have been screened. The more people that see you as a Bond fan, the more you will resemble James Bond himself.
If you want to truly look the part, then why not embrace this feature and use it to your advantage? If you’ve already got a good look-alike with you (and you’re a decent actor), then why not have them act as your stand-in while you get some photos taken? You can study the ‘Robbing Peter’ phenomenon and see how many people want to dress like James Bond. If you play your cards right, you can become Robert Pattinson’s best friend and inspire millions. This is the essence of the ‘RP Effect’.
Of course, this is all dependent on you looking the part. There are plenty of books and courses that can help you improve your existing looks. With a little bit of work, you can become the best possible version of ‘Bond’ that you can be. Then, and only then, will you truly be able to join in with the ‘RP Effect’ and show the world that you are, indeed, James Bond.
