So Natanel how do you feel about crocks for the professional practitioner of the noble arts?? jk m8 Smile

Im looking for a practical costume for a mix of contact juggling and magic act routine. It would also be more for the busking on the streets with possibilities of paid gigs.

The problem is with Contact juggling everything is much smoother the less cloths you wear, but as magicians we are very fond of our Jackets Smile. so my first thought was using the CJ for the lure then in pretending not to notice then when I do stop and seem surprised. Make a couple jokes put on a informal jacket or blazer and move onto the rest of the show. I tend to like jackets and hats so its a lil bit of a pain for me to part with them xD

I think that something like this jacket would fits my char/persona, and I like the whole look, but still I would find myself wearing a t-shirt underneath

of course on days I don't add the juggling to my act I would prefer the long sleeve shirt. BUT EITHER WAY IM KEEPING THE #$%& HAT! Smile

Also as a second curiosity what is everyone personal opinion of the steampunk fad? Stands out a bit yet has the Victorian era class I think.

Welcome to the magic Café.

Everything you say makes sense to me. I like your look.

I have no idea what the steampunk fad is.

Ty sorry for the very late response, been using my phone lately and was having site issues.

Ty again for the welcome it has been a great stay so far and Iv learned a lot. Also the pic isn't of me just in case. It is the same style I use and pretty much same jacket/hat. I was just worried that putting my jacket on to begin the magic show would make people seem suspicious, but on second though I suppose if I make it look natural enough it wont make a difference

Steampunk is one of those things that's awesome if done right but it's done wrong 99% of the time. Basically it only looks good on models who would never in their right mind do that unless they weren't paid to stand around at a comic book convention.

It's a shame all the cute girls wear north faces and uggs while the really outlandish comic book stuff is generally worn by overweight kids who played brass instruments in high school band. In my dream world that nonsense is completely inverted.

So that picture is not you, and you are really a short, fat, bald guy. In that case I suggest that you get yourself some of those steampunk pants. LOL

In all seriousness unless you are as tall, skinny and gifted in facial bone structure as the guy in the picture you probably shouldn't dress like him.

DANG YA CAUGHT ME, but not really bald I kinda got the frier tuck thing going on! its personal choice.

No I only used that for ref since I wasn't necessarily asking for fashion advice as much as practicality, and that was a idea. I also don't have a single picture of me performing or going out to perform oddly enough. His character was actually what led me to develop my characters persona in a way. I seem to pull it off alright tho

Luckily I am tall and skinny AND a full headof hair (hope it stays that way) but maybe Not as blessed as him with the cheekbones
But heres my most recent one Smile think my cheekbones could manage? Smile
