Cosplay Oscar "Oz" Diggs - Jacket and Vest Sewing Pattern

Oscar Diggs comes from Kansas in 1905. In the movie Oz the Great and Powerful he refers to his clothing as second hand so we can assume he is not wearing the latest fashions. So his attire would fall into the late 19th or early 20th century. We are able to deduce that Oz would most likely be wearing a frock coat with a vest.

If you are good with a needle and thread you can sew yourself a Wizard of Oz costume suit by following the men's jacket pattern from 1850 - 1915.

The Wizard of Oz costume features a green jacket, plaid pants, and top hat. The pants are more whimsical than Oz wears in Oz the Great and Powerful. They give a more fun relaxed look to the character.

You will also get the bright pattered vest with a white shirt front and black ascot. I like the pop of color the vest adds to the Oz costume giving it more visual interest.


Official Wizard of Oz Costume

Based on the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz this Oz costume reflects how an older Oz appears in the Emerald City. The costume is similar the one that the young Oz wears when he arrives in the Land of Oz depicted in the movie Oz the Great and Powerful; though, he had added some green in his suit's color palette. Perhaps to reflect the Emerald City?
