Putting together a Charlie Chaplin costume

The only thing I acually made were the pants, which I made oversized and baggy.
I got a coat second hand and made it into a small tailcoat, and cut the front back into that rounded shape. And used a grater to age it and make it look rag-tag, also rubbed cornstarch into it to make it loook faded. -Which was fun because I had never done that before.
For the hat what I did was colour it black, it used to be light blue.
