Sooo there was a lot of trial and error in this, I was wanting to get as accurate as possible without spending too much so it isn't screen accurate but it's not far off :)

My cosplay style is very junk build, on a budget, use what I have so this would be fine for a fancy dress or for a decent cosplay for a con that you don't want to spend a fortune on.

I kept refering to the images I found online but there are a few good videos on youtube that people have uploaded of their own makes which were also very helpful, give them a watch too.

I started by hand stitching the piping down the base grey long sleeved top, my sewing machine broke so if you have one this will make life a lot easier haha! I also cut the neck out of it so it was much lower.

I made a few attempted at the base one sided waistcoat top as I needed it fitted and it took a few attempts to get the pattern right for my size. I didn't make a seperate top to go under it for the other side in the faun colour, I just cut the side I needed then pinned it to the base grey top. I left the edges raw as I was hand sewing but I do recommend edging it aswell. I turned the suede fabric over to do the piping finishes on the top edging. I used metal popped to fasten it which I then covered with the grey panelling which you can see in the final images, I used double sided tape for them but velcro would be better, I'll be adapting it to use that for the next outing.

The images show a few of the attempts and assembling the outfit with the jeans, base top and the light belt.
