Im planning to make a mello costume for an upcoming anime con and I need a little help =D

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/bluebirds_illusion/MELLO_2.jpg?t=1177080075

Thats the costume I want to make.

A) The jacket

what material is it made of and would anyone happen to have a pattern for it?

B) His belt buckle

Does anyone have a closeup of it?

C) His gun

Anyone know what the model of gun he uses is?

That's about the best and clearest picture of Mello in that costume that you're going to find. I've scoured the manga, looking for pics..and that really is the biggest and the best (nevermind the only coloured one). For different angles of that costume, try searching about the ten chapters before 83.

However, aside from the jacket, Mello is wearing the same costume as he was before his face was blown off (the original one). So maybe there's hope in some of the earlier chapters to find a good picture of the belt buckle. Other then that, you're pretty much going to have to make some educated guesses.

As for the jacket pattern, I'd try just going to a fabric store and having a look in some of their catalogues (probably under jackets or hoodies). It's a fairly common pattern, should be fairly easy to find....

A bit of a necro, but I have found some things that might be useful....

The jacket i think the diamond pattern is called quilted pattern, and it's common on riding vests, his one looks atlot like a riding vest.

And I did find a photo of a belt buckle that looked a hell lot like Mellos... http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w151/cherry_kittles/0002.jpg

It's called a Fleur de lis cross, makes sense I guess as he has alot of Catholic symbolic stuff on him and that is a thing commonly shown with Virgin Mary (Or so Wiki says anyway)

The cover of DN 12 has a good ref picture of mello, he seems to be wearing Doc Martin normal high top boots half laced and wrapped around his ankles *like alot of punks I've seen do) .....>_> I wish I knew this when I bought my shoes for him >_<

...I always thought he had a desert eagle but I guess not then ._.

Mello wears both the high combat looking boots half laced up, wrapped around and tied and a nice dressy boot in the manga.
*not sure what he wears in the anime*
don't feel so bad, for the first day of MetroCon i wore the boots right all day untill they killed my feet. then the next day of the con i wore black flat comfy shoes that looked like crap with the rest of my great Mello costume, but i just couldn't handle wearing those boots again. : ( so as long as you're wearing boots that lace up if your going for the boot look i think it will be ok. ; )
i'm still in the process of looking for new boots before i wear my Mello again.
