I'm only just into cosplay (See the nice, shiny 1 post count?), and my first project is Dante. I've found a coat on eBay (I don't want to make the coat - I can't make the coat, i'm useless at these things) that looks good, and i'll probably make the sword, seeing as i've done those before. The one thing I can't find is the guns, Ebony and Ivory. Does anyone have an idea where I could get some good replicas reasonably cheap? Thanks in advance!

Only replicas of those I've seen are from Japan- and they tend to run in the low hundreds up and I don't know if they ship internationally.

Rarely, some do pop up on ebay for outrageous prices. Your best bet would be having someone commision them or make them yourself. I think they're modified Colt 45's (1911), so if you get a toy or airsoft Colt and fiddle with it, you should get nice looking guns. :)

I made my pair from some insulation foam and they look pretty good (from a distance, anyways XD) if you want to go a cheaper and more adjustable route.

Good luck, and it's always nice to see more Dante cosplayers. :)

Edit: Hah, found my bookmark site! Here's a good sit with info on the guns and their modifications-

If you're really low on money, you could always get a pair of guns at the local dollar store, they may not be as long as dante's, but I bought a pair and sprayed them with cheap spray paint, they almost look the same as the ones you can buy
