View Full Version : Mello //Death Note// (Help?)

12-03-2007, 09:13 AM
Okay, I know I might be stressing a bit too soon, since AX is in July, but I buy my badge next week and all..
Plus, my mom won't give me any money for my costume, so I'm stuck using my own money for it. If I don't get it soon, then I'll end up spending the money on something else.

What I need help on:
Finding Mello's costume. And not the one that comes up at the beginning of Google searches.
I want the leather zip up vest, not the quilted one.

Any sites you can recommend??

Come on...anyone??

Have you try ebay or maybe commissioned from somebody?

what you can also try is one of the thrifty stores were they sell donated stuff, I know in this places they have all kinds of things and you maybe able to find something similar that you can modified for a cheaper price.

also, if you're not too finicky, you can sometimes find a satiny fabric or a cotton with a plasticy/satiny finish that works well as a substitute for leather or pleather and is more comfortable and less expensive. i got some pants made of the stuff from a thrift store.

I'm having the vest commisioned now, so I guess I'll just have to browse some stores for the pants.
Every now and then, even Hot Topic gets in leather pants.
