Heyy everbody! I'm planning on cosplaying as Mello with my friend who's going to be cosplaying matt and I just have a few questions...

1) can anyone help me find a vest like his? Any links for the pants would be great too! ^.^ Ive searched for days and all I could really find is junk. I found a Mello cosplay that seemed right but the pants were sewn weird and it was extremely expensive.

2) What types of boots does Mello wear? I couldnt really tell from the anime and I havent seen the manga yet.... can anyone find any good screenshots or pictures?

3) His jacket, either the red or black one he wears. Any ideas where to find one? And the belt too!

Gosh..... I'm basically asking for help on the entire cosplay.... lol anyways, any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!

Here you go, buddy. I scanned this from my own Death Note guide book, hope it helps.

Really shows how his coat and shoes look like too.

Alrighty, I helped my Mello get their entire cosplay together, so I might be of some help (such a loyal Matt here, huh? XD)

First off, I know you can buy pleather pants at Hot Topic (though they are seasonal, you can buy them on sale on the website usually). However, these pants don't lace up in the front. They work fine, though. If you're feeling really ambitious, you can alter the front of the pants (take out the zipper, put in laces).
ALSO, depending on how much money you want to spend, you could buy some lace up leather pants HERE (http://www.jaminleather.net/prodinfo.asp?number=LP505LL)
Mind you, they are actual leather, so the price is kind of high up there, but you can find imitation leather pants online as well.

The vest we actually got at Ross. They had a ton of them in over the past few months and we got a few. XD I know they are actually in season right now, so jump on that!

And Koisnake's link there is the greatest guide you'll ever get. <3

while we are on DN cosplay, i want to do matt. im going to make it a female matt (make his costume sexy and girl shaped) because im too lazy to put my hair in a wig and i have the same\similar hair color. im having trouble with his pants though. some people, to get the lines, said they cut the jenes and sewed them back together fuzz side out. any other ideas?
