Well, I'm being Mello for a Con, and I have no clue what to do for his top. I know he wears leather pants, but I don't know where to buy them from. I don't know where to buy the top either. Any suggestions? Please help!

Its like.. a qulited leather vest I believe. I see them quite often. I am cosplaying as Mello, so I will shoot you a post when I find one. You may have to modify it, or make it on your own.

His pants are lace-up leather pants... I searched for some online, but all I could find was male fetish pants... Heh... Oh Mello...
I was planning to remake my Mello for this year... but it's just too expensive for me to just gather everything I need...
No wonder so many people cosplay L, Near or Light... it's so CHEAP compared to Mello. ><

For the jacket, I actually didn't go with leather, (in the manga his vest looks kind of shiney, which makes me think leather - however this isn't the case in the anime, and I made his anime feathery trenchcoat so I went with no leather) but I modified a pattern for a jacket and used quilted black broad cloth.
As for his pants, I just got leather pants that fit right and put in gromits and lacing myself.

Yeah I know.
their the cheapest out of everyones.
But my friend is going as L, and plus I didn't really want a easy outfit.
I saw how mello's looked so I wanted to cosplay as him.
Thank you all for helping me! ^-^
