I love that costume, I made it as a commission for my friend. It's actually very simple, just an altered Victorian getup. Simplicity has patterns for poet/chemise-esque shirts. Cotton blend/ broadcloth would work for that. The only alterations you would do that are the sleeves (there is a length of lace at the wrists and also smocking around the upper arms) and also the neck (there is a tuxedo type of high neck. The easiest thing to do, instead of trying to figure out how to attatch that large bow around his neck, would be to make a bowtie (which is acurate to the Victorian fashion in that sense). There's also a black brooch and some lengths of black lace around the neck.
He wears a floor-length vest type thing. I alterated a vest pattern so that it had a button hidden under the neck tie, and then cut a slight diagonal so it flared out towards the bottom. I recommend velvet, it falls very nicely.
I'd love to see it when it's done, we need more Klahas...ooooor maybe one is enough *shrugs*

Heh yes, my boyfriend is used to my craziness only because in reality, it's all just for picture.

males shouldn't cosplay jrockers unless they want fangirl attetion, period. if your girlfriend has a problem with it, maybe you should pick a new costume. *lol*

I cosplayed that version of Klaha, but it was extreeeeemely ghetto. I hope to redo it someday. e_e

don't forget that the duster is patterned and that the flowers on it are SPARKLY. it's almost invisible on normal pictures, but you can see it really well in the Bara no Seido concerty thingy.
