I got a Fallen black/white shirt at blackholeboards.com. Kinda expensive, but the only place that sells those shirts anymore. I bought it a month ago, so idk if it's still in stock. :/

Seriously...skim the thread for answers. This question has been answered god knows how many times. I seriously want to get mods to make a sticky, flat out saying this:

GO TO A THRIFT STORE FOR A BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED SHIRT.

I've seen too many Matt shirt threads here...Please, look for other threads. They will have an answer.

I apologize for my rudeness, but it's not hard.

Have you tried searching for threads that address this question already? It appears twice just on the first page of Anime/Manga costume discussion, and I know it's appeared many times before that.

THANK YOU. There are tons, I mean tons of threads talking about Matt. I swear, hes the most talked about character in Death Note on these forums.

Please, don't abuse the poor search function. All it wants it wants is to help you, so be good to it.

Well if your question wasn't answered there, OR in the thread that was bumped last night (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=147307) chances are there aren't any new answers for you. As you can see, the ONLY solutions that remain the same, and these solutions are suggested in ALL the Matt shirt threads are - look at a thrift store.

Your answer HAS been given to you, numerous times. If you can't find one there and you are unable to purchase off the internet, then you're just SOL, I'm afraid to say.

Blah blah blah, all i hear is "I can't find it, someone find it for me, i don't wanna try!"

And if your just going to make empty threats about quitting. Do it.

We have bigger problems to worry about than someone who just can't find a shirt.

You just proved to me that you are a whiny little brat who can't even use a search function. Believe, even I asked this question and *gasp* I used the search function and *doublegasp* found my answer.

Stop whining.

And let me quote Smoted "And if your just going to make empty threats about quitting. Do it. We have bigger problems to worry about than someone who just can't find a shirt."

Dude, you and I make a good bashing team, lawl.

Like mentioned earlier, if you cannot find a Striped shirt for Matt at a thrift store...Look at more thrift stores! Try stores such as Macys, anything. Don't give up just because one store doesn't have the shirt. I eventually found my Matt shirt on ebay and I never gave up.

You on the other hand, don't take cosplay seriously, like the 90% of people at conventions who cosplay.

um ebay???

and there's got to be stores like ross or goody's around you

i've seen too many of these threads around and agreed that the search function should ALWAYS be used before just asking a question

*raises hand* Associate here.

We may soundly brutally (and I am brutally) honest, but thats life. We get so much of these threads, that you can blame us being off the edge.

Did you try 'Punk/ Goth/ Emo' stores? Hot Topic is a great start, and I even saw stripe stripes at Macy's and JC Penny. No luck on Ebay just now.

You should be a professor more often, Smoted. Alot of people can learn from you, and I will be there to help.

And I cant use a sewing machine! Im SOL aren't i?

If you can't sew at all, I think your problem extends FAR beyond finding a striped shirt.

Or are you being Matt without the DEFINITELY-REQUIRES-SEWING vest?

Yeah it's just life, some people will cater to your every whim, others are real people. Like us.

And if you can't do that costume move on. It wasn't meant to be.

Thanks, i guess it's fate that i chose to cosplay the Prof from Trinity Blood huh? I try. I welcome your companionship in this forum of uneducated people.

Koisnake
08-22-2008, 12:38 AM
Exactly.

Haha, I think it was fate. It was just meant to be. I don't have any 'associate' cosplay, as far as I am aware of.

Dude, if I ever come across some stripe stripes, I'd buy all of them and sell them off here, since cosplayers have a high demand for them. I wonder why it it so hard to find something so simple as stripes.

We should so have a sticky about common asked items, like striped shirts.

uhng, I'm in the same predicament, and I saw this thread, hoping for ideas, and I find bashing, this SUCKS. i have also tried, and tried to find one and want some advice.

The bashing is indeed a bit out of hand in this thread, but I think the people responsible for it know now not to go overboard like this.

MelloYello, Matt is indeed a very popular character to cosplay and there have been topics about him made many, many times. Did you really not find anything you needed in the other threads?

Smoted
08-24-2008, 05:49 PM
(for the record i'm trying to help now)

Okay, for 1, have you explained to your parents about cosplaying, what was your explanation? if you just said, hey i want to dress up in costumes and go to a convention give me money, then it probably didn't go over to well. try the parents and cosplay thread in the newbie forum.

for 2, spazzychibi, you didn't try. we aren't bashing we are being honest.

for 3. You guys should try searching the costumes and ask someone who did a matt cosplay.

MelloYello
08-24-2008, 08:41 PM
1)Yes i really did try everything
2) I told my parents what cosplay was.I showed them AND explained who matt was to them and even asked them if they didnt like that character if they wouid want to pick the cosplay
3) I'll KEEP TRYING!!

@koi & Smoted (Sorry I'm a softy)

@Mello: Awhile back I made a thred with diffrent resorces for Death Note characters.

http://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Girls-Striped-Shirt/dp/B001713KSK/ref=pd_sbs_a_2

That shirt should work for Matt. If you need any help on the rest of the costume, feel free to pm me, or for other items for Matt look here:

I got a semi-matt shirt at a Goodwill. Its collared and three-quarter length, but it'll work. Matt is a hard character to find peices for.
