Allllright so for next year Kawaiikon I want to cosplay as Turkey from APH! [http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk197/w7710280/open/gallery2-24.jpg]

I think I can do pretty much everything except the trench coat.
I've never sewn before. But I'm learning how from a friend.
Now sewing machine either.

So I would really like some tips on how I can make the coat? Fabric, type of stitching, all that jazz?

A step by step tutorial would be fantastic also~?

Thank you!

Turkey's just what I want to do as well, however I'll be buying the costume as I have no textile related talents what so ever. I wish there was a way to just buy the trench coat as thats all I really need for the costume as I've got pretty much everything else I need lying around at home.
Just so know here's where I'm buying from: http://www.everbuying.com/product35316.html

Don't know what to do about boots at all though, I'm a guy so calf high boots are a pain to find.

My suggestion would be altering a pattern similar to this: http://www.simplicity.com/p-2235-men-teen-costumes.aspx . You could move the front panel over and add two rows of buttons to get the desired effect. You'd have to alter the sleeves, too, to get the cuffs, but this may be a decent base.
