View Full Version : Russia's Traditional-Casual Outfit

10-30-2010, 11:46 AM
I'm going to do this outfit for Russia, but I'm still working certain things out:


It's never been officially coloured - however, the few times I've seen it cosplayed the jacket has been red, but in most fanart I've seen it's pink. I'm going to do it in pink since imo it looks much cuter that way.

However, I'm having trouble with the rest of it...

There's some sort of detailing around the edges of the jacket - what cour do you think that should be?

I'm going to use mostly the same cours as in this fanart:


Do you think that would look okay?

Also, what sort of materials do you think I should use for it all? I plan to make it all from scratch...

This will also be my first time ever using a pattern. Is there a pattern anyone can point me to that could work for the jacket?

And last of all, what about the boots?

I realise this is rather a tall order, but if you can help me put with any of it, I'll really appreciate it!

I think the detail should be gold ribbon-so pretty. Also, the boots shouldn't be too hard to find at a charity shop with a little digging.

I was actually thinking gold too, so it's good to know that's supported ^^

Actually I think now to reduce costs I'll just use the boots I've been using for Spain, though they're a lot more feminine lol... I have weird shaped feet and it's reallly, really hard to find shoes that fit me, so it'll probably be worth using the more feminine boots than spending days trying to find boots in a charity shop that actually don't hurt XD;

Thanks! <3

I'd say don't go overboard with the pink. The jacket would be cute but he shouldn't look like a flaming homosexual. Attached my coloring of pic.

Russia's shirt looks like these: http://www.rusclothing.com/traditional-russian/shirts/

They are usually made of linen, cotton, or to be extra fancy, silk. The pattern on the shirt are either embroidered ribbon, or embroidered on the shirt itself.

I couldn't find anything about the jacket, but it does look like "bolero-style".
