So, the only matador costume pattern I can find... is kind of poopy :I

Anyone know any good patterns that I can use to make the jacket and pants? And undershirt thingy... @ . @

Reference: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/files/costumes/1910/13315/kodosupe.jpg

This is going to be a huge project for me, I know. Especially since the only thing I've sewn from scratch was Italy's sailor uniform (lol). Which was easy.

SO WHOO HARD COSPLAY.

Any ideas on patterns? @ . @

I am not sure if this is the pattern you were talking about, but this is the only I could find. It's OOP, which is why it costs 30 bucks :/

Perhaps that first green one on the top could work as a base if you wanted to lengthen the sleeves a bit.

This one also seemed to pop up a lot as well too for the pants:

Wouldn't tights work for the pants? At least thats what my friend did and added the tassles :T

That pattern doesn't work, since its kind of a different style of Matador.

And... I guess tights would work, sorta... I mean, they're tight. But they're not thick enough, as well as I'd probably have to stalk various Wet Seals to find the right color. Or dye a pair. When its probably much easier to just make the pants myself :I
