View Full Version : Matt From Death Note Cosplay

04-16-2011, 10:59 PM
I really want to cosplay Matt for our con this year but I don't think I'd do well trying to make/find his vest completely on my own. =/ Does anyone have any suggestions? Like a good site I could buy it from or maybe some kind of tutorial that's out there on how to make it? Any help would be extremely appreciated.

Well it really depends on how much you're willing to spend, there are ones available for about 70-150usd from all sorts of cosplay sites (i.e. http://www.cosplayhouse.com/Death-Note-Matt-Cosplay-Costume.html?gdftrk=gdfV22132_a_7c516_a_7c1626_a_7 cACD1002 ) If you look, you can find tan ski vests, something like http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150509566707#vi-content and just sew on some fur (I didn't look very hard so you could probably find something better). I'm not super familiar with Death Note characters because I cheated and just watched the live action movies, but it looks like it has some volume to it, so to sew it would require some stuffing and patience and skill, but you should be able to find a pattern on google if you search hard enough.

Thanks for your help, I think I'm going to actually just get a vest and sew. XD Especially so since I've only been hearing bad things about Cosplay House.

I was just using them as an example, there are plenty of different cosplay sites that sell them if you just search for 'matt death note' on google shopping =P but i hope it turns out well for you!

Actually, if this thread isn't dead, dying and decaying I have some input you might like.

If you'd be willing to buy a jacket instead of making one then i have a link someone in another thread already posted but i'll just re-post it here, alright, so there's this sight called www.cosplayhouse.com and they make a really wonderful and high quality vest for Matt.

It's $88.00, but once you see the quality it's really actually a bargain. I've purchased my vest from there before, and I love it, it's soft, non-sweaty and sticky, and really comfortable.

this is the link ---> http://www.cosplayhouse.com/Death-No...y-Costume.html all you have to do is type death note into the search and it'll pop up

Well I hope this helps d(^w^)b and good luck with your cosplay!!
