I need help finding the coat of Alucard from Hellsing. Does ANYONE know where I can find this coat in the southern california area? or anywhere..really? If any of you live in Hollywood could you give me some tips on where to look for all the stuff my friend needs for his outfit? :eeek:

Well, I live in Hollywood, but I'm custom tailoring the coat for my bf's Alucard outfit for AX. I think I'm going to be making everything except the boots and shirt. I don't know anywhere that would have a red frockcoat with sleeve capes pre-made... :(

I don't think you'll be able to, unless you want to commission someone to make it for you. If that's not an option, you could do what I did to make my my buddy Jared's Alucard coat (http://amethyst-angel.com/cosplay_alucard_text.html) . I took him to a thrift shop, had him try on overcoats until he found one that fit, and then I ripped the coat apart at the seams and use the pieces as a pattern for making his costume. I had to alter the pattern a little--tucking the seams in at the waist to create a more 19th century fitted look and adding the dusters to the shoulders. It wasn't hard, but it did take some time to do...
