First off, I plan to cosplay as the the Kingdom Hearts version of Squall (http://gf3k.com/features_images/Yuffie_Squall%20character%20sheet.jpg) the next time I go to a -con but there are a few things I need to know. First off, what are the names of those suit jackets that button all the way up to the neck, similare to Japanese school boy uniforms? I plan to get one that is small, probably meant for a 11-12 year old, hem up the sleeves and the rest of the jacket to above the waist, and do some alterations to make it look like Squall's jackte. Second, where do I get the gunblade? I've searched everywhere; ebay, lycos, japanese search engines, but I can't find gunblade replicas anywhere.

Most people make their own gunblades...and if you don't have the talent, you can commission it from someone ^^ I know there's a place out there that makes too-small Cloud buster swords, but as for gunblades...you're on your own. ;p

Get a plank of wood, preferrably pine. Then you sketch out the shape of the gunblade in the wood. Then use a jig/sabre saw and cut it out. Sand, bevel, paint.

Ok, it's a little harder then that, but that's basically it. :)

I have a suggestion. Try and click Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Squall's+Gunblade&x=0&y=0),where you can get the gunblade.Good luck.
