First of all, I am going for the anime version of Matt. I don't care how 'good' the fan version is, since the judges won't be too happy about me entering a 'fan' coloring for an anime character.

On to the questions.

1) I know there was a thread asking to the whereabouts of a white and black striped shirt for Matt, but I am looking for the Red and black striped shirt. Any sites where I can buy them or stores that I will sure find them?

2) His wig. I got a PERFECT wig for him, but I want to dye to that strange brown -green hair he has. The wig I have is sorta like Light's hair color, but more brown. Is it possible to dye from brown to my desired color?

Thanks for reading!

1) A quick Google search brought up this: http://www.findcoolclothes.com/01612.html

EDIT: The site says out of stock, sorry. Otherwise, I'm not sure. You might be able to find another place that sells them if you search the internet some more.

You could also get a black-and-white striped shirt and dye it red. Make sure it's 100% cotton (or other natural fiber) though.

2) You should be able to quite well. Check the Sharpie dyeing thread in the wig forum for advice - I recall someone who dyed a brown wig with green sharpies and got the perfect green-tinted brown look you want.

I don't mean to take over a thread but Koisnake, where did you find the wig? I'm also considering cosplaying as Matt and I can't really find a wig.

@Albinoplant: D'oh! I will just have to waste gas and drive there xD

@UndeadTiger: I actually bought it from the user, Lawliet. She bought it from the ebayer 'cosplaywig' I believe. I am going for the anime original version, not the fan made red version.

I got my shirt off of Amazon.com after a week or so of browsing the internets for one.

Though, Hot Topic has a shirt which is close to his, but it has a hood and buttons down the front. I nearly got it because my vest was large enough to hide the hood and buttons, but I found the Amazon.com one and went with that...

My wig is the "Wisp" one from cosworx, cut up a bit.

After many hours of searching, I was able to find one, and a perfect one too. Ebay is your friend...And I got his jacket base, and goggles. So I'm in my way, w00t.
