Hey hey ^^
well i got my coat sorted, and thats about it.... as wel as contact lens and the eye makeup.
problems i'm having is the boots which i have no refernce of i was thinking they were sort of like these:

http://cosworx.com/product.php?productid=25493&cat=2437&page=1

but they have white on them i think, i don't have any reference pics for boots,

The next part is that cursed/scared hand of his... How would i do this, many have suggested a glove just painted, my brother suggests using body paints and hand painting it on (which he could do).

The wig i wasn't sure which one to buy off cosworx, i was going to go for the wisp style:

http://cosworx.com/product.php?productid=26257&cat=2471&page=1

not sure which colour though as is his hair white or grey/silver? The style is pretty similar. i got to do a bit of cutting and shaping with the fringe but it's as close as i think a wig will go :)

if anyone has any reference pictures it would help and any sugestions as well.
Thank You
Kind Regards,
Matt Catt

Let's see, the boots: It's the right style for the boots but the boots have a zipper on the front (a giant one at that) and white lining around it. Also it folds over on the top...kind of like the pirate boots...

The hand: a lot of people just do a plastic glove...and yeah go from there...I wouldn't advise you to paint your hand...it if smudges it can ruin your costume or you would have to be retouching it all day.

The wig: I personally thing his hair is white, since in the manga they aren't any unusual hair colors and silver would be very unusual. In the manga they make fun of him having old man's hair so I would assume that it would be white. It also depends on the coat as well, I've seen some cosplays that have the coat all silver (not white) and so the silver wig they use is perfect. But I would say white would do better, and the wisp is perfect, you just have to trim it at the front.

Hope this helps...

Take a look around the D.Gray-man topic (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=79133) already in the forums, they've discussed all of this there.

(I'm cosplaying as Allen too!) Definitely wisp style! I just ordered my White wisp wig on Monday, it came Thursday! <3 Cosworx is where you get the wigs! xD Wisp works really well for Allen's hair, you don't even really have to style it. o_o

As for the boots... I don't know. xD I'm still looking for those too...

Hmm, about the hand... I'd go with getting a maroon glove and super gluing a black cross to the glove. o_o But I think I'm actually going to do the invoked form, so that's gonna be a lot of wire and paper mache... xD

Good luck with everything! ^__^

for the boots i just bought a pair and duct taped fabric over the top for the "pirate effect" and used white duct tape for the white stripe over my boot's laces. it worked pretty well.:toothy:

the best ones i found were these

http://02a5349.netsolstores.com/bullseye.aspx

or

http://www.fxeyes.com/fxstore/shop/item.aspx?itemid=141


even thought they only have 2 circles they are probably as close as you'll get

however the full eye contacts are soooo hard to put in, i wouldnt recomend them unless youve worn contacts a fair bit befor, plus they are damn expensive!!

the cheaper easier options would be to get red contacts with small black bands, i couldnt find any but i know they are out there

I cosplay as Lavi from D. Gray-man and I recently went to AAC this past month. I saw a really good Allen there, but they did the Crown Clown so they didn't do the funky color hand thing. I have to say their Crown Clown was great and all hand made.
I hate styling the wig for Lavia nd now I ahve to get a new one since mine kind of got ruined at the con thanks to rain and for some reason soda....-sighs- anyways if you need advice on making weapons I can help. We made Lavi's hammer and everyone that has seen it so far says it's the most badass hammer around.

What pattern did you use for the 3rd uniform jacket for Lavi? And how did you do his pants? Just sewed two pairs together?

... Does anybody else find it odd that we're still discussing this here and not in the official D.Gray-man thread which just happens to be on the first page this evening? I know I do.
