I have a friend who's going to be cosplaying as Arucard as well. What he's did was go a thrift store and found a long white coat. We dyed it red and i made the details on the coat (they're not that hard, trust me). Hope that helps!

I'm afraid I'm going to the other extreme and tailoring the coat out of red wool. I'm planning to make it proportioned with the extra wide shoulders and I have some vintage 1980's =huge= shoulder pads that will be perfect for it. Unfortunatly, there's only so big a shoulder pad you can put into an already made coat without it cutting into your armpit, so it's best not to mess with it.

I've seen other people mentioning finding a pimp hat at a costume shop and covering it with red fabric, but I'm going to look into making one out of hat felt and possibly some buckram for stiffness. I'm not sure if it'll work, since I've never made a hat, but that's how to learn, and I like challenges! :)

EBAY!! You can find everthing there
and if you not a member i sugest thrift stores
outlit stores, holloween costume websites,
places that sell old things or mabye buying your own
cloth and materials and tell a tailor to make it for you
but that mite be expensive. Amen.....hehe

try the thrift store before talior. They have the randomest stuff there and really cheap. I got alexander anderson's cloak at a thrift store for 6$ on sale. I just need to add the purple outline and take out the buttens

I'm handling my buddy Nick's Alucard costume, and let me tell you right now, you aren't going to find the hat or the coat.

Bright red--even dark red, really--was never really the height of fashion.
If you have a small frame, you might get lucky. Maybe.

But it's unlikely.

I'm sewing Nick's coat out of velveteen (does cool things with the light), and we're painting a vinyl "pimp" hat from a costume shop.

Good luck!
