I need help deciding which costume to buy. I haven't seen to many for Undertaker. I found one at Cosplay magic I like it but I'm not 100%. The oy thing I fear it that the sleeves aren't long enough. How do people feel about Cosplay magic? Has anyone seen anything better for Undertaker? I also need to find everything else....Boots are gunna be hard....Any advise on where to get them? i don't mind making them with belts but I need the actual boots. Lastly a wig. I've found some the right length an color but I'd have to style them and I don't want to kill them so its out of the question. XD Any help will be greatly appreciated. ^^ And I hope I'm posting this is the right place....XD
Here is the costume.

Cosplaymagic.com is good for some costumes, others are not so good. This is an instance where Cosplaymagic did not create a good costume.
I also couldn't find a good Undertaker costume anywhere so I made mine. I searched this thread and found a lot of good tips: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=158972
Sadly, Undertaker doesn't seem to be as popular as Sebastian, Grell, and Ciel's various outfits, so if you want a good costume you'll need to wait until Undertaker becomes more popular or you'll have to bite the bullet and make it.
For boots, I know some people find buckles and just hand-sew them to boots. I just went to Forever 21 and bought these (http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=footwr_casual&footwr_style=&footwr_size=&footwr_color=&footwr_price=&product_id=2071556181&Page=1). I know they aren't exactly the same as Undertaker's but they were close enough imo.
wig i bought and then made minor changes to: Cosworx Ivy in silver/gray. All I did was snip the bangs a little bit and used a mix of gel, heat, and prayer to get the bangs to look right.

I've seen boots like UT's at hot Topic, Demonia has some similar ones, but I think it may be easier just getting knee-high boots and attatching buckles to them. don't have to sew them on, if they're not that heavy, you could get a good thing of double-sided tape to attatch em.
I can't really hel you with the hat, because it's not a very common shape, but wat you CAN do is get a regular one with a full rim, cut some cardboard and put something like a stocking or leggings over it. (I found my hat at an antique shop; wrong color, but right shape, so yeah)
for the wig, what you NEED to keep in mind is that his hair, like Sephiroth's is SILVER. drives me absolutely NUTS when people get gray (much too dark) or white (much too light) for Undertaker cosplays. so what you can do is check around for long SILVER wigs (I think it was mentioned about 100 cm). if you can't find one, look for a Sephiroth wig, and just cut it to the needed length.
anyway, there's a sketch guide that will really help you:http://www.cosplayforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=22024 (just keep scrolling down). the jacket isn't really something to worry about, you can just find a long button-down dress, and make a separate collar. the overcoat is just loose-fitting, with REALLY long sleeves...probably can be made with a black bedsheet(?). don't forget the belt, which is just a gold chain with 4 memorial pendants, and don't foget the nails XD.
just keep in mind this guy is like 6'2, so just keep your own measurements in mind when you're doing this ;p
I hope this helps
