I'm looking for images of the BACK of Allen Walker's 3rd uniform from D.Gray-man. The front is:

But I can't find images of the back. Preferably official art (screen shots, manga scans, artbook images) and not art or other cosplays please. Thank you in advance.

I rummaged through my ton of D.Gray-man pictures to see if I could find something to help you out, but couldn't. What I can offer you is this. I'm doing Lavi's 3rd uniform and have already done Lenalee's for a friend. And what I'm doing for Lavi's is the same I did for the back of hers. Just the red lines down the seams to accentuate the style. I thought I had pictures of the back of hers...but I don't. But I used the same thin cording and just followed the curves of the back seams of the jacket. I have pictures of her finished costume in my galleries, but as I said, sadly no picture of what I did to the back.

It's mainly the back of the like...pouch...thing that I need to see about. I've seen that the ones you can buy have a pouch in the back...that's what I was looking for pictures of to make sure that it was really there and the same as the ones I've seen at stores.

We made one for my friend's Lenalee. And if I remember correctly...though don't quote me on it...I've seen him wearing one in the manga. But lord knows where exactly a clear picture would be in the chapters since they got the new uniforms.

Do you happen to know what chapters those are? Anything would do if I can get some sort of reference at all. I just haven't read the manga so I wouldn't know where to start.

I just checked on onemanga.com where I read D.Gray-man and it would seem they started wearing the new uniforms around chapter 165. You might be able to find something starting around there.

Heres a very vauge picture of the the top of the pouch. I was trying to remember off the top of my head which chapters had back pictures, but they are very few and far between. I have some scans saved at home because I'm starting on this costume in about a month but I could still only find one or two pics of the back shot and both are from a distance so you can't really see the detail. >_<

And this one you can kind see the pouch poking out from under the crowned clown cloak:

Heres a decent one of Kanda's pouch, hopefully they're the same. ^_^

I'm with livingdeadgirl that their pouches should be the same. I mean, they are uniforms, so they should be at least somewhat standard, even though they each have something different about them to fit the character.

I was going through some of my references I had saved for when I did my friend's Lenalee, and lo and behold, in the corner, a sketch of the pouch! It's down by Lenalee, but hey, any little bit helps right?

Thanks you guys. All I have left to finish is the pouch and the patch now!! I debuted the unfinished version at a dance last week and won the costume contest with it, so I think I'm on a good track. Thanks so much for all the pictures!!!
