I am making a Gambit cosplay for my boyfriend and I really have no clue or idea as to ANYTHING of what to do. I don't even know where to begin. If anyone could give me ideas, that would be AWESOMEE thank you so much.

Which version of Gambit's costume are you trying to make? Posting/Linking to a pic would be helpful so myself or others can offer suggestions for how to help. ^_^

I started working on a Gambit costume for myself (posted my first progress pic). Since I can't make props/sew, I'm just gathering pieces from across the internet. It's already getting expensive this way (over $160) though. I'd say start with a trench coat, because that can hide a lot of small things. Honestly, if you have that, the headpiece, a staff and some cards, you're already there.

yeah, I think we finally decided on either doing the x-treme x-men version or the age of apocalypse- apocalypse has the scarf and blue chest piece and a shorter jacket, but there are soooo few pictures unless you go to the comic store [which is what we're doing today]
I think I came up with the idea of taking lycra for the chest piece and MAKING abs covered in lycra to strap to a shirt, if that makes sense.
