Alright so, I'm in the middle of making an Allen Walker & Lavi 3rd Uniform cosplay.

While looking at reference photo's I noticed they have some pretty fancy buttons.
Button 1 (Need 24 red ones, also need 4 gray ones):

Button 2 (Button with the "E" on it, only need two):

I looked all over for a nice price for them, but 2 buttons for 10$ doesn't work for me.
I also searched all over for a place that sells a button with an "E" on it, found nothing.

Anyone know a way to make nice buttons, or someone to commission these for me?
Or possibly even have a tutorial on how to make them?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks! 8D

I would make a copy cast in a rubber/silicon mold of the original metal buttons or make a button out of clay cast it in plaster, let it dry then make FIMO/Sculpey clay button by pressing them into the shape.

For the E pin(it's a pin/brooch and not a button like the pre fabricated costumes use) I made it from scratch using a cheap freebie round pin as the base and used air dry clay (paperclay) to build it up on top. Sanded it smooth then added loops at the bottom to hang the beads off of.
