So, I'm looking for references for Grell's vest. I know his pants are black, his coat is red with black trim but his vest....

Black, brown, brown/red, red

What do you, cosplay.com, think the best vest colour would be?

The concept art I have leans towards chocolate/dark brown with black lapels, although originally my waistcoat was charcoal grey with black lapels, which also worked.

The figure that I have sitting on my desk has kind of a dark grey with black lapels and buttons. I can try taking pictures of it tomorrow, if you want.

*edit* Pulled out the camera and had fun. Top right also shows a buckle usually hidden by the coat.

If you need references for his chainsaw, too, the figure got insanely detailed there, so I took some pictures of that, too. There's one angle I missed, so those won't be ready until later.

Hnnnng thank you both so much!

Now I just need to find enough skulls for the waist chain and his glasses.
Shouldn't be hard now that its halloween.... Right?

For the glasses: use skull beads. Go to the local craft store and ask for beads that are skull shaped. If none, then break out the clay.

For the waist chain: beads. Seriously. Big huge beads.

It's hard to find already done versions of the chains. We had to make our own for the group's Grell back in the day.
