Hey guys I have a question for anyone who has cosplayed Simon's final battle outfit, the one he wore fighting against the antispirals. I sort of need to save money at the time right now and the con I'm going to is next month. I would like to know, is there a way that I can make this awesome cosplay without buying it? Like what options are there to make it and this is mostly for his top part. Also are those two parts connected in the back or not? The only ting I would buy is the boots if anything. My gf's making the coat since were cosplaying Simon and Nia, but while she's doing that, I need to try and fight some way to make it and she can help me later. But yeah, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
Could find really good images but those you did this cosplay, you know whats up. Thanks again.
:)
Here's what I'm doing:

Are you asking about the black pieces that he wears? I'd suggest researching different typed of black vinyl for that. When I needed vinyl for time-skip Yoko's jacket, I used fabric.com. You can order sample swatches from them for $1 each (plus shipping).

Also, I don't think they're connected in the back, that would just be inconvenient. D=
