I can get the inner sweater done without problems.
My question is to all those fabric masters out there. I was wondering what I should use for material for the chaps and outer jacket. I'd like something a bit stretchy, like stretch twill.
Any help is welcome and thanks for reading.

Actually, I'm going through similar(update (http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=60026))work now that the full-body reference picture has been released. All the reference pictures I had prior were the classic "over the shoulder running shot", sitting on the clock tower, his fight with Axel, and the encounter with that huge white behemoth. :rolleyes:

Anyway, to answer your question... I opted for grey polyester/cotton twill mixed fabric; since it was pretty durable, inexpensive and easy to sew on. The result didn't look too bad either, though since the navy blue shirt I wore underneath(this is before it was later revealled as a zip-up vest)was too long, the jacket was designed differently than interpreted and it was *hell* trying to make a checkered wristband(of which I opted to just wear a black one). So that's what I'm set to redo next time around...

I was thinking of a strech twill too... I'm hoping that I might be able to wear the jacket outside a con if it comes out good enough.
Thanks!
