I'm so proud of this costume and the work I put into it to make it as accurate as physically possible, even though finding the buckles and hardware for the vest put me through hell. The vest is blue nylon, hand-made, designed from scratch. The jacket is cotton trigger and twill, fully lined with gores put into the side seams to make it do that flaring thing Yami's does. I get a lot of queries about the collar - those "hooks" are actually square jump rings from a scrapbooking supply store. I made everything but the boots (my lovely Doc Martens) - yes, the pants, the dueling glove, the WIG, and the Millennium Puzzle too!
