I made this outfit for my roommate. My friends and I planning on doing a Renaissance-style Final Fantasy classes group (which is what my Black Mage costume is for). My roommate loves pirates and a pirate hat from the last RenFaire, so we decided to make him a canoneer (ala FFV).
The undershirt is made out of cotton sateen with a gross grain ribbon tie; the sash is a cotton jacquard with coin trim on the edges; and the belt is made out of vinyl with a vinyl holster for the flint-lock pistol and a cotton velveteen bag lined with red cotton.
The jacket (the main part of the costume) is made out of a table top poplin without lining (to make it a bit cooler) with gold dull satin cuffs. Metallic trim was added onto the front and the top of the collar. The epaulettes are made out of gold dull satin and peltex with a gold fringe sewn to the underside.
