Hi everyone ....I didnt see this thread earlier so I made one, gomen ne...anyway I am making the Exorist uniform.

At first I wasn't sure what fabric but i wanted a firm fabric so I ended up using a black denim type fabric.i was lucky to find a similar pattern by McCall . I decided to make one that has the front side and back side parts.It shapes better and easier to modify. Its a pain putting the collars and the sleeves. Its not perfect but the basic jacket is done, just the buttons and the wrist part.
I really hate working with black material, Its hard to see the thread .

What I couldn't figure out is the belt .If It is leather or the same material as the coat because it blends with in with the outfit.I have enough material to make the belt.

What do you guys think?

I am not going to make the criss cross leather belt, coz I dont have time to make it, maybe later.

Anyway , I did saw a similar tie a while back at Ross. I wont paint it, i would use print transfer.

I only have screenshots of the school logo but they are not very clear either, i haven't seen a clear pic in the manga either.

Twill (the denim fabric iaShakezula mentioned) is a great fabric to work with for uniforms if your stuck for suiting fabric.

I'm looking myself but will be making up a vector of the insignia.

If you enlarge the listing photo's you can see it better.

This isn't perfect, but this necktie is fairly close...?

I'm thinking maybe it'll work for anyone keeping their jackets buttoned up, like Yukio

hey Mialorder that tie is perfect , hope it makes it on time.I bought one but for the meantime I will make one just in case for Anime Expo which is on July forth weekened.

Yeah the twill denim fabric worked well for the jacket but it sure is heavy and I do have a suiting fabric but I was saving it for the school unifom. Thats the next project after this.
I am going to do this with my beginner sewing friend who wants to be Rin.So I can guide her. So hopefully by then we will have a clear design of the school patch so I can embroider one.

Since the tie is silk you can dye to bottom have black instead of painting is with thicker paint (you just have to brush the dye on.)

I also found this tie while looking for black & white striped ones.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
(because you know that REN is a fine colour. )

It ships in 15-20 days so this is one you won't get ahold of in time. >__<


I'm hoping to finish a casual Rin (sand blazer) for the cosplay picnic in 3 weeks time.



This is the largest image of the cover art for volume 1 I've found.
http://th01.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/...lf-d2zsrl6.jpg


Also the same insignia found on the ties is also on the Saya.
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...5/Koumaken.jpg


As for Rin's wig I wanted a Magnum from Arda wigs but the colour I wanted is out of stock in Dark Blue so I ordered this one. The bangs need to be cut but the layering in the back if already good.
http://www.epiccosplay.com/12-midnig...wig-clone.html
Plan to dye it with black fabric dye to tint is darker subtle black blue.



On a random note: I love how the tie stripes randomly change directions in the anime and art for the anime. lol

Ahh, nice find on the necktie! Looks great, now I'm tempted to buy that one as well >_<

I'm toying with the idea of cosplaying this unnamed character:
http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lm...w5obo1_400.png

I'm caught up with both anime and manga and they haven't touched on this dude and I wonder if they ever will : p But man... that hand puppet is so cute!! I just want an excuse to make one and wear it on my hand all con, haha!

Thinking about this vest for the cosplay:

That's a pretty good find and you can either sew in the pink stripe or Paint/Dye it on with Masking Tape/Resist being 100% cotton.


You could make the puppet say strange things all day. lol

Thanks for the help, Ani_BEE & Capt_Lucifer! Mephisto is a bit of a project, so I'm moving the cosplay back for another con. I hope to see your Mephisto at Otakon, Capt_Lucifer!

So my sister and I received our wigs in the mail, as well as the ears, what do you think of them?

^^; Please ignore the random thread on Rin's wig, and the fact that Yukio's moles are in the wrong place. We're just figuring things out at this point. @-@

I was thinking of doing Yukio or Bon for Kumoricon, but I think I've pretty much settled on Bon. I like Yukio's outfit, but I'm more fond of Bon as a character.

I'd have to get some extra ear piercings to be reallly accurate, but his earrings keep changing from picture to picture, so I'm just going to go with what I can find (probably at claire's XD).

I'm hoping to get my hands on the Color Archive book to have something specific as a guideline. But we'll see if I'll be able to find it anywhere...

I think I've settled on doing Yukio's Exorcist uniform for Youmacon this year. I'm trying to convince one of my friends to start on Rin, since we were originally going to do them this summer; but things came up to where we couldn't do them. Any ideas on how to go about Yukio's gun/bullet holster?

I'm going to do the anime version because I don't want to have to lug around that giant thing. Though I am going to go ahead and make his back holsters (that are attached to his belt) out of real leather. >_<

Most of his piercing are cuffs in the cartilage area so don't go crazy with them unless you want permanent holes for at least 2 years and a lot of initial pain.

For his hair if you have the right length and shade of brown you can use this product after styling the stripe to paint on the yellow. I works best with stiff styled hair.

Color Archive I've seen it on ebay

The do have the character sketches for the show.




The bullet holster looks like a barbers apron with a ton of loops sewn on.


Go a question for everyone doing Rin ~ how would you tie the flat gold/yellow cord on his saya (sheath)?
