A few questions for an Alois cosplay?~

So, hey guys~

I've got a con coming up in a few months and I was thinking that I would start improving my Alois cosplay ahead of time, since I had made the first one just a few weeks before the con and to me it feels just a bit rushed.

Anyway, I'm going to start off with the wig. I'm looking for a new one, it's not that I'm not happy with the one I have, just, I want to look at what other options I have.

For style, I was thinking something along the lines of this:

or this:

And I would prefer the color/shade to be more like the second picture.

My second question is his vest. I didn't have it finished on time because it came out too small, though I plan on making my own this year, and I am just a bit confused on how to add those black stripes to the vest? Do I just sew them on and call it good? Or is there some other way?
Reference: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ocTfrsBEgx...1600/alois.jpg ((One of the best I could find.))

I'm also thinking that I am going to be making his "maroon" colored coat, since it seems to be lesser done than his purple one. Any suggestions on what fabric I could use?

And finally, the boots. I was thinking of getting these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Womens-Punk-...em2ec 853a4eb

But sadly they don't have them in my size. x_x
Does anyone know of any similar to those?

Ahh, so many questions. I'm hoping it's not asking too much. ;w;
Thank you in advance, though!

I drew the pinstripes on my vest. I just made the vest using solid colored fabric and added the striped to the completed vest with a fine-tipped fabric marker and a straight edge.

Does that wash out easily? I want something permanent so I don't have to worry about going over it and doing it again if it does.

THANK YOU. 0u0
That actually really helps with the boots. I found some on a cosplay site for around 48$ that I wanted, so if I end up not being able to get them, this will be my second option. <3

No, it's never run or faded. I believe the marker said "permanent" on it but it's been too long for me to remember for sure.
