pics please?
some of us sadly are not homestucks D;

one warning with anything with the label 'steampunk' it usually about 20% more expensive than normal stuff and is usually just normal stuff thats been renamed or modded.

Horuss' coat is sort of based on 18th century Naval uniforms:

Which points us in the direction to find patterns to use in making a Horus costume.

That said, if you aren't a particularly strong seamstress I would recommend finding a modern coat in a similar style

and modifying it. But I would avoid anything labeled "steampunk" for the reasons mentioned above. Steampunk is very popular as of late and many merchants are taking advantage of that fact to sell low quality stuff at inflated prices.

If you do choose to go the sewing it from scratch route I would recommend a nice heavy cotton canvas for the coat, as it will give you the shape and wight you will need at a reasonable pricepoint.
