Smile Varia Family Crest - Help me with your dying will plz!

I'm going to be doing a Belphegor cosplay (my first) in May. xD I've seen a few really good cosplays of him and they all have a very authentic looking Varia crest/badge, but I don't know how to go about making/buying one for my costume. ;-; Could anyone offer me a website that sells it, or a tutorial to make my own?

Much thanks in advance! <3

I am in the exact same boat as you. Bel cosplay in may :'D
there are a few places that sell the crests,
Cospa.com, hobbylink japan, and.. one other place i cant remember exactly. But they all appear to be sold out or on backorder [and who knows how long that would take :C ]

If anyone has any idea on how to make one, I'd be all over that as well :U

that might work, though in most cases, the crest in question is more of a fabric patch.

ohhh, hmm well i don't know what it looks like or the complexity, but i always like to use felt cut and sewed or glued, to make fabric crests.

my friend and I will probably end up making ours out of some combination of felt/fabric/fabric paint.

Varia Badges

Hello my senpais... *Flan cosplayer* I actually have a friend of mine who knows someone who embroiders custom stuff, and found another person on my own who does similar embroidery work for both human and BJD sized items that I've asked as well. You could try to find people on, etsy, or deviantart, who do that kind of thing cause a really nicely embroidered Varia crest would be the way to go. It's the place to spend just that little bit extra for that awesome detail.

I'm super excited to be finding more KHR cosplayers popping up all over the place. For Ahn! I know for sure we're planning on Friday as Byakuran, Shoichi (me) and Spanner, Saturday is Varia Day, and Sunday we'll have the entire 10th Vongola Famiglia! I'm so excited!

Besides myself as Flan, my friend is Bel. We will also have a Xanxus and a Squalo, and... possibly a Lussuria! Hopefully we can get these boys ready to go by Motaku http://motaku.org/ but if not, definitely by Ahn!Con http://ahn-con.com/ <-Midwest Yaoi Convention! What better location for a Hitman Reborn cosplay weekend? XD


What makes this even more amusing to my group is that we're probably going to wind up being on security staff for these conventions. <- oh god, i hope we don't kill someone... O___o
