I actually cosplayed that version of Mello (manga, since the anime had barely started by that point) last year at Jacon. I went with a black/red color scheme, since that one image was slightly off in color (Near appearing blue!?).
In the manga it was chapter 77 where he first wears that coat. I have no idea what it looks like in the anime, but any color images of Deathnote tend to be copied over into the manga (the only major difference I ever saw was Matt's arms being red/black in the anime, and white/black in the manga).
