Red face Kuroshitsuji Undertaker patterns

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/d...keranime01.jpg
I can't afford to buy the costume for undertaker as I am currently just occasionally babysitting and at most get £10 (roughly 16.07$) every week or so. I have a wig, although its about two inchs shorter than I'd like it is more than passable and a top hat I'm going to use as a base for the hat. Fake nails are easy to find and (although I know its not nessicary for undertaker I will also be cosplaying as William spears later in the year) I know where I can get cheap, year long contacts.

Its the coat(s) I'm struggling with, I cant find a good pattern anywhere and I desperately need one because I know from past experience I am -not- good at making my own. Although the top layer is most important for me as I can give the impression of the high collar coat below I'd really like to do both since I imagine the longer sleeves will trap a lot of heat and I'd like to be able to take it off if I get too warm.

I also would appreciate any links to make-up tutorials for the scars...

I would suggest this pattern for at least the undercoat: http://butterick.mccall.com/b5425-pr...hp?page_id=872 It is the one i used, and it worked just fine. Needed some changes, but nothing drastic.

When it comes to his overcoat, it gets harder. I looked online and in fabric shops, and I could not find any good pattern. If I was unlucky, or if this is just a bloody hard pattern to find I do not know, but... I used the same pattern: http://butterick.mccall.com/b5425-pr...hp?page_id=872

This means that you will either have to re-draw the collar, or (if you use the white one) make sure that the buttons are more to the side. Here is a good picture of Undertaker that shows how his costume looks: http://s5.tinypic.com/ezlae.jpg

Be warned, though: if you are low on money, it's not an easy costume to make. When I made it, materials for two coats alone cost me over £80.

Good luck, whatever you choose to do

Thumbs up Thank you!

these patterns look great! I already have a wig and top hat so it is just the coats that I need to work on as I can make any accessories fairly easily. I wouldn't worry about money too much, somehow I have away of coming by fabric that is really cheap but high quality just when I need it.

For my costume of Undertaker, I used Butteric Pattern 6844 for the under coat (which that pattern is for specificly) and his over coat, I used the same pattern by altered.

The pattern is pretty easy, and sits tightly on your as it should be, and you get the high collar.
Using it to do the over coat, the actual pattern is more then long enough for it, and you just need to re-draw a collar and add about 4 inches down and 4 extended to the sleeve following the original pattern to get the length and hanging look. Collar is use a collar pattern as the starting point, and draw something like a half circle.

He's hard, but worth it. But that's the method I did for my costume of him, and its had positive responces.

Material costs are high for this. He is by far most expensive costume, but I saved a bit of money by using normal cotton material on the under coat (which also means its cooler) and a thicker material for the realistic look on the outside. Overall, this costume cost me about £80-90 with materials. So, he's expensive and time consuming, but worth it in the long run. C:

I used this pattern for the coat and drafter my own pattern for the dick with sleeves from it since I wasn't keen on wearing two coat during the summer. lol

I did make modification to the patter by removing the secondary panel and going from 8 to 4 body panels.
