Unlike D.Gray-man I have not seen them for sale yet. I use really buttons i found that shade an ornate cross pattern to them because the problem with casting you own in resin is that you can't get a high polish metal wish on them without paint. And paint rubs off pretty badly when you need functional button.

You can cast them with silver powder to get a silver tone but it never going to be shinny. if you have the patents to metal casting that would be the way to go.

So I have a super old Cosworx Scruffy in a really light blonde, bought several years ago for a Bianca (from Pokemon) cosplay that never panned out. I think if I straighten it out so it's less flippy it would work all right for a Shiemi cosplay. The color is a bit lighter than the Natural Blonde currently available--more like a platinum blonde.

My only question right now is what outfit should I do for Shiemi? I'm thinking about the school uniform, because it would probably be cheaper than buying fabric to make her kimono, but at the same time the kimono is probably more recognizable.
