Lavi Cosplay

Hey I'm a noobie to cosplaying and I want to do a lavi cosplay from D. Grayman. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should get started? Designs, material, who to talk to, anything would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm planning on doing Lavi's 1st uniform. How would i get a huge zipper for the front of his coat? Which arda wig do you think would be the best? I was thinking the pumpkin color would be good for his hair too (thread hijack lol)

For that large zipper (you might not find one THAT big) but check out the zippers that are listed as Sport zippers in the fabric stores. They are separating ones and usually have larger teeth on them than basic zippers.

If you're really trying to get the zipper size to match you could look at orgXIII.org they have gaint zippers that you normally couldn't find at a fabric store. I bought the #30 and used it for my 2nd uniform.

As for the wig I would suggest getting the Magnum or Magnum long just to be safe. It's a wonderful wig for spiking and I love mine to death XD
