The Eighth Doctor (Please Help)

Hey there, everyone.
I'm trying to put together an Eighth Doctor costume for this year's Dragon*Con, and things aren't going so easy as I planned. I'm having the MOST difficult time getting the velvet victorian frock coat and the silver double-breasted vest, as they quite hard to find anywhere on the net. I have frequently checked the Eighth Cosplay Archive on livejournal, and it had helped me greatly on finding many of the items necessary for the costume, it is just those two are throwing me for a loop.

I had recently asked a friend to make the coat and the vest, but she frequently suffers from depression and she states doesn't have a lot of cash for the fabric. I hate to stall her, make her feel worthless and not up to par, but I might have to look for someone else to do it for me.

If there are any other Eighth Doctor cosplayers, complete with vest and coat, and those who have an extent of knowledge of cosplaying in the Doctor Who fandom, or can point to a good commissioner, please, I am desperately in dire need of your help.

My husband cosplay's the Eighth Doctor, and I found his coat on ebay. Its not 100% accurate, but it works very well. His vest is the re-printed accurate fabric, and was made by a friend as a gift.

My suggestion is going on ebay and looking up velvet frock coats, and simular vests. Keep in mind, in the comics & audios, the Eighth Doctor's color schemes changed a bit so you can play with that.

Thanks! I'll be looking around on Ebay and other sites to get an idea.

Perhaps I just need to believe in my friend and be patient as she tries to get everything together for the vest? I hope everything turns out okay in the end.

How did your 8th Doctor work out? We're currently working on my 18 yo's. Have everything we need but fabric for the pants.
