Sekirei Jacket?

So I'll start off by apologizing if I've posted this in the wrong section.

I plan on doing Homura/Kagari for Otakon 2012 and I need his jacket. While I "can" purchase one of the mass produced ones, I'd rather make my own. I have NEVER made anything more than pillows (and that was a few years ago) regarding fabric.

Reference Pic: [IMG {500}x{500}]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/homura-kagari_9733.jpg[/IMG]

Also, I have someone doing Tsukiumi and need advice on her jacket:

And last but not least, I need to make the Disciplinary Squad Jacket/Cape.

Reference Pic:

For the first two, I've considered Leather, but as it'll be Summer and MD likes to have weather issues and not stay a stable temp (Usually gets hot as hell here) I'd like someone who's been making their own costumes to give some input. Also, I'm sure Leather will probably be a bit more expensive than other materials.

For the jacket/cape, I really haven't started planning that, but I would assume some type of wool/cotton mix.

I need materials that will be durable because these are meant to be "more than once" cosplays for a couple conventions so...Any input would be great!
Thanks,
-Crow

EDIT: Sorry for the third pic being so big...Can't figure out the BBCode resize command...

It looks like a long sleeved Haori which would not be made out of leather. A stiff material (which like canvis (sp?) wouldn't carry so much heat). How they wear it and the sleeve on the raised arm second chic from the left looks.

Yes! I can make that work for the longer jackets. What about Homura's and Tsukiumi's?

Only the one with the grey jackets show hms. The second image doesn't show so I really don't know what I am looking for as for the guys jacket first picture I would go with a standard trench jacket with a stand up collar. Of course fold as needed. Sorry only have a dollfie jacket pattern for that. If you want it though I can link ya.

I would combine this with a trench pattern. The collar is high so I would only avoid doing the top part of the collar

http://i49.tinypic.com/x43kll.jpg Note the orange box only use that part of the collar.

http://twilightarms.com/dolls/patter...ead_duster.htm If you want to try.

Good luck

Chimura the patterns I linked above. You might want to make a test of the outfit before building. I find klennexes are great for test patterns, that and rest room paper. >><< Just get some clear tape and there you go.

Dolfie-BJD-Ball Jointed Doll ::thumbs to icon:: L there.

For the busty girl there, this jacket pattern is a good starting point, even the sleeves are right.
