I'm looking to put together a Ciel Phantomhive cosplay; this one to be precise.
I've never bought a cosplay directly from a site (seeing as I'm unsure as how accurate my measurements are, and have trouble finding a reliable website with the cosplay I want), and I've always put them together myself. I'm on a budget/in a tight spot, and am saving up for this cosplay - but, I want to know if there's alternate ways I can come about with putting it together, seeing as it's more complex than the other ones I've done, which were relatively simple.
I have the option to go to a local tailor, who helped with the shirt of my last cosplay, or actually trying to buy pieces that look similar rather than just buying fabric. Also where I live, it's very hot, so finding things like long-sleeved pieces/coats, are difficult to locate unless you go to specific stores. As for fabric, I'm unsure on what to use for it, since I want it to be sturdy, but not too hot when it comes to wearing it. (Due to the climate of my state)
Is there a pattern for this cosplay (or pieces of it) that I can use to help me out/give to my tailor/etc? If so, linking will be appreciated.
Also, there's no deadline for this (the next con I'm going to is all the way in December) so I'm not looking to put it together in a rush, just planning ahead to see how I can come about with getting it before the next con.
If anyone can help/give/advice/etc, it'd be greatly appreciated!
