Hobo Phoenix (In progress)

Haven't done cosplay before and going to my first con in July, so I went for something that I felt I could pull off without breaking the bank.

Looking to switch buy a zip up hoodie to replace the one I have, not sure if I'm going to pursue stripes though, since that may be a bit harder to find or cost more to have custom done

Figured it was simple enough to do for my first, but may as well get some opinions while I'm here.

Nice!! I think there is only 2 flaws. Both on the coat. You need a zip up hoodie. Which is real easy to get lol Then you need the blue stripes his sleeves seem to have. You can do that by either sewing blue fabric to it (which might be tougher then it sounds lol) or get blue fabric paint and paint them on.

Pretty accurate, I'd say except for what Jason said about the zip-up. If not fabric paint, just get a dark blue sharpie or permanent marker and use them for the stripes. It should show on a medium grey zip-up like that. Check out thrift stores for the zip up if you're worried about spending more than $20 or so.

Oh, and I noticed he's wearing a gold pendant of some sort in one picture. Lots of stores would sell something similar to that. Ardene, Claires, random dollar stores, and again, thrift stores.

Huh..Didn't even notice the necklace lol
Yea that's something you should look into as well. Though it's not something people will notice that's missing unless they are like HARDCORE fans lol But they can go away and not say anything lol

Anyway on getting one, I agree that all those stores erayachi said are great places to look.
