Amane Suzuha (Steins;Gate) Cosplay - Jacket / Wig

Hello!

Last minute costume needs to be assembled for my sister who is now going to Otakon with me in just a few weeks. We're having difficulty finding a good wig and track jacket.

Specifically, the track jackets we find are either insanely priced, or are anything but plain like Suzuha's.

Some reference pictures : http://s2.zerochan.net/Amane.Suzuha.full.755298.jpg http://moe.animecharactersdatabase.c...zuha_Amane.jpg We already bought extra fabric to sew to it for the grey/orange/black, so just need a basic plane, blue base track jacket. We'd sew it, but that's a bit out of our time and skill range, so a pre-made is best.

As for the wig, we are thinking of using this one ( http://www.milanoo.com/Sweet-Brown-L...g-p199326.html ). We'd just braid it, cut the excess off and style the top as needed. I think that could work.

Any input? Thanks!

Have you looked at discount retailers like Walmart? often their items are very plain, it's how they sell them for less.

I have! Absolutely no luck. Either plain and terribly colored, or the right color but covered in symbols. So frustrating.

I dunno how many times I have to post it around the forums. DO NOT BUY FROM MILANOO. They are a MASSIVE scam company, with multiple sites. (I dunno how this isn't common knowledge by now....its probably that they pay people to spam good reviews and bump their sites to the top of google)

Otakons also in two weeks. The only way you'll get a wig in two weeks is by ordering from Arda or Epic cosplay.

here are a few coat options

Whoa, thanks for the heads up on Milanoo. First time doing cosplay stuff, so never heard of them. Glad I was warned!
