Red face Soul Eater Costume Help!

Hi there, everyone!

I'm almost finished with the costumes for my Soul Eater cosplay. I'll be going to MetroCon this year as Maka, and my fiancée will be going as Black Star. Unfortunately, I'm having a little trouble finding patterns/tutorials for Maka's vest, Black Star's boots or how to make his chain scythes super smooth and looking more like metal. I would normally refashion clothes/shoes that I already have. However, I've entered the costume contest, and 80% of the costume has to be made from scratch.

Any thoughts or suggestions, guys? Please help.

Uh I've heard of a lot of people using a trench coat for a refrence for Maka's jacket.

I made some awesome chain scythes for my Black Star cosplay. I followed this tutorial, and put my own twists with the materials I had.

As for the boots, I didn't make them big, but I am going to this summer. I'm thinking about either putting in foam, or buying clown shoes and put them just in the front of the shoe.

Hope this helps

Since your cosplays have to be 80% made by you, you can still get Black Star's shoes online. There are quite a few places that sell tons of clown shoes, and that sell actual clown shoes that look like his. Start and everything..Just look for "clown shoe with star" on google and you should see a bunch. They aren;t "cosplay shoes" so they are higher quality.

Anyway, on the Kusarigami, Making them look metal is going to be pretty hard. But krylon makes this amazing silver spray paint that looks pretty metalish to me. It's the closest I got, but I was also using insulation foam, so it depends on the material you are using as well. There are a few tutorials on how to get a more metal look to props too.

And 3-Swords CEO, do you have the liscencing to do such a thing? Making them in bulk to sell as a vendor, the creators and whatnot have to actually give you permission that you can show in a court of law, that you are allowed to reproduce them in that fashion

They don't need to as long as I change the product by 10%. Usually this is done by changing the color of the prop or name.
Also the con knows full well what I'm selling and feels my work doesn't violate copyright laws.
