I'll be doing K' this year (postponed AGAIN from Katsu to probably Otakon) and I agree, those are the hard parts.

Two points about the jacket though... I have seen a male's jacket with the button collar, zippers on sides and sleeves, etc once, but don't know where to get it. It's much easier to find a women's version that is practically the same (and probably cheaper). -_-; Does anyone have sites of ones that would be close and/or could be altered?

That WOULD be helpful.Also,a few other questions,how important would you say his leather pants are? I'm thinking of going with chaps-over-jeans and just fudging it?
And lastly,has anyone got a decent pic of the:
"A Beast of Prey"
Across his jacket?

I plan on making some kind of chaps (vinyl or pleather) and wearing over pleather pants (that's going to be hot in summer!). I'd say that as long as you have chaps what kind of pants are on underneath don't matter as much - all you can really see are the pockets from them anyway so it wouldn't be a big deal and not using leather would certainly save money.

As far as source pictures go, sites like http://www.kofonline.com should have some (if you have good links please post). I used to check http://kd0084.com but apparently that's down now.

And is anyone planning on being Kula or Whip? My roommate is going to be Maxima soon too (possibly Katsu) so I have that covered.

*Goes back to dreaming of a K/Maxima/Whip/Kula team in 2003*


Edit - Or Vanessa! She's my best in 2k anyway, even if she goes with Iori before heading her own team. I'd laugh if I saw a Ramon too, that would be cool. And if anyone ever does Lin that will be a sight to see...

[/fanboy] Ok ok, I'll stop for now...

K' would be a very cool costume, with the gray hair, the red gloves and all the leather biker gear. Being an SNK fanboy myself, I wouldn't consider it difficult because they're all fairly regular (but very fitted) clothes.

The character Remy from Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike also has a very similar jacket (no shirt under), so I'm also interested in finding this particular piece.

Buying raw leather could be very expensive, and even harder to make such a garment yourself. If worse comes to worse, I'd just go with a girl's jacket (they fit tighter and are smaller). Who cares if the buttons are sewn on the right side.

Interesting co-inky dink,but I'm asking all this for the san deigo con in about.....4 months.Would you believe my group has:
K' (hopefully)
Original Kyo
Iori
May Lee
Maxima
and
Vanessa

Someone doing lin would be WAY cool......unfortunately,the person would have to have the proverbial "abs of steel"!
Also,any ideas on how to modify this glove:

to make it a K' glove?

As far as K' goes I'll be working out this semester to get ready for him and other guys I'm cosplaying (*cough*Bart*cough*). That's a nice size group already, I think mine for Otakon will be good as well.

And actually K' has white blonde hair. I'm debating whether I want to get a wig, spray my hair, or just go ahead and dye it because I may be cosplaying one or two other characters with white hair at Otakon and the white hair would look awesome.

And you shouldn't need to worry about buttons too much as far as jackets go, since it's a zipper down the middle.

If you were going to use that glove I'd say start by painting it black and then take, sew, or do something in red overtop.

My personal opinion is that it's silver/white hair......

My friend Mack cosplayed as K' a couple of years ago, and I had the fun of cosplaying with him. I think my old site of KOF cosplay pics from 1999 to 2001 should still be up, so here's the site:

Sorry if the page is just links, but the descriptions should help you out a little..
Hope you like the pics!

I'd help, but I had such a "ghetto' K' costume, it wasn't even funny. I'm not going to wear it again.
