I originally posted this in the newbie section, as it was my first con this weekend. I really -want- to do a dante Cosplay, but I don't know where to start really.
I went to AnimeIowa for the first time to year and needless to say I loved it. It was my very first Con..and it was the best time of my life i've ever had. Now i've decided I want to Cosplay though.
I looked at my hair..and realized it's like a slightly shorter and sandy blonde version of Dante from Devil may cry, and i'm about medium build.
So! I've decided that..I'm going to try to cosplay Dante from Devil May Cry
( For those of you who don't know who that is, here's a few ref shots )
With that being said, I have no skill as a tailor. but yet..i'm not really sure where i should get started?
does anyone know where I can buy pieces of the outfit/ get it commissioned?
Aside from the weapons and boots, I have about 250 dollars stashed for it. Would that be enough?
I just generally need help..and if you can, it would be much appreciated from a second-time con goer next year who wants to play DDR as dante and have an excuse to do backflips in the hotel hallway.
I -really- need help! And I don't know of any cosplayers in my area. ; - ;
I don't know where to start with the red shiny fabric stuff. Wouldn't it just be easier to buy his jacket and pants? I'm just really lost and need help with that costume dissection..
I guess my biggest problem is that trenchcoat. And I have no knowledge about sewing..so i'm worried I can't get it completed in 1yr.
Can anyone offer any advice? Please?
