Devil May Cry 3 Virgil cosplay

Hey every, been a while since i've been on here, but again i need help working out a cosplay, relatively simple, but with a few snags im stuck on. Im thinking of cosplay Virgil from Devil May cry 3. The coat is relative easy, just a blue-ish outer, with a red lining, and bucles on the sleaves, but i havent been able to find any good pictures of the vest aport, and what looks like a scarf or somehting. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this, as i want the cosplay to be a close to perfect as humanly possible.

You know Ive seen Virgil pics that were not the same as that. I actually thought it was more period wear than that. I could have sworn he wore a suit coat, and a waist coat. The frilly thing in the front of his vest isnt a scarf, its a thingie that I cant remember the name of...we were just talking about it the other nite. I wonder if they changed the costume, because I remember Virgil's outfit being more victorian in look, than asian like the pics you have here.

Im guess those are screen shots from DMC4?

No those are definitely pictures from Devil May Cry 3. Maybe other pictures of Vergil that you saw were concept drawings.

I think Vergil's coat is actually pretty hard to make. Though it looks kind of simple, there's tons of details and trim on it that are just

If by trim, you mean the white design on the coat, thats gonna be pretty easy. If i give up trying to stitch it on myself, im gonna grab some top quality white fabric paint and make a stencil for the design. the only hard part for the coat that i can see is the sleeves, and thats more of a pain in the ass, since i gotta edit the sleaves to make room for the buckles (not the right word, lol only one i can think of). I want to base it on the concept sketch i attached, since it looks cooler by far. If i can im gonna keep it as simple as possible, probably a 1920s style vest and the scarf like thing some old gangsters used to wear, kinda like Aion from Chrno Crusade.

COuld be, but then again its really hard to get a good look at him when he is handing me my @$$ in the game. I believe there is a gallery at the end of DMC3. I swear his outfit was more victorian in look, but then again Ive been wrong before.

BTW I went through your costumes and I have to admit wow is an understatement....

You're thinking of Sparda's outfit ^^ Vergil's is kinda similar to his though~

I added an attachment with a pic of his costume below ^^

No, I don't mean the white design on his coat (though I think that will take a lot of time in its own right). It's the yellow lining that goes all the way around the edges of his entire outfit that's . It goes around all the edges of his coat, his cuffs, collar, and the design on the back. The images I have attached in a previous post of mine are from the official DMC 3 manga, which are accurate designs compared to the video game ones, and I usually try to base my outfits, props and all, to be as close as possible to the original designs.

Akado, I've seen your Vergil cosplay before and I think it's quite nice. What type of material did you use to make the coat and how did you do the white design on it?

Thank you ^^ I'm glad you like it :3 I used an uber heavy type of vinyl for the coat :d For the white parts I handpainted the top parts of the design first. Then for the design that goes all the way down the coat, I made a stencil, covered it in paint and then pressed it onto the material. It helped me get a good outline before I added more layers of paint ^^ After that I got a glaze to go over it in so the paint didn't smudge :d
*Note* All the pics that I have of my Vergil costume were before I put the glaze on so the paint looks all smudey and stuffs >_< I recently cleaned off all the smudges (took me three hours @__@) and added the glaze :d So it looks much better now~ Once I find a pic I'll upload it ^^;;

Yup, that is the alternate Dante outfit you unlock after you beat the game on Hard mode (which the name implies, that mode is really, really hard!). There is also a cheat that will allow you to unlock everything, galleries and all, without finishing the game. I personally think that takes the fun out of it, but if you're having trouble completing it or just want to see it anyways, a quick visit to Gamefaqs should get you your answers.

And thanks for your outfit tips Akado .

Sorry bout the lack of updates on my cosplay. lol been driving myself half insane trying to get it as close to perfect as possible. lol ended up drafting in my grandmother to help with it. And to sum it up in one word........WOW. May not exactly like her (wont get into that here) but damn, the woman's got some talent. The coat is almost perfect. Just got the design to paint onto it and its done. As for the rest fo the cosplay, i had ot make a couple shortcuts, dues to money, and shops being out of stock of what i need. I had to leave the crevatte out, since no where had the kind i was after, and i just bought a basic black mens dress vest. And the wig.......no wig, left that to the last minute so i couldnt find what i wanted. Just gonna temp dye my hair white. Ah well, im happy with how its turned out. The con is tomorrow, so i'll upload any photos of it each night for everyone to check out.

Thanks again for all your help, everyone who gave me ideas.
