Description
Jin is my favourite Blazblue character. i just love how crazy he is. I didn't expect to like him when I first saw the game, but after playing through I decided he was awesome.I really want to try and make this costume, even if it doesn't quite suit me.

1st attempt making boot covers (Posted 8th August 2011)

This is the 1st time I have ever made boot covers before, and to be honest... they are terrible XP I'm not even sure if they are gonna hold together.

I didn't really know how to make them, but a cosmode sugested I trace round the boot and use that as a template. It sort of worked, but I really need to improve on them later or just buy some next time

Jacket nearly done (Posted 25th November 2010)

I have been working almost non stop on trying to get this costume together.
The pattern I had was not completly accurate to jin, so i decided to cut out the material to how the pattern was and then adapt it later. I had to bring the arm holes in more because jin's go quite far into his back and I had to make the slight gap in the back of the jacket. I also had to expand out the red on the front of jin's coat ( if that makes sense). Now I'm on to lining the jacket and making all the accessories. Unfortunatly I have ran out of the royal blue material, and the market doesn't currently have it in stock, so I will have to wait to make the sleves, but I can soon move on to the next layer of Jin's costume.

I've ordered the wig from Jenifer wigs on ebay, because even though it wasn't a jin wig, it looks better than the jin wigs you can buy and was better value for monney.

starting out (Posted 8th September 2010)

I've got my Materials and my patterns now. I'm using two patern from simplicity (since they are half price currently) Ones a coat pattern which looks a lot likes Jin's and the other is a cape/ star wars pattern for Jin's undershirt.

I haven't had time yet to start cutting it out yet, but I will be starting soon.

I have found a wig on the net that looks like ti should be good for Jin, and it's a lot cheaper than the original one I found which was about £40 ( and it's better quality from a seller I can trust because i have used them before.)

Once I have got so much underway I need to start thinking of how to make Yukinessa and practice my crazy face.
