Costume Information

Description
JANUARY 2014 - remaking this costume to hopefully attend a One Piece cosplay meet and maybe London Anime Con. The biggest challenge is that I've decided to remake the jacket from scratch to challenge myself.

---

I've worn this at least three times (London MCM Oct 2007, London MCM Oct 2008 and London MCM Oct 2010). It was my costume I fell back on when I didn't have the ideas/time for anything else (though my wig is a little manky now so if I ever wanted to do him again I'd have to get another one). I found it very comfortable to wear, which can be a real god-send as the day goes on.

Belt! (Posted 25th January 2014)

Looking at screenshot, Sanji wear a belt. It won't be visible unless I remove my jacket, but I like doing the extra details where I can.

This was put together with a denim belt I won from eBay. The buckle was wrong, so I replaced it with one from natk-shop (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/141151459795). Painted the end with silver fabric paint and widened the belt loops of my trousers so it would actually fit through.

Wig arrived! (Posted 16th January 2014)

It's a little more golden than I thought it would be, but I'm still really happy with this. Just needs a bit of pinning back and a spritz of hairspray to keep down those stray strands and it's ready to go. Brought from pinganchina2012 on eBay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111159067296)

Jacket mock-up (Posted 7th January 2014)

Because I thought I would have to alter a pattern more than I actually will, I made a mock-up of the jacket out of muslin fabric. But I'm still glad I did because that's how I found out that some pieces need to be lengthened just a smidge. Plus it gives me a good idea for what I'm doing before cutting into my more expensive suiting fabric.

There are no fastenings and I didn't put it neatly on the dummy. That'll be why it looks a little sloppy in the pic.
