Wanted: Quotes for jacket for Irisa (Defiance) [Image Heavy Thread]
Hi there,

I am looking to get quotes for the jacket worn by Irisa in Defiance:


From behind (slightly more detail)

(There are other detail images around but as I'm not on my home PC I'm unable to resize them to fit the forum - if there is interest I will pop them up later )

The jacket is leather in the series but due to budget constraints leathette/pleather would be more than adequate. I am roughly a size 14 to give an idea of measurements, and would be happy to have an existing garment modified if that would be easier than creating a whole new pattern.

Time frame is by the beginning of October if possible, so the rest of my cosplay can come together before MCM Expo. I am only getting an idea of quotes at the moment; any down payments/deposits etc would need to be after the 15th of July as that's my next pay day

Would love to hear back regarding this! Thanks a lot!

(Also if I've missed anything out just let me know!)

Can you be a bit more specific about what you want? If you're interested, my charges would depend on...

- How much detail do you want on it?
The jacket itself shouldn't be too much of a problem to create as it's a fairly simple box jacket just with a large collar & dipped sides. The really time consuming parts of getting this accurate are the breaking down (making it look old & scuzzy!). It's been painted, grated (grating leather is a bi-atch!) to make it scuffed & has hand stitching.

- Do you want to source a jacket to alter?
I'd advise getting two in order to match the fabric for the collar & dipped sides.

- Pleather is all well & good but grating into it to scuff it will reveal the yucky fabric underneath so painting it will be imperative.

If you would want me to make from scratch, in leather that I have sourced & be as screen accurate as you can get me pictures for I would charge between £600-750. If you source fabrics, that'll be cheeper, if you want less detail, that'll be cheaper, if you're happy to distress it yourself that'll be cheaper still...

Let me know if you're interested in chatting

Hi Hydraxia,

Thankyou so much for having a look at this! I really appreciate your time.

I will pop you over a message based on own-sourced pleather and aging it myself - I don't mind doing that and fixing any bare base colour! My real concern is the bottom hem shape and the oversized hood/collar.
