Ah, I can help with the pants no problem.

You'll need 2 pairs of trousers for the pants. I'd reccomend Denim Jeans for the Black part (Which are left practically unaltered) and then a lighter material for the white section.

You'll need to buy some button poppers or something aswell, these will be used to fasten each half together. (Working exactly like the buttons on a jacket)

Now, you have to cut the legs off the white pants, making sure to leave plenty of excess material.
Measure the legs up and cut them down so they would come above the knees (About an inch or 2 above should do)
If you like (To make it look better) fold back a small amount of the top of the legs and sew it in, hiding the cuts you had to make.

Now, what I did, was use around 4 button poppers on the top of each leg of the white material. Then you'll need to carefully match the material up on the black pants and punch in the other half of the buttons. Then you can just pull up the white legs around the jeans, and button them together and that should hopefully make the pants for Roxas' costume.

If dont know what I mean by the button poppers, try and find your closest Dunelm store. The button poppers are basically a set of make-it-yourself buttons, which have to practically be smashed together to make one half of a button (Place the material between the peices of the button half and puch them together with the clamp provided (Use a pair of adjustable pliers to help make sure the peices are connected nice and tight)

I'll put up some pictures later, to show you what I mean, along with what I did for the jacket.

Hurm i agree with above, but i made a pair of roxas trousers, DONT use just the 4 popper things on either side to hold them on, seriously, they will drive you mad. xD
also, if your on a tight budget, go to the fabric store and then get some beige material [you should find the popper/buttons there to] and then get about a meter and a half and cut the shape of the leg you want [see if your mum has an old trouser pattern and edit that] and then simply machine it down either sides and then hem the bottom and top ^___^

Button poppers eh....Aren't they like the buttons at the end of the bed sheets that click together...?

I'm actually confused about the colour - is it white or beige well beige would get less dirty....
Thanks so much for the help!

COAT
Anybody have an idea where I can buy the coat.Secondly should i stitch on the checkered patterns or buy them 0_o?

I think it is a beige yeah, but white works pretty well too IMO.

Cant really help on the coat. I bought a full jacket and edited, but it cost a fair bit...
Id probably stitch the pattern on if possible. Better yet, see if you can get some fabric pens, they would do the job well I suppose.
