Figured since I'm actually putting effort into this cosplay, I'm starting a thread.
Some progress on Femme Smoker~
I went to the Galleria, and after searching and searching, I was pointed out to a store called Papaya, and I asked if they had one of those bolero jackets in white…. They did, and it was on sale! $10!
Only thing about it is, the sleeves are short, but everything else is just like I wanted it! I also got some cheap vests that were the same material, I was thinking of cutting off pieces of those to extend the arms on the jacket…
And then finally, my favorite part of the costume, that actually gave me the idea to cosplay Smoker… My awesome boots!
NOW. I have quite a bit of work to do on that jacket. I gotta find the green fur trim and the blue trim, and of course the cigars and something for the red kanji for "Justice" on the back… Lots of little things that need work. Also, I'm still searching for some dark brown gloves, I hear working gloves would work well... and of course, the PVC pipes for the jutte.
My goal is to at least have this done in time for Oni Con, or if I time it right, maybe for Anime Fest....
