    I'm sure you can. I just thought I'd save you a few bucks and put my gloves to good use for once.

    OK. So I've started getting more serious about this, er rather, I've been finding more time to work on my Smoker cosplay.

    While I was out today, my sis and I went to Plato's Closet, a resale store. This cute cordaroy jacket caught my eye... It has the perfect look that I am going for as far as how I want to put the fur trim on my jacket.
    So basically, I took pics to reference off of when I start sewing...
    Front...

    Back...

    Cuffs...


    If it was a white jacket, I'd have bought it right then and there. I'm sure I could bleach it, but that can backfire on me, so I'm good with what I have. Also, it was a size too small for me XD

    I think one day when I have money to spend on clothes, I'll chance setting foot in an Abercrombie & Fitch store to see if I could find this jacket in my size... I thought it was too cute~

    Oh, and I found the perfect navy pants there! They are dickies, and I only paid $12 for em. The color is almost spot on! Pics of that later ^^

    Actual progress, omg......

    I found the PERFECT pants! they only cost me $12 at Plato's Closet! <3

    yes my mirror is dirty, no i don't care. I'm out of windex.....

    Also, the belt, which I bought at Wal Mart...


    Oh, and here is a pic of the fur that I am using for the jacket...


    Aaand... randomly, since I was trying to work on fixing it, here is my haramaki from my Zoro cosplay


    I made it out of an ugly green tanktop.... I am so glad I found it, it was just dead on perfect, just what I had wanted for my haramaki

    Great costume workings so far. I recommend that you have fake cigars attached to your jacket sleeve so that 1) you don't have to worry about tobacco smell, 2) if for some reason they aren't secured properly, you don't have to worry about them breaking apart if they fall, and 3) you don't have to worry about buying too many that are the right size/shape.

    (I'm assuming you'll probably buy at least two for the ones in your mouth.)

    Also, are you going to make Smoker's weapon?

    Thanks a bunch! ^^

    Yeah, I should get fake cigars, I don't really know where to look for some though ^^; I don't want to have to make all of em, but if that is what I must do, then oh wells XD You do bring up a good point about the smell and the hassle of losing them...

    Yeah, I saw how betoman made his, it doesn't look too hard. I just need some PVC pipes and some red cloth for the hilt. And of course some chrome paint. I haven't had a chance to go to Home Depot, where I can probably find all of that minus the fabric, which I can get at a fabric store or Wal Mart or something XD

    Also, I don't really know how much PVC pipes cost, I need about 3-4 feet in length.... I need to go do some interweb research now.

    Ok, so after doing some researching i found out that PVC pipes are not expensive and I should be able to buy what I need.

    I am debating on if I should buy these fake cigars:
    http://madhattermagicshop.com/magics...oducts_id=3258

    They're cheap, but I don't know if I like how they're already 'lit'... Its fine for the two that will go in my mouth, but not for the ones on the jacket, since they don't look like that.... i dunno, it bothers me. I wonder if there is a way to modify them...

    And I found some brown work gloves that would work out perfectly, so unless I find some at Home Depot, I'm buying these:

    THIS is exactly what I had in mind for a wig!

    Umm... I think that is it for now, I believe I have covered most of the bases....

    A warning on chrome paint... it's the most delicate of spray paints I've seen... it takes ages to dry (I'm unconvinced it actually does) and it shows every imperfection. You might look at a metal-flake paint instead (aluminium or silver colour)

    For fake cigars, just cut strips of brown construction paper and roll those up. Probably pack it with crumpled up newspaper or something of a cigar/tube shape.
