Hi guys! So my boyfriend and I are going as Rumple and Belle to NYCC this year. (The outfits from Skin Deep)

We are having trouble finding a gold puffy shirt and red vest for him. Any ideas?

Here's the thing. I've done this costume ([url]http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3282368/[/url]) and you're really gonna have to make it for accuracy. You might find a blouse, like a woman's gold blouse in a large size, that could pass. But the waistcoat is going to have to be made. It is brocade with leather trim and a full leather back, and there are grommets that go up both sides in the back and are laced with matching leather laces. I used a burgundy matte vinyl rather than real leather, but the process was pretty much the same. If you need help, I can try to describe how I made it, but I don't personally use pre-made patterns.

If you use patterns, I suggest something like a men's waistcoat pattern. Like this: [url]http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/mens-waistcoat-042013[/url] but altered to remove the pockets and the cincher belt thing in the back. Then you'd also want to add the tall collar yourself. Use lots of interfacing.
