Okay I have a few questions and need some help.

I am a fan of the Honor Harrington series (Horatio Hornblower... IN SPACE!) and want to cosplay a member of one of the enemy militaries.

Thing is about these uniforms is that they are very 'modern' in their dress. They aren't Star Trek/Wars like, they look like actual military uniforms > [URL="http://www.trmn.org/portal/cache/mod_roksprocket/c191d7378b3994ba95361329cfc741d6_478_1220.jpg"]Like this[/URL]

Now the enemy uniform, to everyone that I have talked to best knowledge we can get from the books, bears a heavy resemblance to the [URL="http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/770c6caa47d68a168d10731b2b2340e42ab401dd/c=0-0-505-380&r=x404&c=534x401/local/-/media/2015/05/20/GGM/NavyTimes/635677248922108194-service-dress-whites.jpg"]United States Navy white dress uniform[/URL].

So here come the questions:

How can I make it or possibly get it? (I can't make stuff to save my life)

I know how to play the character perfectly. Just the costume causing the problem.

And I know this cosplay MIGHT cause problems outside of a convention since it will look like I might be trying to valor steal (which is why this cosplay would never leave a convention unless in dire circumstance.)

They originally had Cosplaysky make them, but they require a bit of extra work to make them right. They are looking for a US company, IIRC

I have one, and have made some modifications.
