Cosplay Project: Matt by TofuAlchemist Cosplay Project: Matt by TofuAlchemist
Oh my gawd this took me so long...
My only regret is that I couldn't get ahold of any good Matty boots.. But it was way too hot to be wearing boots anyways. And I love my Converses. 8D


For those who are interested, this is where I got all of my stuff from:
- The goggles are "Eagle" goggles, from the Birdz brand.. I got them over Ebay.
- You'd think you could find a proper Matt shirt in any old shopping mall, but apparantly not.. So I bought mine online (over www.skateamerica.com). The brand name of the shirt is "Fallen".
- I made the vest from scratch, modifying a pattern for a regular vest. I *may* make a sort of tutorial for this later, if people are interested.
- The gloves were originally Batman gloves. Quite literally. I bought them at a place called "Don's Costume shop" and modified them up the ying-yang..
- For his pants, I bought some normal, slim-fitting jeans from Bluenotes that were about three inches too long, then put them through the wash and put in the extra stitching. Again, if people want, I can make a tutorial for this.


I carried around several bars of chocolate, and dispensed them to any Mello cosplayer I ran into at the convention.. :D Good fun.


EDIT:
I have now posted a tutorial for how to create pants like these. It can be found here: [link]

Thank you all for all of your support! :love:

I love your cosplay! I'm finishing mine up by the end of this year hopefully, same goes for my Mello, and I have yet to figure out what to do about the vest... could you give me some pointers on the fabric and such you used?

This is one of the most amazing Matt cosplays I've ever seen o.o
You should make a tutorial for the vest, please^^
And I may have to steal your chocolate idea, if you don't mind xD It's super clever^^

No I don't, sorry... :(
Honestly I don't even really have enough time for my own projects these days.

Oh dang. Well that's okay!
I understand not really have enough time to do much. For me, between school and work, I don't have a lot of time to do much either. ^^
