Help me find a jacket please!

Post by waffle_senpai » Thu Dec 15, 2016 4:35 pm

Since I am cosplaying Otabek Altin from Yuri!!! on Ice, I'm gonna be in street clothes. The thing is, is I can't find the motorcycle jacket that he wears for cheap and from a reliable store or online shop. I really want this jacket and I can't seem to find one anywhere that's not expensive or from an unreliable source.

Hi there,

could you post a screen shot of your jacket?
Also, what is your level of willingness to sew or at least modify a jacket?

Like this. And I can't sew for my life and it depends on how it needs to be modified.

Ah.

Ok.
Thrift shops are your friend. They're gunna be your best bet finding a jacket like that cheap.
My next suggestion is here: http://www.leatherup.com/p/Mens-Leather ... AiLF8P8HAQ

Leather jackets are crazy expensive, so if you can find a fake leather that's ideal.
Worst case is find a black jacket at Walmart and wrap parts with clear packing tape to get a shiny leather look. I then put leather polish on the tape when I did this trick.
Hope that helps!
