Construction Details:
Before anyone asks, yep, I made the coat myself! The material is a black clothing PVC from SYFabrics; it's an absolute dream to work with! It cuts just like butter and it photographs beautifully. I did double seams instead of piping because, frankly, piping just looks ridiculous with these coats. The coat is fully lined because PVC does not breathe. At all. The chain detailing is made from Sculpey; it Velcros across the front of the coat. As far as a pattern is concerned, I modded a Butterick coat pattern using Saeru's Matrix tutorial as a general guide. (And she's an absolute angel for making that tutorial!)
Personal Thoughts:
When I first got into cosplay, I was like, "Oh hey, I adore Marluxia as a character, I should totally cosplay him!" Disregarding the fact that, you know, I'm completely girly in every possible way. But by the time I realized that this probably wasn't a good idea, I'd already ordered a wig and... so on and so forth. It was actually a lot of fun to cosplay as him, though! And making the coat was certainly a learning experience, as I did it without any sort of base pattern - it was the first piece I made the pattern for. I'm extremely proud of how it turned out! I've (fortunately) decided to retire Marluxia. I'd originally wanted to finish his scythe (which has been lying half-finished in my basement for a little over a year), but I've come to the conclusion that I'll never finish it. I'm not entirely choked up about it, though! I've switched to Xion instead!
