allo guys c: So okay, I have a convention (PMX nov.9-11), and i decided that my main cosplay is going to be Zoe for firefly. I have the pants, shirt and boots, will be easy. What i need help with or tips on are the holster she has.. and her VEST. God dammit, who though a brown vest would be so hard to find.
Please help Gaians ! c:

For the vest, I would honestly find a vest that is cheap and of a somewhat similar style as her's. I would then order brown two-way stretch pleather from spandexhouse.com. You can either call to confirm your order or wait for them to call, they don't ask for your credit card info on the website, but ask for it over the phone. They ship VERY quickly, so it will arrive on time! I would then draft a pattern based on the similar-styled vest by seam-ripping it and laying it out on the fabric. You can of course make alterations if needed, or re-size it if the vest doesn't fit. Then just sew it up together! Stretch pleather would definitely be the perfect fabric of choice smile


As for the holster...you could use any leftover brown stretch pleather and draft a pattern yourself, or just buy a cheap one from Amazon or eBay. As long as it is similar to her's, you should be fine. I would imagine a gun holster like her's might get a little pricey, but I've never looked around for one before hehe.

No problem smile they have a lot of other fabric choices as well that may come in handy with future cosplays ^_^
