Here are finally a few pictures of Yanic's Van Helsing costume. It has been ready for a while, just didn't get around to posting. Also, the pictures are not the greatest, because somebody was having some attitude issues.... ;-)
The only things handmade on this costume are the coat and the tojo-blades. The coat is made from pleather and the blades are cardboard covered in aluminum foil.
In the beginning I was searching high and low for a coat pattern, because I could not wrap my head around making one myself. However, in the end I absolutely could not find one, and started measuring and cutting and sewing... It worked.
This costume is by far the most expensive one out of the three I made this year. I think I spent close to 25$, including the hat.
