At long last, the commission for Jin Kisaragi is finished! I think it's safe to say that I will probably never cover another pair of boots again. It was not fun, but I managed to wrangle the fabric and the boots and beat them into submission. But it damned near drove me crazy! Just glad it's done now.
The costume itself is a costume satin, lined with red silk essence. The tunic is made of the same costume satin and white silk essence, and is also lined with the white silk essence. The belt is leather-look vinyl that's lined with gabardine and laces up the back by way of grommets.
To keep the collar and the sleeve thingies standing up straight, I used a HEAVY duty interfacing. I love heavy duty interfacing. It's amazing.
Anyway, underneath it all is a full length spandex jumpsuit that zips up the front.
