This is how I make jackets quickly. I trace patterns onto tissue paper from existing jackets then measure the front + back sleeve holes and cut the general sleeve pattern.
Midorima’s legit Mizuno sneakers are over $200 on ebay. So I went to Payless Shoe store and picked up a pair of white sneakers ($27), traced a pattern onto tissue paper, transferred the pattern to pleather, cut out the shapes and glued them to the shoez. Gotta wait until they are dry to paint them. :3

I made a chest binder out of cotton canvas/denim fabric, interfacing & Velcro.
It starts as a rectangle. Then you cut a few arm notch holes for your under arms. Then add straps and Velcro.
Today I sewed on Nisa’s zipper… Zipped it up. Then it wouldn’t unzip. Lol. I rolled around trying to pull it down for 23 minutes. I gave in & undid stitches at the top to get it off. This is going to require a lot more fine tuning before I wear it to con. The zipper is very heavy and hangs funny. I’ll have to run wire through it.
I’m going to attempt to make the Shutoku jacket & pants using existing jackets I have to pattern off of. The one on ebay is ~$130+. The black lined details are probably the most difficult part. Nothing I can’t handle. ;D
