My version of a Van Helsing costume. Handmade are the long coat and the tojo blades. I used pleather for the coat. The pattern is loosly based on pictures I found of Van Helsing on the internet. I took my son’s measurements and just started cutting away. Lot’s of small D-rings were used to imitate the closures on the coat.
The tojo blades are made from cardboard and covered in aluminum foil.
