First kind of request like this I've had!

I would say check out any local thrift store you can. These look pretty basic.
If you have a sewing machine you should be able to make the necessary alterations. :o

Otherwise, maybe check and see if Uniqlo sells online in America?
They're basically like the Japanese GAP & you might be able to find something similar to what he's wearing there.

(Japanese sizes are much different, make sure you find an appropriate size chart.)

I always have questions that I want to ask on CR, but just never could figure how that would turn out. In this case I'm glad to see my question didn't go unanswered.... and thanks for the info for a good start. I can snag my sisters sewing machine if it comes down to doing a few modifications....

Just want to make sure my first con is a success... and if all goes well, maybe try out for that CR ambassador program. With this being my last year as a comp sci undergrad, I want to have some fun

DO EET!
Victoria convinced me to cosplay at the first con I worked.
I ended up putting together an outfit in a week and making this big crazy paper mache mask thing. IT WAS INTENSE!

But yeah! I'm sure if you hit up some thrift stores or local stores you'll be able to piece something together!
