Diesel Deux

Been quietly tending to a few costumes here and there. Kya was made and was HOT AS CRAP to wear. Dante got a new buckle, belt loops, and guns. Figured I might as well post about what I was tooling around with today.

Couple of months ago I took a vote on what dye batch looked best for to match the Diesel coat worn in DMC2. Finally got off my lazy bum an at least dyed the fabric so I could get started when I wanted to.

I didn’t think finding a pattern to mod would be hard but I was wrong. Only one of the normal pattern makers make a motorcycle jacket, Burda. They are German and do things a little different. Well a LOT different than Simplicity or McCalls. So this should be interesting. Lets get crazy.
