Organization XIII cosplay coats by 8-13 Organization XIII cosplay coats by 8-13
Well, we promised to actually -show- the coats themselves...so, here are a few of them, finally, to show off some of the different options. ^_^

The one on the left was part of a big group order that just went out to Kentucky and the one on the right went all the way to Brunei!
(Saeru stuck them on quickly for a few photos since they were similiar measurements...and it looks much nicer on a person than a dress-form.)

:star: If you are making your own coat, the giant zippers can be purchased from us individually here = [link]

:) these are the most amazing orgXIII coats i have ever seen. these are the most accurate to the game, so i worship you for that.
i have a question though...so you have to buy the chains/beads and pendulums along with it if you want them on the coat?

I personally feel that the functional hoods look much nicer than the fake ones, even if the fake ones are more screen-accurate.

The functional hood turned out really nice here. They look very good from the front, though from the back there is this big 'hood bulge' that is less than excellent...which is why, if one is wearing a wig at all, its just better to go flat. x-x But I was pleased with the outcome too! Thanks!

Gah, man, those are even more impressive because you do match them to the character. I'm looking for a new one myself, for Axel. My current one looks more like a ballgown. XD

I was looking at the ones that your group had, actually (I love the picture with Namine and Marluxia,) and couldn't find a pic of you as Axel. Your wig looks really great from what I can see from behind, though! Do send us a note if you are interested. ^.^

There you are! I had just been looking in your gallery. Its not a bad coat on you, the pleather just doesn't seem to photograph well.

I think all the information is listed in the link at the top of this picture...
But here it is again just in case! [link]

Oh! There are the prices. <3

Yeah, it was an excellent coat for me at first - I only paid 80, and that included the shipping. A great buy, and custom fit for me, but not quite as good on Axel. On almost any other member it would be, but his coat should be slimmer all the way around.

*nodding* It was one of the ebay coats? They're not bad for the price, I definitely agree. I can't compete with them in that regard, but I can at least promise accuracy to what my customers desire, and that pleases me. ^.^ It takes a real Kingdom Hearts fan to notice the differences in the various coats...I only wish we had more variation on zipper sizes so that we could accomodate. x-x

those look amazing, smaller zipper looks better imo

8-13 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2009
The small zipper looks best up close, but the further away you get the more it turns into a silver line and looks less like a zipper. So they each have their advantages. ^.^ And thanks!

So long as they are lined, they fit like a glove.
Hm. Well, like a well-fitted nice leather glove without the itchy wool inside.

It does make one feel rather empowered, as well.

The guy who requested the right one was extremely specific about the coat matching the Deep Dive render, so I had to change several parts of the pattern to accomodate. Each coat I've ended up making has been drastically different from the last, but I learn something new each time!

Wow, these are fantastic! Just what I've been looking for!

Question: How long do you think you'll be recieving commissions for these for? I'd love to buy one, but it will certainly take some time to save up enough money.

Currently I get two or three requests a day, and that tends to increase towards the summer con season. I don't foresee myself quitting any time soon, however. ^.^ Just make sure you leave some advance time in case there is a waiting list! (We also do payment plans, so a number of people pay a part of the price immediately in order to reserve a spot. ^.~)
Thanks also for the compliment!

Those giant zippers are so amazing xD I love them

I really want an org coat, but I don't cosplay and I am not sure I could pull off wearing something like that normally.

..why can't everyone dress like we live in a FF game?

Shipping is really a killer. x-x Thankfully we've got an excellent post office in the US, but that doesn't help much with international orders. x-x

Aw geez. I love your work, guys.

If it starts to look like I won't be able to get my coats done by September, I seriously might commission you.

I took a look at your stuff...really like your commissioned Axel wig and the Demyx hair you did. ^.^ Definitely give me a look up if you need some coats by the fall...I've been in those tight spots before where sometimes its easier just to have someone else take care of the work and not be stressed by it. x-x

Ah, thank you so much!! I'm so glad you like. :) And yeah, I'm in a tight spot with my chakrams. Hopefully I'll be able to commission those, I have a great artist in mind.

I bought some zippers from you a few months ago, actually. I'll need another one, since I'm making two versions of the coat for myself. I'm hoping I'll be able to get everything finished by September.
I do have a question, though - do you have any close up photos of your chains and pulls? I'd love to see the charm at the end of the pull, specifically.

There are some folks who do excellent chakrams out there. ~rogueymu does a nice set.

Sure! [link] Hope that helps. ^.^ If you end up stuck on those we do actually sell pull sets for $25 (geeze I sound like an advertising campaign. Sorry about that!)

Oooh...I remember Fev talking about that one a while back...the Sasuke sword. She said that your Roxas was a pleasure to work with. (*went and looked at your Axel and Roxas pictures and found them adorable ^.^*)

suu a base coat comes with a flat hood and a zipper?
I would like one but I would love to have the bangle/chain thing :D (not a real commission)
do you gave an idea what shipping to Canada would be like?
Reply
:icon8-13:
8-13 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2008
The standard coat comes with the big zipper and the "down" position hood. And we make just the chain part separately, too.

Actually, we go up to Canada a lot. (Saeru is there right now.) We'll be coming back up in a few weeks to pick up Elemental for Ohayocon, so we could mail directly there to save some postage cost. Let me go check into the rates...
