With hours of slaving over a sewing machine, its good because its hand made... most store bought are rip off prices and never as good replicas. I think the coat on ebay is about £100 and my costume was £120 in total... so although labourous, its intensively satifsying to have made it and that way you can go for real accuracy
holyyyy i /loved/ the movie it was so EPIC totally my favourite movie ever. XD and christian bale, heath ledger and aaron eckhart just light up the screen. i watched the movie about 5 times at the theatre.
