Long story short: My aunt has been telling me for years that I look like Rasputin and this year I plan to finally portray him.

Anyone have any good ideas on where to find a cassock and boots similar to what he is most famously photographed wearing?

Boy, I have been scouring the internet looking for a cassock similar to Rasputin's. Found a couple that come awfully close but they cost between $200 -$300 for them. Do you know anyone who is a good sewer, preferably a seamstress or a tailor? They might be able to combine a couple of patterns and make one for you. I can't help you with the boots, as I have no idea what kind he wore. I can't seem to find any clear pics. of his feet/boots.

Good luck.

I've seen plenty of patterns, but that's quite a task!

It is important that you learn this important... ritual before you don the costume, or else you won't convince anyone!

Edit: I love Edmund's first post! You could always resell such a nice piece. The "mad scientist" looks good too!

Here's something along the lines of the style, not cheap, (like HauntedWyo was mentioning) but it's a start for a pattern or style to hunt down? http://www.ccsutlery.com/store/union-frockcoat-chaplin.html


Or this little number, a lot cheaper, maybe less than historically accurate?

That is almost perfect. Gah, that price tag is a bit much :/ I suppose I need to hone my sewing skills and just make it myself.

Funny enough, I've got the Howie in white.
