Crafty people - Halloween help!

Hi!

My son is being captain crunch for a Halloween party and I'm having a horrible time finding a ROYAL BLUE sports jacket/coat ...

I've tried 7 salvation army stores, goodwill and thrift stores with no luck!!

I don't know if it's the color I need or the size, probably close to a 3x MEN.

I'm thinking of using just a royal blue dress shirt and then he will be putting big yellow felt/foam buttons on the shirt..

What do you think??

I really need help with less than a week till the party! Thanks!

Yes, I did try EBAY and the costs of some suit jackets are ridiculous...

Especially when we are using it once.

Do you know anyone who works at Walmart? Don't they wear royal blue jackets or is that just vests?

How about a blue sweat shirt or long sleeve Tshirt? By the time you get epaulets, buttons, stripes, etc on it (You could even make a felt collar if you wanted)- the idea would be there?

I'd think it'd be easier/cheaper to find a royal blue one of those, than a royal blue dress shirt. (Unless you already have one?)

Excuse my stupidity --- epaulets? Are those on the shoulder?

I don't have one, but i'm sure I can find a dress shirt on clearance...

Felt collar? I know he's in the process of making a foam hat hehe

What about going to a medical supply store and getting a white lab coat? You can them dye it to whatever color you need.
