Cyberpunk 2077 Fan Made Samurai Jacket Would Make You the Talk of Night City
Check out this amazing Cyberpunk 2077 Jacket made by Valentine Costumes.
Cyberpunk 2077 is unmistakably one of 2020s most anticipated titles and now that many of us have already flown through The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, exploring the Night City is the next big adventure on the gamer list. We’ve seen Cyberpunk 2077 get a few setbacks from its September launch date and is now planned to arrive on November 19, 2020, but even though this kind of news is always annoying, receiving a more polished game outweighs the disappointment every time. To make the wait a little easier, check out this incredible identical replica of the Cyberpunk 2077 protagonist’s jacket in the game complete with neon lights.
The designer of this bold and beautiful jacket is Andy Valentine also known as Valentine Costumes on social media who hails from Bristol, England. Andy is also is a costume maker and international cosplay guest. To produce a jacket of this quality you can bet your bottom dollar that a ton of hours went into it; five months and 400 hours to be exact. Andy stated that the lighting for the jacket was particularly troublesome and the topstitching took a really long time but not only that, Andy had to purchase an £800 flatbed industrial sewing machine that could handle the thickness of the leather.

When asked on Reddit if he would ever make them for mass production, Andy replied “If anyone ever opts to make and sell these they’re not going to be cheap. They’re so much work” continuing “If I were to make them (which I won’t), I’d likely streamline the process to make a few a once, and a lot of the time that was needed in the modeling of this version wouldn’t need to be repeated (that’s probably 25% of the time), but you’d probably run around £2k+ a time, yeah.”. The jacket comes equipped with an LED-lit collar and V1 and V2 collar knobs, hand-painted Cyberpunk Oni, customized zippers and so many other bits and bobs that make this jacket stand out from the rest. If you happen to be out and about in this jacket and wonder how long the batties last, Andy states that a 3000mAh gives him about 4 hours and finds himself carrying three of them at any one point.
