So my boyfriend and I are going to go as the Hunter and Little Red Riding hood to a convention. We're going to steampunk it up.

I want to make jacket of the Little red much like this one:

Back
Front

I mean i don't want to copy it outright or anything like that. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any tutorial or patterns similar as a jumping off point.

Also i was wondering if anyone knew of a way to make a lightweight wolf head, not like a mask or anything. I wanted to be able to carry it around like a "trophy" of the dead wolf.

We're also gonna have like "wicker" pouches made out of woven place mats to sub in for the picnic basket.  So I was wondering if anyone had a holster pattern and pouch patterns that they knew of.

Thanks in advance for your help, I will probably have more questions though as I start working on it.

Your photo links don't work properly. Took some finagling to get to the pix:

This is a perfectly awesome pattern to start with, and it's FREE! YAY!:

"Modern Pattern Design" (published in 1942) has a chapter on sleeves, which explains how to draft sleeves and alter a sleeve basic pattern into different types of sleeves (including the cuffed bishop sleeve and muttonleg sleeve that can be combined to recreate your example):
