Here is a complete list of everything you need to make your own Nero Costume from the Devil May Cry 5 video game.
|The very first item of clothing you will need when putting together a Nero costume is a jacket.
Although the jacket worn by Nero appears black it is actually blue. It is also quite a long jacket.
You may find an exact replica but are more likely to find something that looks similar. The sleeves should be rolled up.

Ideally, these jeans should be a straight cut.
Nero Red Sweatshirt
|Under the jacket you will need to wear a dark red sweatshirt for your Nero costume.
This should be a simple dark red sweatshirt which, if you wish, should have the beginning of holes starting on the lower front. The sleeves should also be rolled up just like the sleeves on the jacket.
Nero Grey T-Shirt

This t-shirt should be grey in color. You should also attempt to make the t-shirt visible around the neck and have it hanging slightly lower than the sweatshirt.
