Disclaimer: The Crocodile Costume by Hisako Matsumoto is completely ceramic-based; there is no trace of any animal leather.
The Crocodile Costume has a coat with matching shoes and a hat. From afar, the texture of the coat does look like real crocodile skin, but it really isn't. Matsumoto made this costume as a part of her final graduate project. Animal-free coats? We need more of these running around.
