Modern Priestly Clothes

Hello everyone - I do hope you can help, as I'm having little luck at the moment.

I'm looking for somewhere I can buy priestly clothing, for a fairly tall, thin guy. It needs to be red, not black, and preferably without crosses etc on it. I'm ideally looking for a cassock, hood, and perhaps a chasuble. These are going to be modified into a costume for an Adeptus Mechanicus member (Tech Priest).
I don't have a huge budget - so most places that sell actual priests vestments are out of my price range.

Alternatively, do you know of a good costume maker who would be able to make some things like these (for under £200-ish)? Especially good if they can do some embriodery/applique/etc of cogs and skulls!

I highly recommend The Costume Mercenary (http://costumemercenary.blogspot.com/) who makes gorgeous kit for good prices.
To give you an idea of her work, have a look at this piece which just screams Cult Mechanicus: http://costumemercenary.blogspot.com/2009/12/steampunk-coat.html

This has been some time ago, but just thought it might be worth adding that we did a cassock ( http://costumemercenary.blogspot.com/2010/11/commission-black-linen-cassock.html ) recently. For Athengenia, actually, but just a note.

I'd suggest Velvet Glove as she's good and can do most things at very reasonable prices. Check out http://www.velvetglove.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/

Is this for Death unto Darkness?

yup - my three-days work, last minute attempt at a tech-priest costume wasn't all that good - so I'm trying to get something better for the next game!

I have a great pattern for a cassock! But I suck at finding time to make anything :'(
