hmmmm if you can get a hold of a Gosu Rori often they ahve patterns in them. It's in Japanese so if you don't read it it can take a while to decipher.

wellll sounds like you need to take it in. Sometimes it's a matter of tuking it in tighter but in a pinch pleating can take up a lot of the excess while leaving you the choice to let it out again.

ok cool so far, I am considering that, though I wouldn;t mind a costume that is a bit more complicated. (Secretly I am looking at doing Le Chev.D'eon. Lia's dress.) but yeah I like a good few ideas to choose from.

Putting my hat in the ring

Ok I've done a few costumes so far but I fugured it always helps to have ideas to keep things fresh. I've done Testament (female alt) and Baiken (alt costume) http://tn1-1.pv.deviantart.com/fs22/150/i/2007/312/e/d/mmm_a_happy_me_by_racheldesade.jpg This is a full body shot.

Well I would say go to Joanns and look for a winter set. Winter clothes are bigger and more often closed at the wrist, just forgo the stuffing.

Bias tape, or you could go with fabric paint. Looks like a bra top or a shortened vest. Make it snug around your barrel and a touch or rubber grip will make it hold in place better. Add a touch of fringe and you're good.

Trust me hunny I'm fluffy to Corsets are a gift if you can stand to wear them. I went as a female version of Testament (Guilty Gear) and Baiken Alt. Find what speaks to you give the group a reference pick and some of the animes you like and see what we can do.

lol well if you don't need funtional goggles (cause the picture looks really flat) Fabric, cut out the design and paint the eye spots, but functional ones would be so cool. As for the necklace you could try polymer clay (Michael's or Jo Ann's)

I live for this... I'm a people watcher. 1.Find a fabric you like cut a strip 2 inches wider than the size you want. On the back side cut a Interfacing and Cotton backing that is the size you want, fold the extra inch over on either side and glue/fuse tape it into place trim off the excess and away ...

hmm for the jacket you are looking a a modified trench Yoke (just past the shoulder blades) to front, shortened mod. sleeve (double fold bias tape will be your friend for the edging) with a slenderized side/front panel. Basic cargo pant with only one pocket simply put a few small pleats at the ankle...

You can also go to the Home decor part of a fabric store like JoAnn's; often they have leather or suede materials that are nice and sturdy.

Well if you have the figure for it go Dramacon. Alucard is done frequently but above that the outfit is HOT. Lots of layers. If you are going for comfort and something different, Dramacon.

Don't look at the needle look in front of it, be hypnotized by the fabric. take a deep breath, maybe play some music or TV. Don't go in tense it makes it less fun and you don't Flow. Make some unimportant things like a tool holder. 2ft square, hem each edge fold in half and sew lines from top to bot...

Joann's or Michael often have blank masks, a heat gun and some careful work can help flatten it a bit or you can look online for wonderflex.

A womens dressshirt, joann's may have a pattern. small cinching modifications, and I know it sounds odd but think of making the frount pannel solid while placing a thin zipper at the back, it will eliminate gaping in the button area when it's nice and snug. Work with a nice lycra if you can find it ...
