Bad Girl from No More Heroes

Post by Pig Army » Tue Feb 10, 2009 9:40 pm

Hey smarty pants's of acp! I need HELP! I'm trying to find red and pink striped fabric for bad girl's cosplay, but for some reason I can't find any fabric that's even close. I was wondering if anyone had ever cosplayed her before and if so where did you get the fabric? If not maybe some of my peeps would have ideas about how to go about this? I was thinking that I could paint pink fabric with red fabric paint, but i don't want it to look all home -made and cheap. Please this is killing me! any ideas at all would be appreciated.

If you can find a red and white striped fabric, you can dye it pink/fuchsia and get a good, professional looking result. Make sure you rinse, rinse, rinse after dying and use product or vinegar to set the dye before sewing the fabric.

Look in upholstery fabrics, drapes, bed sheets, tablecloths, and other places too for the stripes --not just apparel fabric.
