Cosplay for Japan T+T+Q #3 don’t cheep out on the fabric!
Fabric is the main part of a cosplay and cutting corners on cost with cheap fabric will make your costume look cheap. Why spend your time making your costume if it won’t look good! Take the time to get good fabric and when you have got some practice play with textures!
don’t forget to submit your questions!!!!!
Cosplay for Japan T+T+Q #2 Time is your best friend and you enemy!
There is a few examples of what I mean by this.
Making a costume a year before a convention time is on your side you have time to source your fabric your props really get the details planed in your costume. But the flip side is sometimes we give are self’s too much time! We make are costume everything is almost done just some minor details and you lose weight or gin weight! It’s only natural to have your body fluctuate. But it can be frustrating! Or you give yourself too much time and you procrastinate!
Making a costume 1 week before a convention (enemy)
tailoring wax is a costumers best friend!
mark up your fabrics with seam allowance and adjustments darts and tucks!
preferably on the wrong side of the fabric but disappears in steam!
