We already did a Lockon (my boyfriend- the casual outfit), a Liu Mei (me- both the chinese dress and the outfit from the first intro), and a Louise (my sister- the casual outfit) at Ani-Magic (the same day the first episode aired =), PMX, and AnimeLA. We're also going to AX (I'm also considering doing Neena Trinity as well as Liu Mei, and possibly a flight suit for Lockon...)

I'm looking forward to seeing more 00 cosplayers =)

I just uploaded some photos in my user gallery if you want to see more pics. We should have a full-size Haro for Lockon for AX (and for Neena- if I cosplay her) and we're considering doing the flightsuit for Lockon (and possibly another one of Liu Mei's outfits...and something for my sister... =)

Yes, I'm going to do Allelujah's flight suit and s2 uniform, but probably not till otakon so i kinda have a while, but because of all the hypeand seeing the new ep i've been wanting to make it soo badly. I also need a new alle wig, my old one is ok but i feel like my base color of a bight green didn't work, i want to make it more of a grey green color also the back part thats suposed to flip up is like bleh and also get contacts so.......yea it could get pricey so the flight suit depends on if it get a job.

I have Tieria's S1 civilian clothes. I only have one picture in my gallery, and its not very good since I haven't cut the wig yet and the yellow shirt needs to be fitted better since it makes the cardigan bulk out. Alot.

But I think once I get more money I might do the S2 flight suit for Tieria. I'll have to think on it.

Well I work at JoAnns so like the big dork that I am I've already scoped out fabric and I don't think it's going to end up being all that much, as the flight suit its self isn't overly complicated and I've got stuff I can use for certain aspects of it already.

I've just got 3 new costumes as it is, one of Tieria already. I feel like I might need to back off the obsessive costume making for a bit. At least until my paycheck can stop being entirely sucked up into my addiction.

Yea but I think i'm going to use vinyl and i need stretch vinyl which stores never have, so i have to order it on the internet, and it's like 8-12$ a yard and i need about 7 yards, and i'm used to getting fabric for around 2$ so.... it feels extra pricey.

I didn't get the impression that the new flight suits (I don't know if they're flight suits, or if they're the uniforms or if they're the same thing) didn't have much shine to them. I was going to go with a bottomweight or a twill or something. Partially because, like I said, I wasn't seeing much in the way of shine, and also because I just don't think anyone wants to see me head to toe clad in 4 way stretch vinyl.

10-07-2008, 11:13 PM
lol, yea i'm doing the uniform too and there's no way i'd use vinyl, i'll probably just feel around my uber cheap fabric store and pick w/e feels and looks right, but i might have to dye some of the lighter orange darker just cuz I dought my store is going to have those two colors in the same material.

navigated
10-07-2008, 11:18 PM
Orange seems to be a rather un-trendy color right now. Which is weird, because I'd think there'd be a call for all colors of fabric. Green too, there's hardly any green fabric in my store. But custom dying isn't hard at all, I did a TON of it for my Viral costume and it was actually really rewarding, I got stuff to look just how I wanted rather than settling for whatever color the store had.

Netto_Zero
10-07-2008, 11:25 PM
Yea when i was looking for my light blue for my yakitate japan cosplay, there wasn't any light blue, or any that was actually thick enough, i guess it's just not a popular color. The store i go to i'm guess is like a, we get the stuff no one else wants and sells it to you for really cheap, and the rest of the store looks like a good will. Plus dyeing it seems like it would make the best result and i would only need maybe a yard or two dyed.

navigated
10-07-2008, 11:34 PM
Win for Yakitate. Secondhand stores is a GREAT place to get stuff, my S1 Tieria costume, except for the cardigan is all second hand store bought. Which is fantastic because the whole thing came up under 5 dollars.

As for dying, its not really labor intensive, you just have to be ready for LOTS of sitting around.

Netto_Zero
10-07-2008, 11:41 PM
Well my friend told me about a way to use the washing machine to dye stuff, I don't remember exactly how it's done but i can just ask her again , i just remember to make sure to wash out the washing machine otherwise our cloths are going to come out tinted that color.

navigated
10-08-2008, 12:04 AM
Yep, you just need to make sure your washer gets really hot. That way the color won't come out streaky, but just do a rinse cycle with nothing in it after you're done dying your stuff, that should clean it out for you. Then you can wash your dyed fabric. Without too much bleeding. Cause that'd be a bummer.

Well normally the Tieria wig is marked as Tieria, at least it was when it was being sold. This is marked as Ghost in the Shell, and that looks pretty similar to the Major's hair from the series. So I don't know if that's the correct wig in the thumbnail. But if you got in contact with the sellers hopefully that'll get cleared up for you.

The seller contacted me. She told me it was the first wig in the preview image. So if it's not.. I'm gonna get my money back.

Are you talking about the silver part on the boots? If you are, I have no idea what they are supposed to be made out of. I just painted the toe part on and the top part I made out of craft foam with a foam base at the front. Here's a picture of how they look. (http://flickr.com/photos/22513167@N04/3269132769/)

I said earlier in the thread that I was doing Alle; but due to my group, I got switched to Tieira. I've made season 1 (which I don't have any good pictures of), the season 2 CB uniform (which I am waiting for the pictures by Elemental to be posted), and I'm currently working on his dress.

I would say that do it out of the swimwear fabric...I never thought of the flightsuit as being shiny which is what most people do with Vynil. I just think of it as a stretchy fitting fabric.

While I do agree that it shouldn't be shiny, there are matte vinyls. Plus I don't think swimwear would have the same body as a vinyl. Just my opinion, of course.

Hi guys~. I'm a random lurker that needs help. D8

I'm hoping to make Regene Regetta's Innovator and episode 8 (suit) outfits for AX this year. I'm planning to get red contacts, but I'm not sure what to do about his glasses. I don't normally wear prescription glasses, so I'd rather not spend a lot of money on a pair that I'll only use for this one cosplay. Also, I don't look good in glasses/sunglasses at all, and I'm worried that it'll take away from the costume since he's a pretty serious character and I tend to just look... dorky in any eyewear. xD I could hold them in my hand or something for pictures so I'd be accurate but not have to actually wear them, but that might look silly too. ._. Any ideas as to where I could find some fairly cheap glasses for him? Also, do you have any opinions on wearing the glasses or not?

Thanks so much in advance~. : D

SailorAnime
03-13-2009, 12:30 PM
@KazeNeko: eBay usually sells glasses frames with plastic lenses in them. They're made to be the trial pairs for the optometrist's offices. That's were I got my Tieria ones.

As for whether to wear them or not, I would wear them as opposed to holding them because Regene's never seen with his glasses off (save for when Ribbons slaps them off of him).

And since the thread has been necro'd anyway, I finally got pictures of my Celestial Being uniform (http://www.cosplay.com/costume/200869/) and I finished my Tieria dress (http://www.cosplay.com/costume/203598/)! Woo, stuff!

alrighty. out of guilt for not crossplaying (and for my love of Lockon) I decided to do the S2 version of the uniform for lockon. I've only run into a few problems (it's still in the planning stage) 1. I need a picture of the back... I can't really find one. 2. for the jacket, I want it to kinda look like a motecycle jacket, so maybe something leathery?

For the back of the costume, you'll probably want to go through the episodes and screen cap it. That's how I found the back of the shirt. Just make sure to look at all of the Meisters. Some of my best references came from screen caps of Setsuna changing in the S2 first episode.

As for the material choice, if you want it to look like a motorcycle jacket, vinyl or leather is your best choice. They don't look like they move in the same way vinyl does; so for mobility, you'll probably have to use leather. Though I used a heavy cotton and I think that turned out fine.

*refuses to let the thread die* XD

But I really do need help. ^_^

My friends and I have decided, amongst many other 00 cosplays, we're going to make the season two uniforms. I don't really know what to do about the PANTS though.

I have three options really..
A) Make the pants outright. Buy the slate blue fabric and white fabric and just make a pattern. I REALLY don't want to do this, cause I suck at pants, especially putting zippers in.
B) Find a pair of the slate blue pants, cut um up and add the white (whether from a pair of white pants or just use a pattern to make the white part)
C) Which is looking like what will most likely happen, buy a pair of white pants, cut them to the shape, and dye the inside pieces. This is only difficult cause I would have to dye all of our pants at the same time to get the right color and it's hard to get it exactly how you want, even if you test the dyes beforehand.

How did you all make your pants?

Also, what do you think about this idea for the shirt::
Putting a small zipper in the front (about 6 inches, from the top of the diamond to the neck) and a small one in the back.

I really don't want to do a whole zipper down the front, cause no matter what I do you will see a little pouch under the diamond. >_<

I made my pants from scratch and sew the white parts on top. It wasn't fun and it took a long time to get them looking right, but it was worth it to me in the long run.

Really? I didn't have an issue with a pouch under the diamond. But where would the zipper be in back? If it stops while still under the coat, it should be fine.

for my pants, i had bought some white pants and then sewn blue fabric on it. i kinda just winged the pattern... but not to my supprise, that looked HORID. so i'm gonna remake them and get a pants patter and just cut out the white and blue parts sepperately.

for the jackets (inner and outer) I found THE BEST pattern that works for both. it's Butterick B5272 its like $2 and its super easy!

in other news, I wore my Lockon (S2 uniform) to school today (it was "dress up as the future day") and as I was getting out of the car, this girl rolls down her window and yells "LOCKON HAVE MY CHILD, YOU SEXY BEAST!" at first I was a little freaked out, but then i did the "finger gun" at her with an wink and she swooned and drove off. but lets see: today was a high of 64 with 80% humidity, and i as close to dieing.... no fun. and thats in SANTA MONICA (CA)! isn't AX just going to be dandy.....

I kinda feel stupid, what do you mean by people who take commisions?

SailorAnime
06-03-2009, 10:10 PM
Commissioning someone means to pay someone else to make a costume for you, but you won't find a good one for less than $100. A lot goes into making a costume, especially one as fitted as a CB uniform. Mine cost around $100 to make and that didn't include labor costs (obviously I wouldn't charge myself for my time). The ones on eBay are only so cheap because everything is mass-produced.

well, its update time.
my lockon costume was win, me wearing it, FAIL
i dont know why, but it just looked absolutely HORRID (i actually think i was in sailor anime's AX gallery.... yeah i was the retarded one with the rubber haro that i threw against a few walls...) anyway... i kinda want to be Anew cuz those jackets are so fun! idk... I also kinda want to be revive, but i think that costume may cook me from the inside... but i do want to do it >.< argh!!!
also, at AX I noticed that alot of the other 00 cosplayers (CB uniforms) had the grey on the inside of the pants instead of light blue... so which is ist? im soooo confused!
attached is a pic with me in my lockon cosplay (im the lockon on far right)

Because their pants are a grey-blue but most people aren't willing to dye their material the correct color. In all honesty, their pants are steel blue, which is a color you'd almost have to custom dye. Neither true grey nor true blue is correct.

I used a very soft baby blue...but like sailor said neither color is correct. I prefer blue to gray though, it matches better in my opinion

I'm torn between doing Tieria's S2 bridge uniform or Soma's A-Law uniform.

It's not a matter of which will be easier to make, rather I can't decided which one I want to make first. XD

*agreed* I think instead of doing Anew, I really want to be A-laws Revive. he/she/it really doesn't get anywhere near enough love. now my only problems are A) Ref pictures and B) find a way so i dont become a french fry in that thing.....

Well, my friend and I noticed there are minor differences in the uniforms based on rank and such (like the number of buttons on the sleeve cuffs).

@SailorAnime: I agree the A-Laws need more love, at least cosplay wise =P

As far as material for the uniform, I was thinking maybe a linen would work...I'm not quite sure. It might just be me, but does anyone else think that the coat top of the uniform and the skirt like part of it look seperate?

Could the skirt part be attached to the pants with, the coat hanging over the top of the pants?

This is another reason why I'm torn between Soma and Tieria, both of their uniforms have their own challenges >.<

SailorAnime
07-14-2009, 09:55 PM
I do think the skirt part is a separate piece.

For materials, I actually think wool would be the best. A linen would wrinkle way too much.

Chaotic Era

The only problem with wool is it would get way too hot, especially since I live in the desert.

Hmm....maybe a heavy cotton could work.

Hello,Hello I have not been in this thread in a while but since I just finished both CB and A-laws unifroms I could shed some light. For A-laws a used wool, it really isn't as thick as you'd think when you hear wool and wasn't bad to wear around Baltimore in mid-summer. As for the skirt- I attached it in with the pants to the waste band since it's defiantly not connected to the jacket. For the CB uniform I used twill, mostly because I custom dyed all my fabric for Alleujah and you need natural fabric for the dye to stick, I made the mistake of not making then under shirt out of stretch twill which became a problem with my arm mobility and just being generally tight everwhere. You defiantly have to use stretch on the pants but i just used it on the white part since well, i'm a guy and tight pants + stretch fabric = wayyyy too revealing.

A quick query?
I might be attempting Tieria in his flight suit, and am not terribly sure as to the fabric from which it should be made. Specifically, the purple fabric that constitutes the majority of the suit. It's rather close-fitting, so I'd assume a stretchy fabric - would spandex or vinyl do?

.. Not actually sure where this is from... (http://i917.photobucket.com/albums/ad13/not-there/1195841980545.jpg)

Also, would it look particularly peculiar if said Tieria was rather short? I believe he has a good 8-9 inches on me...

I'm planning an A-Laws Hiling cosplay and not really sure where to begin. Did you use a pattern? Any advice on construction?

Netto_Zero
08-08-2009, 12:23 AM
Well I drafted my own pattern so I wouldn't be much help with that since being a guy i gave up on finding patterns for myself that would fit right, for the jacket I just took a t-shirt made it to fit how I wanted the jacket to and then drew on it where the light green would go and where it would be divided. As for connecting it I used about ... 10 or so small hook and eyes. The front layer of the bigger side of the jacket is doubled and I sewed on the eyes to the under layer before sewing on the bias tape which I used 1/4th an inch bias. The belt is some blet like thing I got a joeanne's and the buckle is some stretch silver vinyl over foam board and then a hook glued on the back of that and and eye sewn to the belt and the other side of the belt hot glued onto the buckle. The a-laws pin is cut out of some flat plastic bottle with an exact o knife and then painted gold , and then a bobby pin was hot glued to the back of that.

I'm kinda terrible at explaining things so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

The nicest flight suits I've seen have been made out of vinyl, so I'd go with that. And height shouldn't matter as long as everything is proportioned correctly.

Very tempted to buy the costume already made....but it's just so much more satisfying to be able to say I made the costume...*sigh*

er, first time poster but long time lurker!

i'm planning to do setsuna's flight suit, but am completely stumped as how to do the different coloured panels (i.e. some parts are black, blue and white.) since you'd be sewing on a stretch material, obviously applique isn't going to be an option, so does anyone have any advice or ideas on how to do this so it doesn't look tacky? D8 am not planning to use lycra, but a cotton lycra blend instead. hopefully. ;w;

any help appreciated!

my guess is that you're going to have to make a muslim mock up first to get the flightsuit right and for that you're going to have to make your own pattern to cut the different panels...there is no easy way around sadly =\...that's what I plan on doing anyways. I was thinking about stretchy twill...because I really REALLY don't think I can muster enough courage to do it all in Vynil xD

Speaking of the flight suits, anyone has any suggestions other than lycra and stretch twill to make the flight suits out of?

Like Heimdall said, you can do a muslin mock-up. However, I strongly suggest making out of something not stretchy. Based on how the fabric lays and moves on the Meisters, I'd say they're probably a vinyl or, at least, a woven material.

I'd say vinyl. Though if you really don't want to use vinyl, a thick woven material would look nice.

Ughhhh flight suits, ok well I got midway though making one and just stoped because the shinny vinyl looked mildly shitty, was pretty hard to sew and was stumped on how to put on all the attachments. I really like how this girl made hers and especially her material also she basically outlines how to make it http://www.cosplay.com/costume/243417/ ....I would suggest against making one cuz although they look cool.....being at a convention in one is just ridiculous becuase of the heat and sweating since vinyl does not breath. Like i put mine on just to try it on and i was covered in sweat within 5 minutes while being in my house.

I've seen one or two people with rather large Haro. Kimmy is one I know off the top of my head, she had one for her Feldt costume. http://www.cosplay.com/member/25447/ They're cool because they're hallow inside and you can store stuff in them! Try asking her where she got it?

My Feldt wig was from Arda - the Ferrari is thick enough to pull back in her ponytail, and the blending makes the fibres look really natural, even though they're pink.
