View Full Version : Very Simple Soul Eater Question...

09-24-2008, 12:29 PM
I'm going to start on my group's Soul Eater costumes soon, and I have one very simple question. It's something that was brught to my attention recently and I just wanted to know some other opinions before I start;

Patty Thompson: Puffy shorts, or pants with the legs pulled way up? Someone proposed the idea to me that Patty's "shorts" may actually be pants just like Liz's, she just pulls them up so they are shorter. Which would make sense, after all....I'm sure Kid would have given them identical outfits. My original plan was to make the shorts somewhat longer and wider than they needed to be and add an elastic band at the bottom so Cheshire (my friend who's cosplaying Patty) could just position them so they're all puffy, but now the pants thing. Would it look better or be more accurate to do it one way over another?

Well, I would probably make them short to begin with so that they don't accidentally wind up looking absolutely wrong, and then all your work goes to waste. <3

Remember, in Cosplay, it always needs to look good from the outside, so just go ahead and really just "sew what you see".

yeah, altering a shorts pattern would most likely be a lot easier than doing all of those changes to a pair of pants, which might have a more difficult time acheiving the nice puffy look that Patty's bottoms have =]
