Okay, so I'm planing a Rapidash costume for my first true cosply. Now it's gona be a simple cowgirl like design. With khaki shorts with a tank top of tan colored plaid shirt. For a cowgirl-ish feel. But the flames will be a problem. Does any body have any advice with constucting the flames for the tail and around the feet are wrist? Like what type of fabric to use? And any more helpfull hints/ideas. My first sewing experiance XD I understand how to make the ears.... but not so much the horn -_- *sighs* Any help will be greatfull:bigtu: Oh and does anybody know where I can get a flame like wavey wig?

I just added one of my silly moltres photos. I wasn't planning to put any up, but I put one up for you to see what I did for my tail. I layered red, orange, and yellow fabrics. All different textures, because I liked the added effect. But i dued mostly shiny satin-like ones. For extra depth I did two layers of each color, so it was red-orange-yellow-red-orange-yellow. And for a little volume, I pleated the finished layers.

Hope this gives you some inspiration!
you can also look on cosplay.com under any other fire pokemon you can think of for ideas.
