I've decided I am going to cosplay Kyle (from South Park). it will be my first.

I should be able to get my hands on some green pants with one trip to Hot Topic (or whatever other store might carry them), and I could alter a jacket without too much hastle. and if sewing it is any of an issue, I have a friend who has agreed to help with any sewing concerning my cosplay.

when it comes to making clothing / accessories from scratch, we could use a little how-to, or some sort of help or tips.

I intend to attempt sewing Kyle's hat myself, and I have next to no experience in sewing. so any tips / help / how-to's would be greatly appreciated. also, another lovely friend of mine has happily agreed to cosplay with me as Kenny. her costume won't require too much work other than searching the store racks. however we could use a little help on how to securely sew fur around the rim of the hood. if anything we can get a jacket at Good Will & remove the fur from it's hood to sew onto the orange one we buy. however the largest concern at this point is Kyle's hat.

but again, I have next to no sewing experience, & hers is borderline-beginner-skill.

Kyle's hat shouldn't be too hard. Cut yourself out a circle, which will be the top of the hat. Then cut a long strip and sew it around the edge of the circle, forming the sides of the hat. It'll probably be best to have it longer than you need and then cut/adjust it for the front/back. Then you just have to attach the flaps and the darker bit at the front.

ahh, thank you. for some reason I was expecting it to be difficult, but that doesn't sound too hard. thank you! I'll try that. (:

For the fur, I've had to fasten fur to a jacket in the past, a pet accident with the fault on my dog who loves to chew furry anything ^^"
What I did was first hot glue the fur collar onto the collar of the jacket I was using, just to secure it into place. Then, I just used some basic stitching to secure the fur on the jacket even better. I suggest however that you use a thicker thread for this part- and a sewing machine if you can find one. If not though, just try doing it free hand with a thicker string and going over it several times!
I hope this helps! :D
