View Full Version : Yuna's Costume (FFX) - Question....

01-14-2003, 10:55 PM
I was wondering how you Yuna cosplayers made the flower designs on the skirt and Obi.

Be relieved that I am actually working on a project that is not related to Yuna, but has some similar designs on the cloth (Did you use fabric paint? Embroidery?). I thought that since there are a lot of Yuna cosplayers, they could provide me with some insight on what they used to make those details on the fabric... :drunk:

I used puff-paints in a thin layer after drawing out the vines with a soft pencil first.

I'll be handpainting the designs on the commission I'm doing with acrylic mixed with fabric medium. You probably already have it, but this image is a wonderful aid to figuring out the botanical design ^_^

I wouldn't suggest embriodery. Though it might sound like a far better quality way to do it, when embriodering Yuna's obi, it tends to look almost pillow-ish. x_x However, that might not be the case for your project. It all depends on the layering of it.

I am against embroidery as well...it takes forever, and if you look at many of the FFX FMV's, it really looks like the design is fused in with the fabric. ...and it kinda reminds me of curtains ^^;;;

I used SoSoft fabric paint; it's wonderful, since you only need one coat...I added a second just for color-mixtures, though. The only downside is that you can't iron it...

I agree that the obi design appears to be woven into the fabric, but as I don't have access to industrial looms, I am doing embroidery on the skirt (Dia's making the obi for me, because I'm lazy). I'm using chain stitch for the vines and applique for the flowers.

for my skirt i used applique which was very hard ^^; and it didn't come to thin but i liked how my obi turned out, for the obi i used a fabric marker and drew the pattern on it

I was in a rush, so I used LOADS of green tempra paint that I stole from my mom's Day Care program. *grins nervously* And then I just painted lots of swirls and stuff, trying to keep as close to the pattern on the actual skirt as possible. Once that was dry, I used proper fabric paint for the flowers. It was a LOT easier with the fabric paint I got cause it came out the containter like a bottle of white glue or whatever, so I just needed to squeeze it out. :) I will redo the vines on my skirt one day, before AN2003, but only when I get the time and remember to. :)

My skirt and obi I hand painted the designs with an acryllic mix. The material my skirt was made of didn't work so well with the fabric paint so lol. There are pictures of it in my gallery and on... lotsa websites lol. People remember me as the bright and bubbly Yuna with the crazily detailed paintings XD. So I recommend painting.

Good advice, Yuna. :thumbsup:

Thanks to the rest of you, as well. I guess I'll take a trip to Joann's (or some other crafty store!) and see what I can dig up that might do. :)
