View Full Version : Material Suggestion Needed (Kingdom Hearts)

04-15-2006, 12:37 AM
Hey everyone, I am currently making an Organization XIII Kingdom Hearts costume and was wondering if anybody could give me a suggestion for a material as a black veil to cover a person's face inside the hood but also allows the person to see through. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

really stretchy polyester material... however it requires it to be stretched for you to be able to look at it so it might pull the hood in. Let me think of some other materials. I will definitely get back to you if no one else does

GAHHHHHHH I have the prefect stuff but i have no clue the name of it!!!!!*hits self* I've used it two times for my skullkid and heartless, and my friends have used it too.. You can find it in the prom section of Jo-Anns and it comes in a varity of colors. It's kinda a mix between silk and cotton in feel. It's very sheer so you have to put two layers down, but no one can see your face and you can see almost perfectly (well unless the light hits the fabric in an odd way...then everything turns the color of the fabric, but this rarely happens, and you can always turn your head). Damn it i wish i knew the name of the fabric... I'm really sorry.

paint your face black!


no I would go with the sheer fabric, orrrrrr a cotten blend of somesort... make it breathable...

In the game it's not like a black veil...the silouette is the form of the face... so thats the trouble...

actually painting your face might work...but it would look odd....hmmm

what we're doing is siloutte type hoods so you cant see the persons face but then also designing costumes specific to a person, such as Lexaeus will have his weapon with him, and also will be able to take off his hood and have the lexaeus costume on underneath while still cloaked. Tell me if you got any of that :eek:

If I'm understanding right, fabric will be pulled close to the face. The only problem with that is breathing. even with breathable fabric, it can get muggy and difficult to breath. Just keep that in mind
