View Full Version : Meyrin Hawke Help! [Gundam SEED Desinty]

Hello all and thanks a lot for looking at my thread! ^^

I'm hoping to do a Meyrin cosplay, but I'm not sure where to begin with the main part of her outfit, which is the rather long shirt (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v201/Whispered.Hope/Other%204/?action=view&current=Front6.jpg). Are there any patterns I can use, as well as for the skirt?

As well, does anyone have any tips for how to make her hat (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v201/Whispered.Hope/Other%204/SideLeft1.jpg)?

Thanks for any who can help!

What I did for my Cagalli commander uniform was modify a pattern for a suit jacket kind of ensemble. I would suggest finding one that has a similar shape to Meyrin's ZAFT uniform and possibly extending it so that it is long enough. The skirt would just be a simple skirt and very easy to make, and I'm sure you could find a simple pattern with a suit jacket.

Hopefully that'll give you a couple of ideas to get you started -- unfortunately I don't have any advice for the hat, except maybe you can take some inspiration from those paper Krispy Kreme hats or something, and see if you can construct one out of cloth...? ^^; Sorry, don't have many ideas for that one.

Good luck! ^^

Ah, suit jacket...thanks! I'll look for that when I go shopping ^^ Hee, that's all right that you can't help with the hat...maybe I should bring that question to the accessories forum ^^

But thanks for the luck, and yay for more Athrun obessors. I totally understand how he had like five women pining over him in Destiny xD
