Hi Die-chan! I acctually found a corset for my costume on ebay yesterday, it's far from perfect but it will do ^-^. I am going to need to make my own for my myaku costume for otakon this year tho. I have a basic dea for that. any pointers?

Have you made a corset before? I get all my corsetry supplies from Farthingales, at http://www.farthingales.on.ca/ (prices are quoted in Canadian dollars). Be very sure to make a muslin before you cut into your vinyl or other fabric, as you really want it to fit you properly. If you're not a guy and you're going for the DEG look, you should avoid anything that will pull your waist in too tightly and make it more obvious that you are not a guy - so what you'll end up with will be less a corset (which would change your shape) than a bodice.

for myaku, if you go to joannes or fabric stores u can find pink PVC. i highyl suggest you try to follow teh pattern of the corest you got for TSumi but alter it. i used metal boning, my myaku corset is far from perfect but i made a new one.*never had time to re-wear it* Myaku was my first costume ( i made it when i was 14 *EE)

anyways..i really suggest u make it so it zips up or ties up the back. i made the mistake of making everything in the FRONT..
for tubes if u can't find them *wink wink* (secret: look in toy stores) ^^b (ahem) you might have to "drain" some of them :o
