Okay. I have a very ambitious project that I'm planning. I want to cosplay Kanda from D.Gray Man (http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://tn3-1.deviantart.com/fs11/300W/i/2006/181/b/3/D_Gray_man___Kanda_Yuu_by_nezumikun.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/35590460/&h=426&w=300&sz=34&hl=en&start=1&tbnid=w1h0_9grLKpAJM:&tbnh=126&tbnw=89&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dkanda%2Bd%2Bgray%2Bman%26gbv%3D2%26sv num%3D10%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26channel%3Ds%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DG) But I need to find somewhere to get that extremely complicated exorcist cross patch. Or, I need to make real good friends with someone that has one of those embroidering sewing machines that can make any image on a flash drive into a patch.

Any ideas? Help me....

Those look like a bitch to embroder, lol, check Ebay, they might be selling some stuff there. If everything fails, find good image of it - and do an iron on.
I did that for my Trinity Blood patch and it actually turned up pretty good.

Here's a good image of it. ^_^ Good luck! (PS You can also zoom in nicely on the image if you use the Windows picture/fax viewer)

There aren't any embroidered patches available yet for sale mass market -- only metal spikes of doom and death.

I'll be doing an iron-on for my own patch... they make transfers for black materials, so it should come out nicely.

Here's a version of the manga cross if you want to go that route:

I used a cleaned-up scan of the manga cross and ironed it onto a silver satin remnant, which I then cut out and sewed to my coat, trimmed off all the extra, and used a fabric marker to touch up any silver showing outside the black applique thread. You can see a pretty good view of how mine turned out here (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=706422). It wasn't too hard, and the result doesn't look necessarily like metal or like fabric, and it was dirt cheap. :D

Thanks you guys!

You've given me some great ideas. The iron on idea might work, though I'm a little anal retentive...BTW, nice Rabi, HanyaanFaery. I don't even wanna know how much mousse and hairspray you had to use on your hair for that...

Hmm. I think that I might be able to pull it off if I try really hard. Though, I wonder if I should do Kanda, or if I'm better suited for Komui. Dunno. Gah! Life is too short for all the costumes I want to make.

Thanks for all your suggestions! :japan:

you could use an iron on transfer if the embrodery idea fails
