perfect nee?

also which ver are you trying to do? her princess ver, ending vr... or when she took off her princess rank?

@niyoh
you know weight doesnt really matter wen you cosplay... some prgnant women even cosplay CC and I took pics of her because she didnt let he pregnancy get in the way of cosplaying CC

plus the jumpsuit is rather cute and comfy and loose that I doubt there will be anyone complainin about it

Thank you, I looked them over, and I think I'm in agreement, the Moss Green looks much better for C.C

By the way, has anyone ever attempted her..err..well, I guess Lolita-esque outfit, with her hair in the pigtails? I think it's cute, but the hair seems a little too ambitious for me right now.

@Sakurai_Atsushi, I haven't tried it before, but I don't think the hair is going to be too ambitious. You'll just need a short wig for the base and two clip ons. =3 A good example would be something like this, http://cgi.ebay.com/2-clip-on-Pink-PONYTAILS-wig-RARE-new-cosplay-costume_W0QQitemZ400042187950QQihZ027QQcategoryZ60 188QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem




Lol, same here! xD I hate closing my eyes as well. It just comes out... wrong. I do have to agree, the paper cranes are sorta overused, but I like them. ^__^ Although, I'm horrible at Origami. xD I'd be lucky and happy if I could just make one.

Oh! You have to tell me how the key comes out when you're done! I'm sure it'll be amazing looking! It'll be first time ever making a prop if I get around to doing it. xP Ah, the trying hard to make Nunnally look sexy outfit! lol, I love that. xD I'm still in shock they actually put Nunnally in that. It's so.. UnNunnally. ( I still like it though xD ) But, the last episode is so epic that how can you not do that oufit? x3 That's so cool that you are doing it! I'm so looking forward to seeing it.

Gahh! D= Her shoes are the only thing I dislike about her R2 outfit. But, yay! I can't wait to see it! You'd make an adorable Nunnally. ^__^ (I just saw your Sakura photo, the wig is awesome! *_* You'll also be an awesome Sakura too. )

Lol! xD Finding the right wig for Nunnally is difficult. I recently bought the Cher 951 from Cosworx in Strawberry blonde.The wig is gorgeous, I just wished I picked out a different color. xP

GASP Me too!!! I couldnt make a paper crane after 3 tries or smt :O we have a lot in common XD

ahaha... I was wondering If I should make it light or heavy... if light I can make the button pushable and if I make it heavy I'm gunna have to make an illusion XD I don't think it's hard though... I'm not bragging I think I'm better off making props rather than the cosplays itself, because I took 3D design in 6th grade XD I'm taking them again next year when I'm a freshman... or should I take fashion designing or Japanese language? ugh soo many otakunized subjects in high school XD... so if a mere 8th grader could do it you could too!!! I'd gladly help ya if ya want... also I'ma do Nunnally's choker next week... I'm too tired lol XD

Hehhhhh? the red outfit isn't like Nunnally? IMO I think it is though the sexyness isn't appealling XD... I mean there is stll the shy factor given by how to closes her arms and being chained like that lol... also oif I do that ver of her I could be paired up with an Emperor Lelouch... GASP I could even reenact it with him XD

I like the shoes... they look so CLAMPefied lol I think it was meant for Sakura XD and speaking of Sakura thanks for the compliments!!!

I saw some wigs at amphigory... here:

als this one is almost perfect :D http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_natalie_xxl.html

but I just dont... know how to order from m eheh...hehehe

I wish KIDS-Charissa makes them Nunnally wigs again uwaaa... or maybe it's because there aren't many people cosplaying Nunnally that they find it profitless to sell? T^T

Personally, I don't recommend Amphigory. They are horrible when it comes to customer service and shipping (let alone their quality is almost less then Hong Kong wigs). Last time I ordered a wig from them there were numerous things wrong with it. One, it took 29 days to be shipped out, which is freakin' rediculous considering that they are in the States. Secondly, I only got one email from them with no updates at all with where my wig was. And when I received my wig, it had a label of "silver" on the tag, but it was purely white. I was freakin' pissed and won't ever order from them again.

konataFTW:

I meant whether making her costume vs. being able to AFFORD the wig. With two costumes at once, $35 plus $10 shipping is a bit 'spensive for my budget. I might be able to buy the wig, if I spend half an hour crying crocodile tears to my dad. Then the suit (I wanted to cosplay her as the princess), just looks so COMPLICATED. And I refuse to buy it. I make all my costumes. Arg! Why does having a life have to be so expensive?!?!?!

But yeah, it IS the perfect wig

Sakurai_Atsushi
04-11-2009, 02:31 PM
The wig in that link is gorgeous. I was thinking of going through them for the wig for my OC, but I'm wondering if it would be cheaper to go with a short wig and buy the three seperate extensions for that character, or to just buy the wig.

konataFTW
04-11-2009, 04:35 PM
eeeeehhh? Amphigory is that bad? >_<

how about cosworx then? how do you buy from them?

@Ukara07
uwah... how much can you afford? I picked it cuz you said sumthing about diffculty so there the wig is set :D but here ^.^

and just style them for a bit...

uhm... I think her princess outfit is the easiest of them all... http://code-geass.bandai-ent.com/characters/images/cornelia_COMP.gif

so for the top/jacket or whatev, use a snowwhite-like dress pattern or anything with the puffy sleeves..., then redraw the bottom part into how her jacketis supposed to end... (uhm... pattern is boutt 10$, fabric will be about 2 yards for me and I am 29-27-30 4"10, 2 yards of vinyl is about 15$?)

then for the tight pants... personally I would buy cheap leotard at some dance stores but you could reuse the fabric used on the top to make em urself... (leotard=5$, fabric 0$ :D)

and then shoes, boot ccovers? or modified thrift store heels :D same thing for her gloves

cape= less than 5 bucks depending on how long you need it.. trust me it'll be cheap (most of my cosplays consists of capes XD) then to style it will be easy!

and hope I helped with the budget and all lol XD

how about cosworx then? how do you buy from them?



I use Cosworxs the most of any wig store. I highly recommend them. Generally shipping is less then two weeks (almost sometimes 2-3 days). Prices are a bit higher, but their wig quality and colors are amazing.

Sakurai_Atsushi
04-11-2009, 05:17 PM
Seconded. Cosworx wigs are some of the best. I've almost singularly gone through them for every wig I have [almost]

I plan to get some more very soon. =D

*bows down repeatedly* konataFTW you are amazing. You have just made my life so much easier, and now my mom won't flip when she sees how much my Joann's gift card is going to dwindle. The costume, in retrospect, now looks much easier.

Not to ask too many questions (better safe than sorry right?) but do you know how good the quality is of those wigs? Cuz once I bought this black wig off ebay and in the pic it looked nice an full. But when I got it in the mail, it was a thin, horribly cut piece of crap.

I rue the day I traded my job for an education (I'm kidding)

konataFTW
04-12-2009, 03:20 AM
@Ukara07
NP^^, I know right? once you break down the cosplays into pieces you'd figure out how easy it'll be... and how cheap it'll be *snickers*

The first link I gave you... the seller, Wig Fashion is where my brother bought his wig... and I wanna rip him apart because it was GORGEOUS it seemed waaaaay better than the picture T^T and here are more witnesses: http://myworld.ebay.com/wigfashion/

the second one... well I'm not quite sure but here are the feedbacks: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&ftab=AllFeedback&userid=zhenna0036&iid=-1&de=off&items=25&page=3

and sorry about yur crappy wig?

i have to go in favor for amphigory *skips in*

i've used them several times and my wigs (if in stock - they do seem to be out a stock a lot) came in and were excellent quality - more so than the hong kong type.

i actually JUST bought a wig from wig fashion and i have to say the quality looked better in the picture *points to wig in icon* it was very coarse and had almost no hair on the top so you can see the netting a big. i was very dissapointed

Haha, you're right, we do have a lot in common. xD

I'd be cool if you made it light, a pushable button would be nice!
Oh, you're not bragging at all! I think it's great you know how to make props really well! It's amazing you took 3D design in 6th grade though! My middle school (or is it junior high?) didn't even offer an art program. xD Both Fashion Design and Japanese sound like great classes, it's too hard to choose. I'd probably pick Japanese though because I already took a Fashion class in Highschool and didn't enjoy it too much. xP There were more students than sewing machines and I didn't learn much.(Or sewed much. xD ) Ah, you're so sweet! Thank you so much! I would love the help! ::huggles::

That has to be it! I didn't even notice that until you mentioned it, it's nice they kept some modesty(innocence?) in it. Ah! It would be awesome to be paired up with a emperor Lelouch! A reenactment would be such a great photoshoot! <3

Lol, most of Code Geass is CLAMPified. xD When I first saw Zero, all I thought of is Kamui from X/1999. It has to be his cape. You don't need to thank me, you really do look like a great Sakura and the wig was awesome! =) You even did the antennas really well! <3

Those wigs really do look good, even the color of them are great! But, I'm gonna try to salvage the wig I have. Just have to buy some extensions of a slightly lighter color and just go for it! xD Need the extra volume anyway for those two giant ringlets she has.

I know, I wished they still made Nunnally wigs too! D= That has to be the reason why they stopped making it. If I was the seller, I'd also stop selling the wig if it wasn't making any profit. Ebay has waayyy too many selling fees for me.

how about cosworx then? how do you buy from them?

Also, I do have second Coswox! The quality of the wigs and shipping are really good. =3 Are you still having trouble ordering from them?

kyahahaha XD Kamui I didn't think so... I saw Fai in Lelouch.. lol weird o_O but like how he talks and stuff lol :bigtu:

my ahoges kinda deflated so added more hairspray... oh and got2b gel is so hard to use when making the humpy things... it made my fingers all slipppery? lol XD

yeah... I don't know how to buy from Cosworx T^T I have a 20-sumthin dollars giftcard cuz won in ALA masquerade XD I just dunnohow T_T

I'll prolly style my own nunnally wig with the Ashley color 14 or smt -_- can't decide

also how do you calculate shipping if you buy from cosworx? :O

Sakurai_Atsushi
04-14-2009, 08:52 PM
Cosworx, you just add the wig in the color you want to your cart, and if you sign up they'll have your address, so when you go to checkout [you don't have to, acting like you're checking out is how alot of people figure the full price w/shipping] it will give you the subtotal, and then the total with the shipping. [I think where I live, ground shipping is like...4.95$]

When you check out, there should be a place for coupon or giftcards so you just input the code on the card then.

Finished sewing Lelouch's vest/jacket and now I can start adding all the gold accents. Sewing bias tape is such a pain and Lelouch's vest is completely outlined with it. Ugh!
Speaking of wigs, I am going to purchase KIDS-Charissa's Lelouch and C.C wig soon. Since I've been hearing good things about them and so on. Although I am very nit picky about base wig caps so I am hoping they are similar to cosplaywigs or cosworx.

I usually just use a curling iron and loosely curl them.

My kanekalon and eleora wigs have always been able to take it well [even though you're not supposed to]

But I've seen a few wigs now, made of a new synthetic fiber, that is able to with stand high heat =D

look into it.

Curling irons will fry wigs... I wouldn't recommend this method at all to anyone >_>

04-17-2009, 03:31 PM
You could always just do what I do when I need to curl/wave a wig. :O

What I usually do is put the wig fibers into plastic curlers, pin the curlers to the wig head with T-pins, then go over the wig with a fabric steamer. After you've steamed the fibers, let them cool down and then spray them down with hairspray. Let it sit overnight, then unpin the curlers and take the curlers out of the hair; you should have some nice, bouncy curls in your wig, then. Depending on how curly the wig needs to be, you may have to do this quite a few times. It's how I styled the bangs on my Euphemia wig (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1881120/), as well as the ends where it needed some curl.

Quoted for laziness. XD; But it works like a charm every time.

Sakurai_Atsushi
04-17-2009, 04:01 PM
Hence why I said you're not supposed to. >>; Duh.

I just said I have, and mine are fine, and they came out perfect, with no damage.

Also, I said they've come out with a heat resistant wig fiber.

I was saying look into the heat resistant wig fiber.

nowhere in my post did I say: "Please take a curling iron to your wig, as it's cool and will make your wig look awesome, even though it may fry it. "

Please read more carefully.

Anyhow.

Moving on.

lol, taking Japanese sounds like fun, I hope you get that class. I took a foreign language class once and it turned out to be so much fun. x3 Wish I could back and take it again.

That's weird, Lloyd always reminded of Fai. xD That's probably why I like Lloyd so much.

Do you like working with wigs? You seem really good at it! =3

Ashley in 14 would be so pretty! 14 looks like the perfect color for Nunnally too!^__^ I say go for it! I actaully plan on getting extensions in that color if they ever decide to make in 14. xD And to order from Cosworx, just do what Sakurai_Atsushi said.

yeah, 14 is the closest I could get and Ashley seems good and easy to work with... I didn't wanna go for something so heavy because I don't want my wig cap showing lol XD I'll be ordering from cosworx at the same time I order a perfect wig for Len -___- Clover I hear /shot

You're Nunnally cosplay is coming out great so far konataFTW! ^__^ Can't wait to see it when it's finished. And If you want to see the box art, here it is: http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/70869 =3

I'm so happy that Rolo finally gets some love. xD There's hardly any artwork of him that I know of.

oh shi~

yes Rolo is amazing in the pic thanks Mogwai~!

Suzaku loooks a looooooooot like Syaoran in this pic XD

and since Suzaku(my onii-sama's sig cosplays xD) is in the art maybe I should make the cosplay next year for SFCBF too XD (Nunnally looks a lil like Emeraude... omg CLAMP rocks XD)

I've decided to make those outfits for my group. I'm going to kill myself having to make so many detailed outfits but it'll look cool anyways. I may make up a similar outfit for me to go as Kallen to match them all.

So I'm looking to cosplay as Massacre!Euphemia for Otakon this year. Not quite sure how to go about it (should I make the complete dress, then destroy it?), but I wanna do this. I'll probably have to draft a pattern since I'm plus size, too.

Any advice would be appreciated since I'm a little over my head.

I agree! He looks REALLY like Syaoran (maybe that's why i like this art so much XD?)

Anyway... CLAMP is not so creative Oo The art looks like the art from TRC, the Nunnally kimono looks like one which Sakura wears on some art, AND the CC and Lelouch pose looks like one on the art from TRC TOO =_____=

But whatever! XD CLAMP rules :P

I'm waiting for some costumes from the new art :D

Hi there~! I'm just going to throw in my 2 cents ok? =) I'd suggest making the pattern and make it ripped and trashed already because if you tear it up well... it seems you're wasting your efforts/fabric :P and fabric... fabric T_T [gah it reminds me I need more white silk for my frills T_T]

although, I'm not very sure how the rips look like so how about throwing in some refs with ya dear? ^.^

DreaM HunteR

lolz XD it looks like the Sakura kimonos outfit they wore ahaha... and the CC/Lelouch pose looks a lil like uhmmm TRC vol 1 pose? lol but they're so cool XD

haha instead of Emeraude I was about to say Sakura then looked at the pic (oh yes... why) but there is this slight turn to Emeraude XD (Bwahaha I'm so stupid I thought Rolo looked like a seducing CLAMP character I just don't know the name... Yuuko? errr? lol)

Mogwai
04-28-2009, 08:43 PM
Kyaa, he does look like Syaoran in that picture. xD I thought he looked familar. That'd be so cool to that cosplay done. In fact, it would awesome to see someone cosplay any of them. They are all so pretty. *_* I especially love Nunnally's kimono (of course. xP ), but there's no way I would want to tackle that type of project. Too hard! xD

I was about to say Nunnally looked a little bit like Kotori, but you're right, she resembles Emeraude much more!

depend on which C.C. cos you are waring. If the outfit is from anime I suggest go with the neon green one, more accurate. If the outfit is from the art book, go with the moss green wig. ^^ just my personal suggestion ^^~

So I switched from cosplaying Cornelia to cosplaying Kallen. Does anyone have suggestions as to her wig? Because her hair is flipped in the back, and long in the front (face frame bangs). If I buy the wig with the bangs, it isn't styled properly. Styled right and there are no bangs.

And I don't dare style it myself. I'm terrified, after my Deidara and Misa fiasco's. I have black hair, which is roughly the right length. Maybe a washable color dye?

I dunno, I'm open to suggestions.

vinyl is the best for the costume? how bout pleather? (i think it's bit shiny but i've got a friend who use this to make it~ XD)

as for the wig, i've decided to use this.. green wig (http://item.taobao.com/auction/item_detail-0db1-a3c702c2f8b604aa1ff0d74f5caaf045.jhtml?cm_cat=0&pm1=2) i think it's quite accurate though not as bright as the anime version (i'm 1/2 thinking wanting the bright green and another 1/2 i don wan it..

i'm not sure which pleather she used.. so to make it fit and fit nicely without having to see your.. 'extra lumps' anywhere vinyl is a good fabric? or should i stick to PVC or prolly pleather of that one kind that you think would work?

or scratched as in, you can destroy it with only nails? (as in drawing lines all over the fabrics with nails and leave the lines.. XD)

so among all fabrics, i would choose the least shiny ones,.. that would be..?

btw does Nunnally have a ribbon or something on her hair to keep the braids?

I thought 14 was okay, but it's always better to buy a shade lighter than a shade darker.
Learned that the hard way. xP The wig looks great by the way! Can't wait to see it when it's finished! I'm still working on mine. xD

About her braids,

It doesn't look like she has anything keeping them in.

@khislove12,
You're gonna need a petticoat if you want to give a dress poof. =3 There are few options depending on how poofy you want the dress to be. If you want it to be really poofy, then a hoop skirt would be good. Although, since I've never worn one, I don't know if or think it'll be too comfortable.

And then there's the A-line petticoat, which isn't all that poofy as the hoop skirt, but comfortable enough. I recently bought this one,

so i was thinking of making the ashford girls school uniform and was wondering what the best way to make the blazer is, i was thinking using 3 front panels and a back is this a good idea or did anybody else do it differently?

Well, what I did, was took a took a pattern for the Sizes, and cut out the peices, For the back, I cut it into 3 parts, and then had extra fabric, so, I measured and made an Extra panel to sew into the middile of the back part and sew them all together.
for the front I suggest starting it as a blazer, and doing almost what you do in the back for the panel.
lol You might wanna sew it in completely on one side though, would make it more like the animes, and more accurate.
(understand whats she's saying but understands she's confusing.)

Searched the thread...*don't have time to go through all the post* and I didn't come up with anything for C.C and her R2 Black and Maroon outfit.
I am hoping you can help me figure out a good pattern, and material to use for C.C (http://www.more-elegant.de/cosplay/_cc1.jpg) and the outfit.

Ufafaaa!! I have begun creating Lelouch's emperor outfit of doom-!!!

3 yards of white cotton for the robe, and I just foudn the perfect boots and spray painted them white~ NOTE ABOUT BOOTS- when spraying them make sure to put down drop cloth to protect your parents 10024900008325009 dollar stone pavement -___-; Also I need to coat them in somethign to keep the paint from cracking, the zipper got crusted with paint and when I unzipped it all the paint around it cracked!! o_o" I coated one in a white pigmented sealer so here's hoping that will work.

Just about to order some gold PVC from ebay for all the fancy ass designs that are going to have me appliquéing till the world ends n_n So I was thinking altering a pattern for a robe, like a simple japanese juban robe and making it so the lapels have a wide sweeping curve. Any other good ideas?

Got ambitious today and flew through Shirley's green and white artbook dress. :) I just have to put the green trim around the jacket and on the sleeves and then it's done.

Does anyone have a clearer picture of the necklace she wears with the outfit though? It looks sorta like an X or a butterfly and I can't tell. what it actually is.

I am going tomorrow ^ ^ My gf's mom suggested Satin and I cringed XD It would be too shinny and hard to work with. Another one of my friends who is a sewing goddess suggested medium-weight suiting with a tight weave...whatever that is XD it sounds expensive. I am thinking a nice cotton that drapes well would work, but I am no fabric expert, that's for sure XD

HIya^^
When I made my C.C r2 outfit I used a simplicity chinese dress pattern and just altered it a little, since there was only one slit in the dress, I simply added three more. Sorry but I dont know the number just go in a Jo-anns fabrics and ask for a simplicity chinese dress pattern and they can help u. Also for fabric, your gonna have to go in the store and look for the fabric u like best and see how it feels. Hope that helps:)

I was just wondering if anyone has tips on how to make Euphemia's white dress- the artbook version one, where she's holding the black lily, and CC has a matching black dress.....

My friend is basically making the dress for me- but she doesn't know how to make dresses, and so she's doing it in pieces...I already have the skirt.
But, when she did that for my Witch Hunter Robin costume, idk, the way the two pieces, top and skirt, fell on my stomach, I think I looked huggggeee, and the Robin thing can be easily modified, but I think that the Euphemia one has to be made perfectly, because well...it's white, everyone looks fatter in white than in black.

I just need some hard core tips and advice on how to make that dress, so I can relay it to her, and hopefully so I can help to make some of it too. It's like my ultimate dream cosplay, a dress like that, I want to feel good wearing it and know it looks amazing(like the peeps on here who have made it do). But because she has no experience with dresses, I really need advice on how to make the outfit.

Anyone know a good pattern for lelouch's school uni? his jacket is confusing me

I used a See & Sew pattern - B4959. (Yay for $2 patterns!) I modified the length of it, and depending on the length of your neck you might have to modify it there too. ^__^ (For the front: I made a separate front panel and attached it to the jacket with velcro on the collar and snaps on the side. )

Hope this helps! I was utterly confused by the jacket at first too. ^^;

06-24-2009, 06:19 PM
For the C.C Cosplay I found the perfect pattern today. Only two slits, a slightly higher collar, and front zipper, and the details, and that is all that needs to be fixed for this pattern. It's patter 4190 by Simplicity. I also am going with a very nice jersey knit that my grandmother had a GIANT bolt of laying around her house. (She saved me so much money O_O)

I also took a look at the medium-weight suiting that my friend suggested, it was on sale for 60% off, but I decided free fabric would save me by far more money. However the medium-weight suiting would also be perfect for this outfit, just to let anyone else who may cosplay this outfit know ^ ^

I am starting this project please cheer me on!. I plan on documenting my adventure with this outfit to help other out in the future ^ ^

Oh my gosh, that pattern looks perfect! I'm making Lelouch for a friend of mine. I was trying to pattern it myself and.. it just was not working out. Also making C.C.'s r2 outfit for myself, and Nunnally for my sister. Whee~

Awesome Idea! :bigtu: Thanks for the help. I was just wondering what pattern to use/modify for the Ashford uniforms :)

I'm working on a Zero R2 outfit and would like any critiques or advice on how the practice version looks so far. Some adjustments will be made before cutting the actual fabric, but it shouldn't be a problem with how far the jacket is now. This is definitely the most detailed costume I've done so far, but proud of my progress. (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2109015/)

Unfortunately :bigcry: I wont be able to finish the helmet in time for AnimeVegas, which just gives me time to finish for Saboten-Con. I'll be posting up a tutorial when the helmet is actually in progress.
I'll be working on CG costumes for my kids as well: Nunnally & Suzaku in their Ashford uniforms.

Here's a reference: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v62/MEIMI/lc-kimura-tiaose-.jpg

Does anyone have advice on which fabric I should use? I was thinking probably white vinyl for the white skirt strips. But I'm not sure what to use to for the black dress.

Any ideas?

Houkiboshi-chan: I'm planning that too, but I'm not really sure where to start xP Are you making the dress as two parts (like in the pic)? Do you have an idea of how to keep the jewels on the costume?

Mikka☆
07-07-2009, 01:32 AM
@ kannazuki- Mmmm, well I'm thinking I make juss a regular dress that has a slit in the front. Then the shoulder and waist belt that has the white skirt will be detachable. For the jewels, i'm gonna buy beads and sew them on. But if you're referring to the red jewels then I might either make them out of foam and decorate 'em or have a friend make them out of....what was it called? Plastic Resin? And then glue them on.
The only problem is trying to figure out what material & pattern to use! D: What fabric are you using? I have some ideas for the pattern, but I wanna browse around some more. xD

For mine I just altered a pattern for a bath robe. I removed the sleeves from the pattern, adjusted it to be form-fitting, and changed the collar to match the proportions on the references. It might be simpler and cheaper than getting a pattern for a japanese robe.

kannazuki
07-08-2009, 02:24 AM
Houkiboshi-chan: I have no idea for the pattern either. Because it starts as a form-fitting dress, then becomes an almost ballgown-esque dress. Would the red jewels hold with glue? I would hate for them to fall off >.< As for the fabric, I'm still looking. Are you using the blue/green color in your reference picture? Or the black version from the official art?

Alatar
07-08-2009, 06:52 AM
Would the red jewels hold with glue? I would hate for them to fall off >.<

Yeah they will. Get a glue called E6000. They sell it at places like JoAnne's, Hobby Lobby, etc. Even when it dries it will be rubbery and bend without cracking, which makes it really useful for this sort of thing. I've never seen how well it adheres to storebought gems, but I used it for all my resin cast gems and so far it has worked perfectly.

Mikka☆
07-08-2009, 02:41 PM
@ kannazuki- I looked up some cosplayers on cure and some did her outfit like a form fitting dress that has a slit up the middle. So I don't think it's supposed to be full like a gown. Oh, if ur talking about the big red eye jewels on the outfit, it'd be best if you glue gun them. That always works~ ^^ Or if you're gonna do it in foam or something, you could always use foam glue or watever works best with the material u are gonna use.
As for the fabric....I think I'm going to get a REAL dark emerald green. It'll look black in the shade but a dark green in the light. ^^

kannazuki
07-08-2009, 07:54 PM
@Alatar: Oh, thanks! I'll look for that on my next trip to the fabric store.


@Houkiboshi-chan: Oh, now that I looked closely at the official sketches, it was the white strips that billowed out and made it look like the dress was a ballgown ^^; No wonder why others did it that way! I think I'll go with black, but I'd like to see how your dark green ver. turns out! Do you have any ideas for a pattern?

Mikka☆
07-08-2009, 07:59 PM
@ kannazuki- Oh there are sketches? Do you have a link? =OO! Yeah, I was thinking of black.....but I think a daaarrkk green will probably fit. xD
Uhhmmmmm.....not at the moment. I'm still searching, I'll post some if I find any. But I was thinking like...a strapless prom dress and altering that. ^^

@Crystalike: That's the version I'm going off of. I really want to find a wig that shade of green. It's so pretty!

I dunno which one I'll be wearing though. xD But i wanna wear it for AX too. Since it's SUCH an extensive and pretty outfit! xD w00! If you go to AX, we can both take pics 2gether and rock our outfits! w00! =D

Next year, I definitely want to make it to AX! It looked like so much fun~ T^T We'd make an awesome pair! (The REAL ruling forces of Brittania! ^w^ )

The dress IS two parts, isn't it? I wonder how that works... I have the feeling that the white strips are gonna cause me grief Dx

Lulu's! xD Hopefully a there'll be some Suzakus too! =D

UGH. Yeah. I'm gonna make the arm belt thing and the waist belt/skirt detachable. What's reeallly stressing me out is how I'm gonna make the dress. It's like two different colors. xD Oh Clamp, why must you have such pretty but extensive designs?!

kannazuki
07-10-2009, 12:05 PM
@Houkiboshi-chan: I wanna get started soon, too, but it's one of those costumes that you have to plan and look at very carefully, to make sure you don't overlook something BIG. My group is actually planning to go as the empire gang xD I hope they have theirs done in time, though o___o

I wish there was more art for it, like front and back view in color. Hmmm what do you think about a semi-stretchy fabric for the dress/arm warmers?? I'm not a fabric expert, but I don't really like the idea of using a stiff fabric for this kind of dress. The thing that wraps around the arms is actually attached to the dress, I think.

Mikka☆
07-10-2009, 01:29 PM
@ kannazuki- OMG! I can't wait! This'll be my first like EXTENSIVE outfit. xD o0o0o! Can't wait to see your group! I know a few people who do Emperor Lulu, so hopefully they'll do it with me! OH! and I heard that there'll be a KOZ Suzaku next year! :3
SERSIOUSLY! I'm still kinda peeved that they didn't put her outfit in the anime. D: What imma do is make that little section on the front black. And probably the sleeves? Then the rest black. Ahh, I know what kind of material I want to use for the sleeves, but I'm not the fabric expert either! D: Mmmm, if I had to describe it, it would be like...comfortable like cotton, but stretched enough and wasn't sheer. I'm planning to go to library and look up the different fabrics. xD So i'll let you know what I find. xD Wait and which thing? U mean the armwarmers? or the belt thing? xD

07-11-2009, 09:03 PM
@Houkiboshi-chan: Same for me x__x Ohhh the empire is sure to be big next year!! I predict beautiful photos~~! ^-^ I know what you mean! Although they'd probably tweak her design, like they did with Lulu. I mean, he can't rule Brittania with a huge hat on (one of the artbook pics)!! But, yeah, they should've animated that version of C.C. >.< I have suiting fabric that would be perfect for the arm warmers...if it wasn't white. The belt-ish thing that goes around the arms. Was that the part you were going to make detachable? I might just connect it to the dress. I'm still thinking of a way to attach the white belt to the dress. Since it only appears to be joined at a small part... T^T

I don't believe it. xD awwww. D: Ok, sooo I'm probably going to make the belts and strips out of vinyl~ You're gonna attach them? Mmmm, isn't it connected by the gold lining on the dress? How r u gonna do that? =O!
OH! I was looking at it more and I was thinking with the belts, I'm going to put maybe 1-2 hook and eyes in the front and probably one in the back? If you get what I mean. xD

kannazuki
07-11-2009, 09:45 PM
YES! I think I saw one, too. Also don't believe the "budget" thing either *fume fume* I want to attached them, so it would be one less thing to cause me problems (like the dress+strips fan out on the floor, and I want to be accurate, but it might lead to the costume getting dirty/stepped on Dx ). It looks like its connected at where lining meets at a point (the stomach area). And since there's going to be a lot of fabric for the strips, it might weigh down too much to hold it simply with the lining. Although the hooks and eyes could work. Arghh! This is gonna be hard, but totally worth it!

I'm an up and coming fan of Code Geass, and though it's kinda cool, I haven't fallen in love with anybody except for Mao! <3 XD I'm planning his first outfit, before he gets the ghetto backwards cap and bandages, and I'm super excited to play yet another crazy character.

I've already made his glasses from plexiglass. They're like a visor around my face, I'll get a picture soon, and they push my ears up a bit, but I'm sure the headphones'll cover that. I went to Home Depot for window tinting to make 'em purple, though, and they didn't have it. D': Would an auto parts shop work for that? Also, the edge presses down on my nose and hurts. I don't have the monies for a blowtorch just yet, so I wanna know how to fix that, too.

I was also planning on keeping the headphones on [gravity doesn't like them drooping back and also staying on my ears] by attaching them with velcro to the back of my shades.
Halp? ;o;

@ kannazuki- OH WHA!? It looks like it is one...but...question is how wil the skirt connect? *shrugs* well i won't be showing the whoolle of the dress! what I'm going to do is make white boot covers (since the top looks pointy) and maybe sew it on top of nude stockings that has gold lining in the middle that'll go all the way up. I mean the skirt will be covering it anyways. I call it a way of making the detail w/out full stressing out over it. xD
And I was looking over the the art and some cosplayers, and I think I'll make it out of full black.
Now for the patterns. D: Have any ideas?

I finished Euphemia last week! The only real issues I had wearing it was the fact that I couldn't get comfortable red shoes in time, and that my wig kept spazzing on me. (The buns kept falling off! XD) But I do really like Cosplay Wig's Euphemia wig. Thanks for suggesting it guys! ^__^

@Houkiboshi-chan: Making boot covers? Is it hard to do? I've never attempted it; I might just buy the boots >.<;; As for patterns, I guess most dress patterns will do? I don't think it'll be hard to pick one, since C.C.'s looks like a regular dress, with some not-so-regular add-ons xP

Hey everyone!

I need a bit of help. I'm not sure how to go about making the top part of Cornelia's cape stand up...

you could use interfacing or wire to hold it up.

07-17-2009, 01:43 PM
@ kannazuki- Well I haven't made them before, but since the boots look very pointed from the top, I think it'll be easier. But if feel more comfortable with boots, then you can use that too! ^^ Mmmm, I guess. I guess I better start hunting. w00! xD

@ sweet_magic- I second what Warumono suggested. ^^

Hey guys, I'm going to cosplay Villetta but in her swimsuit outfit. I AM going to change her thong to a LESS revealing piece of clothing, based on cosplay policy since it is a swim suit, should, I wear pantyhose so I don't show too much?

kannazuki
07-19-2009, 12:30 AM
@Houkiboshi-chan: I think I'll buy boots. I kinda have an idea of what fabric I want to use for the dress (will have to go to Joann's soon!). I'm still hunting for a wig the same color of the artbook o__o I don't think they make that kind of green...

Mikka☆
07-19-2009, 01:45 AM
@ kannazuki- lol ok! =D o0o0o0o!! wat kind of fabric? I'm thinking of going down to the fashion district. A friend of mine is doin KOZ Suzu, so I think that CC's and Suzu's outfits could me made of the same material. xD What color green r u looking for? I thought she juss had the same color green. xD

@ Kanaki-chan- oh whoah! props for you! I can never have the confidence to wear a swimsuit like Villeta's! >.< Yes, I think you should wear pantyhose, since you say that the con has strict rules. Pantyhose is a good way to show skin, without fully showing skin. xD

kannazuki
07-19-2009, 02:39 AM
@Houkiboshi-chan: I might go with something semi-stretchy. When I visit the fabric store, I'll let you know if I find something good! ^-^ I'm looking for a jade/grassy green. I looked online but I found them kinda light. I want something a darker shade. But no such luck :/

@Kanaki-chan: It's a swimsuit, yes, but either way, you're still going to show a lot of skin even with pantyhose. I would highly not suggest pantyhose because it's very awkward to see the top of the pantyose around your stomach...=/ I also haven't seen anyone walk around a con in a swimsuit like a bikini but I believe you would be kindly asked by con ops to cover up. Viletta's swimsuit is definitely NOT child-friendly, which most cons are and strive to be. If you're really that worried about your costume, I suggest you email the person in charge of con ops at the convention you plan to cosplay Viletta to and ask them about their policy on swimsuits. But for a photoshoot near a pool, you could probably be fine around the pool area in the swimsuit.

Okay, first of all, does anyone have any recommendations for a base wig for Euphemia? The only Euphemia wig that I've seen that was really truly accurate was styled out of a Cyperous wig. >.<

Also, Ashford Academy boys- where did you get your uniform pattern?

Mikka☆
07-20-2009, 01:45 AM
@ kannazuki- yea! semi-stretchy sounds good! but yea thanks, if you could! :3 And I'll do the same! :D I'm still debating on dark green and black! So hard! Dx But usually some good satin could work~ But the problem is that it doesn't stretch much and it could be UBER shiny. D:

@ Illa Scriptor- Ebay is like golden.

If you are looking for a base wig:

@Anime_lover2316: That pic looks really pretty! Dark purple looks good, too. Her dress looks nice in most royal colors, I'm thinking ^-^

@Houkiboshi-chan: Satin might be too shiny... I still haven't been able to go to the fabric store, but I'm taking a look at patterns online. I don't think I'll be starting this summer T^T

PrincessDominique23
07-23-2009, 03:02 AM
@kannazuki: yea your right^^
When I was at a fabric store I found the most perfect fabric to use for the dress but I forgot what the material was. I really need to go back. Oh and I have been looking at some simplicity patterns online and I think simplicity pattern 2639, 2959 or 3784 could work ^^

kannazuki
07-23-2009, 07:50 PM
@Anime_lover2316: Ooh what type of fabric was it? Of the three patterns, I think 2639 could work ^-^ It looks closer to the dress than the other two, which means less modifying. What color do you think you'll make the dress?

Xila
07-23-2009, 08:00 PM
Hehehe, I'm going as Arthur the cat...!

Weird right? It's really all I can do at this point. I don't have alot of money nor time, and other people in my group are going (Nunally, Spinzaku, Lulu, Rivaz, and Villetta) so I wanted to do Geass too... and now I am... As a cat. XD I should be reconizable, though, If Im walking around with a geass group, (Occationally biting at our Spinzaku, and possibly others) and the face paint, with black around one eye, black on the tail, and the black dot on my forhead... thats all the reconizable markings Arthur has, right?

HOMFG! And thanks for the pattern and picture references! =D What I'm thinking of doin is probably a slimming wedding dress pattern and altering the skirt.

@ kannazuki- I think there are different types of satin. I'm not so sure. But, me and friend who's doin KOZ Suzu are gonna juss go fabric shopping since the Empire gang looks like they have outfits all made out of the same type of material.
UGH. Me either. D: I think imma start this fall. Dx I'm cutting down on cosplays for this crazy but lovely outfit! xD

Illa Scriptor
07-23-2009, 09:32 PM
Okays, I've started looking for fabrics for my Euphie dress (the one with all the crazy scallops), and I ask- what fabric do you all recommend? I've heard duchess satin or microfibre would work well?

PrincessDominique23
07-23-2009, 11:17 PM
@kannazuki: hhmm maybe satin since there are different kinds. One of my friends told me to use polyester and put satin on top of it to give it a nice solid yet shiny color to it:)

@Houkiboshi-chan: your welcome I have 2 others reference pics if you'd like?
Yes dark purple is so pretty >w< The first dress I saw of empress C.C was the black one, then the aqua one, but I fell in love with the purple.
Take a look at this video, they have 2 Empress C.C's one in aqua and one in purple
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDJchD0EeLE

Oh and here are the other pics:

So what color do you guys think you will use for your Empress dress?

kannazuki
07-23-2009, 11:57 PM
@Houkiboshi-chan: Ohh. I might go fabric shopping when summer ends. Hopefully! I definitely want to get this finished by the cons next year. But I don't know If I can cut down on cosplays, even if I try hard Dx Just too many I want to do! Thankfully, some are fairly easy...

@Anime_lover2316: Wow so many different versions o___o I think I'll go with black. Purple is pretty, but only if it's really dark. Either way, it won't be noticeably colorful.

@Xila: I guess as long as you have a Suzaku, and Arthur's trademark features, you should be fine. Maybe wearing clothes that fit with his fur scheme also?

PrincessDominique23
07-24-2009, 12:33 AM

But I want to start this dress early since I have exactly one year until Anime Expo to do this:) But hey, you can always start early and this dress looks like it will take alot of time. And cool your going with black:), I will do the royal dark purple one ^^ What con will u wear your dress 2?

07-24-2009, 12:41 AM
@Anime_lover2316- whoah....my comment got cut. but ANYWAYZ,
AHH! My friend filmed that! xDD He and a friend even did that at Anime Expo! LOL! But yeah, I've seen the aqua, green-ish and black ones.
I'll most likely stick with black or a black-ish green to be safe. 'Cause most of the CLAMP artwork is black. xD
AH! And cosplayers who do the Empire gang make me SOOO motivated! AH!

@ kannazuki- LOL! Yes, everyone must have a sort of "monster" cosplay list! *dies* Yes, but definitely by next year! We can do it!! *high fives*

@ Illa Scriptor- Mmmm, which one is that dress again? But usually with Euphie dresses, a lot of people tend to use satin, dunno which kind though. xD

@ konataFTW- OH! I'll be going next year~ =DDD I'll be bringing my friends who do Kallen, Anya, Suzaku and Tianzi~~ =D We really wanna do Code for Fanime~ So hopefully we can finish by then! >.<

I'm so tempted to go find a Zero Mask, to run around in because we also have a lulu too, but that would defeat the entire purpose of being Arthur- MONEY PROBLEMS, lol. Maybe of If I find a Zero at the con, I can borrow his mask while I take pictures with him or whatever. I think it'd be hilarious XD

What exactly is his fur scheme?I can never find a picture of his back, where I believe he has a patch of lighter fur, right...?

My friends and I are doing an eleven person, dual outfit Code Geass Cosplay. I, personally, am Kallen, and I have to say the absolute hardest part of this (as I'm helping with everyone's costumes) has to be our Zero's helmet. Impossible.

I have that wig in purple. It's nice but it's a tad on the thin side, so you wouldn't have any extra hair to make her buns with.

Okay, so my bf really wants to do Suzaku's Knight of Euphemia costume instead of the school uniform...

Gold pleather for the lines, sure. Black stretch material for the turtleneck, okay. But what on earth do I use for the white part? D: Vinyl seems like a good choice, but... ugh. Vinyl.

Vinyl seems good. Though I know a lot of DGM cosplayers have used a type of heavy satin insted of pleather/vinyl because it gives off the same shinies. I've never tried this myself so I cant say for sure. >.<

At the Kumoricon masquerade I'll be doing Kallen in her sound episode dress. I'll be with a Euphie and a Cornelia too. I finished the mask a few days ago (you can kind of see it in my avatar) and I was wondering, should I make little bat wings for it? Our Euphie was thinking about doing angel wings and since Kallen's been drawn with bat wings before I thought it might be appropriate but I'm not sure~

So longwinded :geek:

I'm planning to cosplay as CC in her restraint suit for A-Kon 21 next year, but I was wondering if anyone had tips on what kind of fabric to use for it? My biggest concerns are quality and cost. I want it to look good, but I don't want to blow all of my money on just the fabric.

Also, I'm helping my friend make a Zero costume, and was wondering: For his cape, would satin be a good fabric? I have a satin cape of my own, and it gets hot fast. Since we live in Texas, that can be trouble. Is there a more breathable alternative?

SATIN IS A BIG NO NO. Especially if you intend to use the cheap quality costume satin. really, it just looks like crap and wrinkles and is WAYYYYY too shiny for Zero's cape. Use something more sturdy and durable like twill or even a heavy weight prom fabric, if you still want some sheen.

As for C.C.'s bodysuit, try a white twill, I always imagined that her outfit is super durable and made of a sturdy fabric because it's well, like a fully body straightjacket so prisoners wouldn't be wearing like, thin cotton or bridal fabric.

I'm planning a Zero cosplay (R2 version) but it's my first and I don't know my way around fabrics at all. :o
I posted a thread for the question here - http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=187345 if you want to answer me on that or you can answer here, any answer at all would be appreciated. :3

I adore this series and therefore want to do a lot of cosplays from it. Right now, my main three are Zero (R2 version), Emperor Lelouch, and Suzaku (Knight of Zero version). These three I think I'm going to have to buy, but I've found what look to be very nice costumes from reputable sellers, so we'll see how that little endeavor goes.

As for the big one, my dream cosplay is to do Schneizel. That tailcoat of doom I feel in love with the first time I saw it, and now it's the main one I really wanna dig in to. Problem is I want to try to do it all from scratch, which means getting a lot of muslin (thank god JoAnn's is having a sale on that stuff next weekend :3), a lot fo detailed measurements for myself, and a looooot of patience. I've never attempted something so complicated, so it'll be an adventure once I get it started.

Now, as others have said before, I'm having trouble deciding on what kind of fabric to ake the final versions in. I'm not going anywhere near anything shiny or thin, but I'd really prefer to stay away from things that are 100% cotton (me + iron = one-sided yelling match). Any suggestions on what to use for Schneizel? Anything is most appreciated.

Thank you so much! I was really lost on what to use for CC, and your point on satin was something I'd completely forgotten. (It's probably easy to see that I don't use my cape very often.) I'll get my friend and we'll check out the fabrics you mentioned for Zero's cape and go from there. Thanks again!

No problem! ^^ I've worked in a fabric store for a bit so I know fabrics quite well, and I've seen what to use and what definitely not to sue for costumes. In the chance that the store doesn't have any twill, you could try a white denim-like material that's still sturdy, but has a little bit of stretch for C.C.

Alright~ That helps greatly. Now that I know what things are best to look for, I can get a better start.

I finally got back to work on Kallen today. In addition to her Ashford uniform, I'm currently sewing this dress (http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y243/solarprincess/cosplay/Kallen.jpg) for AWA's ball. I'm almost halfway done with the dress, and I only have the blazer left for the uniform.

Nice! I haven't seen anyone do that dress yet.

Ending C.C. update: skirt and layers almost done! currently pleating and sewing the red and green layers together. Shoes and laces figured out. Hat needs a new hatband and then the little white flowers. Need to pattern out the black corset thing. Shirt needs white eyelet trim lace and maroon ribbon. Can't wait to wear this!

Well, I finished the bodice for Euphie's dress today, and while it's not perfect, it's a heck of a lot better than I thought it would be. Now to do her skirt overlay, attach it to the bodice, and completely sew Suzaku's uniform... all in less than twenty-four hours. x_x All nighter, here I come.

I'm doing my first Code Geass cosplay for a con next year. I'm being Euphemia Li Britannia (I'm really excited about this one :)) and I just bought my cosplay online, and had a friend of mine make the wig. However, I'm not too sure what kind of shoes to wear underneath the dress that she wears. :D

So my question is, what kind of shoes would work? Maybe a pair of white or pink high heels, maybe ballet flats that Payless sometimes sells. If there are any pictures out there that show what Euphemia's footwear looks like, that would be greatly appreciated.

Has anyone who has done Euphemia worn a pettiocoat underneath the dress? My cosplay comes with one and after seeing what it looks like underneath the cosplay, I believe it would make it quite poofy and cute.

Thank you so much
