I would like to cosplay Joan from War of Genesis III sometime in the near future. However, I keep looking at these pictures (http://garnet.nu/joan/) and I can't figure out where the black strap thing leads to. I want to be as correct as possible with this costume. If anyone knows where it leads to, or better yet, a place with REALLY AWESOME PICTURES, I will forever be greatful! Thanks a bunch in advance.

From the best I can tell it loops around back and then up and under the skirt. Most liekly to link in a way similar as the front. This is my opinion as you can see the strap loop around back and seem to edge in closer to the skirt part.

that costume took me some time, so ill try and help! ^_~ i put the strap under the blouse. it went from the end of the hook at the front of the skirt and looped all the way down and i made a hook up under the top and put it there. :/ i hope that helped. im not good at explainin!

Thank you very much for your help! I'm not sure when I want to start making this costume, but I am really eager to see how yours turned out! Keep me in touch when you upload pictures! Thanks again

I seem to recall it being attached by a metal loop to the back of the butflap. I dug out this little sprite someone sent me of joan, which albeit blurry, shows a general idea of what she has going on.

Ooh, I need help too! I'm doing Beramode ( http://www.geocities.com/thewog3/f_beramode.jpg ) and it's just lovely if I do say so myself... but that purple criss-crossy thingy is giving mi a headache... any suggestions on what to use?

PVC over interfacing to stiffen it.

Purple PVC? I've never seen that... hmm...
Know where I can get some?

You can get PVC in a lot of fabric stores, generally stocked either in evening wear or outer wear, or at web stores like Velvetfabrics.com
I can look at my stack of swatches and tell you if the latter has the right color for you. ^_^

PVC would be perfect because it has that smooth shiny quality to it which fits the material on the picture perfectly.

Oh, sorry I wasn't clear. I know where to get general PVC, but purple? I'm not sure if I've ever seen purple...

>I can look at my stack of swatches and tell you if the latter has the right color for you. ^_^

Oh would you? You are the Lord of Heaven, thank you!

I'm planning to make Carlos for next year. ^_^ It'll probably be my first crossplay, even though everyone I show his picture to thinks that he's a girl anyway. ^_^

Prays he'll have enough $$$ left over after K',Tsume,and chaos to make Calintz.

If I took some pictures of what I've got so far for Beramode, would y'all be so kind as to comment?

05-27-2003, 02:46 PM
Dude! go for it!

05-29-2003, 04:50 PM
Okays, here's what I have^_^

It really needs to be ironed, and yeah, there's still work to be done. My "tail" thingy on the shirt is too long, but I like it so I may just keep it that way. I know there's supposed to be a bigger gap below the strips of the shirt but I patterned the top and bottom seperately and didn't notice until it was too late and I can't afford to do it over right now.
Yeah, so comment here or on the pic^_^ Thanx

Rosy...? That's good right? *blink*
