i am making a kurumi costume, and i'm not sure how to make her sleeves.

i've thought of a few ways to pull it off, but i'm looking for more.
i want them to look exactly like the pic, and if you look closely, they don't touch her arm. i'm not worried about them touching my arm, but i want the stiff bubble look that they have.

Aye, definatley some wire frame.. but if you're up for comfort.. you can try using a plastic container.. and making a hole into it with some help.. and sewing the fabric on it... but that could be a bit troublesome ^^;

I juts finished a Kurumi costume and the sleeves were the worst part. I ended up useing heavy sew in interfaceing, wire, craft foam, and elastic all of this with a kinda heavy satin material. Just go with me on this one, if you can, use something in the cotton range if you haven't already bought fabric for it!
