View Full Version : Puffy Leg Warmers- A Tutorial

Most leg warmer tutorials are for free hanging, triangular shaped leggings that dont have any body/volume to them. This tutorial was originally used for my Len Kagamine cosplay.

This is MY tutorial for leggings with VOLUME. AKA, puffiness! x3
Please don't steal! i worked very hard on this!!
i apologize for my handwriting!

:O This is great help! Your handwriting is a bit hard to read, but I can make it out enough to understand it. I'll keep this topic in mind if I have free time to remake my warmers~

I would recommend showing examples along with typing the tutorial out into one gif and don't hand write it. Not everyone can read your hand writing.

i know. But i lack a camera and anything remotely close to a typing program xD

This is great! I've always wanted a pair of puffy legwarmers. ^_^ I agree the writing is a tad bit hard to read, but I was able to understand it.

Maybe screen shot your typing on notepad or Microsoft word?
It will help greatly. ^_^

i don't have either of those xD
believe me, if i had something like that i wouldnt have written it down. i know how bad my hand writing is.

I dont know what these people are complaining about, i could read your writing just fine. I dont think its messy at all, i've seen WAY worse....:/

Anyway, great tutorial! I just skimmed it, but it looks great!^-^ I'll definitely be using it for my own Len (and my friend's Rin i'll be making) cosplay!

Thanks for sharing!:'D

Good tutorial ^^ It helped me figure out something I had trouble with.

If you want I can help with the writing and make it on Photoshop =]

I just wanted to say that I just finished doing my leg warmers for Rin using your tutorial and they came out fantastic! Thanks a lot!

They look good to me - I had no problem with your handwriting, I thought it was clear xD I'll most definitely be using this for my cosplay ^^

I had no problem reading your handwriting(it's alot better than mine I'll tell you that). I was just wondering though, if i put elastic on the bottom and then rolled the puffy part over the elastic would it work?

09-12-2010, 04:10 PM
results can be seen here (this isnt the best shot, the one on the right had an accident earlier (the elastic was beginning to tear)
im so sorry it took me so long for this, but honestly id forgotten id even made this tutorial xD
i would LOVE to see your results, everyone!

ill look back over the tut and see if i can rememer how to answer your question XD

The measurements at the beginnning, besides the top one, are they mandatory like that or do they need to be tailored to each person's leg?

Edit: Oh thank you, I'd forgotten I'd made that post myself

This tutorial really helps! I saw pictures of your Len cosplay - Great job with it! It looks awesome! I'll be using this tutorial to help me and my mom make Rin's legwarmers. = )
