Hello everyone, I am looking for help for my friend's and I's cosplay. My friend is being Grell and I am being Ciel. I've been having trouble trying to figure out how to make the giant bow on the back of their coats. Any ideas? I have also been having trouble trying to figure out how to make Grell's teeth on a very low buget and lastly I've been having trouble trying to find two wig caps. That's about it. I live over in the state of Washington so for the wig cap thing anywhere in Washington that has them would be great. Thank you for your time.

The bows are pretty easy to make. For Grell, I would put a single piece of black along the back of the coat from seam to seam, then make the other pieces separate. You will make one that is folded in half, to be the loops of the bow, on that is the length of the tails and then one to wrap around it to be the knot. Once you do that, center the loop and tails over the strip across the back of the coat, then wrap the knot piece around them in the center, overlapping the ends in the back, then hand stitch the ends, through all thicknesses except the top of the knot. Make any sense? As for Ciel's, depends on which version you are making. You can either do the same as I said for Grell, or you can do all the steps except adding the piece across the back and then hand stitch it to the coat. That's what I did for my friend's Ciel cosplay.

Can't say I can help you on the teeth part. As for wig caps, most beauty supply shops carry them. They are just a couple of bucks. Try places like Sally Beauty Supply or any of the many generic ones that pop up (at least I know there are a ton around me...but that could be because I live in Memphis where people are always getting braids and they sell all the extensions and whatnot).

Alll right thank you that was very helpful I actually got the wig caps today so I'm done with that search and thank you for help with the bow I am actually doing the ciel's outfit from the second season so I will just probably make it like Grell's.

I haven't really watched the second season much, but I think I know what you are talking about. If you need any help, just PM me and I will give you whatever I can in assistance.
