View Full Version : No Clue Where To Begin Looking For These

Um, hey there.

I'm not exactly a super duper good cosplay maker, but I'm completely stuck just on store bought items.. I'm trying to find a spandex-type bodysuit or unitard in a dark purple. And a cheap brown karate belt (legit-ish, but not the expensive kind) I'm cosplaying Yuri Sakazaki from KOF (Her Capcom Vs. SNK outfit shown http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-02/art/capsnk-yuri-sakazaki1.jpg (Here))

I've just been getting frustrated and don't want to go out and pay $50 for a full body suit liek the sports people have just to cut it up. Thanks ahead of time!! :D

Found these two for the bodysuit.

This is legit the first hit on google when you search for, "karate belt buy."

Oh wow, those are great! Prolly won't make it in time, but I can always wait for next time. :D I had tried looking for a pattern with my sis since she needed to make a suit for a friend. No dice at Hancock, so she went forth making her own. O.o And I know that if I try to use any pattern, it'll end in disaster. Patterns=Failure.

Are there thrift stores around you? You could probably find a cheap belt made of similar stuff as a karate belt there. Purse/messenger bag straps that are really long work well too. If it's any color other than black, they make Rit dye that you can soak it in to make it the correct color.

Yuri is as 80's as it gets with her fashion. The good news for you is that she doesn't wear a bodysuit:

Search around for 'cobalt blue leggings' and a blue sports bra.
For the belt: http://www.amazon.com/Karate-Martial-Sold-Brown-Junior/dp/B00491I0P8 $4, cheaper than you can make one for.
