Hello Everyone :wave:

I'am very close to the completion of my Medusa Cosplay, but I have one question that's just driving me nuts...for the symbol on her hood, should I use fabric paint or cut out and sew the symbol on? what would you recomend? anyone have any tips?

Please and Thank You :)

White fabric paint might not be very opaque. It might also harden the material a bit. I say sew the white on. There is tutorial on deviantArt using heat'n bond, then satin stitching the material down for reinforcement. If you don't have a sewing machine, or access to one, painting might be a better idea. Good luck with your Medusa cosplay!

I'm also cosplaying as Medusa! We need to meet up and take a picture, lol! Instead of sewing, you could use the heat n bond material and Iron on the cut out pattern with it. It looks like small strips of dryer sheets on a cardboard roll. It's strong and easier to use than thread. Don't put it in the washer after you attach it. It will dissolve.
