Well this is all I got up to now. If I missed anything, PLEASE post it, I would greatly apreciate it.

Now the help that I actually want.. is the best kind of Fabric we should use for our costumes. If you only suggest for one chara, it's fine, i'll edit this post and add it in whenever anyone posts something. But i'd like the best fabric info for all of these costumes.. If possible.. Thank you =D

I did all three layers of Fai's costume and I used a couple different fabrics ^_^ I used just a normal cotten for the inner blue coat and then for the shirt and the outer coat I actually used flannel. My thinking was, if he lived in a castle surrounded by what looked like ice and cold and if he feels he should be wearing layors, then it is obviously cold enough to be wearing flannel XD I have pictures in my gallery if you are curious as to how it looks.

You can use just a normal cotton fabric for the shirt though. Its all up to what you feel like using and how you want it to look. I know some people have used a shiny satin like material for the shirt before.

-Red Belt with holes: A large red belt with holes.
-Red belt without holes: Either i'm blind, or this one doesn't have holes.

-Pants: Long, skin tight, black.Actually, since you did mention that you and your friends were looking at manga cosplays, I thought that I'd mention that Kurogane's belts don't have holes in either of them in the manga. The top belt actually has eliptical inserts of some kind.

And once again, manga specific, but his pants aren't skin tight. You can see a good lot of wrinkles in this image (although you'd need to squint cause I'm too lazy to upload the larger version of this image).

For my Fye costume, I used white cotton-blend suiting for his white jacket (layer one) and faux suede for the coats.

For Kurogane's armour, vinyl/pleather covering either craft foam or styrene plastic sheeting would be best, methinks. There are probably some other types of plastic that are more readily available in this small size.

Syoran's pants and cloak would probably work well if made with bottomweights.

Cottons are best for these costumes because of the multiple layers that each of the characters wear. Its best to just go through a fabric store with colour in mind and just touch everything. Fabric texture and weight is important.

My brain is dead... so that's all I've got right now. I'mma go pay attention to my teacher now.
