For Ac-Cubed, I'm going as Rem from Death Note. I really need help with the outfit. I would love one that looks ncie but cheap enough for me to afford. XD
Also, names of materials would be a big help too.

I'd suggest a a white bodysuit (unitard) to start with and lots and lots of strips of stiffened cloth. You might also want to look into Fosshape (avaliable at cosworx.com) which is fabric that can be heat-shaped.

I actually saw a surprisingly neat looking one for Rising Sun's "Ghetto" photo shoot, let's see if I can track some pics down...

Just another idea on construction. I did like the fabric for the hair there. And if you get a white body suit, it'll look cleaner than the shirt/shorts/tights combo there. So yeah....lots of strips of cloth I think will do the trick, as well as either drawing in black gaps or sewing black in between them. You could also sew strips into a "shirt" and "pants" might be another route to go, if sewing them directly onto the body suit proves to be too difficult. Hope this helps! Good luck! ^^ d
