Fabric paint and a template of the virgo sign will be your best friend here, I recommend using a sponge brush for the applying and dabbing instead of stroking on the paint since it wont run as much.

Since you are wearing a tux... I think a belt might look nice. Again this is a trial error effect since you are the one wearing it and if you life the sash over the belt of belt over the sash it can be up to you =D

Fabric paint bro is your best friend when working with Homestuck cosplay I find to do those little add ons and such xD
