Alright- well, my Lightning is almost completely done (figuring out how to make a durable shoulder pad) but I have pictures FINALLY of it.

http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.ph...1&member=50760

Also trying to make a better sword/gun.. Weapon or Guord as my friends have dubbed it. If anyone has questions, you may ask!

Can't wait to see every one else's Lightnings!

Naxul: It looks great!! Just curious, where did you find those zippers? Cause my fabric store sucks and never has the right zippers in. They always have the gold ones, but I need silver and they're always the wrong color and length. I have no luck and can't really continue without those.
But it does look good. I put some progress pics in my gallery. It's not much, but I'm happy something is done. I still can't find the right style boots to work on, but I'm still looking.

I actually got them at my local Joann's store. They're zippers you'd use for jeans. I got 7" inches in length ones.

Hope that helps!

Thanks! Makes me mad I don't have a Joann's here as it's my favorite fabric store. Ah wells. Maybe when I go home next weekend I can go to the one there.
The zippers are pretty much all that's holding me back from moving on with this costume. My Hancock Fabrics sucks and never gets the right zippers in when they say they will. =(

I'm sorry, I have another question. Ok, on the jacket there are what look like large eyelets on the pockets. I'm having issues with them. I noticed you did them on yours, but mine won't seem to stick. Any tips?
Can ya tell I so want to finish this thing?!?! lol. I'm just having many issues!

Nah- that's okay if you have another question. First off, did you get the biggest eyelets avaible? I realized that they're actually really big when I first started making up the pattern for the pockets. When you buy the eyelets, the tool should already be in the same package. Unless you did what I did.. When I first brought the eyelets, I got the extra eyelet package, the tool didn't come with the thing I brought. Now I have a bunch of huge eyelets >_>

Hope that helped! And don't feel bad if you have another question-- I'll help anyone.

Oh my gosh, that's EXACTLY what I must have done!! I have a package of big eyelets and bought a tool extra, which wasn't the right one. It stinks. I did buy some pretty big eyelets though. Well, they're the biggest my fabric store had. Mine is always out of stock of things that I need!
Thanks again! Hopefully I'll find the right things. Maybe I can look online so I know excatly what I need to get. Thank you!!

Oh my gosh, I've posted a million things on this thread already, but I keep running into dead ends. I have one fabric store and it sucks. I want to start my skirt, but I can't find the right zippers. The only aluminum zippers my store has are 22" ones when I only need 6" or 9" ones. All the smaller sizes are brass, but I need aluminum. Any points in the right direction?
Why o why am I having so many issues with this costume??!?!

Linnea-- If you're going to post pictures, it's best to upload them on imageshack or photobucket. Taking them from your computer isn't going to show them to the rest of us, sorry =/

ravenmist-- There's always ordering them online you know. That's probably best at this point since clearly your fabric store isn't your best friend right now. ^^'''' I know in the General Costume Help thread, there should be a sticky called "Where can I find _____?" with a section for ordering zippers. You can get them in any color and in any size on one of those sites.

Hey all i'm also a Lightning cosplayer so I figured I'd join in on the frightning fun discussion of her details. Honestly, i'm still messing with stuff on my cosplay well when i get more money to, but i'll be more than happy to help anyone if they liked how I did something @_@ if anyone is going to EXPO and sees the dork carrying the gun and blade versions of her gunblade that'll be me -___- not the bunny though, Momo's staying home.

I'm also fixing up mine xD wonder if you remember me from Fanime this year..

I'll be at Anime Expo too as Lightning. I need to fix up my sword/gun thing (Guord?) though-- It wont stay still when it's in the "sword" mode.

I'm sorry, I had to laugh at that..."guord". lol.

Still having zipper issues. No one on any wesbite seems to carry what I'm looking for. Cosplay life sucks sometimes. Oh wells. Must keep looking!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
