Keep in mind, to deal with the big size of the shoulders, that that part of the pattern you're working with will have to be bigger.

You can sew anything by hand if you put your mind to it, it just takes forever (trust me, I've done most of mine by hand XD
Uhhh....i feel dumb but ah...can you sew belts? As in sew through them to attach them to fabric or is there a better way?

Short answer: Yes
Long Answer: It depends on what material the belt is.

If you're going to be sewing by hand, then I'd avoid trying to sew through any store-bought belts. The leather is thick, tough and it WILL break your needles (I speak from experience). Sometimes you can get lucky and find a belt that's pretty thin, but that's really your call. In any case, I strongly recommend getting a pair of leather needles.

Constructing your own belts from scratch is entirely possible and there's a few ways you can do this too. Using real leather (i.e. animal hides) gives the best result for realism, but the stuff's not easy to work with and you'll need special tools. Other options would be to go with a faux leather- pleather/vinyl/PVC...it's all really the same thing. Regardless of which you use, the things to keep in mind are weight (how "thick" it is), finish (flat, shiny, textured) and stretch. Finding a lightweight leather would be the easiest to sew to clothing. Keep in mind that any hole you make will be permanent, so sew carefully.

Also, sewing isn't the only way for attaching belts to fabric. A strong industrial glue (like E6000) will work, and is pretty permanent. You could also get creative with snaps or velcro if you wanted the belts to be detachable for washing purposes.

Ok, i've started sewing the bolero, I'm doing it in two patterns basically: the sleeves and the mini jacket part. My question is, the shoulder pads go with the mini jacket part, not the sleeves right? or am i taking this the wrong way lol

[[ Hi Usagiiiii <333 xD ]]
I haven't seen anything for it yet, but I'm making a brand new, original variation of Dizzy. Should we just organize a get-together, or just collide the days we wear our GG costumes if nothing else?

I've cosplayed a black/red/silver variant of Millia Rage, but I'm retiring her for a while until I lose some weight. :3 She's been taken to Otakon 2007 and Katsucon this year. :3

AH! I do. I only have one that I like... Once I get a new hair band, I'll probably get better pictures...

But here's one?

If.. I think I'm imagining what you mean correctly? Then yes

Thanks again. I know she has similar colors in Slash, but I couldn't actually get a picture of her in those colors to use as reference, so I did what I could. :3

When I cosplay her, no one knows who I am because of the alternate colors. XDD;;

Just repeating a question: Since it seems there likely won't be a Guilty Gear group (or if there is one forming, I happen to pass over it everytime...), would anyone bringing a GG costume to AX09 like to have a mini group?

I have started on my black HOS, firstly with the buckle terror. Amazingly, his buckles only accounted to be half of normal Sol's O___O

For his blade, i'm spraying my pink one red, kinda lazy to make a third blade...

I almost cried while taking out the buttons on default HOS for the new costume since the old one was worn out. IT WAS SO PAINFUL.

I'm debating on whether or not I should bring my Dizzy old costume to AX. I don't think they are going to allow my 10 ft wings anymore. And my boyfriend's Ky costume needs some TLC from sitting in a bag from all these years.

You guys should go ahead and do it anyways. Its GG's 10th anniversary
