In need of some SERIOUS help
Okay, so, I'm going to be Russia at a con in a bit less than two weeks. My mom's gotten one of her friends to help make my coat for me. The problem is, I saw it today and she's dyed the fabric a dark reddish brown, not the light beige I need. I keep on trying to explain that it's not the right colour to my mom, but she keeps on going on and on about how "no one will notice, it's not like everyone's super accurate at that con." I love Russia, and I don't want my cosplay of him to be SO inaccurate that my coat isn't vaguely the right colour ; ~ ; They're going to lighten it, but there's NO way any amount of lightening is going to get that coat light beige. What do I do?
