Thank you very much!
Try under Cosplay by Series/Genre, Video Games. They will point you in the right direction.

Are you just looking for a pattern of an apron with a pinner? You can draft one if you don't want to pay for a pattern. The top is a trapazoid, double sided. The waistband is double sided with the top and bottom of the apron sandwiched inbetween. The bottom or skirt is a large rectangle hemmed and finished. Fullness depends on width.

I'm looking for a pattern to start a Scarlet Witch costume from.
Basically I want something that is a bodysuit, but I want to be able to put boning it so the top part is like a bustier.
Any pattern suggestions?
Thanks.
Try under Cosplay by Series/Genres, Comics/Cartoons, Marvel Universe. Unless the Scarlet Witch has changed. Her costume is red tights and a reinforced swimsuit like item.

Sorry for the multiple post. But the number of pictures and icons kept me from posting altogether.

This will be my first attempt at making armor, but it seems easy enough. Making foam armor that is. That particular armor is psycho. lol. In fact I told him he needed to think of a different more basic armor. His response was to show me this:http://www.tatianacrisan.com/wp-cont...gale_armor.jpg Which seems easier, but not really what I was asking for. LOL.

I found a few sort of resources for this armor, the Nightingale Armor online, but I'm not really sure how to size the armor effectively. I'll take a look at the forums again, though I didn't see anything specific yesterday when I was looking. Craft foam seemed the easiest and most cost effective medium at the moment. I'd hate to kill leather when I have no idea what I'm doing yet.

But try foam, foam board, and longbow as keywords too. There are several excellent links; all with good advice. Myself I'd look into using the PVC method off of youtube for that particular style. If you don't have a well vented work area then foam or foam board. The foam board would be harder to get a 3D look. Also try the cosplay by series/genre, cartoons/comics, marvel universe.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cc5-y9S7R0U&feature=fvst This is just one of them.

Hey again I just need help with some of Black Star's outfit. I've got the pants covered, however the shirt will be a bit annoying. I guess I could use wire to hold it up, but I'm not sure what kind. I really want to make his shoes too. Any ideas for that?

Thank you for the better pictures. As to the shirt, have you thought about heavy duty interfacing. Lighter weight interfacing is used in waistbans and jacket collars. Or you could try buckrum. It's used in hats to make them stiff.

Oh that would be good I'll see if I can get it at a craft store or something. Any ideas for the shoes? If not I'll prob just wear regular but that kinda defeats the purpose xD

I have found buckrum at fabric stores in the past, but it is hit or miss. As for the shoes the frist thing that comes mind is that they look like Sora's from Kingdom Hearts (being oversized and all). Under the prop etc. section do a Forum Search using Sora and Shoes and alot will come up. Even Black Star and Shoes might bring up something. A quick google search (sora kingdom hearts shoe tutorial) brought up several tutorials under deviant art and youtube. One cosplay thread suggest using a sneaker base and padding it with uposterly foam. Another has a step by step guide.

I got the buckram and it should work thanks! As for the shoes I think doing the Sora shoes would work. I could always just grab my pair of boots and put fabric on those xD I'll try with the foam tho cause I dunno if I wanna give up my boots :P Thanks so much! One last thing for you though! I need some advice for his gloves. His gloves are fingerless and then has these like weight things on his wrists. Any advice on that?

That's a hard one. I've seen people use foam covered with tape, fabric etc. for something like that but I can't say how they get it on. The best think I can tell you to do is look at actual wrist weights for ideas. You could make the gloves and then slip on or otherwise attach the cuffs. Velcro comes to mind. I've seen these hair dounuts in Claire's. They are round pieces of foam. Somethin like recovered might give you what you want. Look at wrist weights for ideas.

I'm looking for a tutorial/some help on making Tiida from Shining Force Feather.
http://cosplyr.com/file/pic/photo/20...8a28e9_500.jpg
The most I need help with is making the lace-up top, making and/or altering the pants and also making what I believe to be shoe covers (the purple part she wears under her pants)
Thank you ^^
