Hi,
I'm pretty new at this and was wondering how to get patterns/designs and such onto clothing?
When I did sakura from naruto, I just used an iron on transfer and cut out the shape from the fabric, but this time Im doing Boa Hancock and her patterns are larger and more ornate.

This is Boa:

The first thing that comes to mind is fabric paint and stenciles.

Look under the props/accessories/armour section. Some interesting results came up when I typed in sword, katana, Tetsusaiga, tutorial, and yasha. There is a generic how to make blank sword.

http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=28010 is what I got when I googled Tetsusaiga tutorial.

I'm sorry, but without a picture I'm working blind.
The heart hunter cosplay was taken care of, as far as the imitation black one goes, here's a reference: http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/i/20...nimerocks4.jpg

Here's another one:http://qooshopping.tea-nifty.com/coc...8/22/voc30.jpg

Sorry, I can't find better references :<

Try this link. It might help. You can PM the original poster for info. Also, look under cosplay by series J-rock/J-pop. There is a sub thread for Vocaloid. The problem is I know how I'd put the costume together, but don't thing I could explain it.

Edit: Sorry LPGohan, it would help if I put the link(s) in the post. Try this on this site.http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=280344&highlight=imitation+black+ len
http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=226691&highlight=imitation+Black+ len.

Also, there are several IM Len in the costume critique.

Yes there is more. It looks like there are several ways to do the top of Len's IM cosplay. The two I've seen the most of are a off the shoulder ren farie wentches top thingy (like the first link on the previous post) or neck straps and free standing sleeveshttp://www.fanpop.com/spots/vocaloid...on-black-photo. The skirt in all cases is a flounce skirt and you can get the pattern from several Civil War era sites. Simplicity used to have one, Truely Victorian cares onehttp://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcar...6&cat=1&page=1, and past patterns has one. Past patterns also has a rep for patterns that don't come out right, holes and buttons don't line up, sizes run small, etc. Don't try Past Patterns if your new at sewing.

For the top I'd try either Simplicity 1773 or 9966. You will have to do some modifying in all cases, but they can used as a base. A modisty panel can be easly added to both the Simplicity tops for example.

Hello everyone!

I bought an Angewomon cosplay and sadly the helm came all full of little roles and the joint parts can be seen. Its made of foam and I need a way to eliminate those, but its hard since the helm is already complete.

Thanks!

I'm a first time cosplayer so I decided on doing something simple like mareep the only problem I am having is the tail. Are there any alternatives to making a stuffed one? I already made the ears out of model magic and I think it would look strange (since I made them shiny)

That sucks, try searching the props/accessories/armour section. Better yet start a new thread with pictures.

There are several help threads in the general construction section and cosplay by series/ anime and manga. Also try this link:http://www.miccostumes.com/blog/dail...chigo-cosplay/. That you for the pictures. She's so sweet; I'm going to need an insulin shot.

There are several fabrics that are shiny. If they seem flimsey line them with something heavier. A stuffed one seems the easiest option.
