Still need your help to make Leeloo suspenders

To make my own Leeloo suspenders by myself, it may a old topic, but I still haven't started. The suspenders looks simple, and there are lots of sources which help me to make it step by step.
The question is I'm a new on making costume, there is no clue how and where should I start. I don't want to see a failure work, especially at my first work. It really means something for me.
I've asked a similar question, and got a tutorial to do it. thanks for her.

Any suggestions to conquer the fear and make a not that bad suspenders?

The only way to get over the fear is to jump in!

If you're very worried, Make sure that your paper patterns are perfect before you start to work with you materials. Take plenty of time measuring, drafting and trying it on until you feel comfortable with what you've got.

Good luck!

If it hadn't already been mentioned, in previous threads, Leeloo's suspenders in the movie were cast latex pieces. A lot of the costume parts in the movie were made out of latex for a futuristic feel. But you can do them out of other methods, including fabric, if that's not a viable method for you (even with a tutorial).

Decide how you're going to do them first, then it may not be so scary when you go to actually start.

Yes, my idea for it is mix two parts together and I'd like to use elastic material

Thanks, I'll double check the material, it can't be fail. ^^

When, or if, you do decide to come back to this or for anyone else who may be interested JiaJem has a very reasonable tutorial on casting the suspenders even for first time mold makers.
