Thanks; I'm glad you found the info useful. I'm so sorry we missed you at Ohayo! We'll be at ACEN next, so maybe we'll see you there?

Your tutorial looks great! I'll include a link to it in the first post in this thread, so others can find the patterns more easily. Thanks for drawing them up so nicely. If you don't mind, I'll also post a link to your tutorial from our own website (AndSewingIsHalfTheBattle.com).

I then covered it in metallic tape that was left over from a project my dad was doing, don't know what it was called). Though my new uniform will have something a bit different now that I'm more skilled at finding oddball pieces, (thank you steampunk).

I then hot glued all the cords into it. My shoulder Empulet does have a button hole so the cord was removable from the jacket for cleaning.

Oh I almost forgot about this thread. I certainly don't mind you posting it; in fact I'm just glad that more people will be able to find the information they need. I know I personally had some trouble finding a lot of good information on how exactly to make everything so if I can help someone else with that process then I'll be happy.

Btw the pattern I made is scaled 1:1. That means if you print it out (it'll take quite a few sheets of paper and you'll have to tape stuff together) you should have a pattern that matches the dimensions stated.

I don't think I'll be able to make it to ACen but I should be at Colossalcon, not sure if you guys are going?

We're hoping to. Still trying to sort out schedules for the rest of the year, but that's a definite possibility.

Hopefully I can have time to work on something for Colossalcon. It's tough to get in time for other stuff with how much work is involved with med school right now but luckily I have the next week off for spring break. Hope we can actually meet in person at Colossalcon (I've only been to Ohayocon and Colossalcon so far and not sure if I have time to be going to more).

Is the butcape knee-length or just below? Also about how wide in the panel between the two butcape flaps in the front?

From what I can tell, the butt cape length should be about halfway between the tops of your boots and your knee. Also, the opening seems to be along the midline of your leg.

I am so grateful that resources like this exist, because otherwise I would be lost.

... Now, if anyone has a tutorial for the fur-lined 'Briggs' jacket from Brotherhood... I'll be your BFF. Honestly, I figure I could just modify the long-jacket design I used for my old Dr. Horrible labcoat, since it is pretty similar in design...

Regardless! Thanks for this, I'm going to take a shot at this. If I fail, expect a listing to show up in the commissions marketplace. >.>

Does anyone have the pattern from animeinsights previously downloaded? I used it for my Riza Jacket, but I've since gotten a new computer and no longer have the pattern. The website is down, and I'm not able to re-download it. Anyone wanna send it to me? Please?

Try this link. I don't think the one on ASIHTB is working anymore because the guy moved it to an archive. If that doesn't work PM me and I'll send it to you. :3

Hey,

I'm planning to make a Riza cosplay (I have a little less than a year) but I don't want to cut my hair into bangs. I have the right color for her hair, but I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to get clip-in bangs. I'd prefer physical stores, if possible.

Thanks!
