Smile Medusa's Hood Advice?

Hello Everyone

I'am very close to the completion of my Medusa Cosplay, but I have one question that's just driving me nuts...for the symbol on her hood, should I use fabric paint or cut out and sew the symbol on? what would you recomend? anyone have any tips?

Please and Thank You

White fabric paint might not be very opaque. It might also harden the material a bit. I say sew the white on. There is tutorial on deviantArt using heat'n bond, then satin stitching the material down for reinforcement. If you don't have a sewing machine, or access to one, painting might be a better idea. Good luck with your Medusa cosplay!

I'm also cosplaying as Medusa! We need to meet up and take a picture, lol! Instead of sewing, you could use the heat n bond material and Iron on the cut out pattern with it. It looks like small strips of dryer sheets on a cardboard roll. It's strong and easier to use than thread. Don't put it in the washer after you attach it. It will dissolve.
