I'm pretty bad at judging what sort of fabric to use for cosplay- sort'v like fabric-blind if there is such a thing!
I really need peoples opinions on what sort of fabric I should use for certain bits of my cosplay! I'm cosplaying Frodo Baggins, and I want the fabric to seem genuine! (I really can't stand satin cosplays)
Heres some reference pictures:
I was going to just use a plain dress shirt but then changed my mind and decided to make a more authentic looking shirt. Should I use some sort of linen?
I'm not sure what fabric that is! It sorta looks like velvet- but not shiny? Corduroy? And what colour? It looks red in some pictures, but brown and rusty in others...
These sorta look quite tough, not sure if its cotton or corduroy or what?!
This confused me...(lol, what doesnt), I know its wool. But in some shots it looks quite thick, but in others it seems quite soft and lightweight? I have no clue in least about woolen fabrics! -_-'
I'm so sorry for being useless at identifying fabrics!
Any help or opinions will be gladly appreciated! (also any tips or warnings about any fabrics or costs etc)
