what's your sewing experience like?
Gaius is by far the hardest of the three
Lucina and Anna rank similarly.
Anna has the harder sewing wise, Lucina though has some armor to deal with (leg, arm, crowny thing- and my sister and I are finding that darned crowny thing evil in that respect)
Lucina's armor can be done with craft foam and there are LOTS of tutorials out there for craft foam armor- just google :3 and craft foam itself, its that kiddy fun foam stuff, costs all of a dollar a sheet. Lucina's outfit on the other hand; my sister and I are just used corded blue leggings and a turtleneck for the undershirt, then after that the cape is a basic rectangle cape with a sort of crusader top over it- which is a little tricky but not infeasible. If you want to do her mask though, yikes. I offer no real suggestions for that. ^^;
Anna on the other hand has very little armor (really just her belt thing and some arm bands, also can be craft foamed) but her outfit is logistically much harder. Shes got derp leather straps on the top of her outfit, that jester collar from hell and poofy pants and sleeves which makes her a challenge for an inexperienced sewer
Hope this helped! And sorry if I made anything seem to hard or anything ^^;
