Hi there, everyone!
I'm almost finished with the costumes for my Soul Eater cosplay. I'll be going to MetroCon this year as Maka, and my fiancée will be going as Black Star. Unfortunately, I'm having a little trouble finding patterns/tutorials for Maka's vest, Black Star's boots or how to make his chain scythes super smooth and looking more like metal. I would normally refashion clothes/shoes that I already have. However, I've entered the costume contest, and 80% of the costume has to be made from scratch.
Any thoughts or suggestions, guys? Please help.
