A few things (ravens, cage skirts and magic dragon tooth swords)
My sister and I have a small pile of fire emblem things to tackle and some of them I'm just not even sure of, so I may as well start from the top.
The falchion conundrum. My sister is cosplaying Marth. Using his DLC awakening design (we're aware she'll be mistaken for Lucina all day) the problem is that we don't know what design for falchion to use. Should we use the awakening one, or the classic one?
and, if it should be the awakening design, what the heck do you make it out of because I don't see that hole doing much for stability.
then there's the cage skirt. As I want to do Lissa. However I a only sort of sure of how to tackle her cage skirt. I was thinking of using steel boning like used for corsets for the hoops and then either more boning or silver toned ribbon depending on flexibility. But I'm not positive that corset boning is a sturdy enough material having never handled/used it before. What would you recommend I use?
and lastly, Naesala. Naesala is my definite favorite character and I'd love to cosplay him, the problem? I am a very effeminate looking girl and even though hes a magic bird man with long fabulous hair, I'm not a dude. So my question is, would gender bending him be silly? He's not exactly recognizable. So as a chick hes even less recognizable. And I get the feeling only HARD CORE LIVE AND BREATHE AND DIE fire emblem fans would recognize him- and that's when he's a dude. xD
So yup, help. Please. XD
