Tales of The Abyss-Tear Grants-Help Please!!

Argh, everything about this costume seems way for complicated than it should be.

First of all, does anyone know of any Pattern for her dress? Since Tear has a colar almost as ridiculous as Sasuke's from Naruto, I think any advice on how to pull of Sasuke's could probably work for her's too???

I tried to go for something that should be easy to start with and that was the wig but I can't find a long enough wig in that hair color anywhere! I think this cosplay just wants to make it impossible for me D:

So if anyone's going to cosplay or has cosplayed Tear, any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

I will be cosplaying Tear in a few months, and I have yet to start the costume, but maybe I can help.

For the dress, I have a very simple dress pattern that I'm modifying to look like Tear's uniform. I'm making it longer with the side pieces seperate, and putting a zipper up the front. For the collar, just make it extra wide and line it with some stiff interfacing.

As for the wig, I'm not sure if I'm wearing one yet, because my hair isn't so different from Tear's and I already have to buy wigs for my other 2 cosplays, but maybe this one in Honey Sweet will work? If I do get a wig for Tear I'll probably use that one.

Hope that helps!

First off, SORRY FOR TAKING SO LONG TO REPLY D: I forgot that they dont email you when you get replies here.

Hmm, I think that I'll do that with the interfacing because it sounds like a good idea.

I never even saw that wig when I looked on the website!! Thanks a lot for all your help, good luck on your Tear costume too
