thanks though guys ^-^;
I agree with what's already been suggested - the skintone bodysuit over your bound chest. That way, you could also paint Gan Ning's tattoos onto the bodysuit... a lot of Japanese cosplayers do that - it's an awesome effect!

Oh! I've seen girls cosplaying Sanosuke with their bandages raised to cover their chest, and it looks good, too! Either way, you're going to look brilliant!

Rydain's done an awesome Zhang He, and there are a lot of Zhen Ji cosplayers in the members' gallery.

I hope to be cosplaying Sima Yi sometime this year... if I can get the money together for all of his brocade and feathers. X_x

HuongStar-Melanie is right, there are quite a few Zhen Ji cosplayers in the galleries and a scattering of Zhang He's, one of which is Rydain's. I also remember seeing a Sima Yi and a couple of Zhang Liaos one or two years back.

I've been looking around at more binding stuff, and I figure I'll go with a skin colored leotard as suggested. I have a boyfriend who's an artist who offered to draw the tattoos on me (he will possibly do Ling Tong with me xD) so I got that taken care of. I'm still unsure if I should use ACE bandages, medical tape, or white elastic as the wrapping over the leotard though... If any of you guys have any other suggestions please let me know, but thank you again. ^-^

Also, any thoughts on how to make the gold snake patterned cloth on Gan Ning's (DW4) right thigh? x_X

Valgaav- Well, it seems extreme, but you could hand-paint all of the patterns on the fabric. It takes a while, but you have more control. All of my Zhu Rong costume is hand painted, and so is a good deal of MadameSolaris' Zhen Ji. (Both from DW5) You could also use stencils to aid the hand painting. I wouldn't recommend the fabric spray-paint, however. It's messy and not very practical.

Suzuka- Thanks for the tip. But is it just me, or does it look like some sort of silk cloth wrapped around rather than a painted on fabric? I want it to be as accurate as possible.. so yeah sorry lol. If I can't find any other way to do it, I may just paint it on regardless.

Valgaav - For my brother's Gan Ning leg wrap, I just used gold brocade with a dragon design on it... and it turned out okay.

But, in hindsight, I probably would have gone for a gold brocade with a maze design on it (it looks a lot more accurate) - http://www.gofabric.com/customer/pro...cat=284&page=1

Man, not unless I can get off my lazy ass and get something together. I wasn't planning on doing any Wei stuff this year, but then I heard you had plans with Dun.

Soo now I'm thinking about it. Maybe I could do Yuan and we could do the brothers? lol, I would need an alot of help with stuff though, since I suck at pretty much everything.

We need to hang out and talk about some ideas, yo!

I wish I could help but we're pretty overbooked already this year. So much of the DW stuff is detail-intensive so it would require so much time. The good thing about DW cosplay is that it isn't really timely/trendy so you can always take your time with making the costume.

I completely agree. Very detail-intensive. I'm heading to a fabric store Friday, 'cause I got an e-mail about a sale going on. So hopefully I'll get some stuff there. I think I'm just gonna stick with my original plan to get Wei Yan done as my first DW costume. We'll see how that goes.

Valgaav- Oops! I just now looked at a reference picture of Gan Ning, and it does indeed look like fabric tied about his leg. Sorry about that, my mind is not a reliable source of reference. And in reference to what Melanie said about the patterns, I agree. It looks more like that maze pattern than anything.

Yay! If all goes according to plan (yeah, right X_x), I should have my Ma Chao costume finished within the next week! And I hereby declare him the most traumatic costume I've ever made.

Aww man... TrigunWolf, I would love to cosplay alongside your Wei Yan!!!
