Hello everyone, I'm planning on cosplaying as an actual persona from the game Persona 3 and I've chosen to do Mitsuru Kirijo's persona, Penthesilia. Here's a picture: Click
. I've never made "metal/armor" looking clothing before but I've made "armor/metal-like" props and accessories. The questions that I have for making this costume are:
1. How could I properly make the corset (including the part extending over the hips, excluding the "cups")? I'll probably make it out of a thick cloth (duck cloth?) and cover over it with lame, if that's even possible. If anyone has better suggestions, please do tell.
2. Is it possible to dye stockings? As you can see, her stockings are blue, but there is a darker blue area at the top and down the center. I'm not sure I'll be able to make stockings myself.
These are the questions I have for now. I know how to make the head, crown, swords and the "cups" on the corset as well as the actual clothing parts.
Any suggestions for the corset and stockings would help! Thank you all for your time!
