I'm not sure, but I have found a tutorial for box pleats that are most likely to stay.
Here's the Tutorial
I haven't really tried it myself, so It'd be best to make a mock-up skirt first.

Ah i see, kinda easy to understand. It'll help to practice. =) I'm going to check with my extra cotton fabric and see how well they hold the pleats XD

I'm going to be cosplaying Len Kagamine at Anime Boston with my friend who is going to go as Rin Kagamine, and another friend of mine who will be Meiko. I'll post my progress on my costume here as I go along :3.

In the immediate, though, does anyone know of a good wig that could be used for Len? I haven't read through the entire forum, and for that I apologize but anyhow. I'd really appreciate the help! And I'd love to hear how your costume comes out, Jolteh!

I had recently wrote a mini-tutorial on Len's wig..I'll just repost it considering that people on this thread keep asking.


FOR LEN'S WIG:
I've had many people email me asking where I get my wigs, what I do to style them, ect.
ESPECIALLY WHEN I POSTED MY LEN COSPLAY
.....
What you need is a wig that has a ton of volume/hair [I put in extensions], and is short/medium length to begin with. If you start with a medium wig that's slightly too long, trim it to your liking and make the extra hair into a ponytail that can be attached.
For the bangs, I used hair putty..not Got2B or anything, I've never seen the stuff in my life. Hold the pieces of hair up, run through it with a comb, add product, hair spray, and then use a hair-dryer to make sure the spikes defy-gravity. The blow-dryer and hairspray really helped me with the ponytail, I don't think it'll ever sink, unless if I get pushed into a pool XD.

So that's how I did it..I already had the wig from CosWorx for a Roxas cosplay, I eventually added many extensions..and after Len's first debut, I need to restyle the wig because I've become unhappy with it's appearance XO.

I HOPE THIS HELPED~


for the outcome of my wig/Len cosplay, just check my gallery.

I think I started off with an Alicia S in 24B Butterscotch Blonde from Cosworx.com?

Tartan!

But seriously, that's the only one that I personally know of. Of course, I haven't really looked intodoing pleats for a outfit or anyting, other than for a kilt (I always wanted one. I love plaid.).

Hey guys, I'm back again! While Miku is on Hold right now (It's because I'm lazy and I have a few other cosplays to plan out/make xD) I've decided to do Mikuo (Actually seriously, not that random thing I threw together xD) So I'm gonna do the Variation with the short sleeves (This One) But I'm not gonna do that hairstyle xD I'm thinking about getting a new wig, because of the Thanksgiving sale and such. And because his hair looks different then the base wig on my Miku wig now that I think about it. And since Cosworx's Seafoam green is weird and enjoys being either green or blue then I'm gonna go with that since it's juts like the fabric for the trim and stuff that I have xD
BUT ANYWAYS xD
What kind of pants do you think would work? Since I can't really see it that well and all I was thinking of just regular black pants but I'm not sure if I should go for a certain style.

Um... I seriously recommend you change your link, PunkRockPanic... that page has NSFW adds ^^;; Just noticed when I clicked the link. Use this one

And I think that the pants would look good as long as they aren't jeans and as long as they are baggy. =3

@Chris-chan: Tartan? I'll look into it, thank you! =)

@Chibi: Thanks, I changed it xD I couldn't the get the stupid link to have just the picture alone @_e

EDIT: I actually decided to just use my Miku base wig, I forgot how AWESOME I look with it on xD Even though they have the sale, I'd like to save money, so no new Mikuo wig for me.
Uh...I can't seem to find any tie patterns (I've done a couple searches...no luck @_@) Can Anyone help, please?

You're not gonna want to use tartan. Tartan is the plaid that they use for Kilts. I know this cause I was looking into doing a Kilt. If you need something pleated that needs a heavy fabric and is plaid, use tartan.

And Punk, for pants I would think a pair of black Dickies would go really well. They're pretty close to the leg, but still loose, which seems to fit Mikuo's style.

@chris-chan: Ah, alright! Thank you =P I just don't know much about fabric types since I'm a newbie when it comes to sewing XD

Eh, i didn't buy anything from the sale either... I have to pay the rent of my dorm, so I can't spend much money until classes are over @o@
