Hi, I lost a bet so i'll be cosplaying Gil. I'm forgoing the making the cosplay myself, so i'm buying it online. However, i am planning on useing my real hair for it so does anyone have any tips on getting my hair like his? My hair is usually straight so maybe a curling iron? ...does that work on short hair???

Also, so far I noticed Gil appears with a gun in some episodes...what kind of gun is it? (I've just started watching series due to bet so i'm a little clueless. )

Wow way to be a douche coscom...it took me 20 minutes to write a reply and then i click submit button and it had logged me off...>___> god I hate you.

Anyways...*cough*

@raelet: I like the idea of it being a nice fabric like satin. I found this Stretch satin at joann's a couple of months ago and now that's all I make stuff out of...well not always but for the most part. It has a shinyness to it without it being super shiny like most satin is.

For the coat I agree with hack7oriole about using twill, I made my gil coat out of twill and the good thing about it is that it keeps it's shape fairly well.

As for how to attach the coat I agree with the idea of sewing velcro, or you could add snaps to it as well.

@Ineedaname9: Why is Gil the punishment to losing a bet? D8 he should be the winning price

*cough* anyways

I also used my own hair for gil but mine does that weird seaweed dealio without even having it to style so it was easier for me. What I suggest is yea using a curling iron to make wavy strands. Not super curly though, his hair is messy and wavy. A lot of people go too insane with the curling iron from what I see O_O.

As for the gun, it's similar to this one http://www.amazon.com/Cavalry-Pistol...551759&sr=1-31 with a long cylinder and a short butt...of course it's different a bit because his has certain details on his gun.

I hope that helped! Now I'm going to try to submit this and pray to god that it goes through...

I just started B-Rabbit, and so far I have the head. =u=b
I bought the fur today, so I'll be sewing on the fur and making ears and gloves.

I'm planning to use her for a con in August, which may or may not be a bad choice, since it's gonna be hot. 8D;

Awesome! SO, I'm about 90% done with Break's clothing- I just have to hem the sleeves and add the black stripes to the tops of them.

I actually wound up using white denim for the coat itself and lining it in white, since that was the only material I found that didn't show the purple shirt underneath. Besides which, it makes it stiffer, which is how I feel the coat would be... For the top, I used a satiny-silk, but I'm probably going to wind up redoing it at some point- the ruffly collar HATES me and will not stay up, so I need to figure out how to fix that- I think I might just add a TON of interfacing, but I'm taking a break for a few weeks. Con isn't until August, after all XD.

I'll post some progress pictures soon! <3

Hi!! Good job on your cosplays.
I finished watching PH the second time...and I am starting again .

I am still kinda unsure . I am planning the black dress for Alice (in anime it seems black, but in another picture it's bluish ? ).
I didn't find many references except these:

http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/7452/78816094cs4.jpg
and from the anime http://cjblackwing.files.wordpress.c...pg?w=600&h=375

I really don't know what kind of fabric should I use and what color...I hate satins and other shiny stuff (so hard to sew) and it doesn't seem to be shiny in reality....

Uff.....any idea is appreciated guys . Please help a desperate person !

By any chance did a Jack Csoplayer buy their fabric online? I'm having a hell of a time finding a nice green. O_o

I was thinking of ordering this but I'm wooried the texture would not look good.

I want to finish the coat by July 8th so I need to order something now.

Also debating if I want to wear white or my tan pants that are a tad darker then this image.

I know this is late but I always thought of his coat as velvet x'D though it's really expensive.

Hello ! I've been looking everywhere but then... My computer's going to blow my internet usage if I had to check out every single page (I get only 3 Gb per month on Intermediate-speed)
- I need some help ! As I hopefully start sewing, I was wondering if anyone had a pattern for Alice's default costume ? I could do it by eye, but having some kind of guideline would be oh-so-help ! Also, I'd like some point of views: small painted diamonds on the sleeves or bigger ones (about 4-6) sewn on ?
- Another point I'd like to get to is: Someone made her scythe ? I've got some building advice to do it with wood, but I'm afraid that it'll be heavy or tiresome to carry it around for a full week-end. I'd like it to be accurate as possible but solid. Don't worry about materials, got it covered. Insulation foam was taken into account but I'm not sure if cardboard is the right thing for the blade, especially fixing it on the snath without it falling over.

@usagy-gaby : http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&se...earts#/d1x4cj4 Check it out ! Megathron used taffeta for her dress and it turns out pretty great (it's cheap too!). Maybe you can ask her for help ^^
