The Harvest Moon Cosplay Thread

I just went through all 5 pages of this forum and didn't find a Harvest Moon cosplay thread so I'm making one.

This is just for general Harvest Moon cosplay Tips or Questions.

I have a 2 questions:

Does anyone know where to get overalls like Claires:

And does anyone know a good pattern for Nami's Shorts:

(It looks to me like they go a little bit below the knee and thats what I'm looking for)

You can get them at JCpenny or Sears for Claire overalls and Nami shorts in the boy section for those kind of pants.

Thanks, I forgot to look at Sears. As for Nami's shorts, I'll probably end up making them.

I totally support this thread. Harvest Moon needs more cosplay <3.

Claire's overall's: I usually see a lot of overalls at thrift stores. For my friend's Jack cosplay, we just picked some from a thrift store and stitch-ripped off the Old Navy patches and logos.

Short patterns are really easy to find. Here's the first one I found. These shorts would be another real easy thrift find though.

Thanks for the help. I'm probably gonna go to Goodwill or something for the overalls but I might use your idea. It seams pretty nifty and easy. As for the pattern problem: I've never actually used patterns before and I barley know what they are or where to look for them. I'll probably use my own pattern that I make for it so that it fits perfect and I can only blame myself for messing it up.

Another question, Can I buy elastic bands (Like the stuff in shorts) at craft stores like Joanns and Michaels or will I have to rip up some shorts to get the band?

Joann's carries elastic in many widths and a few colors, finding the elastic you need shouldn't be a problem.

Yay! Sorry if I sound like a total newbie. I swear I'm not! I've just always bought my cosplays and this is my first time making one.

Also Merodi, welcome to the thread. I love Harvest Moon aswell which is why I'm cosplaying from it XD!

I cosplayed Katy/Katie from Harvest Moon STH and the brown-haired main girl (sorry don't know the name <<...) from Harvest Moon DSC with Imari-Chan as Skye

I'm planning to do more, since Harvest Moon is so awesome! I've always dream of cosplaying a HM character and going to a farm ;X.

Id really like to do a photoshoot on a farm! That would be a great idea. Maybe when we have all finished our HM cosplays we could go for a photoshoot!

Yay! Harvest Moon <3 One day I want to try cosplaying Celia.

For Nami's Shorts I really do recommend buying them instead of trying to make them. It'll probably save you money in the long run. Especially if you aren't in a hurry, when summer is over stores usually have lots of sales to get rid of their summer stuff.
