Hi! This is the first Cosplay outfit I am making, so I apologise for asking so many questions and being specific, but I really need help because no one around my area is able to teach me.
The cosplay is for a video game character (Da Qiao in Dynasty Warriors)
Here's the front of the dress for my character. I am wondering whether the gold should be painted on somehow (if so, with which kind of paint materials? or sewn on with gold material. Also there are metal bits with chains on the sides. What materials can make the metal bit, and how can I attach the chain part to the metal bit and then the metal bit to the dress?
For the shoes, I am wondering whether it would be best to get a pair of shoes that look like these and then work on them. If I so, how to I get the material on? Should it be sewn or glued? If I am going to make the shoes by scratch, what materials should be used and how should they be put together?
This is the weapon. I don't know what to use to make the crystal shape at the end, and say if I am using a baton as a base, how I am meant to attach this large crystal on the baton without it falling (there is a crystal on both ends)
This is the hat, and it has lots of metal bits at the top. What material could I make them out of, and also how can I attach them to the hat without them falling off?
I appreciate any answers. Thanks for reading~
