Thanks for your response, princemercury. Where would the best place be to buy cheap fabric? Also, forgive my ignorance, but I'm not quite clear on what you mean by using an interface for the collar. Are you referring to post-timeskip Law or Law before the timeskip?

For his collar it pretty much stands up for his Time skip coat. You use really stiff interface to keep the collar standing up. Interface is material u put between the fabric and lining of the collar and you can pick it at a fabric store. As far as the fabric, Joann's is always nice! They always mail off coupons every two weeks and they can range from 40%-60%. Hancock's is ok, but they have the best vinyl, pleather fabric that you can use for your costumes and you can possibly find a coupon online from them.

Also, if you have a smartphone, you can download Joann's app. They have coupons that you can use at the register with your phone--I see often 40% off total purchase or single item (including a single-cut of fabric).

A general go-to fabric for mock-sewing is Muslin. It's usually by the cottons in Joann. Actually, this week their Roc-Lon Muslin is on sale (along with a bunch of their other fabrics)--I just bought seven yards, some which will be used for my Nami cosplay.

If you get a moment, go to Joann this week and take advantage of the deals c:

Oh hey! I can't believe I never found this thread before! XD I cosplay 2 outfits of Nami's, and will eventually be making one of Nico Robin's outfits. My bf cosplays Luffy with me, and will also be doing Zoro.

At A-Kon a couple of weeks ago we saw SO MANY One Piece cosplayers, it was crazy!

I'm still working on watching all the episodes though, I'm a late starter with this anime, I think I'm only in the 200s, haha. So I may have more people I wanna cosplay as I go through the anime >_>

Don't buy one of the cheap straw hats from one of the random Chinese vendors. The hat will be ridiculously small and bright yellow (instead of a duller straw color).

What I ended up doing was as follows:
1)Find a normal straw hat (ebay/thriftstore/etc) that fit my size requirements
2)Buy a spool of red ribbon/fabric
3)Use a hotglue gun to put the fabric onto the hat

Bam! You have your own strawhat! (You can see what mine looks like in my photo album).

Sorry if this isn't the right place for this question but I'm new here... I searched the forums trying to find a group that is going to DragonCon this year that would be interested in doing some One Piece characters but I haven't found anything. Am I just not looking in the right place or is there really no organized group that is going to DragonCon this year? Thanks for any advice/help!

Hey guys! Just wanted some opinions...

What do you think of girls with less.. err... assets cosplaying as the women of One Piece?

I'm planning a Boa Hancock cosplay, but, unfortunately, I don't have a J-cup or anywhere close to that! I actually told my boyfriend I would and he was like "You mean this?" -.-

Personally, I think it does affect the cosplay (but I'm a perfectionist u_u;... so what about you guys?

Well, all the girls in One Piece have pretty exaggerated woman bits! (There's not a whole lot of girls with a J-cup, right?)

And if you look it up:

...Plenty of lovely cosplays even by those who aren't so 'blessed'!

If it does bother you though, what about padding and makeup? You can squish your boobs closer together and pad the outsides, or use makeup to emphasize your cleavage!

I definitely don't have Nami's bra size, but I used a padded push up bra and some gel inserts to make it look like I do (or at least almost, haha).
