So I've decided to take on a Sanji cosplay (since I think he's funny, and I haven't crossplayed in a while).

I want to do Skypeia Sanji (as I'm planning this for a summer cosplay picnic...and a majority of Sanji's costumes are NOT summer friendly) and the only thing I am having trouble trying to plan out is his flower circles of doom on the shirt.

See what I'm talking about?? So I think I'm going to approach it by buying a pink dress shirt and then making a stencil out of foamcore and using fabric paint to paint the designs on. What do you guys think??

@Ramen Pirate; OTAKONNN! I want to go. ;_______;
Future fun sounds good! I plan to! But IDK if the plans will go through.
Do you plan on going to AX? ALA? SDCC? LOL. xD

@Pancake; That sounds like a good idea! I was going to do the same if I ever did a Skypeia version of Sanji. Maybe try running the test on a scrap fabric first before you really do it on the pink shirt.

@Lady; Maybe try looking at The Rocky Horror Show and at the character Frank. Oda took his inspiration from that for sure. xD Other than that I can't help you.

I finished up my luffy cosplay and am just working on the hat. I was wondering if I should add a string to his hat like he has in some parts of the series. Has anyone else cosplayed him and made the string part in his hat? Also how big should i make the red ribbon in his hat? Thanks!

I've unfortunately decided to give up on cosplaying as Emporio Ivankov (not that he isn't a cool character, it's just that I seriously can't see myself being able to pull off a cosplay like that - especially since he's got the 'bare-chest' look).

So... I've come up with a better (& under-cosplayed) idea = 'Iron Mace' Alvida!

(and I'm talking about how overweight she was before eating the Slip-Slip Fruit)

Awwwww, sorry to hear that Lady Shinsei! Alvida is awesome, no matter which form she's in! It'll be awesome!

Sanji progress: A little. Mostly research and such. It's almost friggin impossible to find a pink, short sleeve, dress shirt (at least at my Thrift store). I found one at JCPenneys (or Belk...one of the two) and it cost frigging 30 dollars! (And that was AFTER the special TAKE 50% OFF ORGINAL PRICE)...I might do a long sleeved one (since those seemed to be cheaper and in larger supply) and just cut off part of the sleeves (Maybe I can use the scraps for painting practice for the flower doom circles...but I don't think I'll cut off sleeves until I know how the fabric will react...or have an idea.). I wish I was skizzled (skilled) enough to make a shirt like that, grrrrrr.

I also found goggles on the interwebs that are just like his (sort of). The frames are black and the strap is also black. I'll just paint it orange. I might be able to make some sort of paper mache or fun foam sort of cover for the strap that will still allow it to stretch but be that wierd bulkyish leathery thing strap.

Does anyone know if Sanji wears a long sleeve red shirt at some point in the series? For some reason I can see it in my mind's eye that he does, but I don't actually think so. I might have seen it in some fanart or something, so I might just be crazy, lol.

@himepanda: I did a quick search and found this thread from last year: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=181260
It looks pretty useful, so it may help you.

I really only have like 3 cons lined up so far. Otakon, of course, Star Wars Celebration V, and Anime USA are all for sure.
Anything else, I don't really knowwwww!! Haha

I couldn't tell you exactly, cuz I did a trial and error.
Started large, and just began cutting it down till I finally thought it looked right.
And the string? I had it on originally, but it got annoying after a while.
Haha. I guess it really depends on whether or not you'll be wearing it on your back or your head! I'd say try it, and if you don't like it, you could always take it off, eh?

I stuck a string on mine because the hat was too small and it was good to have it off my head sometimes. When you're wearing the hat properly you can put the string behind your head so it can't be seen in photos, that's what I did. That being said, Luffy with the hat on is much more iconic, so if you can it's best to wear the hat most of the time.

You could always do the full-cloaked version! http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...nd_Ivankov.jpg
