Hello so after a few months of deciding what my cosplay list for 2010 will be I have decided one of them will be Gloria. I have seen some excellent Gloria cosplayers here on coscom and well got inspried to try it myself. I have a 4 month deadline to complete this cosplay and I'm currently looking up patterns to alter. SO my questions for everyone here are 1)What materials should I use? (I'm thinking either matte stretch vinyl,satin, cotton lycra, stretch lace for the lace parts on the legs, or spandex) Question #2: How would I get the V-shape to be 'stable' so to speak so it's not going all over the place? Question #3: Any suggestions on patterns? (The only good one so far that I'm leaning towards is Kwik Sew 3052) Question #4: How would I got about try to have the appearance of 'no panties' but still for the love of sanity still be wearing some? Question #5: Any suggestions on how I should tackle the pauldrons and the collar? I thinks that's all of the questiions I have and here are a few ref. pics of Gloria:
P.S. I plan doing a mix of both the concept art and game image.
Thank you for any help or suggestions that are posted! ^_^
