Smile [Help] Making Gamagori Ira Cosplay





Hello friends!

First time poster here and first time Cosplayer wanting some advice/help on how to tackle making each component of the Gamagori Ira Black uniform cosplay especially the jacket/pants since I have no experience in sewing!.

I was originally going to buy a cosplay online however I don't think I can get money together in time for things to ship and I thought making it will be a more suitable challenge.

I'm not too phased on the armour parts as I found a tutorial on carving EVA foam and was going to use that as a basis to make the armor pieces, butttt I'll probably need ideas on how to attach those pieces to the clothing.

I was also wondering is the 3 star goku uniform difficult to make? Are there any patterns available online?? And what materials would you recommend using? I'm a complete beginner and have never made anything like this before aha!! So I'm open to all suggestions & Help!! (Lowkey also hoping I find someone I know personally who's good at sewing to help me)

I won't really have money for another 2-4 weeks to buy materials and the convention (Supanova Sydney) Is in around 2 months (yeha how exciting!)

So overall is it a realistic thing to works towards??

Many thanks in advance!!!

not able to help with outfit or timeline, but a few tips on the armour bits

if you get one of those really thin plastic cutting boards, heatshape, pad the underside,
you can use that on the inside of the outfit, to anchor the armour bits to
and should help keep them stable
as well as prevent holes and runs that youd get from only attaching it directly
to the outfit

youll get more balance/support by having the band of spikes
and the band of pyramid studs that run tward the neck
a singular piece,
(but not the ring around the neck that will cause issues,and should be "trim" like the part at the waist but flat)

for the gauntlets the armour bit wraps around at palm level
and may inclued thumbhole...
for comfort and simplicity just make it wrap around at the wrist (or just below)
the glove and armout can be 2 seperate pieces if you want

the boot pieces, for the front bit, either make an under plate that laces onto the shoe/boot
or use buttons on the armour bit, and fishline to tie it to the laces

the back bit im not too sure on, if your using a boot attaching to it should be fine
but a shoe or sandle may have too much movment between the ankle and calf

my thought is to strap it to the calf (using 2 straps more twards the top)
but as ive never had something there like that i dont know how that would work

easiest way to mock it up is with some cereal or soda box cardboard
then you can gauge how much rubbing or restriction of movment you get
each way to "mount" things

hope this helps a bit, luck

also, if this thread dont get more hits, wait a few days (wensday) and repost in sewing/fabrics

then quote my post as a reply (technically double posting) but efectively moving this thread into the sewing section

yes, ira gamagori is one on the primary characters of kill la kill

the outfit in question, i believe is from about the begining of the final 1/3 of the series

@Dictamnus Albus thanks for the tips with the armor!! i'll make sure to take note!! real big thank you hahaha I was starting to get worried nobody would reply to this so thank you so much!!

@thealins and up this is Gamagori from Kill La Kill hes a sorta weird character but I wanna cosplay him hahaha!!

I've still got a decent amount of time of planning ahead, I've just been asking around my friends/people I know for anybody who's decent at sewing because I'll probably need some help ngl. But thank you again for the help so far )
