Hello all, I am looking for a tutorial on how to make Imitation Black Len Kagamine and a tutorial on how to make the top for Heart Hunter Miku.

I have a pattern for the basic dress for Imitation Black Len, but I don't know how to add the teirs to the skirt part of the dress, I don't know how to do the train, and I don't know how to do the sleeves with the dress being strapless.

For Heart Hunter Miku, I don't know how to make the top with the sides, front, and back open like that without it looking bad, the open heart in the front, the collar attached to the shirt like that, the wings, the tail, and what I'm assuming is a garter attached to the socks.

If you would like reference pictures for these cosplays, let me know, I'll gladly provide them. I want to get these cosplays done for January, that's when I'm going to my next con.

Yes please, pictures would help. Usually ruffles are long strips trimed, hemmed and gathered and then sewn to the skirt before the waistban is added to the skirt. Look in a sewing book for better insturctions. The sleeves can be made by putting elastic in the top and or use body glue. The same with garters. They have elastic in them and that's how they say up. I'm sorry, but without a picture I'm working blind.

Tron clothing normally seems to involve a lot of EL wire and EL tape, but there seem to be quite a few tutorials for that on youtube

Hey everyone,
I'm doing a toughy- Lexaeus's weapon from Kingdom Hearts.
I've convinced my dad to cosplay, and out of all the Orgy 13 members he chose the least cosplayed and hardest looking >.< Any advice or redirection to another thread or a tutorial would be appriciated.

I'm sure there isn't a tutorial for Lexeaus' weapon. I've looked all over for all the members weapons, but I can tell you a good light weight way to do it. I haven't done THAT weapon myself, but it will work the same as my Buster Sword Tutorial made of insulation foam. I can also tell you a god cardboard method that will be harder to do, and a tad heavier, but it won't be as fragile.
If you want to know, you can PM me.

Thanks Jason- You're the god of props and wigs. I see your stuff everywhere XD
I'll try to model it using your Buster Sword tutorial. (I've tried to make a keyblade out of cardboard with Featherweight's tutorial. Let's just say, that material is NOT my friend XD)

Thank you ^_^
I love his stuff though but I have been using cardboard for years doing other things..

But you are gonna want to do the bid part with the "x" on it (the part right above the handle) out of a separate piece..I can show you how to make this with little drawings. It's actually easy once you get it..But PM me if you want to know that part as to not clog the thread.

I'm looking for a tutorial for the Highschool Of The Dead uniform... Particularly the top. It's like an odd mixture of a sailor fuku and a button up shirt. Any help would be much appreciated~ :3

I'm completely new to cosplaying and prop-making literally but for my first con I wanted to go as Nanoha. I have my outfit being custom made but it won't be complete without Raising Heart. Right now I'm having trouble on finding commissioners to make the prop. Is there any easy-to-follow tutorial on making this myself?

Heres a pic of it http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21.../device_rh.png

Looking for a how to on making bag wings like Morrigan's from Dark Stalkers and how to keep them on my hips (I would probably use a headband for the ones on her head) just unsure how to keep the structure of the ones on her hips on there and to keep it from flopping around.

Exclamation Need help with Black Star cosplay from Soul Eater!!!

Hey all! I need help in both deciding and making my cosplay for Black Star. I'm cross dressing either a regular version(anime) or a manga version. I think the manga one would be cooler but I hope people will recognize it though. I either want to do his outfit from Spartoi or his outfit in shadow star first form chain of blackness so I can make the cool scythe the Spartoi one is def easier to make.
Spartoi: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...id_Spartoi.jpg
(manga outfit)

Shadow Star:
http://souleater.wikia.com/wiki/Shad...n_of_Blackness (regular outfit cool sycthe)

I need ideas for the cosplay. Mainly for his regular one because his outfit is a bit complex. For example the pants are like shorts and sweats at the same time so I guess I could do something like that. I'm a newbie when it comes to cosplaying. His shirt is the annoying one with the ninja like cone around his neck like Sauske. There's also the sliver lining for his belt and shirt. Not to mention I should do something for his gloves too. I would make the scythe out of cardboard and paper mache then paint.

This is why the Spartoi is easier with plain colors and stuff. But I just want some ideas from people who are pro at this Feel free to share this with others.

For future referance you can click on the "search this thread" option at the top of the thread. In this case it wouldn't have done any good. I got no hits. Unfortunately, without a picture I can't help...

Try the above thread. Also, search Morrigan Aensland under props/accessories/armor and you'll get several more options.

I don't understand the confusion. The first pic is what I'm going off of...It looks like he is wearing a long scarf wrapped several times, a sleeveless tee and capi sweatpants.

Under the wigs and hair try the sub forum:wigs and hair FAQ's line. Search for dyeing, non-heat, resistant and you'll get six options.
