Type in tutorial on aging weathering props in a search engine. You should find all you need. Several good ones when I googled.

Not sure what kind of breast plate armor your looking for. Googling cosplay breastplate tutorial brought up a lot of female armor for like wonder woman and fem thor.


For both questions, this site is killer for the prop side of cosplay:http://www.therpf.com/

Roronoa Zoro Post-Timeskip cosplay tutorial

Hello everyone,
I am planning on making a Roronoa Zoro post-timeskip cosplay, from One Piece, but I have no clue where to get started. I've searched the web for tutorials or even templates, and have been unsuccessful until now. I would greatly appreciate it, if someone could direct me to a post, or something of the sort, that can help me with my problem. Thank you to any and all

(attached pic for further detail)

Hey, can anyone point me towards a few good tutorials for putting a long wig in a very high ponytail? I got a black Jasmine Wig from Arda, but it was used and therefore taken out of it's preset ponytail. I brushed it out and tried to tie it up again, but no matter how I worked it, it always tangled again- meaning I had to try and brush it, and brushing it messed up the tension of the hair on the cap, and made bumps and whatnot in it, making it even more messy looking. I've heard of a technique called stumping. Can anyone point me in that direction perhaps?

I'm very inexperienced with wigs. ^^" Thanks

Edit: Oh! I forgot to mention, clip on ponytails are not an option for how I want this costume to be. Its for this character: Tsubaki from Soul Eater.

Vader Sound Effect.

This is less of a cosplay question and more of a DIY accessory question, but It could help out cosplayers non the less.
So on to the item, I want to add a Darth Vader sound effect to a respirator. I have an audio clip and some knowledge of electronics so what I'm looking for is the most cost effective way to rig a speaker (or two) to a board that plays the effect constantly. I know I could take an mp3 player and rig up some speakers to a 3.5 mm plug and work it that way, but that'll kill most batteries within a single day and I'm not sure it'll be as loud as I want it. I want the most cost effective, longest battery life, and easiest to rig and maintain options. If all else fails and I've gotta rig an mp3 and custom speakers, I'll take some pics and show you guys how I did it, I just want a better way to go about doing it.

Hi! Urm, well I guess I need two tutorials. I'm fine for the rest of the outfits but I'm looking for a tutorial of how to make Mirai Kuriyama's blue top for her school outfit. (from Beyond the Boundary.)
I have the skirt and cardigan covered, I just need a tutorial for her top! ^^

Also I was wondering if anybody has a tutorial on Taiga's school jacket. (Toradora)
I found a general jacket tutorial which I can modify but I was just hoping for a spesific tutorial to make my life easier~
Please and thank you!

This ones a little easier then you think, but hard if you don't know how to do the things needed..The jacket I would use a basic princess seam tutorial since it's nice and fitted, then make it longer and taper like it does in the front.So this:
http://img0.etsystatic.com/004/1/614...30248_jqqn.jpg
Then make the front taper.
Then cut the sleeves outta the equation, and cut the < and > shapes out of the top near the collar (where the soul gem sits) and make the collar taper in the front and put a hook and eye there to close it because you are going to sew the front up rather then make it a button up, then you would add a hidden zipper in the side under one of your arms (put in on your side of your dominate hand, much easier haha). If you WANT you can make it a front closure. I think it's suppose to be one, but they just didn't add the seam for animation purposes..Your call there Then the hard part..Adding the ruffles..Look up how to do them in general to give you an idea. Then add them, them sew on white bias tape for all the edging and your done.

If you go into the prop forum, there are a few threads with a few different methods posted. Use the search function and search for the character or series and the threads should come up.

In fact, I just did a search since I'm really bored..
hEre is all threads inthe prop forum when iI searched Nymph:

I kinda need the Mirai one too, but Mine will be to Mitsuki Nase..They wear the same one..My pic of mitsuki will give you a reference to both of our characters since Mirai wears a sweater over hers and it's hard to see..

I've been on the search for this, and instead of a solution, I have a pattern you can lengthen;

Burda 7115, on part B's pattern has the buttons, pockets and buttons in all the right places. I'd say to add about 3 inches to the bottom (depending on body length,) and instead of the collar being folded over, leave that smooth to have the v-neck and use the sailor collar tutorial on site with tabs to pin or tuck under the top and the white panel can have a snap to secure the front together. Attach buttons and snaps where needed.
