A Few Symphonia Questions

Hey, so, my friend and I decided to do Lloyd and Zelos for an upcoming con; we've got about four weeks. I just wanted to ask a few quick questions.

~Lloyd's shirt. Not 100% how to make it so any tips there'd be nice, but that's not actually my concern. I'm not sure what kind of fabric to make it out of. I've looked around at Lloyd costuems to get an idea, and the one I REALLY liked the look of was a friend of mine's, who made hers out of a faux-leather. Seriously, looked amazing. But when I look at game art, and at the OVA and animated opening, it doesn't *look* like it's leather

So what kind of material should I use? Faux-leather, or something else and if so, what?

~I'm terrible with accessories. Anyone know where I can get his gloves and boots or at least good bases for them, epic. If not, I'll figure it out, I'm honestly more concerned with the shirt.

~Zelos' hair is giving us a little trouble too.

It curls a little bit at the bottom, but it's not SUPER curly. But we don't know how to get the volume we'd need without getting a curly wig. Any base wig suggestions?

Thanks for any help :3

Please use the Tales of Cosplay thread. They can probably help you out.

Sorry, my mistake.

Can I ask why there's a "Tales of Cosplay" thread, though ,when this whole subsection is meant to be just that?

I thinks it´s there so that there wont be alot of "small" threads, since everyone ask for different kind of help. And when the small threads are answered they become inactive = waste. Better to have a big thread for all Tales of, that´s active all-around.

That´s just my opinion.

Mainly because the ToC thread was created long before they restructured and organized the forums and gave "big-name" games or series a subforum within the Video Game parent forum. Basically it was a way for Tales cosplayers to ask questions and get specific advice without digging through 100+ threads about other games and specific character threads all mixed together in "Video Games".

Those 2K+ comments didn't just happen overnight. In its current structure what with a Tales Series subforum, the ToC thread is not as essential as it once was, but people have posted things in the ToC thread for so long I suppose it is habit to expect all communications to be found within that specific thread. :3

Basically, we're being stubborn about something that's no longer terribly relevant. Because that's how we roll. ^_^

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.
