You can get heavyweight interfacing--for yuna...i think iron-on interfacing would be easier to deal with

I've also read that some people used wire or cardboard to keep the obi up. For mine i just used doulbe layers of heavyweight interface

Hope this helped <3

this page they're 10-14 inches long and 9.50 per 1/4 pound. Feathers are pretty light you might get like 500 or so maybe more? I dunno how much exactly maybe if you email them and ask.

Feathers are REALLY light. One pound of feathers seems like WAY too much. Usually when you see packs of feathers sold they are only 10g max.

However since you're after the long turkey feathers your best bet is to contact them directly to get a quantity quote.

For the obi and sleeves ... even though it looks nice ... regular fabric could work too ... but I found out that my obi was a little hmm "floppy" or "thick" after I finished with it. My sleeves however looked decent.

For the staff ... I'd say measure its proportions to yourself ... nothing bothers me more than an unproportioned weapon when I see a BEAUTIFUL cosplay that possibly cost A LOT of money to make.

For pictures of what I did, and how it looks decent you can see http://www.geocities.com/shainaindov...Holloween.html ...

I'll probably have them uploaded to my domain soon, but for now, why not use geocities' bandwidth?

you know i changed my mind about the feathers:
http://www.featherplace.com/ic/fp/AGS.html

these seem like an alright size...
1/4 of a pound gets me 750 feathers O_O

i know Yaya used 600 feathers...but these feathers aren't selected...so i might have to toss some O_o plus...i want to be more accurate and have the two layers of feathers...

and i might still want a 1/4 of a pound for the turkey feathers...for the wings... that would be like 60 feathers O_o

and IF i have leftovers...

i was planning on giving some to heki and selling them on ebay

I was wondering what you would make the flower on the front of her obi out of. I'm thinking of colored foam, but I was wondering if there was a better way, like maybe paper mache?

1) Yuna's staff should come up to about your chest, so proportion that to fit with your height. ^^ The staff head looks a bit larger than her head.

It's better to do it with craft foam. I personally prefer to paint the entire flower to get the right colors, than draw the design on with brown sharpie. Here's progress picture of the one I did for Kakashi101 if it helps

this is correct, but it can be difficult to mesure correctly; and often something that is correct on paper doesnt work in reality.
it should be aproximatly 3/4 of your height.
the materials used can alter the scale. mine is made mostly of unberella pieces and cardbord which made correct scaling difficult.

pelmet vyleen is excelent for the flower thing; its strong but flexable, can be a pain to paint and con come in a variety of colours. i made it in two sections, thw outer flower and inner circle, painted with acrylic and sewed them together

ok. this kind of pertains to FFX-2 Yuna, but I figured I'd post it here anyways.

I am currently working on a Black Mage Yuna. I know how to make the hairtail, but I've got an issue attaching it to my hair. I know some people who do it by putting on an elastic hairband, and ponytailing it on.

MY hair is cut REALLY short in the back.
so I have no idea how to pull off this sucker.

When I did it I used a combo of elastic, and two very large hairclips. My hair was pretty short too, but it's also unbelievably thick (I have never had my hair cut without hearing that from the stylst XD ) so that might not work so well if your hair is thin.

Since it's Black Mage Yuna you COULD attach it to the hat. It's supposed to sag in the back anyways. It would really depend on the total weight of the tail.

But all-in-all people never seem too adamant on critiquing the exact placement of the tail. Just whether or not it's there, and not just sewn onto the shirt. (I've seen way too many songstresses who've done that one -_-; )

Well...unfortunately for me, my hair is exceedingly thin. Dx I'll try it...

The hat? I could do that, but I want to have the hairtail attachable to my head, because it'd be fun to wear around school and stuff...see the reactions I get...

Texas schools have bans against attachable hair pieces like that. *looked at your profile, and lives in good 'ole Tx. personally* and you could always just pin it on to a Hoodie. Other than that I can only suggest growing your hair out.
