What I usually do with my rat tail o' doom is attach it to the back of the costume with safety pins. That way, it's attached to something much stronger and with a greater surface area, so the weight isn't all in one place. So in your case, I'd go with Anna's suggestion of attaching it to the hat, but also attaching it to the back of your costume, so the tail doesn't pull at your hat.

Oh, and for the wedding updo question -
I had something similar to Yuna's updo done for my prom (except it was curly instead of straight). I remember the whole trick was to use multiple pony tails, all placed around a center point where a normal high ponytail would be, and then extra hair from around the sides of these ponytails had been left out before, and were then used to cover up the hairbands, and pinned into place. Then, all you'd have to do is straighten the ponytails and use wax to spike them out.

(Although, I'd just go with Yuna's idea and buy a hair attachment. XD)

if you want, using felt for the flower on her obi won't pull out the fabric and rip, and you can fabric paint the design on. it worked well enough for me (for my first ever con-costume) so hopefully that's a less pricey option...

I"m also doing the ffx-2 hair tail and I'm following this tutorial
http://kairi-g.livejournal.com/2188.html

But the thing is, I have no idea what piping filler cord is. Can anyone tell me where I can buy one? I was thinking hardware stores like Orchard Supplies or Home Depot or Lowe's, but I'm not sure. >.<

It's a cotton rope used to fill things out for sewing basically. It comes in a lot of diameters, and such, but will basically just look like a rope but made with a lot more fibers.

Also you might get a better answer than what I've said if you try asking what it is in the General costume help section, since it's more of a sewing notions question rather than a specific costume question.

Can someone help me on dyeing my armbands for Summoner Yuna?

I've never dyed anything before and I only have until Saturday to finish, so I only have one shot at it.

How much dye/water should I use? Should I use a bucket, or a spray bottle?

Thanks!

You should be able to at least fill a LARGE spray-bottle twice with your mix. Make sure to practice on some scrap fabric first to make sure the color isn't too strong, though it should still be pretty bright when you're spraying.

Yuna Sleeves

So i see one could possibly spray dye onto Yuna sleeves? How does this work? I'm no good at dyeing? Also is it not possible to just soak the fabric an inch in the dye and the dye crawl up the fabric creating a gradient? I havens the slightest? Also Suggestions on type of fabric to use? I'm no seamstress. :-\ i was thinking some kind of cotton but i have no idea what weave or weight.... So much to think about. Thanks everyone!

Question:
I'm making Yuna's Summoner outfit and an wondering what to do about the obi's designs. It's been suggested that I paint them on, but I was wondering what the pros and cons of fabric paint are, how long it lasts and the like.

Don't use 3d fabric paint, it gives this nasty shiny look and overall just does not fit well. I would suggest using regular acrylic paint and a fine paintbrush. Try using a pencil to trace the the entire design first!! Then keep that fine point paintbrush constantly clean and you should have a nice clean look.

I used 3d fabric paint, and I absolutely refuse to take it out. It looks bad D:

I'm planning on making a gun mage Yuna costume. Anyone know any patterns/materials? I'm pretty experienced with sewing, and I've used quite a few different fabrics. I'd be so grateful if you guys could help me out ^^

I don't know about acrylic paint, but I used nonpuffy, matte fabric paint. You can find it at michael's.

Does anyone know how to attach the pair of strings that wrap around Yuna's obi? I'm adamant against attaching them by glue.

Songstress side-skirt

Hello all!
I am getting ready to work on a songstress Yuna cosplay. The most perplexing question is how to attach the side skirt and how to make it.
It looks like kind of loose Us that have been gathered at the top and attached in tiers.
Anyone have good advice?
