I am! Well, I think I am. xD; I am probably going to make my own piping and do that, but I still need a pretty fabric. ;3;

I'm being Ginga Bishounen (Galactic Prettyboy) for Anime NEXT in June. And I'm going to have way too much fun singing my youth out.

Making your own bias tape is preferred. as for fabric I was having the same problem with another costume and decided to use gold Gimp over gold spandex that I could find.

I've seen gold PVC used on other costumes as well.
And here's a site that sells military trim.

That's a good idea about the Matador pattern.
They stopped making this one >_<

Found some military uniform patterns. Not cheap but not easy to find.

@Anibee: Matching his stupid gold tassles with the military cords with the bias is going to be murder as I realized yesterday at the fabric store.

I thought I could sew gimps as a seudo bias but nope, he has these derp corners: http://www.zerochan.net/src/zerochan...ver.305025.jpg on the coat.


FYI to everyone, his weird tassels are called bullion fringe in-case you need to search for it on google.

Don't remind me of the over simplification anime/manga dose to tailoring details. >_<
You can find iron on corner appliquesonline but the best research you can do it on your own is to look up historical British military uniforms seen in the movies for idea on how these translate into real life.

Yes I'm am all love for bullion fringed epaulets!

I've decided to make golden bias tape rather than buy any of the existing options available right now. Can anyone recommend me a fabric that I can find a shiny golden in and make it into bias tape? The lady at Joanns suggested vinyl but how do you make vinyl into bias tape? I thought you were suppose to iron the self made bias tape. Help D8

Well now, I'm making the bias tape too. But we all need to have our bullion fringe, cords, and bias all be the same color of gold.

The only thing I could really find is a spool of 'DS SPARKLE SATIN GOLD 2' by Casa Collection at Joanns to match the fringe and cord they have in the home decor department.

I know it's not SUPER RAZZLE DAZZLE GALACTIC SHINE gold but a more subtle tone.
http://thecartdriver.com/wp-content/...7-Large-24.jpg
Finding matching fringe, cord, and whatever fabric/ribbon in his yellow would be wicked hard.

I'm going to buy some yellow iDye Poly from Joann's tomorrow and try to die my samples. Hopefully the already satin gold tones will pop more with the dye (polyester hates my face). I'll post my results soon.

*******
As for his boot-thigh things. If you look closely, they're not red, but a rasperberry color. I feel like this: http://www.syfabrics.com/View.aspx/F...-Vinyl/568/225 would be better than those other sites (plus, it's in stock). What do you guys think?
Ref: http://i55.tinypic.com/ff4ivn.jpg
I would also use the same material for his belt of pointlessness.

Is anyone else making the school uniforms? If so what type of fabric do you recommend for it, let alone finding it in the right color? And suggestions on the tie?

I've seen it done but you can't iron crisp folds with it and you have to top stitch it.

It's part of the reason I went with Gimp cord.

I've already made a couple, I went to the LA Fashion district to find the right color fabric, and it took most of our day to get a color that works, and honestly I still think its a shade too dark.http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/f/20...tk-d37bif4.jpg

There's a pic from ALA Also went a couple shades darker with the ties probably going to remake them. Since our Sugata isn't pleased with how hers came out. Would rather not since that would mean I have to remake our Takuto's and my Wako one which was really easy.

not too dark but yeah it is a bit off the color. I thought they look well constructed when I saw pictures of you guys. <3

@Tsukeru: I would go with Twill really...that's what i'm planning on doing for mine.

I got my wig also from fantasy sheep just the normal takuto wig, no blonde haha since I don't actually like that wig from fantasy sheep but man the red takuto wig is soooo soft...I might post photos soon just to show you guys the awesome shade of red it has.

As for the bias tape, I decided to normal golden bias tape and put a fancy trim over it so the bias tape all around has two shades of golden...what do you guys think?

This one just came out. Problem is it's too small if you have a big head from my experience from there wigs. Their display model it tiny and miss giving.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Star-Driver-Kaga...em3a61ec 3a77


There base style line wigs are meant for larger head and have larger wig cap area. Here's one style I have that fits a bit smaller the the one looks like linked above. It also comes in red shades and yellow.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Wig-Changable-bl...em3cb3be cd9c


Twill is very nice fabric to work with for military uniforms and dusters. Problem is it a blended fabric and dose not take to dyes very well if you use a naturals fabric dye (you can get tints shades however). IDYE Poly come in a golden yellow shade but I don't have access to this line to do test with my scrap Old Navy Twill.

I seem to think buying a wig should be annoying, use your own hair if you have it
Like I am going to probably cosplay as Takashi Dai, in his school uniform, without and maybe in his Glittering Star Uniform

I will be cosplaying Mizuno's casual and school uniform at some point this year. I am really excited about it.

Not quit accurate but here's the first akuto Galactic Pretty Boy cosplay I've seen for sale.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Star-Driver-Taku...em483edb 60a6

The grey is way to dark.

I'm also thinking the best jacket pattern to work from is the is the matrix one.

http://www.simplicity.com/p-2235-men-teen-costumes.aspx
The collar is going to be custom no mater what you do.

I also like this one for it's sug firt but is has extra seems to get that to work.
