Hello Cosplay Community!
It's been some time that I wanted to start making my own costume - and now I finally chose to make a Oda Nobunaga cosplay for the next big convention in my country (DoKomi). I want to go to the cosplay ball there.
Unfortunately I have newer sewn and don't know a lot about it. So I think I might need a little help to get things started.
This is my first cosplay and I only got about five months left, hence I might be a little reluctant to make all the pieces myself. But please take a look at what I want to do and tell me what I could change.
My mother knows a thing or two about sewing, so I got that goin for me...
Maybe this one: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-...024010622.html
The inner layers:
2x Hapi (Pattern: Folkwear 129) - one in red, one in white; maybe use silk?
The clothing below the jacket:
I think it's a leather armor. Something similiar to https://www.dein-larp-shop.de/ready-...__store=dls_en
I am thinking about making a commission since I don't know anyone who knows something about leather...
Maybe use denim? I can't find a good sewing pattern... but it should be something like a frock coat, right?
Linen trousers. I might buy those: http://www.bonprix.de/produkt/leinen...ter=Ladenzeile
I got shoe size US14 / EU50 (that's 29-30cm foot length >.>). Any ideas?
If not, I might as well make a commission or take those: http://www.maskworld.com/english/pro...-brown--103983
Thanks a lot for your help!
