Thanks! Now I gotta find out where they sell it ^^; (Because I don't have much time left, I probably need to buy it in stores.)

You can purchase fashion tape at any fabric store. You can also sometimes get it at places like Claire's and Charming Charlie. Though that just depends on luck and supply. Spirit gum is available at any costume store. <3

For any of the Madokas out there, did any of you use some sort of support for the top? I threw mine together for a school event, and when I saw some of the pictures classmates took, I realised one side was kinda sagging down >w<; I'm sure it has to do with setting in one sleeve too far back and not getting it properly fitted, but oddly the other side stayed up just fine the entire day. I did use interfacing, but that isn't strong enough, and I was considering using that cheapo featherlite boning just to keep it up, seeing as I don't actually need it to give shape.

@.@ I'm midway through Goddess Madoka. This is like a true torcher... I've gotten the top dress done, and the hoopskirt done but I need to go back and fix it some. The dress I've changed a bit since I took the picture but here's how it sorta looks: http://missmina2.deviantart.com/art/...-WIP-280436308
I've tightened it up since I took that picture and ajusted the gathering of the skirt since the sides weren't exactly even...
I don't have any pictures of the hoop skirt I made, I need to go back and trim the lower hoops back a bit anyway. @.@

I remade my Mami corset with platic boning in the lining this weekend. I was having issue with it sagging so I hope this will fix it.

I'm about 98% done with my Mami cosplay!

I just have to finish up some small details and finishing touches but all that's left is pretty much hand-sewing type stuff. All my in progress shots are on my tumblr they're all listed on the cosplay progress tag. ^_^

I'll be debuting it at Katsucon this weekend. *so excited*

Hey, I'm planning to cosplay Getrud's minion, Anthony.

I'm not particularly sure where I should start though, I was thinking of making the head out of either chicken wire or paper mache, then covering that with SOME sort of cottony foam--just as a prototype idea.

Also, there was someone who cosplayed Anthony at Anime Expo 2011, I didn't get his contact info and I've sort of been searching for him... If by chance you know who I'm talking about that would be helpful too.

Anyways, if anyone has any ideas or tips for the cosplay that would be awesome! Thanks!

Hello ~

I've started working on Madoka again since I want to finally finish and debut her in March. In any case, I've gone back and made a new skirt: link and I bought shoes from Bodyline, and the order came in today: link
The lace on my socks are removable. I just made it so I can slip them on and off, and still be able to use the plain socks for other things.

Your skirt is pretty epic miugiko.



As for Anthony sexytime10:
Head I would make out of foam by caring with a utility knife and use 3M Super 77 spray adhisive to cglue on the cotton/poly batten.
http://www.matrices.net/maskvideo.asp

You would also need to cute a whole were the mustache is do you can place black fabric that you can see through.


Black body suit

The petals/wings you could make out of 2 large craft foam sheet and snadwich wire between them and glue the whole rhing dow with silicone. Just put weigh on them as they dry so that the foam doesen't curl are it curs. Once the silicon is cured curve the petals to the shape you want then paint with acrylic paint.

Thanks for the help, also I probably should have mentioned I'm only interested in making the head... the black body suit idea is pretty neat though too!
