Hi, I'm also going to be attempting pokemon hoodies. I was originally going to do a team rocket cosplay but decided that I needed to budget more money elsewhere, so I'm going with hoodies for me and my friend instead.
I'm planning on doing one Umbreon and one Espeon (provided the friend I'm cosplaying with will be willing to do the pair with me.)
I'll be using regular hoodies as a base, in fact, these: http://www.target.com/C9-Champion-Fr...k&frombrowse=1
(the white one will have to be dyed.)
I have a few questions in regard to the process if anyone could give me tips.
Umbreon Markings: What type of fabric should I use for the markings? I know I've seen someone suggest felt for things like that, but I was wondering if it would be a good idea to use the same type of fabric that the hoodie's made out of. I think it would look more together, but I have a feeling that would be harder to sew since it's stretchy. I guess the big question is what fabric and technique I need to use to make them look nice and neat.
Ears: Another fabric question. Should I try and match the fabric of the jacket again, or would there be a better type of fabric to use? How do I attach them to the hoodie and should I attempt to make them stand up (I know I prolly should with Espeon, but with Umbreon it seems optional)? And how would I accomplish that?
