Bombshell Vixen Help

Cosplay help!

I want to do Bombshell Vixen for the upcoming Fan Days and could use some help figuring out which fabric and sewing pattern to use.

I try searching for the best pattern, but my Google powers aren't working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Googles pretty useless for this. ALWAYS check the big pattern companies first! Simplicity, Mccalls, Vogue, Butterick, Burda....

For fabric I'd go with a stretch satin, or maybe a silky solid (if you have a Joanns near by)

None of these are perfect, but I think they have a good feel about them. Since its a fanpiece (I think?) you have some leeway.

Agreed, google is useful if you don't know where to find a thing, but we all know one gets sewing patterns from that list of companies.
I liked 6401 the best, it's closest and will allow the pattern manipulation needed most easily.

Saw your post in the "what fabric should I use?' thread. I recommend keeping all posts related to a single costume together in one thread.

I personally would do that dress in velvet, and maybe an ultrasuede for those interesting side panels.
Second choice is a crepe satin (which is not stiff, it flows nicely)
