So I'm currently putting together a cosplay for the character above, Sylphynford Tachibana from Himouto! Umaru-chan. I'm really excited to complete this project, but her skirt has been somewhat of an illusion to me.
I am somewhat-experienced in skirt making but I can't seem to figure out what shape would be best for this skirt, as it seems to be a combination of several.
My other dilemma is figuring out what to make the bottom trim of the skirt and wrist cuffs are from. It looks like fluffy white material but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
If anyone has any suggestions on either of these problems I would be so grateful!
For the skirt shape, I would just go with a circle skirt. If you want more volume, you could do a few circles together and gather at the waist. Then put a petticoat under it.
As for the white trim, a lot of times fur is drawn something like that, so maybe look for a shorter pile fur and sew it on by hand. I've done that on some costumes in the past and it works pretty well. But if you don't want to go with fur, you could maybe make tubes of white fabric and stuff them lightly to give a fluffy look as well.
It looks like the sheepskin style fur, which is available in faux types.
The skirt is tricky, they drew impossible seams for the shape. I would do a circle that is too big in the waist and gather it slightly, then petticoat. This will give you that ever-so-slight bell shape a bit better than a straight, correctly cut, circle skirt.
