I have two requests for help. The first one was asked a while back but missed, so I'll just repost with my second question.

I know Vocaloids are supposed to have a futuristic android type thing going on, but I have no idea how what to use for Piko's dress thing.
I'm a fan of the materials this person used for the outfit, especially the trim (that shine on the collar hnnngh). Can anyone tell what it's made of?

The second one is Jack Frost's cloak from the beginning of the movie. I've heard wool is a good material, but I'm worried about never being able to wear it except in winter. Any lighter alternatives that still have the same effect?

Hi I'm looking for a fabric that resembles leaves for this version of Tinkerbell. I'm have trouble specifically with the top portion of the dress.
I really like the fabric this girl chose for the top, but I can't tell if it's painted or not and she didn't respond when I asked her.
I also like the face characters fabric too but I don't think it's as leafy looking.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking around but I haven't found anything remotely close.

Could anyone suggest what the best fabric to use for a pouch lining would be? I'm making some to go with my Link cosplay, but I was hoping to use them as well.

Basically, I was planning to have the lining hang freely in the pouch itself (which'll be made of either vinyl or two layers of cotton and interfacing), like a sack (I'm planning to use it for berry picking so I want to make it so the contents don't get shaken around too much), so I need something soft and easy to wash. Any ideas what would be best to use?

Could someone actually help me find a pattern for this Harley Quinn costume?
I'm just not sure what search word to use. Unitard? Leotard? Bodysuit?

This thread is great! Just what i needed

I'm planning on making an akali cosplay from LoL. I always end up buying fabric that isn't right for the costume so it will really help for some advice.
Reference image

Thanks

bcmilk: Most of the outift seems to be armour, so maybe use pleather or tough looking medium weight cotton? Do you have other reference images?

I have this costume that I am making for my boyfriend. It's Yusha (Yuusha?) From Maoyuu Maou Yuusha anime.



I am thinking of using a sateen fabric for the shirt. Is that a good material for it? What would you recommend for the pants? Sorry to bother with more questions but the edges of the blue shirt are light colored. What would you recommend for that? I was thinking of lining the shirt with the lighter fabric and make it a bit longer than the dark blue. Maybe like a cotton? Or the same material as the dark blue.

Also would you recommend buying fabric from dharma trading? I usually go to Jo Ann fabrics.

I'm making Cordelia from Fire Emblem: Awakening (Yay more FE folks!), but I'm completely stumped on what fabrics to use for her dress:

Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks!

I'm kind of stuck so I'm just throwing this out there but would anyone happen to know what kind of fabric this would be?



I'm guessing it's two layers but I can't figure out the inner layer D:
