I hope this is the right place to put this...
I recently got a costume commissioned, reference pictures here
. It's 100% complete and should be shipped out to me today. In the pictures that the commissioner had sent to me, one of the pictures was taken with a "bum roll", which isn't going to be included in the package.
So I guess I have a few questions. What is a bum roll? Would I be able to buy one, and if so where and how much would it cost roughly? If I can't buy one, how difficult is it to make? I'm incredibly low on time; I'm going on a family vacation for most of next week and the convention will be the weekend after we get back (fun times!), so that only leaves this weekend for me to work on it.
EDIT: Wow, so I fail for not using the search tool properly. "Bumroll" should be one word, not two separate words that are three letters each (which slips through the search tool).
For anyone stumbling across this in the future, I found this page
and I'll likely be using that to make the bumroll over the weekend if I need to, it doesn't look too difficult.
I'm curious though, is it possible to buy this in a store in person? At a fabric or a costume store, maybe? Or is this a pipe dream?
