I'm planning to cosplay Momiji in his (winter) school uniform. I was wondering if anyone had any tips and tricks for the top of it (especially when it comes to the collar- I've made a uniform with a collar for it before for another costume, but I generaly didn't like how it came out, so anything on that especially would be wonderfull).

Also, I'm having a difficult time finding pictures to use for a reference. I could always take screenshots, but if anyone has any pictures handy, that would make things so much easier on me!

KaineMaxwell, dont have a pattern but I think you could go to goodwill get a black blazer and just run white trim around the sleeves and collar, and then take the collar, and put some buttons up the front, so that the collar stands up like a boys school uniform.

Or you could take a black button down shirt, crop it and run white piping on the sleeves, collar and bottom -- that would be easiest I think...

i think i posted before, i wanna do hatsuharu. But having issues with the furry collar on the coat.

i also do akito sohma

I cosplay as miss Saki Hanajima in her winter uniform ^_^

The only problem is wearing the winter uniform in the summer. Plus if you get a wig (I got the Godiva super long one) it's a pain in the butt to braid and a pain in the butt to add bangs, so I'd recommend going to a wig shop and have them do it for you. They fixed mine up for $15

It's great advice... but... ah... Momiji wears the girls uniform top (same as Tohru) instead of the guys.

hmm, so then i'd say, take the shirt button it up to the top (before the collar turns down), then wack off the collar, and then get some "seam tape" in white velcro and create a collar that you can "velcro" to the neck, that way you can take it off if it gets screwed up and resize it until it fits right. even put velcro on the shoulders to hold the collar in place...

all i got, for the cheap-fast-and dirty.

hack-and-slash cozplay (just like a video game) - that would be righteous, how fast can you hack together a momiji costume with 5 bucks, goodwill, a needle and thread and some glue!

Sporkstress: I've made that top before. So I can give you a hand.

The collar. There is a cosplayer named Lynleigh, who makes great tutorials for Sailor Moon costumes, so I borrowed the collar pattern from her. It works great for all school uniforms and sailor-y things.

http://www.lynleigh.com/cosplay/

In the Tutorials section, under the Sailor Collar Pattern. It works like a charm!

As for the actual shirt, there are a few ways to do it. You can either make a v-neck pullover, or make it as a button down. They are really button downs in the manga, but the shirts have 'hidden' buttons. I reccomend making a button down. They are much easier to get on and off. There are a lot of patterns for shirts like that, so it should be easy to find one.

As for the white edge on the bottom of the shirt. You can use Bias Tape. I reccomend getting the 'extra wide single fold' or the 'double fold' for the bottom.

If you need any other help just ask. If you want to see how mine turned out, there are pictures of it in my gallery. It's the Tohru Costume. Oh and I attached a little picture of Momiji's uniform below. I hope that helps.

Hey! I know this board's been more or less dead for a while, but I love Fruits Basket.

I'd love to make my own costume but I can't sew(sow? xD) if my life depended on it.. >_>; But I am getting Rin's outfit commissioned.

A bunch of my friends and I got a huge Furuba group together for AX. We had everyone, but our Akito was sick, ironically enough.

I do Yuki cosplay for cons and often some ppl actually get confused w/ my gender at AX this year. xD;; Yuki isn't really my fav char but I have his physics (aka flat boobies. =O) so that's why I cosplay him. :x I really want to do Ayame but am just not tall enough. D:
