Hey so I'm planning on putting together a cosplay for Ashe from League of Legends http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws....e_Splash_0.jpg
My last (and first) cosplay turned out pretty terrible, and I'm determined to do better this time >.< So maybe you guys can guide me in the right direction? I'm pretty inexperienced, so I kind of have a lot of questions to ask.
What kind of material should I be using for her cape, dress, gloves, etc? Should I use the same materials for all clothing parts?
How would I go about doing the gold borders and designs? Fabric paint? Applique?(keeping in mind I know very little about applique, just saw it mentioned here and there on the forums)
How would I make her bow look accurate in appearance? I want to make it look at least somewhat similar to the reference, but I don't think painting it bright blue will do anything for it ): I was thinking of maybe detracting from the bright intense blue and instead painting and texturing it like real ice. What do you guys think? Should I just go with keeping it accurate in color?
