I've recently taken an interest to cosplay all three Reyvateil Origins later on. However, each of their body suits has stumped me on what materials I should use and how to make them. Right now I am focusing on making Shurelia's costume.
She is the reyvateil origin who I've seen cosplayed the most. Her outfit is pretty basic, minus all the details. I've seen many people just make bodysuits and draw/paint on the black detailing, usually forgetting and/or decreasing the gold detailing on their costume. The biggest questions I have for her costume is...
1) what material should I use for her body suit that will also be durable enough to add the extra details on?
2) How should I make the shoulder part of the suit (it has sort of a puff out)
3) How should I make the stocking boots with the plastic(?) top detail?
4) what materials should I use for the gold details? Styrofoam? plastic?
I have found a body suit tutorial that allows you to make a 'seamless' looking body suit as well.
