Hoop Skirt Help?
First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. >< If it is, please tell me where I should post it or if a moderator could move it that would be lovely. c:
Alright, so here is the problem. I have a 5-ring hoop skirt that has been perfect for all my cosplays that need one. Belle, Civil War, Victorian, etc. But, today, I received my Silent Night Sona and didn't take into consideration how heavy velvet could be. I tried using the hoop skirt I have always used for my others but it just warps and bends and doesn't keep its beautiful round shape. I thought perhaps I had warped it by folding it incorrectly but when tried on with my other cosplays (I did multiple ones just to make sure) it kept up its beautiful shape. I am looking into getting another 5-6 ring hoop skirt for this cosplay but I cannot think of where I should start. Honestly, I bought all my previous hoop skirts from a particular seller on EBay who sells bridal needs. But, all the boning was the same material so I do not think they would work. Does anyone have any suggestions for where I should look? What type of boning I should get? Thank you for your help!
