Have someone help you lay it on to the shirt and pants, or if you have a dress form, use it. I had to sketch out a little diagram of the belt placements before I started laying them on, it helped me, if thats the sort of thing that helps you, go for it! Not gong to lie, the belt placement was the toughest part of making Eren. Once I got that done, it was pretty much down hill from there.

I hoped that helped you serene-artist, and sorry if that made no sense. Again please if anyone has better advice, please correct me.

The tutorial seems amazing!! (Kudos for making it without seeing it haha)
It seems difficult but doable.
Yeah, the belt placement is really scary looking! (ono )
Did you just connect a bunch of belts together? I feel like I saw an actual reference of someone making the belts but I can't remember (-_-; )
But that reference picture really helps! I should read over the manga again for more of those haha.

I'm really grateful to you Tangledinblue!!!!<3 Seriously, thanks for even answering!
Just asking, did you make the jacket, or did you buy it? I don't know if I have time to since I have another cosplay as well.....(by any chance, do you have a ref for it as well ^^; ?)

I'm so sorry for bothering! It's just my first time cosplaying, but I really love SnK so yeah....

P.S. Totally want to see your Eren when you're done~

No problem at all! Happy to help out!

But overall it wasn't....so difficult to make the 3DMG. It is doable (as someone who is terrible with props, I was able to do it...so yeah)

All my belt I handswen together, but each of them are individual strips. And that ref pic is from the manga. After one of the chapters they had a few pages of the belts and the 3DMG.

As for my jacket, I think my friend is making me a new one for Otakon. But the one I have now, I just went to Good Will and got a dress shirt and modified that the best I can and added the emblems on the back. Lots of luck to you, especially since this is your first cosplay! And again no problem!

My friends and I will probably stop by the gathering with myself as Ravioli, Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Jean, Reiner, and a Colossal Titan possibly. C:

Oh, that gives me some hope~
I see, at the very least I'm okay at hand sewing so yay?
I was thinking of modifying a jacket since I probably don't have enough skill to make one right now.
Indeed. What a task for a first cosplay! But hopefully it'll be worth it

Thanks for the luck! And hope you enjoy your SnK cosplay at Otakon (^^ )/

I was Eren with the enlisted emblem at AZ, going to level up to Scouting Legion for Ota. I'm currently working on my 3DMG.

So does anyone want to schedule a meetup? We can all get together and complain about belts and props?

A meetup on Friday would be awesome (although I'm sure a Saturday gathering would be good too seeing how popular the show is becoming) since my Saturday schedule is slowly becoming crowded. x___x
