Hey everyone! First time poster in this thread, haha. xD Okay. I was originally going to cosplay Jaune for the convention next week but due to time restraints and inexperience I doubt I'll have his armor (namely the torso) done in time, so I'm going with my backup and starting Lie Ren tomorrow. However, I've got a problem concerning his coat. I was wondering what the little gold pieces on it were called, or if I can buy them anywhere. I'm considering using toggles or whatever they're called, but those don't look too similar. (Reference image here: http://images.wikia.com/rwby/images/7/70/Ep400007.png) Also, since there's not too many references of his back in the series, here's another image I found which shows the (embroidered?) design clearly for anyone else who's looking into cosplaying Ren: http://images.wikia.com/rwby/images/...bandonment.png

Thank you for your time, everyone!

They are called frogs. Your local fabric store will have some in the notions section but they will be fancy loopy things unless you have a really well stocked store. I've only seen the style you need in person at a fabric store at a small fabric store in Hawaii where they catered to the large Asian population by having yukata fabric and all other kinds of Asian related clothes items. (I miss that store.) You can find them online though in various styles. It helps to google 'Frog closures' since if you just say frogs you tend to get the animal not the item.

And yes, in actuality Ren's frogs don't look a whole lot like frogs even in simple forms. The way they are rendered they look more like solid buttons rather than fabric with the way they have square centers and stick out. If you really don't like any of the frog closures you can find online then I recommend trying to build these and then attach it to the jacket while for actual functionality using snaps on the underside to close it.

Ohh, that helps me out quite a lot! I had to do some of these kind of things on my Mako costume a couple years back, I just didn't realize how similar they were. xD Thank you so much!

Will do! I just realized how the frogs are made, but I'm coming up with the more complex designs on google. Just gotta find some of those simple, traditional ones and then I'll be golden. xD They seem to be the hardest part of the entire costume besides the design on his back!

Try 'twist frog closures'. There's a kind that's even simpler but it doesn't have a specific title that I recall. Let me pull up my ebay viewing history and I'll show you what I mean...

Dunno if you can see that alright but that's the simplest kind I know of.

D: I've dealt with that kind of material before, I'm not going anywhere near it again. Those things are SHARP. Like, prickle-like sharp. I found a tutorial on the knot, I'll just use 1/8 inch thick cord and tie them up. xD Thanks!

No problem, and yeah I've used those before. They aren't sharp so we must be using something different, but they are crappy and gaudy in a way I don't like.

I meant when that type of material frays. I've bought a few things like it before, like trim. It is quite gaudy, now that you mention it. xD

Ah, yeah whenever it started fraying I'd seal it with a little hot glue. They fray a lot though. T_T

I CALLED IT! But seriously loved this episode! Great dialogue!

^^; Sorry, just got excited. Also I may now have to do photos in this costume wearing an apron and making pancakes just because of this episode. XD

Also, does this mean everyone has a super power? Cause like the way Pyrrha said it sound that way. And I didn't think Ruby's was speed since Blake can do the so fast she leaves doubles of herself and is obviously much faster than Ruby.
