Back onto Persona: The ribbons on Fuuka's shirt neck and sleeve ends, should I look for a ribbon that isn't shiny/satin or would satin be acceptable? I seriously cannot choose between the two. For my Mikuru cosplay I went with satin on the collar and cuffs but now when I look at it I'm thinking, "what was I thinking when I chose that?!" But for Fuuka, I'm torn. The fabric for the shirt is stretching but not shiny.... gah!!! -rips out hair-

Coolness!
As for Fuuka's costume~ I think satin will be ok for the ribbons for for the ribbons

But for the turtle neck... It would be better in cotton/ non shiny cloth because of the details on it.

-multiple headdesk- I got fabric that doesn't have little designs on it......... maybe I'll wait until I move, the Joann's near where I'll be living is like a SUPER Joann's, compared to the small one down here. I live in a small town.......

Also, Just want to get another person's opinion on wig choice. I'm thinking of using the Z (zigzag part) wig from Amphigory.
Wig
The color is Daydream. I figure I'll have to use a razor comb for the bangs (having friend with wig styling experience teach me).

@MewIllusion - I'm also going into costume design =D
The wig looks like a really good colour for Fuuka. For the ribbons, I think either would work, but if you can find cotton ribbons that would probably be better. Or get bias tape and sew it in half xD

Mkay, I'm terrible. I think of stupid things to cosplay. Like Nyx. Which I actually follow through with for some reason. So now I'm going to be making FES Aegis with the military gear and stuff, so any suggests for what I can use to make the gold and silver metal parts? Cardboard's my best friend but I'm not so sure that's a good idea for this.

As i am cosplaying Jin and they never really show the gun he uses i was wondering if this one came close? I know i will have to paint it and really do not have a prob with that i was just wondering what you all thought.

Also another two questions one where could i find a toy gernade or something like that and two what would be the cheapest way to get his briefcase.

Thanks in advance

@SupremeKai - I got a gun like that too, and just painted it.
Might be able to get a toy grenade at a dollarstore in some kind of toy pack. Try a second hand store for the briefcase, or you could make it out of cardboard or something.

Well, I've put my Junpei costume on hold... (he's too guyish for me... and well the hair was the real problem, not to mention I really wanted to cosplay Junpei at a con that Vic would be at...)

So instead I'm going back to my Bebe idea. Yay! Now it's back to the task of looking for a good fan to use... I doubt I'll be able to get a black one with gold butterflies... But I'm going to see what I can do.

I got my Bebe fan from ebay.
While it doesn't have COMPLETELY gold butterflies, it has gold, red, and blue butterflies.

That is a cute fan. I found one that's black with adorable white flowers on it and I may use that. But first I'm probably going to check out my local Japanese goods store and possibly the Japanese Garden's kiosk.
