Ahahah! Your sister posted about green nylons and I referred to my cousin ( sakuradayu's ) Tellu costume. ^-^ Ironic.
Anyways, we drew it on if I remember correctly...er...one sec. *goes to check*
yup. we drew it on. it's usually your best bet for costumes like this. It's really really hard to get string/rope etc. to stay on skin, not to mention nylons which are slipperier... X_x
Though there is a kind of string, if you could call it that...it's more for kids arts and crafts which is like a flat line of thin plastic. It sticks to the skin a little bit better but still very difficult to keep up. ( we tried, prior to the convention )
Another thing...if you're going to use string and bead it, use hot glue to keep the beads in place. Dunt want them all sliding to her ankles/wrists. ^-^;; But I wouldn't really suggest beads since it might keep the string away from the skin and cause more slippage problems. Maybe you could glue round sequins onto it??
Oh! This just came to mind...you /could/ get thin black /elastic/. It's kind of pricey, but guarenteed to stay up better. *-* Just...don't tie it too too tight...dunt wanna cut of her circulation or anything. ^^;; ( we've had that sort of problem...only lead to me getting kicked. ) LOL!!
Good luck! and take pictures! LOOOTS! ^0^
...hmm...I think i'll use some of my own ideas to renovate /her/ Tellu...hehehaaha!
