Yuri Plisetsky Apage Help?

So I'm planning on making Yurio's agape outfit from Yuri!! on Ice, but I was wondering how to go about making it (what fabric to use, how to make the mesh, etc.).
I have virtually no experience in making clothing, so I need a fair bit of help.

Whew, you picked a tough build for your first project-- this is gonna take time and patience and lots of trial and error, so be prepared!

Secondly, you'll get more useful answers by asking questions in the right subforum (try sewing/fabric for this!), and being super specific about what you're trying to do. We won't walk you through the whole costume step by step, but since you're new to the forums, I'll at least try and point you in the right direction.

You'll want to start with some sort of bodysuit, which you could pre-buy and add layers to with applique and/or paint, or you could get a bodysuit pattern and make it totally from scratch. For things that are that form-fitting, you need stretch materials, like 4-way PVC or spandex. The "feathery" parts you could do with real feathers (which will be a LOT of hand-sewing!), or just make very long/rounded shapes with your fabric pieces. Patterning out each fabric section on large paper will make this way easier for you.

I honestly wouldn't recommend this as a first project, especially if you have no experience sewing knits. It's not gonna be fun for you. Even as an experienced sewist, doing all of the applique took me a full day of going very slowly and carefully.

That said, if you want to go through with it, you can look through my tags on tumblr:
http://fabrickind.tumblr.com/tagged/yurio+genderbend
http://fabrickind.tumblr.com/tagged/yurio+agape
(and dig through my wip tag as well)
I did a fem version, but really the only difference is the length of the bodysuit and the feathers at the hips (as well as the makeup)

I don't know if any of my posts about it made it into those particular tags, but I wouldn't recommend the glitter mesh I used. I'd go for a fishnet over a metallic spandex or something else with inherent sparkle in it rather than a glitter material. I had a hard time finding a fishnet that would have been stretchy enough, but I also did this /very/ quickly and didn't have time to look or to do any testing with swatches, so the fishnets over at Spandex World might be okay. Get swatches first.

Also:

That'll probably come in handy.


If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. As it is, your question is really too general for us to be of much use.

I actually have nothing to add to this thread except I stopped by your Tumblr and saw photos of your female Yurio. I am just in love with how it turned out! Nice job!

Thank you!

There are things I want to change (more rhinestones up top, change the hip feather attachments, actually add the details to the tops of the shoulder feathers), but hey, I only had a week.
