@moonfall: ooh you should do it !! Hmm what other silver-haired characters are there, come to think of it?? Micaiah's the only one that came in mind as well lol ^^;.


I was in denial about this for a while, but I gotta face the music - I may not get Marth done in time for New York Comic-Con/Anime Fest in October :/. Between what's left to be done and trying to finish my Lightning cosplay (which is my main one now for Saturday), as well as a hopeful internship, and school and work....yeah lol ^^;;;.

If I happen to come across with new Marth progress I'll keep you guys posted, but right now he's taking a backburner b/c I really need Lightning to get done since I'll be meeting with a major photoshoot with her. I'll still be around here at the thread though to help out with any advice and suggestions, don't worry!

I only want to ask here, since you guys would know more about this then the Smash thread. The proper materials for Ike's Tunic Coat thing? We already chose Mirco suede, the same thing I previously used for Link. Along with a thick type of satin for the edgings. Did I hit in the correct ballpark with the Suede and thick satin assumption? It is the middle ages so I just kinda assumed "Something natural and durable, I GOT IT! MAOR SUEDE!" and the satin was just kind of a "Well, I'm not sure if anything else will work". We haven't cut them yet, so if we need to return it we can, just wanted to ask first.

Hmmm....if you reaaally wanna get accurate, Ike isn't a noble like most of the other Fire Emblem Lords; he's a mercenary ^^ (tho I find him adorable actually in Path of Radiance, lmao!). So if you're going that route, the satin would be a no-go. If you're just going by more fictional-historical accuracy, if the satin has a dull shine to it, you should be okay.

I hope that isn't confusing ^^;;; I wish you luck with the tunic!!

@ Snowkirby: He is adorable in his bluntness, he just had a really stupid stance when he was a ranger (Looked like a monkey, lol) thankfully the lord stance makes up for it (Ha! I is all heroic and awesome.). And... Radiant Dawn. I swear he was hitting the gym with RE 5 Chris Redfield. TOO BUFF! SO SCARY! Still a nice guy, but I'd be too scared to ask for a hug.

The stuff we got is very, very dull. ( http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s...y/100_0722.jpg ) But I'll let you be the judge. Sadly, my house has shit lighting, so I had to use the flash. But yeah, damn that suede was pricey, even with the 40% off. Lucky I'd gotten my green on sale...

Greetings Harpy Link,

If it were me, I don't think I'd combine those two fabrics on the same garment, particularly for edging. I think their textures are too different, with the suede being very textured and the satin giving off a "smooth/shiny" sort of finish. Flash photography will heighten and emphasize this difference, too. Additionally, if you want to be nit-picky, I think the edging on his tunic is a little more light yellow than it is cream. I will try to think of a suggestion for a different fabric combination, although I'm drawing a blank right now.

Best of luck with your Ike!

@Harpy: he is adorable!! His Ranger stance really is doofy XD I still need to get his Lord rank. I love his Lord outfit <3. Lmao!

I agree with Visage though, the yellow is a bit more cream (but I think it'd go great as the lining for his cape actually). Tho I'm surprised that with flash, that the satin isn't very shiny at all, like you said.

Let's see...if you were to still go with the suede for the tunic, I think for the edging it should have a similar texture (even if it isn't as rough as the suede), but I can't think of any examples at the moment either ^^;.

I do agree with SnowKirby that the satin does look like it might make a nice cape lining for Ike.

I've done a bit of thinking, and you might be able to use some type of leather or upholstery for the edging. Perhaps check out some home dec materials?

If you're having difficulty finding something to match the suede texture, you could also consider a different base fabric for the tunic.

Best of luck with your endeavors with the Ike costume.

@ Snowkirby: Though I will never understand the purpose of only having one shoulder pad. Shrug, just how designs go.

The satin is a dark lemon yellow in person, that would be the flash creating its havoc. We picked it because it wasn't so horribly shinny. But we really couldn't find much else that would go well, stupid Johann's.

@ Visage: Upholstery? Wouldn't that be way too stark and funcky looking?

Hi guys. Figure I'd bring my two cents to the table. Harpylink failed to mention that this costume is for me, and since she's a bit more active on this site than I am, she beat me to the punch in asking for tips and opinions. You guys seem to be having the problem we had; we couldn't pick a fabric that would go well with the suede. We went with the satin material she mentioned before because the hue of the color didn't stab you in the eye like most yellow fabrics, and also because it wasn't particularly shiny like other satin materials. The fabric in real time is actually more yellow. That picture doesn't do it justice.

Thanks for the advice guys, any input helps. n_n

@Static and Harpy: ohhhhh I see! ::strokes chin:: If it's that shiny though I really don't think you should use it in that case (let alone that it would contrast too much with the suede). Even though it'd be an accurate color in natural lighting, any pictures that have a flash in them will distort the color like that.
