Do you make yours from patterns or just from scratch? Florina seems simple enough to me. ...maybe I need to learn to make some sketches, though... >.>?

Just doing some more pic searching. Check out this one! O.O
No, I find patterns that are as close as I can get them and then I butcher them until I have what I want. For example, for Clarine's costume, I butchered a vest pattern with princess seams that buttoned up the front and had a normal shirt collar. Well, I needed the princess seams for shape, the hem was just about right, and the facing for the collar was something I couldn't BS, but I made a new collar based upon the one that came with the pattern, joined the front together as a seam instead of a button-up front, and lengthened the hem just a little bit so it matched Clarine's costume.

You don't necessarily have to be good at drawing to make a useful preliminary sketch. It's just for you to start thinking about how you want to do the costume. It helps me figure out where it's going to take the most effort to mess with the pattern, what materials to use, and how to go about doing things (like the insanely intricate hem designs) that are almost to truly impossible in real life. Florina's costume is relatively simple, but keep in mind that finding an appropriate pattern to butcher and deciding on materials might not be that easy.

Do you guys want to see some of my preliminary sketches and scrawlings?

Yeah I would like to!

But I'm just glad i'm not the only one who does this! I always draw out my plans for a costume, to see if think I can make it and to dissect the parts and the details. I think they really help me. But as to making them, to each his own I guess. In my mind I'm an OK artist but no Picaso. So I think I can draw most costumes deacently. And Gamer panda do you want me to try to do one of Florina for you?

XD Yeah I know what you mean! I can watch my brother play a game and want to do a character. (Without even touching the game myself!) When I actually play the game is when I get really into it.

I'm an Erk cosplayer, myself. *points to gallery* I don't plan on making any other FE costumes for myself, but I do plan on making Erk perfect down to the very last detail. I also might make a Rath costume for my boyfriend.
*salutes FE cosplay*

But I shall agree that Archers can kick so serious butt, as long as there not being used by an idiot (aka-my brother). My bro can not keep any long distance attacking people alive. By brother has lost every Archer and magic user he's gotten in Path of Radiance, lol

Wyvern Lords > everyone else
But that's just my opinion. :P

I just think bishops are a bit better than mages since they have higher RES. Y'know, so they don't take magical damage? Har-har.

But we're getting off-topic here. So to put us back on-topic, I bought the perfect pattern for Shiva(FE4, myrmidon/swordmaster)'s coat.

Reference picture

How are everyone elses' quests going?
