Twill tape would probably be too big. The stuff's often as wide as shoelaces and then it's of course got all that extra patterning from its weave. Maybe white embroidery floss stitched on or multiple rows of white sewn by machine to make it look thicker? Or, some white "round"/piping cord (hard to describe by text), and you could couch-stitch it on? (If you don't know what that is, it's when you sew a larger cord onto an item by making little stitches overtop sections of it with thin/invisible thread.) If it didn't have to stretch at all, I'd suggest fine lines of fabric paint. If you still go with a flat tape, I'd use bias tape. You can still get it pretty narrow, it's not patterned, and it won't fray.

I don't have a sewing machine, so I'm definitely limited as to what I can do. I was really hoping the still tape would work. Maybe I should use ribbon? Though that presents a "shine" factor.
I guess I could also see about just getting some fabric and sewing it on to make stripes.

I'm not so sure about that Old Navy hoodie because she wears a zipper hoodie.

Like I said, I'd use teeny-tiny strips of bias tape, or if you can precise enough, narrow, more string than tape (as in, less than a quarter inch wide, it may as well be string), felt/fleece to match the fuzzier hoodie look.

Bound for the first time. WTF is with people saying it's uncomfy? Just do it over a tank top and you're good. It might take longer, but it's comfier.

Anyways. The local anime store is horrible and thought we were gonna change into more...elaborate cosplays there. WE WERE ALREADY IN COSPLAY. -_-

Embroidered a bit more on Saber's shawl. I think I'm really reaching the point where I'm seriously wondering why I thought it was a good idea to do this. >_< I still have about half of this emblem left to do and then another one on the other side and then the border design.

How come there is so little coverage or any photos from chicon or worldcon from the previous years? This convention according to wiki is the birthplace for cosplay as we know it now.

I have a handful on my plate. Lately I've been having a lot of family problems which have been taking up all my time. Hopefully I can get these things done in time, which I'm sure I will : ).

Stop it brain, stop it. I cannot design a Gumi version of Rhapsody of Loups Garous. Although it would be a great Halloween costume...The problem is, the one I'm designing has my stomach showing so probably not. I wonder how much green fleece I have left over from my friend's Gatomon gijinka. I wonder if there's enough to make a tail and ears...
