Dragon Knight Fai (of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle)
Thanks to friends of friends who loved my Outo country Fai cosplay (I love them to death because they made me feel so good about cosplaying him and lugging around the giant "Cat's Eye" cafe sign), I've been wrangled into doing group cosplay. One isn't too hard (creating an entire Outo country arc cast) but the other is considerably more difficult because I've been asked to be part of a smaller group based on an artbook picture.
I have until AX 07 to finish this costume as I do not intend on attending any conventions during the school year because of my studies but I'd like to start now and create a very awesome cosplay.
After that very long intro (my apologies), I would like to ask two questions concerning the construction of my costume.
1) I have a pattern that I believe I can adjust but is there any good way to construct a collar that high on a coat without making it obvious that it's sewn on (i.e. by flopping, seam lines)?
2) What is the best way to attach the dragon design on the front of the coat?
Thank you for your help!
