Theres a magazine called Gosurori that have many patterns in each one. I only have the one scanned but take a look thru the patterns and maybe youll find something. I know there a cute mini top hat there.

Doing a search for gosurori brings up a lot of stuff too.

That IS a good method, Id just like to add that if you have acrylic pants (tole paints) theres stuff you can get to mix in it that makes it fabric paint. Its called textile medium. Just thought Id throw that in, its cheap but I think sewing them on looks better when done right. (but then all things ...

eh? rose? what? ... riiight, http://www.cosplay.janchan.com/genral.html Its not the best pattern out there but kimonos are rather easy, due to the fact that where the arms meet the base, its straight. This is a costume kimono pattern. Real kimono material is only 40cm or so (i forget) so it would ha...

I have tattoo pens but I always just did it free hand, (b4 I found the tattoo paper though) Writing kanji on your forehead in a mirror BACKWARDS is not fun. And now the kanji A...

This is true! Sharpies are ok. I think a lot of ppl use eye liner too, I use diluted body acrylic. But I prefer to make the tattoos, because then the images is the same as the manga and I dont have to worry about screwing up. Its difficult to draw on onesself afterall.

I have seen someone use those thin cookie sheets they sell at the grocery store, the $2 ones. THey look really good, and it wont cut you because its just not strong enough. You do have to be carful about bending it once its OFF your head, but when on, it would look better than a pop can.

Check the section with cloth for making things for babies. There's usually really good stuff for plusies there. Like the knit fabrics, the really tight ones, they are great!

You could use an iron on. I have the swirl graphic on my site in with the iron ons, but I used it on the sleeves, not the vest. I use the iron ons for black tshirts, you can get them at staples and places where they sell specialty printer paper. http://www.cosplay.janchan.com/naruto.html I think you...
