*gah* Final Fantasy costuming is getting too hard!!! If you're willing to try starching it, I would suggest getting some good heavy interfacing and lining to bits you need to stick out with that. Then if you do need to result to boning, the fabric will be easier to keep stiff in betwwen boning. *mut...

It can be. I'm the costume co-ordinator, so it can be a lot of work too. We'll(or they since I'm not in this show) be doing a performance at AO this year, using the show Bleach. And we just had a try out for our next show at Fandemonium, which is based on Kingdom Hearts, now we're waiting to see wha...

A friend of mine just did a Tifa made out of fakey leather. It's quite a bit less expensive than real leather, and easier to sew. It looks really good for the Tifa too.

You make a full length dress the same way you'd make a short dress, only longer.

I'm 5'0. I've cosplayed characters that were 6'0". It's all in how you carry yourself. I've done a Lulu before. She's much taller than 5'0". Just make yourself the character, and it won't matter how tall you are. I've seen incredibly overweight people play , for example, Chi. One in particular pulle...

What kind of help do you need exactly? I'd suggest finding a pattern and altering it. The dresses design is really not very complicated... In fact it's not really victorian either, it just very goth. There are great patterns in simplicity.com, or mcalls.com that can be altered or even taken as they ...

I'd suggest using fabric paints(not the puffy kind). Just stick a peice of cardboard or something inside thitights so the color doesn't run. Or so they don't stick together! It'll be MUCH better than trying to sew the shapes on. good luck! Let me know how it turns out.
