I would love to go, I hear great things about it. It's the lovely matter of getting good grades to get approval to go and finding a friend to drag along with me. Both not-so-fun tasks.

First things first, Go to the library and check out a basic sewing book, and see if there is a pattern drafting book there as well. Take those home and read it and come back to the boards with more questions that the book didn't answer!

Rikku in FF X2 doesn't have blue things, she wears a bikini top and a pair of green shorts. Her FIRST outfit from FF X has her wearing a princess seamed sleeveless orange shirt with blue accents attached to her shoulder blades. I believe most people make those from cotton broadcloth in the color the...

Lordy lordy, this is going to be your first costume?! *sigh* I hope you know you're going to spend a lot of money and time on this costume. Have you sewn before? Have you hand painted fabric before? Do you know where to get feathers and how to attach them? I don't think I'd even bother taping my che...

Hahahaa, this is silly. No one just has a pattern for everything they see as far as cosplay. There are some people that do make patterns for people and sell them. I know that this one lady sells Sailor Moon patterns, and another lady on Cosplay.com and make custom patterns, but it's true, that ther...

Hmm, you chose some challenging costumes to really get into cosplaying. Really your costume work depends on how well you already know how to sew.
