Dazed's cruddy costume corner
« on: September 06, 2016, 03:37:19 am »
Hello!

It's me, obviously. I was wondering if someone could help me? I've been always interested in cosplay/ costume making/ prop making/ etc and I was wondering if anyone could give me a hand? I have no previous experiences with these things before, so what would I need, how should I go about, and where do I start? 
Thank you!

First off: you need money and a lot of it. Costume making isn't cheap and.
Second: you need to learn how to sew and/or have a sewing machine. Hot glue isn't going to hold the seems forever
Third: get a good reference of whatever it is you want to make. But make sure it's from all angles and with the details on its design.
Fourth: search for the supplies and make sure that you work on the costume weeks before whatever event you think it may be. Shipping can take longer than you think and so can the creating process.
Fifth and finally: YouTube is your friend. Use it to learn different tutorials and tips. Also be sure to ask questions to other cosplayers, they're always happy to share how they made their costumes

Aah, gotcha. Anyone got some tips from past experiences that went poorly?
Bap, may turn this thread into a progress thing for projects and test and whatnot

If you're into fursuit making, this person has some really good tutorials.
