I am making a princess tutu cosplay for Halloween and I can't find a tutorial on how to make it or even how to make a pattern. I can not buy a leotard because I can never find one that fits me because I'm both tall and skinny. I'm looking for something like this~ [IMG]http://www.northshoreballetcentre.com.au/images/products/prod_leotard_navy_L09.jpg[/IMG]

Seems like tall + skinny would be the standard size for most dancer leotards. But, what do I know?

I looked real quick at google for what Princess Tutu looks like, and.. well, I found [URL="http://veryirie.blogspot.com/2011/07/adult-tutu-diy.html"]several[/URL] [URL="http://www.onethousandtutus.com/makeatutu.asp"]tutorials[/URL] on making the tulle fullness portion of a tutu. You could probably [URL="http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/lace-strapless-dress"]download this pattern[/URL] for the bodice. Fudge it on the skirting that goes on top of the tulle.. Decorate and embellish to taste. But if it's for Halloween you better hurry!
