Hello people, Im planning to make an Aang fire nation outfit for my lil brother and i was wondering if anyone has a tutorial/tips for making it.I really just need help with the vest part.

#3 shadoworganoid on 8 years ago

Okay, I didnt see any tutorials on this in the forum so I'll post about it.

I need some help on making the feet part of my costume.
Im not going to go into deep detail on the exact costume, but I need a way of making my feet look like bird feet. (the Pokemon Skarmory)

I've been told that shoe cover tutorials could work, but this is way different.

Im looking for something that is fairly accurate in appearance, but also functional for walking around all day.

Thank you.

She's new to cosplay and I'm not an expert. I was lookin for a tutorial explaining how to make her mask. I cant' find anything similar except the mask from Bleach but they are not the same thing... Is it better to make it with a fabric, or with papiermache? And the cloak, how can we make it stiff? Thanx a lot. :)

I'm looking for a boot cover tutorial-- wait wait let me finish. A boot cover tutorial where the cover has a tongue, not a smooth cover. I've taken a look at the many boot cover tutorials on the site, but haven't found anything where the resulting cover has a tongue like the many boots you'd find in the stores.

It's pretty easy to add one. cut and hem the two front sides of the boot and then create and sew in a tongue. You can add gromits and lace up the two front pieces over the tongue.

Is there a certain type of armor method you are looking for? There is everything: making it with foam, cardboard, metal, fiberglass, craftfoam, clay. I'm just going to link you to the armor section of my tutorial list, then just look through for one that you think would work best. Craftfoam tends to be commonly used and yields nice results.

Can you paint the clothes? You can try working with slightly wet tempra paint (the powdered paint that you add water to) in browns, yellows, reds or greens depending what you are going for. You can also lightly dust it on clothes for a dusty effect.

I'm going to be making an Orihime Arrancar outfit soon, and I wondered what pattern somone has used or what anyone else has done in the past. I think I will have the most trouble with the sleeves and the top. Any suggestions? :)
