"Father, father please don't meet with that man." Called Elle as she struggled to keep up with her father's long strides as they passed down one of the many great red-carpeted corridors of Hyrule castle. He was on his way to meeting of Parliament to prepare for a ceremony that would unite the countries of Hyrule and Gerudo together creating a powerful and unbreakable alliance. Zelda and Ellie were all for the alliance however it was their leader which was a cause for concern.
The exotic Gerudo race consisted entirely of women living in a large medieval fort out the middle of the Gerudo dessert secluded from the rest of the world. Only one man would be born unto the tribe every one hundred years and he had the right to rule the tribe until he died. Ellie still struggled to understand the concept of their ability to reproduce. Zelda had mentioned briefly about them enticing lost men but refused to go into any kind of detail. Nonetheless the Gerudo, apart fro
|What is the easiest fabric to use? |
For me personally it's cotton, be it pure of a mix such as polycotton because it's very versatile and can be used to make many different things, it also doesn't fray and is quite sturdy. However it all depends on the look you're going for if you just want something generic to start off then just use cotton. Also with cotton you don't have to alter you sewing machine much.
What do you cast your gems out of?
I usually use an epoxy resin to make my gems and I make all my molds myself from latex. However epoxy resin is extremely expensive so I'm hoping to switch to a polyester resin which is so much cheaper.
How do you get patterns on your cosplay?
Usually I have a few generic patterns I have and then I usually modify them. I would recommend using patterns Simplicity patterns which you can purchase from any fabric shop. I would also recommend if you're starting out to find cosplays with very simple parts which you can modify without much hassle or even not at all. If you're unsure about your pattern then I would advise you to make your patterns out of a cheap fabric such as calico and then you can see what needs changing and what doesn't.
Tips on measurements?
Generally, it depends on the cosplay and the pattern. When buying patterns they usually say the measurements for each size. I would recommend following these and it would be ideal if you can get someone else to do your measurements. The usual ones needed are hips, waist, chest/bust.
What sewing machine do you use?
I use a Janome 7025 which compared to my previous machine, is an absolute dream to use. It's very trusty and extremely simple to use. It's not the most expensive and not the cheapest but it does the job. I've seen some really awesome cheap ones for approx. £50 and they've gotten some pretty good reviews, just a limited number of stitches. That doesn't really matter unless you're want to do something intricate.
