help with stockings/socks
Hello.
I like this character Ririchiyo from Inu x Boku, and I want to cosplay her. However her stockings are kind of awkward. It doesn't look like shes wearing a garterbelt.
Maybe someone can help?

Here's a picture

I think you will have to make them?

This tutorial will be a good place to start:

Stocking Tutorial by ~Yuiie

And then combine it with a garterbelt tutorial.

But I would make the vertical garter strips a part of the stocking, and hook onto the belt which looks just like a belt, rather than having the belt having the strips of fabric and attaching to the top of the stockings.

(It's kind of difficult to explain maybe? But that's how I'd approach it.)

You need "suspender tights"

You can buy tights that are dark for the most part, but then become nude at the top and have a printed faux suspender strap. example (not exactly what you want, but they come in many different styles, so you should find something closer)

Actually you can also get ones that have the "nude" parts cut out too. another example

You can actually get those exact stockings from an 'adult' website called lovehoney, maybe try Pamela Mann as well as they do a lot of fancy stockings and tights.

sadly it does look like the stockings, however the holes on the sides go all the way to her knees, if I wore those, they would just look like tights

what you could do is get tights cut them to the aproximate shape you want ans seal the edges with black liquid latex then trim the excess till it looks right would give you the shape you want and the liquid latex would prevent further ripping ..in theory

It looks like you could do with something like these: http://www.stockingsdirect.co.uk/suspender-tights/CLA-H200-BC.html?gclid=CPiW14vy17kCFY_KtAodkn8AQw but I'm not sure if they're opaque enough for you. What you could try to do is get some black leggings or wooly tights, cut the holes out and with the leggings stitch around the hole so it doesn't fray, or with tights get a clear nail polish and paint it around the raw edge to stop the fraying. Hope this helps!
