Trying to make a Domo cosplay (1st cosplay ever :O) so I'd like some tips =] .

I've asked around and someone told me I should use potato sacks for the limbs, I'm guessing Hessian potato sacks? Or would something else do better? For the head I'll most likely be using a cardboard box. So, if you can picture me (or any other person) with a cardbox box on their head, potato sacks on both legs and arms (I'll have other clothes on underneath ), where would I go from there? I'll be dressing it in brown fabric, then white, red and black for the face parts. The only problem I think I'll have is connecting the potato sacks to whatever I wear on my body (which I also need help with).

Thanks .

Potato sacks? That's very interesting to say the least! For the arms and legs I'd just sew it around your arms, or use cardboard tubes for the arm shapes and foam for around your hands and sew the fabric around that ^_^

Thanks, I'm kinda confused though as I'm new to this, and I never took textiles at school XD . So, will I need to sew the fabric onto an old shirt or something? I don't have dummies.

Yaaaay! Domo-kun! 8D
I was going to cosplay him a couple years ago so I have a few ideas.

The cardboard box idea is good, I was going to do that too lol! I've never heard of the potato sack idea though, it's the first I've heard of it. I can see why because of the texture but I would've just gone for something simple like felt or fleece!

I'd sew the fabric so that it fits the cardboard box and then sew on the arms and legs onto the fabric cover. That way you can slip in and out of it rather than making a bodysuit underneath. It'll save all that hassle at least.

Hmm, I don't think I'd have the ability to just sew it out of thin air, so I'll probably have to sew it onto clothes that I already have, that will still work right? The legs and arms won't be connected to the body though.
