Patches/badges
I've been looking for this patch for a cosplay I want to do:



I haven't seen anywhere that sells this patch, so I was wondering if anyone had any advice about patches. If you know of anyone who makes custom patches or you can make patches, that'd be really helpful too.

Thanks ^_^

Well, the image exists, so the patch must, somewhere. What's it from?

If you can't find it, all I can suggest is painting it onto a slightly padded bit of fabric in that shape then sewing it to the costume.

know of anywhere that owns an embroidery machine? they're cool, the machine scans the picture in for you, then you hit go and it sews it! maybe if you got a simple version of that (ie: print out and use felt tip pens on tracing paper to get block colours) you could do it?

Oooh, that's a really great plan, there's one of those places near where I live. I didn't realise you could get them to do anything you liked though unless you were buying in bulk. Though it had to be just writting and stuff, but I'm prolly exceedingly wrong. I'll have to keep that in mind for if I ever need something unusual made into a patch... *strokes imaginary beard*

If embroidery's not possible, and you don't feel up to painting it, I've had success with t-shirt transfer paper for creating patches. All you need to do is clean up that image or a better one, print it off, and iron it on. I usually iron on the designs to felt first, so it's a separate piece just like a real patch, and then sew it on to the garment.

that's a good idea!

Pudding: i might be wrong. but i was going along the lines of borrowing a college or school one. sometimes they have them. from a shop you're probably right about the bulk

Have you considered embroidering it yourself by hand? It's much easier than you think. (that is if you can't get your hands on an embroidering machine!!!!)

I'm working on an embroidering tutorial at the mo so I'd be happy to explain the basics to you

This might not be very helpful but I needed a badge for a cosplay and after hours of searching on ebay I finally found one.
