NEED help with part of costume(or advice)
OK ive been trying to figure this out simply, im stumped, this character im doing on his sides he has rope each side redy goldy rope(which isnt the problem as colour i can paint) but the thing is i have no idea were to get rope this thick(the chains connecting it im making from femo)but the rope itself i have looked like, EVERYWERE and i cannot find any rope that thick, ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

those look more like those things you get to tie curtains back than rope.....

but you can try braiding it yourself? we did it in junior school once with toilet paper and you couls pull someone along the floor with it. it looks pretty effective too. you need to get the length you need and wrap the toilet paper stirpes around and around itself you'd need about 8 of these. then wrap 2 of the 8 together (all of them in 2s) then wrap the 4 pieces together so you have 2 lengths of ropey stuff. bend it to the right shape and paint with PVA. the only thing with real rope is that it's HEAVY when it's that thick and it looks like a heavy cosplay to bein with. hope that helps a little. ><

EDIT: obviuosly you don't need to used toilet paper. you can use sheets of tissue paper too. ><
