I've got my crinoline already since I had one from my Tsubasa Sakura. I'm going to go and get some inspiration for what kind of fabric I'll use. The cotton they have is okay, but it's thin and very stiff. I want something floaty without it being shiny. Any suggestions would be great.

Patterns are proving hard to find too, even if I have to do some heavy modding, it'd be nice if at least some similar to Flower's dress would make themselves known to me!! *shakes fist*

An opaque floaty fabric which I like is georgette. I've only used it once but I really like it and am using it for future projects. It can be see through depending on quality but only when bright lights are shone through it, or how the light is reflected. So you may want to either have a cotton underskirt or line it with cotton or lining fabric.

I'm probably going to be using a mixture of cottons and georgette myself.

Crepe is also a good fabric to use. There's also different variations of crepe fabric which are worth looking into. Thicker than georgette but still has a lovely drape. I'll be using that for one of my Summer cosplays so can help feedback on what it's like for big dresses if you like? As that's exactly what I will be making over the Summer.

Seconding crepe, especially crepe de chine, it has a beautiful drape and lovely texture, it's just a total ass to work with pinning and cutting wise DX

I was fearing that someone was pulling out then for a moment XD Things have slowed down after a busy week of everyone flooding in. It's good - really good!

Worth looking around now if people want very specific materials for their cosplay, I finally found the right material for watery's tail, just have to wait til Septemeber for it to be in stock.

LOL Really can't wait to get started on these costumes now. Already in planning mode. Which is brilliant as I'm never this organised. Also have Ursula (Little Mermaid) planned out and in progress already and I'm not doing her until 2014.....lol Planning is good....

Don't burn yourself out with them all, I know you've got a long time, but spread it out!

I'm so excited about this. I didn't know anyone very well before starting this, but it's great that I've built up some kickass friendships with a lot of you in this group. It's quite amazing how much can come from being a part of a group!

i have to start early with mine and it still takes long to do as i work a have a toddler (who will cosplay kohaku in cherub form when i get round to it. )

I've met so many awesome people through CLAMP *huggles everyone*

WE should arrange some meet and greets and pre mets and stuff once we all get the ball rolling

Hello again! I was just wondering if it'd be alright for me to switch from Meilin to The Freeze? (I believe it’s still free.) I’ve had a costume idea brewing in my head for a while now and realised I’d probably be pretty gutted if I didn’t get the chance to work on it. xD


08 May 2012 - 01:3783646
Thats great to hear! Freeze is still available so I'll switch you now. I'm really excited for you!


08 May 2012 - 16:2783662
If it's still open, I'll be The Sand Card. (: <3

You've no idea how much I'm both dreading and super excited about making that headpiece/hat. So far I've made a prototype in paper, but it's just not as good, man. xD

Also: toddling over to facebook to join the group noooow.

Thought I'd give this a bump just to see if there is any more interest for the last few cards.


20 May 2012 - 21:1984380
You missed out the Nothing card I think... though I guess technically it's just the Hope card not hugging the Nameless card...

I might be interested in the Nameless card, The Libra card or the Create card.

Yeah I left it off for that reason, and since someone decided to take up Hope.

Lemme know if you decide on a particular card and I can pop you on the list

Ooh, could I claim The Jump please? =D
