What fabrics to use ?
Hey everyone,
i'm planning to make a tier 5 priest cosplay, but i can't seem to get my head around the fabrics that would work the best. And i'm not that much of an expert regarding all the different kinds of fabric that exist ^^
What would you guys suggest?

I'd recommend going to your local fabric shop with this image and actually browsing through all the fabrics there for a good choice.

Myself, I'd use a silky/satiny/shot taffeta for the light blue (a light fabric) and then a heavy fabric for the skirt, I'd personally go for something similar to suede or velvet for texture, but then I like to spend ridiculous amounts on my outfits lol

Again, go to your local shop and browse. You'll also get a good idea for prices too.

And they can help as well :3

I made my t5 priest on a budget, ended up using mostly polycotton. It isn't the best quality, but is so easy to work with, drapes pretty well once you get the pattern right!

Here is mine for ref;

I did run out of time to finish the top half properly, and ended up just wearing a blue top ><

Good Luck!

I tend not to plan what material I will need for a cosplay - your best bet is to write down the colours you will need and how much of each , then go down to your local fabric shop and check to see what they have in sock. They tend to be really helpful in most shops too, so ask them if you have any questions about particular materials
