Post here about some of your trials and tribulations making cosplays Smile

My toughest was Harley Quinn...since it's the only one iv'e made so far. But there were so many different aspects that were reallllllly tough to work out!
I tink the neck thing was the hardest and i'm still not happy with it today!

Mine was probably Tayuya just because of the stupidly massive butt bow!

I've never really made a cosplay as such, closest thing has to be my latest Halloween costume; the Welder from the John Defoe games (a point and click horror mystery from Yahtzee Croshaw). I made a leather apron, welding mask and machete for it, the machete was flimsy and lame looking, mask looked better and wasn't too bad to wear. But jesus, the apron, oh gods, the apron. That was a difficult one to pull off...

well, it wasn't the whole cosplay, but i can tell you the hardest prop i've ever tried to make - a fully modular pistol/assult rifle/sniper rifle, with multiple ammo forms and a backpack supply, plus carry space for the lot. it was ambitious, and it fell to bits...:-(

ah, that apron - if you still look for them, you can find the fake blood stains on the sofa arm, the floor, and my trousers

interesting way to do a bustle is to take a separate piece of fabric from the dress, bunch it, the secure the rest of the fabric in overlapping waves with lots of safety pinns - works out as a removable, and easily alterable alternative
