Hey Guys I wanted to start making some tutorials on cosplay technique so I made one for torn fabric.

When I started my San dress I was really worried about the edging since I didn't want to ruin the dress but wanted iy to look torn. I couldn't find much online on how to do torn edges (really wasn't looking that hard either), so I just kinda winged it. I made this to show how I did it. Any and all feedback is appreciated :)

edit: Lol typos

These tutorials are intended to be helpful advice to beginner cosplayers. I am by no means an expert at sewing.

Tutorial made by me. Do not reproduce.

Here is a tutorial for how to create a sailor collar - I made a Sailor Mercury collar, but it can be used for other things besides Sailor Moon costumes, such as school uniforms - just modify the pattern as needed!

Pattern: [link]

Print it out and paste it together. The Eternal Sailor fuku sleeves are also here. I may draw out and scan a new version in the future, but I don't have access to a scanner over the summer.

So I needed to make this tutorial for some friends in a Utena group so our collars will match and I decided why not just make it a general tutorial and share it? Hope it helps anyone who is interested! <3
Like I stated in the tutorial normally I'd slip the collar into the lining and shirt material but since it isn't lined I putt he shirt material into the collar.

If there's any typos or confusing grammar, let me know. I did my best to proofread. >o<

Helpful Hints:


If you have a padded cup, traditionally, the pad goes under the bust to push up the breast. Yoko, however, has what is affectionately known as “underboob”, so if you intend to attempt underboob, you may consider facing the padding in a different direction so that it lays better and doesn’t want to fall under your bust like it is designed to. Mine, for instance, are on the insides, facing each other, as I found this most comfortable.

You may line your pads if you like. I left mine unlined and it has not been a bother to me.

When applying the cord around the neck and on the front, make sure your cord is not twisted and will lay flat when worn.

The reason I don't recommend PVC (especially non stretch) is that because it is not a regular fabric with just fibers, as it is treated with a chemical on top, so once you punch a hole in it with the needle, that hole is not going to recover very well. In other words, if you mess up and have to rip out some stitches, it's probably going to show. On top of that, if it's non stretch, PVC doesn't drape very well. =P


Also note, this is simply how I made my top! Many people alter plain bikinis or sew their own, but I like the shape and fit of the padded bikini cups as opposed to a flat triangle. ;P On top of that, it's rather sleek! There is more than one way to cosplay, so be sure to check out some other tutorials if you're needing extra assistance. In the meantime, I'd love to answer any questions you may have.

This seamless trim technique is a method Iíve been using for years to add custom trim to my costumes without any top-stitching at all.

Similar in a way to bias tape, but with many key differences in implementation and results. No one taught me this technique, but now Iím teaching it to you! Please read through all the instructions before asking any further questions, and happy trim-making! C:

Apologies for the length, it's more complicated than it looks!

I love love love tutorials, and have always wanted to make one so I thought I would document the process of my Kitty Pryde wig.

Like the tutorial says, I'm still very new to correctly styling a wig, so if any one has any suggestions or tips, I'm always open to hearing them! I got a lot of help on the Arda Wig forum before I bought the wig and how to go about cutting/styling it.
