Where to buy rope?
Post By Tails. 04/11/10, 09:04 am

Sounds like a pretty silly question, but I really have no idea. Warehouse? Gardening...places? ^^;

I just found 2m of random white cotton material in my room, so I'm gonna whip up Ariel's sail dress for the Halloween/xmas party Very Happy Whoo for the easiest cosplay ever! (Please don't step on my feet guys!)
But I need rope. I don't want to have to buy like 10m just for this~

SO YEAH.

ROPE.

Anyone know?

YES! Sail dress! I was so gonna do this one day haha, easiest funnest costume x3 Hmm i know Mitre10 sell rope. But only a few colours, and a few striped ones too [red and green i think. Weird right XD], but they definitely have black! So check em out, i think it was really cheap too, something like $2/m? Though the last time i bought rope from there was 2 years ago so don't take my word for it XD
Unless Ariel uses brown rope, then i don't think Mitre10 could help you out :c I don't remember seeing any brown ones last time i was there, especially that brown rough styled rope they usually use on boats?, but still worth a try~

Shibari Kinbaku being ... erm nvm you can wiki that >>;;

But considering what its used for I would think the rope is relatively strong and resistant?

Hooray you're actually making this! I expect to see our little dance XD And also expect mass amounts of photoshoots.

When i bought rope for my Von Karma whip I bought it by the metre from Mitre10. It was really ropey rope too, it frayed properly at the ends and was made up of the brown strands and everything.
But it's probably cheaper to get it elsewhere.

There is this cheap Asian shop in Auckland, it has shovels with blood already on them.

Also yeah marine shops are likely to be cheaper, if you really want a whole 100m coil. Otherwise Places like M10 that actually do per meter stuff.
