Chii dress material help? :)
Post By Tails. 04/12/09, 05:42 am

Hey guys! So I'm going material shopping tomorrow, but I can't decide on what kind of fabric to use for Chii's butterfly dress. I've seen cosplayers use both satin or cotton, but would satin be a bit tacky for this outfit? Figured I'd ask you guys to save me standing in spotlight going "UMMMMMMMM" for an hour...

Any advice appreciated! :)


Spoiler:
 


EDIT
I ended up buying princess satin, a bit more expensive but it's SO PRETTY

I think satin wouldn't be that great? D:
You probably want something a bit thicker then that. SILK IS LOVE. But I'm not sure if that's quite right either... O-o Something with a little sheen anyway?
In the end cotton would be fine, I think? :3
DON'T HOLD ME TO ANYTHING I SAY.

It's a very pretty costume~ <3
Prepare to be piczor raeped.

Ooo silk! I've never used that. I was thinking the same thing that a little sheen would be good, but not super shiny like satin is.

& I welcome the piczor raep

What Duckeh said-cotton would do in a pinch, but something with a little bit of a sheen to it would be lovely.

Maybe bridal satin?
It's like satin, but less shiny and a little thicker and easier to sew.
Also a little more expensive. But probably still cheaper than silk.

A really nice cotton would work very well, because the dress isn't that formal looking. Maybe some kind of blend, and not too thin. But if you do go for a satin type material, go fo something that isn't very shiny (bridal satin like SpamTomatoSpam suggested), as too shiny wouldn't really go with the dress style Very Happy
