Alrighty, well next year (2012) I will be going to the New York Anime Con in October I'm extremely excited because this will be the first ever con I've gone to, and also the first time I've ever made my own clothing. Now, I'm going to be cosplaying as Sasuke (from shippuden) and I was wondering if anyone had any tips with sewing (I sew by hand and don't know how to use a sewing machine). I probably won't have the money to have a mannequin (or whatever you call them .-3-.) so i'll be using a makeshift one, probably cardboard or something.
I'd really love to see what idea's/tips anyone has for my first time with sewing a whole outfit. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
