I need guidance on how to create hidden/invisible zippers
Cosplays 2012: Tuxedo Mask (Sailor Moon)- 95% fixing the mask, getting real buttons. Maybe sexier jacket?
Charlotte Elbourne (Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust)- 5%
New! Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)-6% I ordered the shoes and have the makeup. Now for the hard parts...

You..buy the zipper and follow the instructions?

What sort of garment is it going in to? where on the garment? How long?

Can I ask a question? What do you guys do about your eyebrows to make them match your wig?

The method a couple of my friends and I use is one my sister kinda helped me think of. XD You get chapstick, goes on clear if possible you don't want some odd color, and put it on your eyebrows putting a fair amount on. Than take eyeshadow in the color you want and put it over your chapsticked eyebrows and tada. =3 It works for us.

I'm trying to figure out how to make Char Aznable's helmet, and maybe his cape. I'm not sure how familiar people are with Char, but his helmet close enough to Darth Vader's helmet that if I knew how to make or acquire that, then I could easily make it look like Char's.

What are some cool halloween costume ideas that dont have to be bought? I dont want to spend any money on a costume this year so something that would involve everyday clothing items would be great. Solo costumes or group costume ideas are great. Thanks for the help.

Does anyone have any idea about making something out of Chinese-y silky materials? I'm cosplaying China, but I don't have the actual top yet, just a generic Chinese top. I'd like to make it, but I don't know how difficult that would be.

If you don't have access to a surger then use a rolled hem or french seam. Brocade unravels like a fiend and can be miserable to work with on that front. Be careful you also don't end up using something to shiny, shiny on something that doesn't obviously call for it often can make a costume look cheap under con lighting and flash photography, no matter how well made.

Thanks. Yeah, I think I'll just use something else that's easier to work with.

Honestly I think a nice cotton would not only be more accurate but would look better.

Yeah, I think that's what I'll do. He doesn't seem to wear anything that looks shiny, now that I think about it. It's just implied with the Chinese.

The shirt is pretty simple... it's pretty much a dress that doesn't connect at the sides so you could probably go get a dress from a good will and just cut the sides open and use that as a pattern of sorts.
The hat? maybe take a normal baseball cap, and use that sorta as a pattern, the sides that roll up? Extra fabric and interfacing.

I haven't even started on my actual costumes ^w^' Hopefully i'll still be able to manage two awesome ones in two months.

I'm working on Shinobu's outfit in NMH2, but still can't find a decent wig. She also has a katana harness, and while it appears to be made out of leather in the game, i don't have leather money. Also any fabric suggestions would help a lot. I've been looking at JoAnns in the swimwear/dancewear section, with the stretch fabrics, but i'm not sure how well that would take to the box pleats in the dress.

Any and all suggestions would be extremely appreciated

here are some pictures:
