Doxie Queen has a pretty good writeup on how she made her Royal Milk Tea sleeves, and Truly Victorian has one of the best corset patterns around. Sleeves and corsets are both pretty complicated, so I’d recommend finding a pattern that fits the style you want :)

Major disclaimer: The original post is just a copypasted collection of tweets. Reika didn’t write down every single step of the process, there are some repetitions and overall a lot of mentions of the Japanese 100-Yen supermarket chain Daiso. You can find several Daiso Internationals in America (mostly in Northern California) but for those who don’t have access to those handy stores, try Walmart or general hobby stores!
If you have any questions you consider asking me, please read this first.
Since it’s already spread over twitter, I’ll just leave the copypasta containing all of my tweets over here~.
■I will add a PS at the bottom.
But first of all, pictures of the finished product.
Some minor adjustments and fine-tuning might be necessary, but this is more or less how it is.
Now some pictures while having it equipped.
Also some photos after I did various adjustments here and there. This one’s the most recent status （＾ⅴ＾）
Beautiful and extremely detailed 3d Maneuver Gear tutorial!
Please reblog for visibility :)
As most of you know, I’m a cosplayer, not a photographer. I did, however, use Katsucon as an opportunity to experiment with my DSLR during the times I was out of cosplay. If you’re interested in the photos, I will be posting my favorites to the cosplayconnect Tumblr as they get edited, and to CosplayConnection.net, along with the full convention report, when I am done with all of them.
If you are looking for photos of yourself or a friend, please message me and I will do my best to answer you privately- NOT anonymously because I have to publish those! (I’ll just delete anon asks for photos, sorry). I will also be posting/ reblogging Katsucon photos on cosplayconnect, so follow if you want to see them (no other photos will be posted here)
I hope everyone who went to Katsucon had an amazing time! I know the photography rules were stressful but I hope it didn’t ruin your con experience!
I'm planning on making Belle's golden ballgown and I was wondering if there was some kind of etiquette surrounding a large costume like that? Do you have a keeper or something? What do you do when you're walking the halls or want to see a panel but hey, walking through doors is kind of complicated right now?
I’m not gonna wait to answer this one because I think this is important. I have several large costumes, including oversized skirts, hoops and really long trains. If you aren’t sure if you can handle the costume by yourself, you absolutely need to have a reliable handler, someone who can hold bangs during pictures, fix your skirt/ wig, make sure your hoop isn’t sticking out… Not only will this make your con easier, but it’s more convenient for you as the cosplayer, photographers, and the people around you.
