So I have a few things that I need help with and I'm sorry if any of this has already been posted, but even if you could direct me to the right place to find it that would be great ^^

1) I'm going to cosplay as tinkerbell and I have a pattern for the dress, but I'm thinking I'm probably going to have to alter it a bit for my bust size because I'm bigger up top. Does anyone know how to do this well or can anyone give me some pointers?

2) My friend is cosplaying as Godot, and we can't find his vest for the life of us >.< we keep finding this one online, but they don't make it anymore so does anyone know where we could find a cheap one or if I have to, I'm going to sew it, so does anyone know where to find a free pattern for a vest?

If anyone can help with either of these things it would be much appreciated :)

A reference pic would be nice, I mean, I don't even know who Godot is, so no clue what the vest looks like.

1) add boning into the bodice for support and on the pattern measure out your bust and add a little to each piece to go around you snuggly with the zipper! =3 May or may not add clear bra straps if you are bust worried!

2) pic would be nice

We've seen a few cosplayers that have this one vest that is pretty much perfect. It's a somewhat shiny bronze on the front and has the black on the back.

I would suggest that what you can do is get fabric paint, and the right color fabric. Do a quick mesurement of how thin your lines need to be then draw it out on the fabric, and then paint the lines on the fabric with black.
