Ok.
I was KINDA thinking on doing Ayame from Inuyasha >.>;;

Seeing as how I don't have any $$$ for materials..Esp. FUR!!! xDDD;;

I was wondering..would white fleece be a good subsitute(sp) for it?
Seeing as how I already have the fleece material..? @_@

Do you think it would look right?
>w>

Does it matter?
I mean..I'd put effort into it, as much as possible to make it look good..but yea.

Any help/tips?

Thanks~

Fleece would work...I mean-fur can be somewhat expensive-have you checked out local fabric stores for the grizzly fleece-it comes in white and is a fairly good quality...It's not too pricey-but,something to think about.If nothing else I think that the fleece would work;)
Good luck either way!

It wouldn't be too bad to use real fur. She just has a shawl and small-ish skirt. You can find them cheap from Native American craft supply sources like Crazy Crow, with whom I have done much business, or you could find some faux fur and line it with some cheap canvas or muslin. You can find full size blankets made from the stuff for about $50 bucks with a quick google search.

I'd go thrift shop surfing before resorting to fleece. I think It would work okay, but a fur would obviously look better.

Get on the Joann's mailing list so you can get coupons. Seriously, it helps out alot!!!

I suggest fur, faux fur is fine; fleece just wouldnt look right.

And yah for IY cosplayers! Too bad I retired my Sesshy last year. :blink:

Oh, and I did my 'Fluffy' for around $30, and it was alot of fur.
I have zombies and I'm not afraid to use them!!

Thanks for the tips guys.
:heart:

But, I decided not to cosplay Ayame.
x_x;;

But thanks alot! I might do it another time.

I don't think I'd look right as an Ayame right now, and I want a Koga too.
xDDDDD;; I'm just being weird.

But thanks alot!

Awe. That would have been cool.
I would do Ayame..but maybe not now v_v;;

But. I would like to meet you at Acen. Koga is one of my faves from Inuyasha. X3
Along with some others. >.>;;

But for now, I'll just work on my own designed outfits. >.<;;
