So I'm wondering how to add the gold details on Cinder Fall's dress from RWBY.

I'm not doing embroidery, I don't have the time or patience to embroider all of that...
I've been told to cut gold fabric and sew it on, but I feel like it would end badly...
Here's a picture of her dress:

Would appliqué be a good idea?
What material should I use for the gold?

You could try Iron-on stuff too if you want. IDK if you can get custom-made iron-on's but I do know that they make some that look embroidered.

You could also try to paint it on.

I can't suggest any applique's because I can't think of any right now but hope those suggestions help.

If I can get custom iron-ons, that'd be great, hanks for the tip
I was thinking of getting appliqué from a fabric ship that looks similar to Cinder's dress and sewing it on, and using gold ribbon where I could

I'm not familiar with using soutache, but by paint do you mean typical fabric paint?

soutache is a thin braid, that comes in many colors, sometimes with an indentation down the middle that helps you sew it down (Gold soutache and other colors as well). It's used in laces, bridal veils and lacy accents like the ones on that dress. Here are some examples of soutache on clothing.

Fabric paint, I was thinking of a high quality brand, like Jacquard Lumiere. It's pricy, but very, very worth it. It works so much better than the less expensive stuff.

Soutache looks a lot easier to work with than the paint, to be honest. Thank you for telling me about this, it looks like it'll be a lot easier to make patterns than I thought it would!
