Here is a little guide to the types of needles and their uses. In the article it goes into the meaning of the numbers. Which is really useful. Remember the wrong needles can cause skipped stitches, thread/bobbin problems and a broken needle. So using the correct needle is highly important.

Some fabric/fiber basics

ciciascloset:

Can I say that I am totally in love with this blog? It’s awesome!

One of the most basic problems in cosplay is choosing the fabric that you’re going to work with. Here’s a couple of Info graphics to help you navigate the vast world of fabrics.

This has a brief description of all the most popular types of fabrics. To help you identify them at the store.

This info graphic is really helpful because it tells you when to use certain fabrics. When on is starting out in cosplay there’s a huge tendency to go for the cheapest fabric. This graphic should really help you navigate that world.

This last one is really a bonus. Not all cosplays are washable but some are and it might be hard to recognize that because there is no tag to tell you. The best way to wash your cosplay, generally speaking, is to prevent them from getting dirty. Have confidence on what you have personally sewn, if you used the right thread, stitches and sealed all the raw edges you should be fine. The first time I threw one of my own garments into the wash I nearly died. Nothing happened all of my worrying was in vain, because I’m a pretty good seamstress.

**Tutorial: Making Your Own Wefts**

(Note I had a hell of a time trying to get these uploaded…)

Interested in making your own wefts out of loose fiber, but the fibers aren’t long enough to use the fold over method? Well, with some excess fabric, thread, and tacky glue, you can make usable wefts that are thick and brushable! Click the above link to learn how!
