Thank you!

Hah, I made a stencil and painted it on with yellow acrylic paint. If you do this method I recommend using fabric paint! Acrylic tends to crack and bleed a lot easier, I got really lucky with how this turned out.

Wow, thank you!

Haha, I'm not actually that tall, it's the camera angle. I'm only 5'3''.

Wow, you make a great Rose! What did you use to make your dress and hood? Where did you get it?

Thank you!

I used fabric bought from joannes, hah. The hood was a thick jersey knit, but the dress was made out of kiiiiiind of crappy material! I blindly sewed it by essentially tracing myself on to the fabric (awful idea, I do not suggest). I also suggest a stretchy fabric for the dress, because it will make it MUCH easier to get on and off.

Ah, thank you for the advice. I've actually been to Joanne's recently and saw a similar color in a similar fabric, but didn't know to get it or not. Sure is a nice color though!

Haha yeah, thanks, I definitely went for color accuracy over comfort and I'm really happy with out it came out! If you do use a non-stretchy fabric I suggest planning out your pattern beforehand.... mine actually has a large hole in the back of it that I pin together because I just kind of improvised it. Whoops.

Maybe I could get a similar fabric, but sew in a zipper or something in the back. That way it'll be easier to get on. It'll be covered by the hood anyway, and stretchy fabric is harder to find in an accurate color. Or was the fabric actually uncomfortable to be in?

Aahhh yes, I would have used a zipper if I actually did the pattern right! So I'd say this type of fabric would be fine to use, just plan your pattern accordingly. It wasn't really uncomfortable, but it was kind of thin, so it was basically the worst thing to wear in cold weather. Although the hood was really nice and warm.

Ah, my cosplay isn't due until June in Texas, so thin material would be fantastic. :D
The only reason I'm working on it now is because the person assisting me is traveling abroad for the next few months, and besides, I have the money now.
Again thank you so much for your help!

Ahh, Texas would be hot in June. Thin fabric would work way better for you in that case.

No problem! Good luck!
