Hello Hello.

I've been shopping for my cosplay('s) for some weeks now and I'm still having issues with finding Shiro's bodysuit.
For one, the quality is very important to me ... I've been all over Ebay,Amazon, and any other possible sites, I still am not very happy with what I've found.
I've considered making it myself but then I'd have to worry about finding a body suit.
Which I'd also have issues finding.

I guess why I'm posting this is for some friendly help.
I need this suit and well if you know of any really well made Shiro suit's ?? Accessories ?? Props ?? Tutorials or even your own little "Whatevers"... please share.

- I've most things for Shiro, but I would not mind Link's, Tip's, and any extra ideas that may pull this cosplay together.





Willing to help you as well, let's say you needed any kind of help with what you're pulling together.
Even second opinions on your shopping.
I'm more than welcome to help. !!

Can't help with most of that, but for a bodysuit, I'd suggest http://www.riversedgedancewear.com/ - I've bought all of mine from them - great service and quality, but you do need to order the suit well ahead of time.

Once you have that, the markings could probably be done with swimwear fabric (you can buy that at a local fabric store) or paint if you needed.

Ah great thanks, How much time do the deliveries for this site usually take !? estimate.
Are these bodysuit at all transparent, insanely hot or anything considerable !?

I want to say my last one took about 6 weeks from the time I ordered to the time it arrived - it can vary based on if it's recital season at schools and such, but they try to warn about that on their page and when you order.

The suits I've bought were all opaque - lime green, dark blue, and black of http://www.riversedgedancewear.com/lonsleevmocn.html - and so long as you're moving, they stay pretty cool. Have you ever worn an Underarmor tight fitting shirt? It's a very similar experience.

With Shiro, since you're not putting anything over it, you should stay cool, except possibly in the headgear area. Be sure to mention to them if you order that you won't be putting anything on over the bodysuit, though - they might have some recommendations for any size adjustments or what to wear under it, or possibly even fabric options to use since some are more see-through than others.

Ahh well thank you again, much appreciated. I'll look into this since some of these are pretty neat. Inspired to do a Princess Tutu now....

- I actually found myself a custom body suit where I can have them alter it into a headless...and not sure if I want the hands removed yet possibly considerable. Once I have that, some paint and prayer so that I do not ruin it or else I am pretty much a goner. I think I'll work on the gloves myself, well mittens. All should be smooth sail after...since
I've purchased my wig, contacts, (makeup always) !! I'm quite excited for them to arrive.
