Do any of you have advise on making chaps? My bf wants to make this costume. http://www.geocities.jp/ges_penst/TOYTR
This character has a giant gun prop which is what my boyfriend is going to make and since I am the one in the house that can sew I get the lovely challange of making the actual costume. So yeah I have no idea how to go about making chaps. My skills are minimal but I can follow a pattern or a tutorial of some sort. And then I have another question. His collar and the top his chaps kind of stick up and out. How would one go about doing that? I was thinking wire of some sort. Also I know about starching but I have never really done it and don't know if it would be the best thing for this project. Thanks in advance!
Also this is cross-posted so sorry if you see it more then once!
