— how to sew a sailor uniform : part 1, sewing the top

fattogami:

2/9/14 UPDATE: I’ll be overhauling this tutorial with actual photos and better written instructions soon so if any of the post seems confusing to you then please check back in a month or so!

Hi! Some lovely anons asked me how I make my sailor uniforms for my DR costumes, so I decided to finally make a post about it! For reference, I use patterns from two Japanese sewing books: Cosmode’s 仮想衣装 and すぐに作れるcos衣装. The latter has a fitted seifuku pattern that I use for all of my Danganronpa costumes in order to achieve the flared effect around the hips! I pattern my own pleated skirts, which I’ll explain in the next post.

!IMPORTANT! Before you ask me where to buy these books, read this post about Japanese patterns! They’re not beginner friendly at all and I can’t recommend them to anyone who isn’t reasonably advanced at sewing, so buy at your own risk!

I can’t promise I’ll be able to explain everything relevant since I’m assuming basic sewing and pattern knowledge in order to keep this as brief as possible, so please send me an ask if you have any further questions! If you have any character-specific questions, feel free to send me an ask as well!

Also, as a fair warning, I use a fair amount of tools that people might not have on hand, such as a rotary cutter. I include suggestions on how to get the same outcome without those tools, but I can’t promise it’ll be as neat or look the same.

— Dangan Ronpa cosplay taobao search terms

I’ve seen a few of these before but I wanted to make my own yeah.

if you put a minus sign in front of a search term it will be filtered out (eg if you don’t want wigs to show up put -假发 after whatever search terms you’ve already put in).

ive bolded and italicised search terms (or parts of terms) that will give you more results if you put them by themselves (eg 弹丸 cos 苗木 will give you more results than 弹丸 cos 苗木诚 for naegi)

ill make an sdr2 one if enough people want one or if i get bored

Dangan Ronpa = 弹丸 (dangan ronpa is written as either 弹丸论破 OR 弹丸轮舞 so putting just 弹丸 gives you more results)

cosplay = cos (some sellers use cosplay too but if you just put “cos” entries with both cos and cosplay will show up.)

prop = 道具

glasses = 眼镜

shoes = 鞋

clothes = 服

wig = 假发

badge/pin = 徽OR 胸

tongue = 舌头

ring = 戒 (good for celes cosplayers)

tie = 领带

gloves = 手套

crown = 皇冠

socks =

scissors = 剪刀 (add 袋 for bag)

plush = 公仔 OR 玩偶

hair accessory = 发饰

hair clip = 发夹

Finally took a pic of the presentation play Stocking wig I got a few weeks back!! I bought it secondhand off ebay and there’s no brand tag so unfortunately I won’t be reviewing it u_u

The blouse I’m wearing may or may not be the one I’ll be using.

Got my Minato headphones in the mail yesterday!!!! Big thanks to my aunty in Taiwan who bought them for me!
For anyone curious, these are sold in both retail and online shops in Taiwan, so if you can find a proxy or if you know someone in Taiwan you can get these pretty easily.
