I will rack your brains though - did you use any sort of pattern and alter it? I'm probably going to have the hardest time with the vest me thinks. Pattern maker I'm not, but I can alter a pattern accordingly I reckon. The shorts I've seen a pattern for, and I can probably figure out the cloak. I'll take any tips you're willing to throw at me!
Sorry, I don't use patterns so I can't point you to a good one. I guess any vest would be a good starting point, though. As a tip, don't make the hood to small like mine (or well, I just wish I made it a little bigger)
I need your help! Oh allmighty successfull cosplayer. I'm doing a cosplay for a con in say...3 months. I need help, how did you do the bodice,and other general supposibly leather parts? I don't think i'm doing the ordinary one as i have the underwhirt and it's a tunic, so i'll be doing the other kind, any help? pwease?

Haha It's probably quite obvious when I started making the Smuggler there were just two images! XD
I've never seen that artwork, and I can't remember her having those 'flaps' in game? Ah well, either way, the 'leather' bits are actually pleather (fake leather), which I came across once, years back, used for pants for Remus from Undead Knights, then cut up for Lia... weird, I know, but it was the perfect colour and look I was going for... I used ribbon and bias tape (?? Not sure if that's the right name for it in English, but it's what pops up if I google it!) for the golden details on it.
If you need any specific help, please shout. Sadly I never use patterns or I'd share them! ^_^;
