Cosplay is all about taking fantasy and turning it into reality, but sometimes conceptualizing what materials to use can be the hardest part. Imagine a Trinity Blood cosplay made entirely out of cotton and you'll understand that different fabrics are integral to making a costume look authentic.

Learn to determine fabric weights, and get construction tips for translating costumes from 2D to 3D.
