Could you make a tutorial on how to make Rin's Bow tie? Or should it just be a longer version of Rin's bow? ; 3 ;

Oh! I think if you make a longer version of her bow it should work the same way~ Just make sure you have a place to sew on something to attach it to her shirt.

If you have any specific questions about what to do when you start I am here to help <3 Good luck!

Hello there xD

I'm too lazy to log into my account so I'm on my groups account cause I was checking messages ouo
Anyway, I'm making my Rin cosplay and I was wondering why the bow looks so flat after I tie it? Well of course it's probably cause well...I tied it xD but I can't seem to get it all big and poofy like it's supposed to be :/

I think it all depends on what fabric you used. If you used something that isn't very stiff it will look flat.

I suggest finding the opening again and stuffing in some stuffing/scrap fabric/tissues and that might help~

Sorry I can't think of a better way to help that doesn't involve untying your bow ^ ^; If you wanted you could also cut a new hole and then hand sew it back up after you have stuffed. Just make sure that your stitching is neat~

Good luck!!~

Is it possible to have a template? Also, what fabric did you use?
Reply

Nayori Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
The reason why I don't have a template is because it all depends on what size you want your ribbon to be. The way to figure this out is to plan your template first. Draw the ribbon the exact size you need and then add a 1/4 inch around the edges. This will give you the room you need to sew~ (I made my ribbon WAY to big the first time around so I had to go back and sew it smaller)

If you are having trouble deciding what size to make it, think of it like this: one of the football shaped sides will turn into one ear of the ribbon. Cut out a piece of paper in the shape and size of what you are thinking and hold it to your head in front of a mirror. Is it the right size? If it is, go ahead and make the other side the same size. Don't forget to add space on the edge.:D

As for the fabric, try to use something that is light and not too transparent. I made the bow on the spur of the moment so I went with what I had, which was a white cotton with a white pattern over the top.

Sorry for such a long reply ^ ^; If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

Any tutorials on how to tie the scarf, bow thing so its nice and puffy? XD
Reply
:iconnayori:
Nayori Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Well the main reason I used wire in mine was to shape the bow~

And you really need to fluff it after you tie it, its not that hard as long as you can somehow manipulate the wire.

I hope this helps! ^ ^ ~

Hmmmm... Is there any way you can insert wire? Or stuff it with some sort of stuffing? xD;

Unfortunately I don't know of any other way... Good luck though!

Oh wow!! Yeah, its possible to make it, just cut the fabric out half black and half white. You will have 1 more step of sewing to sew both the white and black together but other than that it will be the same~

Good luck!! I want to see it when its done, Meltdown is one of my favorite Rin songs~ <3

but I have heard that Len keeps some to make his hair stand up so that it is impossible to style a wig after his hair xD

Good luck!~

The wire holds the fabric up so that it stands up~ There isn't a point to a bow that lays flat right? xD
