    Jap 4-1 Bikini Help

    Krig no you do not need to change anything with that pattern. I have made tops like that for up what is called a H in the post above with no problems. Althrough this type of top does not provide a lot of surport so you should inform her of that fact.

    Chainmail Shoes

    Cosplay and armor project..a few questions for an amateur

    As a member of the SCA i can tell you that we do NOT use metal weapons. all weapons are made of rattan or pvc pipe and a few like axes or pole arms have rubber heads. just wanted to clear that up.
