So, I got the Rainbow Dash plans ready. Probably because it's the easiest one design wise, but I'm sure I'm going to shoot myself in the hand while doing the decorative border for the himation. I will probably never learn to do this so that I don't put in amazing details that that forever to finish, am I?
Oh well, to the plans.
Originally I had only thought about wool and linen for the material, but I'm not sure if the cosplayer can wear those materials. I did find a mention from Herbert Norris's book Ancient European Costume and Fashion, that silk and cotton were imported in small amounts after Alexander the Great's conquests and expeditions. There is also mention to samet being imported from which the nobles paid fabulous sums for it. So, if the cosplayer cannot wear wool or linen, I can use cotton or silk and still be period accurate. More or less. Like I could be period accurate of an ancient Grecian fashion in 2014.... How silly of me.
Anyway, back to the topic.
On the himation I took a small liberty. Normally himation is a rectangle piece of clothing, but since in the design the himation is shorter on the other end and sort of trails on the floor, I had to make the lower and sloped. I still feel that I might have to make the short end even shorter. Maybe 110cm will suffice, I don't know, I need to adjust it at some point.
That's it for tonight. Nighty night children! Allons-y!
