I put up a post recently where I was embroidering my tunic for my kit, the cloak I ordered for that costume arrived today and I wanted some advice on further customizations I was planning (also didn’t know if Jacquard ribbon is the name of thing im intending to use, I found the term online looking for similar products).
Here is the costume in full so far:
I wanted to add a decorative trim, so I was thinking maybe something like this: Greek Lookalike Braids – Herts Specialist Fabrics around the sleeves of the tunic to include more of the magic element.
I was also thinking of either or additionally adding a trim like this: Selection of Tudor Braids – Herts Specialist Fabrics to the edge of the cloak itself. I should mention its meant to be Highguard so was going for a religious kind of feel with the cloak trim.
Let me know what you think of these ideas (mainly worried it’ll be too much and detract from the kit as a whole), if you think two would be too many or any other advice or suggestions about my set.
