Tip Tuesday #93
Use a variety of references for your costume! Aim for official pictures of the front, back and side view but also look at fanart and other cosplayers to help make sense of a complicated design, or make decisions about the costume.
This is great for characters with hair that is depicted as two different colours (such as blue or black). Looking at other cosplayers can help determine which looks best in real life, and fanart can let you know what the widely-accepted colour is.
