Random Cosplay Tips #6: Pin to the rescue… again !
I really shouldn’t be sharing such a …lazy bad habit. But I was doing the laundry just now and spotted something on my Haruhi skirt. So I whipped out my camera and decided to blog about this erm…. despicable trick of mine =X
This is a trick I’ve been using for TOO LONG and TOO MUCH. But it does saves a lot of time when you’re rushing costumes.
Basically, it’s using our trusty safety pins in place of the ‘Bar’ for any hook and bar fasteners on your costumes. The key difference here, is pining your safety pin from the INSIDE of the skirt so that only a portion of the pin appears for you to hook on. And you don’t get that ugly “I can see a safety pin” effect/reaction from people.

Pin and hook! Simple xD!
