Getting started with your costuming toolbox

It can be difficult to know what tools are useful for building a costuming project, particularly if it's your first project.

Learning what tools are the best for the job will also change depending on the type of costume you're building. The gear needed to build a hard-armoured costume such as a Stormtrooper is considerably different to soft-costumes like Sith Robes.

We consulted the Southern Cross Garrison membership to come up with the essential gear for your costuming toolbox guide.

The guide provides the sort of tools needed for cutting and trimming, joining and assembly, strapping and safety.
