Hi! I’m planning a Link cosplay from BoTW, Royal Guard outfit. I have no idea what to use for the gold fabric or at least, I can’t seem to find any that would be suitable and I was thinking of using gold iron vinyl for the triforce designs on his hat and blue uniform parts. On the gold fabric parts, I want to make the design one piece if possible instead of using gold fabric for the trim and painting the rest (aside from the smaller “decal” like designs just above)/ w/o topstitching.
Gold iron-on vinyl is probably going to be your best bet, since you’ll be able to cut it to shape and attach it without visible stitching. It also won’t fray at the edges, so stitching won’t be needed. The problem would be the size of the vinyl, since even the rolls sold for hobby use aren’t very large. In order to get around this (and have a more efficient use of material), you may need to hide small seams in the trim so that the designs are made of different pieces. I would recommend hiding any seams
