Tips for correct ironing of anime and cosmetic costumes
COSPLAY costumes are both a winning strategy for cosplayers and a favourite treasure for cosplayers. A good COSPLAY costume with subtle cosmetic makeup plays a vital role for cos, and a well-made COSPLAY costume is also worth a lot of money.
The iron will be used to iron the clothes and the correct ironing method. I hope you’ll enjoy it~~
When the iron is at 60 – 100 degrees, the water droplets do not disperse under the iron and there is no sound
At 100 – 140 degrees, the water droplets spread out and make a snorting sound
At 140 – 160 degrees, the water droplets immediately disperse into small droplets and make a few sounds
At 160 – 180 degrees, the droplets are lost after rolling, making a fluttering sound
At 180 – 220 degrees, the water immediately evaporates and makes a snorting sound. Note that this gentleman was once left with a nail-sized crescent scar on his arm by a classmate’s steam iron next to his seat. So use the above method to test the temperature of the iron, if it is a steam iron it does not matter, all have temperature markings that can be adjusted, except for one inconvenience is to add water. Here is the temperature and method of ironing after the cosmetic costume has been made.
The fabric bought back first low temperature ironing, let the fabric shrink a little.
Cotton with 180 – 220 temperature ironing If it is a dark colour fabric clothes should be ironed on the reverse side
Hemp 140 – 160 ironing Front side ironing in the right direction, the creases must not be ironed.
Silk 100 – 140 ironing No steam ironing, iron on the reverse side of the fabric when it is half dry, no ironing after production
Wool 120 – 160 Iron on the reverse side with a damp cloth, otherwise the colour will lighten, I have had this problem with a nana tunic, luckily it was only the sleeves and the sleeve cuttings were replaced.
Polyester 140 – 160 Same as cotton
Wash it first, wait until it is dry and put a dry cloth on it, the temperature should not be high and when you iron the lining to make the clothes strong (especially men’s shirt collars, such as Kidd’s blue shirts), you can add a piece of kraft paper for clothing layout in the middle of the fabric, lining and iron so that you can get an unexpected effect. The problem of scorching is a fabric flaw for us. If the area is large or particularly noticeable, you will have to replace the cut-out. If the area is small, you can use the fabric to flaw the water, only for a small area, and you can use the same fabric to testify the pattern sewn on it. If the fabric is elastic, roll it directly and pull the fabric by hand to enlarge the effect when ironing the garment. The method of ironing about the lining, because the spinning lining is cheap, and the glue is easy to melt, the temperature should not be very high, when the ironing using pressure ironing, is in a place to press a little on the ha. It’s best to use kraft paper again to get a good effect, don’t move after ironing, let it cool.
