Just a little something for
who asked how I got the digigrade look on my Xerneas cosplay. Basically, I printed out a life-sized picture of me with the desired outline of the legs over mine. I cut out those pieces (pointed out with yellow lines), transferred them onto foam, glued them to the cosplay pants (what I slip into when I put on Xdeer) I then carved them to round them and lose the "boxy" shape, and for smoothness, I covered them in 1/2 inch foam. Ta da!
This is just the way I do my costumes--but there are many different ways, too!
