I recently went to a convention where I cosplayed for the first time using thrift store finds. WEll. I've got the cosplaying bug, and want to actually make my own costume for next year. I can't do it by hand as I have found (curse you Solace costume!) so I am going to need a sewing machine.
I was gonna save up for one but then I heard about sergers. And if i am going to buy something I might as well go all in and make some of my own clothing, right? (I am very very petite... even the petite pants don't fit).
So uh... ehellions? Which is better? Sewing machine or serger? What's the difference? If i use a sewing machine will my costume/clothing fall apart?
Guide me! you are my only hope!
