Madoka Petticoat Tutorial by RuffleButtCosplay Madoka Petticoat Tutorial by RuffleButtCosplay
I have been wanting to make this for a while since I get a lot of questions about my petticoat and Madoka cosplayers in general seem rather lost when it comes to her ridiculous skirt. Enjoy my tutorial! Feel free to ask questions!

This tutorial will also help out in making fluffy skirts for EGL type outfits. Reason why I say that is because I kinda... Converted 2 friends of mine into liking EGL but one needs the right skirt for her outfit and they didn't listen to me when I said to make the skirt fluffy like this type (happened before I knew about your tutorial). I'll show it to them later and they can remake some of their stuff using this method. ^_^

I personally don't have to but I will keep this tutorial so that I can use it in the future! :D
Is there any way you could explain the petal skirt in more detail? I've tried two different patterns now, and both and op looking very rectangular and droopy ...
gosh im sorry if this question is a bother, but can i ask what you meant when you said "after that was finished, each layer was cut down" after you  fray checked the skirt?
i feel like the answer is an easy one but im still a little confused

what equation did you use to figure out the petal skirt? you mentioned pi but i'm pretty shit at math something else to go on would be really helpful....?

(speaking up helpful, thank you so much for putting this up, its one of the first things to come up when one is looking for madoka cosplay help)

this is awesome cant wait to try it out i just have one thing that i cant figure out the mesh you put in between each layer how long for each layer and it looks like you ruffled it as well?

... If you ever need to make a skirt like this again, could you provide a guide to show how many layers of skirt makes a certain amount of poof?
This tutorial is super helpful! What kind of fabric did you use for the top skirt?

I think cotton fabric, it looks like.
