How Do I Distress Clothing?

Distressing is when you make something look worn or used. It is useful in costuming because when you make a costume it looks brand new, and that might not work for certain characters. These are a couple ways to make your costume look more broken in:
  • Use sand paper to wear down areas that would have a lot of wear, such as on the knees or elbows.
  • Washing the piece several times to fade the color and soften the fabric.
