Cyberlox tutorial by MissLaneyLuck Cyberlox tutorial by MissLaneyLuck
Huge file!

Please link this wherever you can, and spread the word on this tutorial!

Okay, I am obsessed with Cyber-goth fashion, and I know that if a Cyberlox tutorial exists, I have never seen one, so I decided to make one. It's a fairly simple process... Expensive and a little time consuming, but cheaper than buying them.

I got my Tubular Crin at I Kick Shins ([link]) and it came INCREDIBLY fast. I mean like, 3 days after I ordered it. The 35 yards I bought cost me under $60, where as people sell these Cyberlox for like, $85...

I got my Rexlace at Michale's for $2.49 for a 100-yard roll. Also got the craft foam there at 3/ $1.

I decided to use normal elastic because it's something I had lying around. Same with the decorations... I was going to buy new cool eyelets and stuff, but I decided to go with what I had around the house.

EDIT: 5k view, z'omg thank you all :heart:

UPDATE: More pics added! <3

Thank you so much! I've been looking online for these and they're really pricey, especially for the good ones. This is the easiest tutorial I've found.

Don't worry, I'm obsessed too, this look is just amazing,
Thanks for this tutorial, even I can't buy tubular crin at that store because I live far far away from there and It'll be so much expensive, I'm going to make them with materials i can find here :)
Thanks again ;)

Haha good luck, I'm sure if you look hard enough you can find something awesome! If you can use EBay there is lots on there! ^^

eBay is ok the problem is shipping. To ship any little thing from another country is a little expensive... I hope using materials that I can find here could look great :)

I followed you from Cosplay in America's FB page. XD

Thank you so much for uploading this, I'm planing on doing Cyberpunk for the Otakon rave in 2011 and I want to try making my own Cyberlox before hand.

tried that too - they just don't get it. like it doesn't exist in serbia. we have this traditionalism and this "no we don't want your kinky satanist trends" attitude problem here. i think the closest place i could find tubular crin is croatia. now if i could only find enough money for the trip there and back. probably would cost me less to order it off any us web shop that sells it, despite the postal fees. :(

well it's kinda too expensive for me. and besides paypal doesn't work well here. i think there are still some conflicts with our country, dunno how i'd pay for it.. maybe with a visa card or something, which i do have it's just that i'm always afraid to use it online.. :(
but thanks anyway :)

how many yards of crin would you estimate this was?

(I don't want to buy too little)

MissLaneyLuck Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I used 35 yards but I know that I didn't use it all. Depends on how full you want them I suppose, mine are kind of a medium size :)

Thank-you very much!! This helped me find the answers to my confusion after trying to figure out how to put them all together correctly! Now if I wasn't so fail at hair in general I could tie my hair into a bun ^^;

i'm a huge nub when it comes to cyber goth... i'm more victorian style goth.

how do these freaking attach?
i'm making a character for a live action role-play and i thought cyberlox or falls would suit her perfectly...
only my hair is blonde...
would there be a way to wear these with a wig?

:iconmisslaneyluck:
MissLaneyLuck Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Of course! All I do is put my hair into a dancer style bun (very round and flat to the head) and tie them around. You could easily just bobby pin (or even sew/ glue) them into a wig. :D

Thank you, thank you! They look cool btw^^

We just found out that shipping from the USA to Holland is actually cheaper than ordering them from here... Also, we split costs so it's not that expensive anymore.

Awesomeness! ^^ I made dread and foam falls a few months ago, but only because I couldn't afford the tubular crinoline. I wish it was cheaper because it looks great. *sigh*

Yeah, I noticed. And I don't even have a clue as to where I can buy it in rl to compare prices. I don't really like buying things online.
