Ok. Now, the next thing i need to know is where this glued strip goes.  To then put the velcro.  Regarding the velcros I have another doubt.  Do I have to put them with the armor on? Because if so, someone else would have to help me

Alright, so here is my setup from the video. My pieces are very similar to yours. I have my cowl and cape attached to the inside of my breastplate. Again, this is just so I can get into it quicker without having to style soft parts as much. The plates should line up like this more or less and the strap from the ring comes up onto the top back plate. The last image shows more or less where I have my Velcro. To store it, I just flip the back plate 180 degrees so it sits inside the breastplate and wrap the soft parts around it. Hope that helps.

Ok. I still don't know very well where the velcro of the strip goes that it said in the last photo I uploaded, but anyway I take the opportunity to ask you.  Those parts you say you leave attached to the armor, what are they?

So if you look at the second to last picture, that diagonal stripe of velcro on the back plate matches a piece on the reverse of that strap. In the shot where it is all attached, you can see how that strap comes up diagonally. As to the parts I leave attached. I leave the cowl and cape attached to the breastplate and the sashes attached to the ring.

Ok. I can see the velcro thing quite clearly in the photos you've sent me, but since it's the first time I'm going to put them on, I'm afraid they won't fit the height that the GML wants.  Would you give me some advice on what to do?

As long as you get the front and back plates lined up right, you can adjust the height after by adjusting the shoulder straps. Worst case scenario, you can redo where you have the velcro with a bit of cleanup. It is a bit of trial and error, but you are going to have to try to put it on and then adjust as needed.

Right. So what do I start with by aligning the two pieces, putting on the velcro as you told me, adjusting the straps to my measurements and trying to see how it fits me?

Pretty much, yes. The velcro is not permanent, so don't be too worried about messing it up. 

If you need, you can have someone help you align it and use tape to outline where it needs to go so you have a template to use for placing the other side of the velcro.

When you say to ask for help to put on the suit, do you mean someone who knows the suit or who helps me, for example, my parents?

Ok. Can you tell me in what order could I put on the suit?

Generally a pretty good order is,

1. skirt and shirt

2. head covering you wear under the mask (tuck into collar)

3. Armor plates

4. Sashes

5. cape

6. Cowl

7. Gauntlets (vanbraces and hand armor) and gloves (tuck gloves into vanbraces)

8. mask

 

As you get into it a few times though, you'll figure out what works best for you.

Ok.

 

I'm going to practice a little tomorrow because I got back from vacation today.  I'm a little scared when putting on the velcros because it's my first time and I don't have anyone around to help me.  If I made a mistake, what velcro would I have to buy? How could I learn to adjust the hood?

Could you please tell me how to put on the hood?  If you want I can put photos so you know how it is

Hi:

 

today, they have been helping me with the armor and the ribbon that I round in white I don´t know if it can go to that height because if I put it higher it touches the piece behind.
