Does anyone know of any websites, youtube vids, or forums that have tutorials for creating / altering soft goods for Mezco figures?

It's probably just the same techniques as regular hand-sewing, but on a smaller scale. There are a variety of sewing tutorials on youtube. Start at the beginning with threading the needle and how to start and end a stitch, believe it or not there's a specific way to do it. :o For the most part seams and stitches are not meant to be seen, so clothes are sewn inside out and then inverted. Another technique to look up is the invisible seam (ladder stitch) technique when it's not possible to flip it inside out.

There are some things to think about that wouldn't normally be considered because of scale. Paper sewing patterns would normally be pinned to the cloth but little pinholes in the cloth are definitely more apparent at smaller scales. An alternative is to tape down the pattern instead.

Searching on YouTube for custom clothing for Mezco One:12 figures returned these results.

What’s the best way to remove the belts (specifically the supreme knight Batman) thinking of doing a swap but I don’t know if I want it to be permanent yet
