About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- [old/retired costume brought over from cosplaylab/cosplay.com with copypaste info. May update later]
Inspiration: Made for a Jem group. Was originally going to be Riot, but the lack of any Stingers made me change it. Maybe Riot will happen at a later con....maybe. If I can justify Jem + Anime Con. Maybe at D*C or something, then. Based the chara design around the doll's, since, well the characters seem to wear lots of different outfits in each episode and thus might not be recognizable.
Least Favorite Aspect: I love the 80s, but man....I looked like I was dressed by my mom (who is also a clown) in the dark.
Easiest Task: The whole thing was rather easy, it was mostly modified, thrifted stuff.
Hardest Task: Hmm...woulda been the striped version of the jacket but I scrapped that after a few failed attempts and just went with another jacket. I guess then, it would have been painting the design on the shirt, but that wasn't really that hard.
