About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Wig: Brought on ebay a while back.
Glasses: Harry Potter glasses. XDD
Shirt: Reuse work shirt that I took the original collar off and put a homemade collar on it. The swirly lines on the collar was hand embroider by me and there is interface in the collar.
Coat: Made by me, using a coat pattern (forgot which one), and fully lined. I use heat bond on the gold "poop" and zigzag the seams. Their are 8, one inch gold buttons and two black buttons on the front of the coat and 2 gold buttons on each sleeves.
Gloves: Made from Faux fur and the claws are made from 2 layers of foam board, cut and sanded. The claws are attach to each finger by wonderflex molded to my fingers (like a thimble).
Pants: A modify pants pattern (forgot which one) that I shorten and made a little tighter. The material I use for the pants was stretchy so I didn't cut any circulation from my legs.
Shoes: brought a pair of 20 dollar shoes at walmart. I use leftover material to make a mock pattern.
Then I measure and cut out each strip and label them 1-11 and black or gray on each strip.
I transfer each strip to there respectic fabric (black and gray shiny costume vinyl). Then I
sew on each strip to the matching numbers. I then hem up the bottoms of the shoes and added
a back zipper. Then I made a anklet band around the shoes using the same method that I did with
the shoes, but I added foam rubber to the inside of the anklet. I hand sew the anklets to the
tops of the shoes. There was a lot of pinning and testing the shoe..and you can tell from this
picture I'm not finish. XD Oh and I'm going to use rubber glue (E6000) to glue the shoe covers
to the shoe.
Belt: Left over silver vinyl that I has two layers sewing together.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I had fun with this costume. I especially love how the shoes came out and the fun stories I had when trying to pick up things with my long claws. XDD
