I've been costuming since 2001 and have made over twenty costumes, and still counting. I have loved to sew and create since I was a young girl when I tried to start my own doll clothing company. I love doing walk-ons on stage but a little more shy about skits. Trying to improve that though!
"Powerpuffninja, I got in touch with Sophie, here's what she said:
Sophie: "I took apart a shelf led light thing and replaced the top part with a plastic christmas light ball from Hobby Lobby. I cut it to size,then sprayed the back with translucent airbrush paint. I used a stencil to block out the letter part. It does open.THe belt is made of pleather. It was cut to size, and you can make it adjustable. After all that, I put the light back together with the new parts and made sure it would still turn on when you pushed down the dome. Then i made a holder out of fun foam for the light to go in. Then stuck that to pleather belt. I think the attachment is just velcro. So you can pull the light out just like in the show."
and put it back in"
"I didn't make the belts myself, Buttercup (Sophie) did, I'll get her to comment on here and help you out. AFAIK they are adjustable, and were rewired push lights, but I know she would be able to answer better than I would.. ^^"
"Does the transformation belt communicator open up just like how it does on the show? (please respond as soon as possible) I just wanted to know because I need one for my costume. Also is the belt adjustable?"
"Wow these belts are so amazing!!! I just love them!! Can you tell me how you made them because I'm trying to be bubbles from powerpuff girls z and my friend is helping me out with my costume so I was trying to find the perfect belt for my costume and your is amazing! Also is there anyway I can by the blue belt if not then I'll just keep looking. Sorry if my comment bothers and or irritates you. (please respond as soon as possible)"
