Cosplayer NyuNyu > Costume of Kaylee Frye from Firefly
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I was driving myself nuts trying to find a fabric or shirt just like Kaylee's. So I found a shirt I thought she would wear, with kanji on it, dyed it pink, and cropped the sleeves. The overalls were made from scratch, by combining a collared shirt pattern and a pants pattern. I used a heavy twill fabric and added the applique and kanji details before distressing the costume with paint and sandpaper. It took a bit of hunting and some advice from other Kaylee costumers to find the correct appliques and kanji. Yes, some of them are supposed to be upside down, and yes I wrote one of the wrong characters. xD Oops. The necklace is similar to one she wore, and made out of Sculpey and a leather cord. Boots that I already own complete the outfit, and I wore my hair similarly at the time, just dying it a few shades lighter and adding some curl.
