About this Costume
Construction Details:
Making Klan’s jumper was a challenge for me because I had never made anything remotely similar. I ended up making several mock-ups before I got it right. The body of the jumper had to be skin tight, but the bottom around the legs needed to have a poof to it, so I had to bell out the pattern starting at the hip and then gather the extra material at the bands around the leg. The jacket was a much easier task and is made out of black and maroon suiting. I did have a difficult time finding gold piping though and was very close to just making my own before I found some that would work on the Internet.

To make the leggings I started with lavender thigh highs from We Love Colors and some white wedge shoes. Cutting the thigh highs at the toe, I stretched them and glued them down around the edges of the shoes so that just the white wedges were showing. I then measured my thighs carefully and cut the white zig-zag part out, reinforcing it with thick interfacing so it wouldn’t flop and would be tight around my thigh. I pinned the top of the thigh highs along the inside base of the white part (stretching it where necessary) and then sewed it in place.

There are a lot of other minor components to this costume: ribbons, gold snaps, pink bows, SMS logos, and of course the pointy ears (a highlight of the costume for me).
