About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Skirt: circle skirt, hand sewn brown ribbon and added some netting for slight poof.
Shirt: Used a pattern and replaced button holes with snaps and made the poofy sleeves + armwarmers. The collar is too short and hits wrong which I didn't realize until I put it all together the day before the convention, oh well!
Corset: AHAHAHAHAHAHA. What you see is Attempt #3. Used a pattern but adding boning for support which I am very glad I did. Way too much handsewing on the trim, and it closes with hook and eye tape in the front and a few emergency stitches since it was a bit bulky to fall flat without gapping, though the watchbands glued on helped alot.
Boots: Bought from thrift shop, glued on white trim and painted the yellow.
Gun: Bought from eBay and lots of paint!
Hair things: The hat I just freeformed since I've done a stupid amount of hats in my cosplay career. The hairpins are foamies, floral wire, rhinestones and even more hot glue! I will probably redo them as Sculpy since I was concerned about the structural integrity a bit. But I really like the rhinestones as the Soul Gem since it's so sparkly! (and resin casting scares me)
- Styling Notes
- Bought already made from Fantasy Sheep because I am much better at sewing than wig styling!
