About this Costume
Construction Details:
Thankfully I only had to use one pattern for the whole thing: Butterick B6837. It has patterns for both the pyjamas and the dressing gown. I couldn't find any accurate fabric for the pyjamas, so I bought something that was striped in the nursery section and had it facing wrong side out for that faded look. If accurate fabric is ever found, I am so going to get some.rnThe dressing gown is made from anti-pill fleece from Jo-Ann's. It has the right texture and color and is definitely warm. Piece of advice, don't go marching around downtown Atlanta in a dark blue, fleece dressing gown Labor Day weekend! I used some embroidery floss to add the blanket stitching to the edges when it was almost done for the finishing touch.rnrnThe slippers I ended up getting from Amazon. The one problem with doing this in August, there are very few slippers in the stores. They're Isotoner Micro Terry Slip On Men's Slippers in navy. They have soles that are meant to be worn indoors or out. The only problem is the padding isn't meant to be used quite that much at once. I'm going to have to repad them before I wear them again.rnrnI originally borrowed a towel from my hubby. But since then I've bought one of my own. I'm thinking of eventually recreating a towel of Arthur's from the series. Probably a blue one with yellow stars on it.rnrnI also have my own Hitchhiker's Guide. It's a Kindle Keyboard in a really simple black case. "Don't Panic" is painted on in large friendly letters. On the Kindle, aside from some books, are a ton of articles from Wikipedia. It's a great little Guide.rn
Personal Thoughts:
Who doesn't love The Hitchhiker's Guide? (Aside from that movie that I like to pretend doesn't exist.) I figured since I already had everything, why not buy a "Guide" and be Arthur Dent! So much fun!

Wig Review
I got it on eBay years ago. It's too small and there could be more wefts. I really need to replace it.
