About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Shirt: Thrift store find. Buttons were replaced to match my socks
Bow Tie: fabric left over from Sasami's pants. its a long rectangle for the neck band, a stout rectangle for the bow, and a strip to enclose the bow. there are two very small snaps to keep it on
suspenders: thrift store find
Gloves: white gloves were bought at the fashion district, black bands are made from an old headband.
shorts: I forget where they came from originally, but I sewed the white band on to the bottoms.
socks: Black and white socks from foot traffic. Then they were dyed with Dyson tropical blue dye using the hot water method.
- Personal Thoughts:
- So much fun running around in this thing!
I kept my ponytails laid on top of the grand piano in my house because I had some half theory that the ponytails wouldn't tangle. and maybe I was right since i'm not having tangle issues with the ponytails even though they are very long...
- Styling Notes
- the wig is my favorite part of this. I used it as a test of my skills so I went kind of all out on it.... base wigs: 1 Jaguar in Light Copper Red and another in Teal. I also got long clips in the same colors. Base: The back wefts of both wigs were removed and the blue was sewn onto the cap of the orange wig. Then the front third of the blue wig was removed and sewn underneath the front of the orange. the long bits are wefts removed from the ponytail clips. I then styled and cut they layers so each color blended the way I wanted it to. ponytails: half of each ponytail was removed and then the individual wefts were sewn back in and re attached to the claw clips. then each weft was layered to give the best peeks at the blue undersides.
