Cosplayer LateralMoon > Costume of Kim Pine from Scott Pilgrim
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I feared that jacket long before making it, but it actually wasn't very hard. Just a matter of altering a normal pattern for a jacket to make it two different colors.
The pleaded skirt was much more of a pain - first attempt at making one and did it completely from scratch, no pattern whatsoever. Figuring out everything was easy, but getting the pleats even proved time-consuming. Unfortunately, I believe because of the lightweight fabric I used (I used a fabric I had laying around to save money), the pleats don't stay in place as nicely as they could.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is one of my favorite costumes - as someone who was a drummer for seven years I couldn't resist cosplaying as Kim. It was a relatively easy costume, very comfortable and fun to wear.
- Styling Notes
- All that needed to be done was trim the bangs a bit - pretty minimal styling job.
- Wig Review
- The wig itself is of a nice quality, lovely color and is very soft.
