Cosplayer Iron Stitch > Costume of Sophie from Howls Moving Castle
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The fabric for the dress was originally just plain white fabric, but I dyed it and added the stitching for the pinstripe effect. Hat was originally bought at Target with a red-orange band instead of the pink one. The pink one is slip stitched on and the flowers are wound together, secured with hot glue, and then sewn onto the hat. I also made appropriate length bloomers. The shoes are from Bodyline.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I am extremely happy with how this cosplay turned out! :D
- Styling Notes
- Wig is french braided and bangs were cut. French braiding was surprisingly easy because the wefts did not show. Make sure to pin the wig on a wig head as stretched as it can be so that it will still fit your head.
- Wig Review
- Wig is very thick, which made the braid very heavy. I also had to rebraid the bottom part of it a couple times because of frizz.
