Cosplayer Lauren Hibs > Costume of Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time with Finn & Jake
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The waist-cincher is a dyed, store-bought cincher, with the gold details painted on with gold paint. The top and arm sleeves/cuffs were dyed and altered appropriately. I covered a wide piece of elastic in the brown for her belt, and made the center gem out of Model Magic, and painted it with acrylic paint.
The pale underskirt was bought from H&M, with a single petticoat under it to give volume. The large over-skirt was hand/free-patterned and made from 6 yards of pink fabric, soaked in a light brown dye to give it the "rustic" colour. It's gathered between the two front loops, made from brown bias tape. The back of the skirt has 3 yards of tule gathered to increase the back volume slightly.
The leg warmers/spats were hand/free-patterned using a brown cotton. I made the careless mistake (while multitasking) of adding the gold dots on the wrong side of one, so the seam side was visible on one of them.
The shoes were bought from Target, and painted gold.
- Personal Thoughts:
- As an avid lover of Adventure Time, when I saw micaella's steampunk designs, I had to put them on my bucket list, right next to everything else I wanted to do but probably never will. So when my friends put forth the idea of doing her steampunk designs as Katsucon, I was really nervous for the amount of details and work from scratch that would have to be done, but I was so excited, it didn't even matter.
- Styling Notes
- I used a similar technique as I used for Judar, when making the round puffs in the ponytail of the wig.
