Cosplayer Yuqi > Costume of Baby Doll from Sucker Punch
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Sailor Fuku: The main Fuku is made out of Navy and Grey Silk Noil. All the noil was distressed in the washing machine before I cut and sewed it up. The patterning was all drafted for this cosplay.
Accessories: The hand wrap is tea dyed linen that I had lying around, and the neckerchief is a light grey sand washed silk charmeuse that I idyed a dark grey very messily to make it look worn and dirty. The thigh highs I bought at Victoria Secret ;3. Shoes were found on Ebay. The Sageo thread is gold and bought.
Shoulder Harness: The holster is all hand drilled, hand sewn, tanned leather. Boyfriend drafted most of the pattern drafted out, and I used olive oil to tan the leather.
Props: The gun is a 1911a airsoft pistol, Josh took off all the paint and we're in the process of nickel plating the whole gun. The charms were bought from a GREAT Etsy seller The Bird and the Bee. The sword was bought off of ebay and is the 'official replica' of it.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Have always loved Sucker Punch and always meant to make Baby Doll ever since I saw the first movie!
- Styling Notes
- I sewed wefts in all along the back for the pigtails using Katie Blair's tutorial, and along the front to create the side part that Baby Doll has.
- Wig Review
- It was a fun experience but I'm thinking of just replacing the wig with the premade pigtail wig from Arda instead.
