About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I had a ton of fun with this one, but I did make a few changes to the costume!
The top is a white cow print fabric that I dyed with RIT dye to get just what I wanted! Clover has smaller cow print, but this was closer than using leopard print or something else I didn't want. My other option was hand painting and I wasn't really for that.
The fur on both the top and socks were not the color I wanted, but I settled. I completed this costume Wednesday night before leaving for Otakon. I bought two packs of this fur from Joanns in the crafting section. I sewed it directly to the top. The sock parts have an elastic in them.
The shoes are from Deb! They were super cute and cheap, even though they aren't completely accurate. I went for one bow instead of three, because I think it looks better with the shoes I have. I used acrylic paint to add the spots and make the heel black.
The hair baubles are hot pink and light pink fabric glued to foam balls, painted with spots, and stuck onto bobby pins. I bought the belt with holes, strung some sort of rawhide rope through it, and glued bottle caps to the front. I would like to remake it! I glued the bottle caps while it was on me, so I had to rip them off before removing the costume. The bracelet is my sad attempt at a scrunchie. I got the watch when Aksys was selling them and donating money to Hurricane Sandy relief!
I bought the shorts and socks.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Clover kinda sucks, but I wanted a fun costume!
