Cosplayer Meru > Costume of Fionna from Adventure Time with Finn and Jake
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Skirt material is ponte. White dress is made from casa satin. Even though it was meant to be distressed, I still lined the bodice and made the skirt with French seams. The torn edges were done with a soldering iron, which was pretty fun to do. The circles are heat & bonded to canvas for support. I decided to try my hand at sewing embellishments to give the costume something a little extra, since everything else was pretty easy to make. My socks are from American Apparel -- I know the color isn't 100% accurate, but I love how they look and feel on me (usually thigh socks end up being too short on my legs). Hat is made of fleece, fully lined, with wire support for the ears. Husband made the sword.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love Fionna because she's just a dorky tomboy. I chose to cosplay this version because I adore princess dresses AND her original look, so it made sense to do the mashup design.
