About this Costume
Construction Details:
I used three yards of blue cotton fabric for the dress, which was made using the Simplicity 4015 pattern. I lengthened the skirt and raised the collar to be more appropriate to Lucy, and patterned her scalloped collar by hand, which is backed with interfacing. The sash I made using Casa satin for contrast, and I made the bow in the back using the Sailor Moon method - I'm getting so used to making senshi bows that I made the bow by eyeballing it rather than measuring, and when I was done, it was the perfect size for a senshi chest bow. LOL. The wig is a 1950s style wig which works perfectly for Lucy.
Personal Thoughts:
I loved Peanuts growing up and Lucy was always my absolute favorite character. Sure, she's kind of a bitch, but she knows what she wants, tells it like it is, and she doesn't put up with any fools. I thought it would be a blast to cosplay her, but only if I made her "Psychiatric Help 5ยข" sign to go with it. My friends thought this was a great idea, and decided to join me! We had so much fun wearing these costumes, and I made over $2 dispensing advice!
