About this Costume
Construction Details:
Let's go head to toe!

Skull pins - sculpted from polymer clay and molded using molding putty and then resin cast using white acrylic paint as the tint. The eyes/nose were painted with black acrylic and then filled in with more resin.

Wig - see below

Sailor collar - I custom dyed the collar and skirt with Rit dyes. The collar is made from a lightweight cotton, trimmed in bias tape made from the same material. I drafted the pattern to be able to incorporate the standing collar.

Shirt - made from a shirting fabric, custom pattern. The cuffs are attached to the shirt, and are stuffed with quilt batting. The stitches are made from unravelled nylon cord.

Trench coat - Another custom pattern, made from twill and fully lined. Closes via buttons and a snap on the top corner of the double breast.

Spartoi patch - hand embroidered on canvas, backed with heat-bond interfacing, and satin stitched to finish the edges. Hand sewn to the jacket.

Skirt - custom dyed, side-zip, hook-and-eye closure. Needs to be re-pleated before I wear it next. =_=

Leggings - boughtrnrnBoot covers - completely removable covers, worn over a pair of Converse, so they're really comfortable
Personal Thoughts:
I've loved this variant since the first time I saw it, so I'm really happy to have been able to make it :)

Styling Notes
The base wig was rather fake-shiny, but I removed most of this by conditioning it. I was a little bit disappointed by the internal wefts (short fibers that were going weird directions, and also two colors of fiber??) but the part line for the pigtails is full and provides good coverage.

I had a little bit of trouble covering gaps around the temples when I redid the pigtails.
