|Time Taken :||5 - 6 hours|
|I made this back in May 2008 but never wore it until October Expo 2009.|
USED: London MCM Expo - October 2009
PLANNED: Photos with a Team Rocket and/or Pikachu
23 October 2009 (Posted 3rd November 2009)
the day before expo, I had a sudden thought of not being able to carry my Pokeballs, so i grabbed some red netting and red tie from my material box. I did some very quick stitching and a slip note in the tie to go around my belt.
Almost Finished (Posted 1st November 2009)
T-shirt was one I'd made for general use.
Trousers were an old pair with the bottoms cut off.
Making the Hood (Posted 1st November 2009)
I draw myself a template for the body, hood and M.
Cut out and glued on the oval shape on hood.
Completed Warmers (Posted 1st November 2009)
In the end i didn't use the elastic they were tight enough to stay up by themselves.
Leg warmers have two black stripes, Arm warmers have one.
Making the Warmers (Posted 1st November 2009)
I measured forearms and bottom legs deciding how big I wanted the warmers.
Then messaured and cut four rectangles of red fleece. Cut and stitched black stripes to the four rectangles. Folded the fleece and stitched into a tube, then pulled them the right way. I also stitched the edges over to tidy them up.
October 2009. (Posted 6th October 2009)
So, a while since I made this, and now it's almost time to wear.
I need to:
- make trosaurs (the ones i have are now grey and not black)
I was hoping this would be comfy and not so annoying to wear. I also hope the wrist and leg warmers will stay up.. When I first made them they fitted fine, but now I think they may need elastic - agh work! I'll have to wear them for a day and see.
