The bag



Costume Information

Cost : about a fiver for the bag base from hobby craft, everything else i had already
Time Taken : 2 -3 Days

i really wanted to do a maid for the cafe at Minamicon and wanted to stray a little from your standard EGL style a little, i chose pink because its my Favorite color and i reminds me of iced rings, fondant fancies and ice cream (and most importantly Hello Kitty :D)

i drew the design about a week before i started to sew and was given a pink bridesmaid dress to cut up for the base, i dismantled most of it (hacked with scissors) for the underskirt and carefully un-picked the lace trim from around the bottom of the b/maid dress and the big floppy collar to go along the edge of the bag and around the apron

the shirt also has its sleeves and buttons to match that on the bag

same as the hat/headpiece is done in the same fabric as the skirt and trimmed in the same lace, (i did notice the bag is the perfect shape to carry the head

i was also thinking of makng different badges to go on the chest of the apron, the hat and bag... maybe a kitty face, ice-cream and cookies or sweets

BIG THANKS TO: Joe and Alisa for the Fab Fanservice pic as well as Mike ben for their pics and all my fellow maids for making it so fun
