|KitaCon was a week before Easter, so why not! Nobody ever cosplays him despite being -adorable-, and it was easy to make up in a few days.|
Since it's just a quick outfit it's a little ghetto, but matches his original "Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg" design more than All-Stars. The only "All-Stars" aspect will be the Giant Egg, which had the All-Stars pattern instead of the spotty Giant Egg pattern :P
Over the course of the day I handed out mini eggs to a bunch of people and had a great time; it's a super comfy costume and despite being a little obscure, it was recognised quite a bit! Happy happy~!
The wig is just a short blonde wig with the fringe sprayed into a quiff. His hair is meant to be a beak of sorts but I thought a quiff was more realistic :P
The hat was made from fleece, cut rougly from an existing fleece hat. The back was stuffed with wadding and surprisingly, only fell off once! It's a little limp to one side, but I'm happy with it :)
The shirt started out as what looked like a giant babygro.. the back of the outfit has a little chickenny butt attached so it was cut with that included. The back had 2 little gold buttons sewn on.
The scarf was basically a long semicircle with 2 round pieces to tie at the front. I lovingly termed them the 'gobbles'. They had to be secured at the shoulders with safety pins else it slipped all over, but once in place, sturdy!
The gloves are meant to be fingerless but a week before the con I had no patience to sew fingerless gloves so instead they were made as mittens. I think they looked really good though, and not out of place at all. Super comfy too!
The trousers were £3 sweatpants from Primark modified to be more fitting like leggings. I cut and pinned and sewed them up and they looked perfect. On their own, they're a fashion disaster, but with the rest of the costume they're perfect!
The legwarmers are a little dark. They were made from some leftover pleather and pieces of gold dance fabric for the little gold pieces. I ran out of the gold fabric before I was done and ideally there should be 4 gold nubbins on each legwarmer (2 on the inside 2 on the outside) but nobody noticed, lol.
The shoes were £12 from Next and are like mock Converse, which aren't in the slightest bit accurate, but they were blue and again, nobody noticed :P
- Giant Egg
The giant egg was made from fleece stuffed with wadding and beanbag beans with a pocket inside for storage of mini eggs, phone, etc :P. The patterns were cut freehand from fleece and then glued on.
