Jack and Sally


Costume Information

Cost : £15
Time Taken : 15h

This was to be my first ever cosplay hence I wanted a costume that would be a nice easy way to start (also it was handy because as a rag doll it would be a great way to get away with any mistakes!).

I enjoyed making it - even though it was in some places rather difficult to sew wool through four layers of fabric >_< and drawing seams on my face/body took some doing!! My only regret was not painting myself bluey white to really finish off the character.

I didn't enter into the masquerade - I was seated with the judges on both days.

that's really good! first ever cosplay? amazing! i love the stitches on your arms and stuff. i think that painting yourself that colour would have been effective but pretty uncomfortable! ^^
