Costume Information

General
Cost : £40
Time Taken : Two weeks

Description
Woo, a black kitty cat! =^_^=

This is part of a Trigun group which SephNoir has organised.
She also helped me to create the kigurumi; I made the basic jumpsuit (with long squidgy tail!), and Liz has made the super-cute hood and the booties. What a star! =^_^=

A nice comfortable costume to wear - received lots of cuddles; although someone accidentally trod on my tail and ripped it but thanks to madmazda86 for sewing it up and tacking it to my back so it didn't trail any more :-)

@miiol - I hope so. I haven't quite decided if I'll make a big head or not.

Thanks Sonia - they did make me feel more kitty-like. I didn't wear them all the time though because they stopped me doing stuff so I just put them on for photos, etc. (like the one on stage) and for additional cuteness when required =^_^=

Kuroneko almost has a kigurumi! =^_^=

Last night, I stuffed the tail (which took ages because it had a mind of its own!) using chopped up pieces of an old quilt, so now I have a lovely squidgy tail =^_^=
I also pinned and sewed the inside legs of the jumpsuit and attached the sleeves. For some reason, the sleeves are in two halves - which seems a little odd but it was far easier to sew than normal sleeves so I wasn't complaining!

I also wanted to sew down both outer sides last night too so that the main body was virtually finished (except for a zip and elasticated cuffs and ankles), but when the clock showed that it was 12:45am (oops!) Kitten figured she'd better stop and go to her basket...

Okay, so far I have front and back panels sewn from 'the crotch to the notch' (I am only doing what the pattern says XD!) and sleeves half sewn onto it.
I have also cut up the tail, all 3ft of it - what?!?? I followed the pattern, but methinks I shall be making that a tad smaller...

Black fleece ordered from local fabric shop.
