Costume Information

Cost : £150

This was a commission for a Hat with ears, skirt, top, gloves and wrist cuffs.

The hat was constructed with a double layer of millinery buckram and wire, hand sewn into shape. It was covered in black cotton twill and is fully lined. The ears have millinary wire so they can be shaped into whatever position the commissioner wants.

The pink and white striped fabric was made from scratch with ribbon for accuracy.

The entire costume is made from a thick cotton twill.

Why did I make my Top hat using cardboard :/ Doh! I like how you made yours better. So much simpler. ..and lighter to wear.

You must cosplay the Mad Hatter (the Batman one) sometime... :)

Ranma1-2- Yeah, buckram makes things a lot lighter. But I've developed fingers of steel to be able to sew through it. And by fingers of steel I mean I have to use pliers T_T

Adamoluna- I want to make a versatile joke, but I believe you get the drift XD. I can do super cute costumes too, I just prefer creepy ones for myself as I can't play cute for the life of me! My first cosplay was a chi. I think I wore it for the whole of.. 3 hours before deciding I hate long wigs and realising my cute smile just looks deranged.
