Costume Information

For the 'You are a Toy' cosplay group :D

When this group was first suggested, I jumped at being Slinky because he's my favourite in Toy Story. I kind of said it as a joke... somehow it turned in to a real costume XD

Obviously, the first idea was to make it as a two-person thing like those horse costumes. But I didn't think anyone would want to be my back half, and I lack the construction skills, and can you IMAGINE navigating expo in something like that? So I decided some kind of humanized version was needed. I eventually settled on a kigurumi-style costume, with the middle cut out and wire wrapped around like a spring.

It was so much fun to make- It was actually my first time doing sleeves and trousers so both of those were an adventure, but luckily due to the baggy style I didn't have to be too exact. Also I've done a lot of stuff with fleece, so I'm used to that :D It is also the single most comfy thing EVER. Fleece trousers need to come in to fashion.

Edit: Popping this in to complete because I'm unlikely to make the paws any time soon and I'm just wearing it without XD

Awesome! You should get a friend to do this with you and have a half each so you can spread out!

Haha I wish I could make it as two people but I totally don't have the skillz XD I was thinking of making it kigurumi style, with a big spring around the middle haha.
