Description
This took FOREVER to make. Well, I suppose it just seemed a lot longer than it was because I did a lot of the work the night before (I worked from 4, til around 11pm). The most time was undoubtedly taken by the hat. I do all my sewing by hand, so it took sooo long to get the red material right. It wasn't a ribbon, so I had to fold it over itself so it would have a straight edge, then had to sew it onto the hat. Not too difficult sounding, eh? But trust me, it was.

The material of the hat was super super thick, and the pin's didn't want to keep it in place. As well as that, there's an elasticated section at the back I had to sew over, so when I got to that bit, I had to stretch the fabric out, which I really needed at least 3 hands to do :/

The red top was actually done weeks in advance. All I did there was cut a section out of the front, cut a collar from an old shirt and sew that on. I probably could have done a much better job if I hadn't rushed that part, but I don't think it looks too awful...

I will be updating and adding little things to this costume for when I cosplay it later this year, so I may add it again for that.

THANKS TO: Mum, again, cause she helped so much that day~
