Costume Information

General
Cost : 50+
Time Taken : Roughly about 35 but spread out over a much longer time scale

Description
After seeing some of the awesome fursuits at last years Amecon, i decided to try my hand at making one. This is of course bearing in mind that at the time when i started to make this costume i had no experiance with either making costumes or at using a sewing machine. However Gatomon was always one of my favourite digimon and it's such an undercosplayed show that i had to give it some love lol.

The head was easily the hardest part to make. I had so many mistakes at getting the 'skeleton' underneath it right so i could attach the foam and then the fabric. Lots of internet tutorials were used as reference in helping me lol.

The best part i think are the gloves as i just think they look so cool and are really comfy to have on. They are also the last bits i made but i just really love how they turned out.

I can't wait to wear this at Ame, just hope the sunday isn't too hot. My sister should be doing a Kari to go with me so if you see us say hi ^_^.
