Description
I love this song, it's so... happy!

With BernieBear as Gumi!! I'm so excited :D

I bought a top from Primark and painted the dots on using white acrylic. I painted the top whilst on a dress form so that the top would already be stretched out.

The skirt is a basic circle skirt with a white trim pleated into place (knife pleats) and a waistband added in with a standard zip and hook and eye for fastening.

The bolero was made by drafting a pattern on the dress form and sewing it up. If I had the time I would have lined it in cotton however it looked fine without and I was quite ill so didn't fancy it. We both made it out of short fun fur to match!

Bought the gloves, suspender belt and ear muffs on eBay.
Wig belongs to Special-Pleb.
Socks and shoes I already owned.

Overall a very cute cosplay - I enjoyed wearing it loads and will become my new go-to comfy cosplay whenever I need one.

Costume complete! (Posted 3rd April 2013)

One bowl of cereal later and I am done!

My stomach aches so much... The cereal bowls at home are far bigger than the ones I'm use to at Uni but I carried on eating because cereal is just so good D:
What am I even talking about...?

Sorry for the Instagram filter.

Jacket 100% (Posted 3rd April 2013)

I hate fur...

Again, I threw all professionalism out the window due to my rage against prices at my local fabric store. I'd love to line the thing in polycotton or cotton, but I just cba! :P

I'll bring my lint roller with me to the con...

Skirt 80% (Posted 3rd April 2013)

Hi, I have a skirt, I could have made me more professional by using interfacing in the waistband but when the fabric was £7.99p/m I mentally decided to go on strike and throw all professionalism out the window... Thus the hem isn't very neat either. I kinda regret doing this now but what's done is done, I'm still ill and I cba to unpick it at certain points just to make it that much neater. Especially as the ruffles will hide all imperfections!!

Brb, I need cereal.

Top 100% (Posted 3rd April 2013)

Took me 2hrs but all the polka dots are painted on :D

I got a bit lazy, especially at the back, but it's covered by the jacket any way. I also made a few splatters by mistake when I wasn't paying attention but again, they're at the back.

Now to get started on the actual sewing part of the costume!

Top 40% (Posted 3rd April 2013)

Why did I think hand painting the polka dots was a good idea...?

I'm slowly running out of guilty pleasure TV. Most of the stuff I usually watch on iPlayer are no longer on there :'(

Hello my image decided to error on me... I don't know why.
