|Time Taken :||8 hours|
|Mocara and I went to the Japanese Jamboree at the Thames Festival last year and we wanted to dress up, so I made this since a carnival outfit seemed appropriate. |
The black and white colour scheme is from the character creation option in Rumble Roses DX, where Nyami's carnival outfit is a secret costume. I also changed the colour of Nyami's hair and added small purple stars in my make-up to make it more colourful.
The main base of the costume is a fleece cap and velvet smock. The black squares are made from PVC to add texture and the sleeves have extra padding to make them look warm and cute. The bloomers are from my Amy costume and I already owned the boots and tights.
It was really fun dressing up for the festival, even if no-one recognised the character. Even though it was on the Southbank where there are always costumed performers, people seemed to think it was my normal clothes (normal? I was dressed as a CLOWN!) and someone thought I was advertising the Rocky Horror Picture Show LOL
