Costume Information

Description
I freakin' love AT it's so algebraic it hurts XD
PB is my favourite character by far so naturally I have to cosplay her! I love all her dresses so I hope to make as many as possible!
The fact that she is pink has nothing to do with it.... nope (I wont be painting myself pink though)

The crown is made from foam, with milliput covering it and then painted gold

Too Young (May MCM 2013) :
The dress is made from raspberry pink lycra (only fabric I could get in the right shade). On the bodice, I sewed a load of small white gems to make the dots. The collar and the waistband/bow are made from purple duchess satin and a mathematical amount of interfacing. The sleeves have backstitch embroidery in metallic ice-blue thread.

It looks like there is a group forming!
Devil_Trigger as Finn
Luminescence as Fionna
Leanne (Luminescence's friend) as Marceline
Afireinsidegirl as Cinnamon Bun

woooo!

As much as I'd love to try and cosplay Cinnamon Bun (how the heck would you make that costume?/ :P) I don't think I'll be at MCM May since our Sailor Moon group isn't going to be there, not sure yet. Either way I really would like to see your Princess Bubblegum cosplay, which version will you be doing??

I plan on doing lots of different PB cosplays, she has so many!
For May MCM I plan on being her 13-year-old version, because then I can wear my short pink wig (not wearing the long one anywhere near mcm!)

I love the dress!! I can't wait to see more photos, always love to see a fellow PB cosplayer because she seems to get so little love compared to the other characters ;U;

Journal

Too Young 3 (Posted 19th May 2013)

Started on the dress today, cutting out all the pieces for the skirt. My eyes hurt so much and my vision is still slightly yellow from staring at the lurid pink for so long. Bought some very pale blue sparkly embroidery thread for the sleeves, and I plan to put a bit of subtle embroidery around the bottom hem for an extra touch of princessy goodness

EDIT 16/5
Slowly chuffing along with some progress, finished the big-ass-bow! Have had to enlist mum to help with the dress because I've managed to become horrendously ill and am sewing at a snails pace. Won't get the embroidery done for expo boooo

EDIT 19/5
Suddenly progress! Currently working on the sleeves. Sadly my plan to do satin stitch failed epically so I've gone for a backstitch which I will jazz up when I'm not so pressed for time!

Crown (Posted 13th May 2013)

The crown base is now finished! Just needs painting.
I made the base out of craft foam, but I felt it looked too flat so I decided to cover it in milliput to make it look rounded. DUMBEST IDEA EVA.
Hopefully once it's dry and has been sanded, it'll look a lot better, but it's really obvious how inexperienced I am with this stuff!
I accidently mixed too much and so decided to add a bit of swirly detail to use up the leftover stuff (I hate wasting it, it's expensive!) and to hide the worst areas haha
