|Phineas was a costume that I've been planning to do since I was 16 (20 now) but never did. When I found out that the show was officially coming to an end on June 12th '15 I was heartbroken, and figured I'd finally get around to making the costume as a final salute. |
It means a lot to me, and still does. I mean, how many shows are written entirely off a dad-joke and a catchy song? Only one, man. Only one.

Finished (Posted 20th May 2015)
Completed the costume with time to spare on Tuesday night. The pants are resized XL denim jeans from Goodwill and the shoes were a gift from my sister that she got from Wal-mart for less than 6$, that I then painted blue. The Perry was also a gift from someone I don't know anymore that got him for me at a weekend trip to Disneyland three or so summers ago.
Altogether I'd say this is the cheapest costume I own, but not my prettiest, and will definitely be one of my favorites after the weekend. U v U
The Shirt from Hell (Posted 17th May 2015)
First shirt didn't work out.
Spent about a night sewing this new shirt. At one point, around 3AM in the morning, I was severely lacking the brain cells to keep sewing, but kept on anyway! And I accidentally sewed the shirt closed trying to get on the zipper...Flannel is not a bounce back kind of fabric, let me tell you.
Shirt Progress (Posted 7th May 2015)
Progress on the shirt is slow going, since I don't have access to an iron 24/7, but it's coming along. I'm not getting too excited about the shirt because I'm not sure how it will turn out. I've never paneled a shirt before, and most of what I make ends up too tight or lopsided or something like that.
I chose an off-white and orange flannel, but the lighting makes it look white.
