|Made last minute for the Silent Hill group at Auchinawa 2008 since my friends were in it and I didn't get Puppetmon finished in time. The hat, armband and badge were made out of paper and were more effective than expected. Shoes were bought beige and painted red, cardigan was bought as a jumper then cut open and hemmed. The wig was one I already had for another costume (hence the innaccuracy). Vintage stockings and dress (oriflame overalls) kindly donated by my mum's wardrobe and now part of mine. The belt is from my Shuichi costume and the earrings were made of painted foam and sellotaped to anothe set of earrings because I forgot to buy hooks and only realised the night before at 9pm. lol.|
This was fun and comfortable to wear and I'd like to improve it for a future event. Maybe do the dying version with a whole load of fake blood.
EDIT: Reworn to Auchi 2010 with new hat, shoes (bought because I had store credit from returning a faulty item and they were the exact amount on the vouchers and only available in my size, it was fate), armband/badge from Ayacon 2009 and wig, borrowed from Nickel as I couldn't find mine anywhere. I also forgot to wear the earrings, but nobody noticed and you wouldn't have seen them through the wig anyway. I did have to pin myself into the dress a bit as my bust is significantly larger than it was in '08 and the zip won't stay up without safety pin technology... so I had unintentional cleavage as, as usual, I can't get my boobs into any of my old costumes the next time I come to wear them. Sad times. Again this was a case of, we hadn't actually got any costumes for Auchi 2 weeks before as, we kind of (as a group) forgot it was happening when it was, so it was a case of, a) what do we all already have or b) what can we make in a week? lol. Quite glad we did it as it was fun and it's us, we have to do a horror costume or a kids cartoon or a con just doesn't seem the same. Haha, and I just noticed, I had the armband on the wrong arm! Ooops! Oh well, nobody cares really.
