Description
I really like the outfits that Panty wears and I find her character pretty hilarious if I'm honest. I love them both but generally prefer what Panty wears!
Cosplaying this with Charlie-bear as my Stocking :D

I modified a basic bodice pattern with a circle skirt pattern and combined the two. As I've made both these things lots of times before it was easy for me to work out a pattern for it from scratch. If I had more time I would have added in more panels to make it flare out nicer but I just ran out of time as it would have involved longer time drafting the pattern!

It's made from a really nice suiting fabric that's very thick and easy to sew. I chose suiting because it doesn't crease easily unlike cotton. I wanted to use duchess satin but they sold out of red, suiting was the next best thing and I'm glad I went with this now.

I used horsehair braid along the hemline to make it look more voluminous.

The red shoes I bought from eBay, they're 6" high so they'll make me 5'9"!! Excuse me if I'm stumbling around all over the place, I usually only ever wear 4" heels the most unless they're block heels...

The bracelets I got from Primark.
Necklace from New Look.
I included them in the costs because they're pretty awful quality TBH haha. I like the look of the bracelets but I just strongly dislike the quality of Primark jewellery yet that was the only shop I could find similar bracelets at, ridiculous!
I don't have my ears' pierced so I don't have any earrings. Sorry for the inaccuracy :(

Wig I created a while back. It's two Panty wigs sewn together for extra volume.

Dress 90% (Costume test) (Posted 23rd March 2014)

Decided to try it on to see if it fits before putting on the straps, and then took a picture hurr.

I should have used this opportunity to try out the look with all the bling I've gathered too but oh well, maybe next time XD
Excuse the totally wrong bra with this cosplay, I have a strapless one to wear but couldn't be assed to change it just for the picture.

My shoes are at Charlie's house atm. So I can't wear the whole thing until Kita anyway XD

Dress 90% (Posted 23rd March 2014)

Just need straps, woo!!

I think the dress is a bit full oops. I flared it out so much that it was a circle skirt, not realising that a circle skirt would be too full. Oh well! There's horsehair braid in the hem as well which I took the idea from <a href="http://www.acparadise.com/acp/display.php?a=10763">Rufflebutt Cosplay</a>. I would have never thought to stiffen the hem!

Basically I fell in the past couple of days so I really didn't have time to make Fly Away, so I thought hey, the red dress is super simple, I can make that in a few hours! And so voila, a red dress 4hrs later...

I patterned it by taking a standard bodice pattern and a circle skirt pattern and Frankensteining the two together.
