Costume Information

Cost : £9
Time Taken : around 12 hours

Little Sister from Bioshock (unfortunately not with a Big Daddy :(). Dress was fairly straight forward to make, used blue cotton fabric and ripped the arm on one side. The sleeves were too baggy so I screwed them up and bit and sewed it down. The white patch down the front is made from a silk like fabric I had lying around. I love the massive buttons they really add to the little girl feel.
So far the grime and blood has been made from compost and red food colouring mixed with flour and baking powder.
For the syringe I cut a plastic pole in half and inserted a paint sprayer nozzle and handle through this. Inside I placed some craft foam to make sure it stays in place and also placed it around the needle (an old knitting needle) and glued that in place too. Sprayed silver and then painted bronze and gold. Will soon be sprayed with a touch of black to make it look grimey and old.
The Adam bottle is made from a mouthwash travel bottle which contains red food colouring, water, baking powder, red,yellow and gold paint. On top I stuck some craft foam and a baby bottle teat.
That's about it I think for now!:D
