Description
I'm a new fan to Adventure Time but boy do I love it. After trying to decide over who I should cosplay my friends voted that I should cosplay Marceline. There are 2 different versions of her I want to do but I'm starting with this one first. Now if only I can find a hat that will fit my head...

Ah, this was you, was it? I was wondering who it was going around with the supreme hat.

Journal

Wig progress (Posted 8th August 2013)

The wig is one I bought from Coscraft. It's so soft and very thick too. I back combed the top of the wig and also the bangs. This took awhile to do as the wig is over 100cm long. I then did some simple styling at the front of the hair as Marceline's bangs aren't too styled. Unfortuently on the day the hat flattened my hair but ah well. That's cosplay for you.

Sun hat. (Posted 6th August 2013)

I bought some hessian/sack like material, some matching thread and some wire to make the hat. I first used a half circle pattern to make the top part of the hat and the part that goes onto my head. I originally used 6 segments but actually took 2 out in the end as it looked and fit better that way. After sewing them on it was time to measure and cut out the rim. I originally did it too big so had to cut in it around 10cm. I then made a big circle out of wire and hemmed into the rim of the hat. The excess of the hat in the centre I used to attach the two pieces together. Finally I got a piece of blue fabric I had in my fabric box and sewed it into a rectangle to make a brim to go around the hat.

Fangs (Posted 22nd July 2013)

I bought these fangs but I unfortuently won't be able to use them. I was born missing two teeth so my canines aren't were they are and these teeth do not fit at all! They are also very painful to get in and keep falling out even after following the instructions. A waste of money but at least I tried them.

Top, Jeans and Gloves. (Posted 20th July 2013)

I've bought the top, jeans and gloves now. I was going to make the top but I found one for sale which was much cheaper than buying the fabric and making. I've tried to make gloves in the past but it's always gone wrong so I just bought them. Plus I found them in a very good colour.

Jeans and contacts (Posted 22nd April 2013)

The jeans and contacts I now have.

I have sourced out the boots, tops, fangs, wig, gloves and make-up for the skin.

I have yet to find the right hat and I may have to make it from scratch.
